PRX Launches This American Life App
Ira Glass groupies, rejoice. The Public Radio Exchange (PRX), the Cambridge, MA-based clearinghouse for public radio programming, said today that it has created an iPhone app for This American Life, the popular weekly radio show from Chicago Public Radio. The $2.99 app, available starting today at Apple’s iTunes App Store, offers access to the complete audio archive of This American Life episodes going back to 1995, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with the show’s producers. PRX, which was profiled by Xconomy last August, also created the Public Radio Player, an app that lets iPhone users access live and on-demand programming from scores of public radio stations around the United States.
