Having already streamed "SERIAL," PANDORA is now streaming the show that spawned the popular podcast, "THIS AMERICAN LIFE." PANDORA will offer new TAL episodes every MONDAY.
“PANDORA listeners loved SERIAL, to the tune of over 15.6 million streams of Season One and Season Two,” said PANDORA Chief Product Officer CHRIS PHILLIPS. “There’s a huge appetite for a wider range of entertainment and deeper listening experience, and we can’t wait to introduce our listeners to the compelling storytelling in THIS AMERICAN LIFE.”
“Putting SERIAL on PANDORA was an experiment, because we really didn't know if their listeners wanted to tune into hour-long stories. As it turns out... millions of them did!” said TAL Host IRA GLASS. “We hope and believe that the same thing will be true for THIS AMERICAN LIFE, and PANDORA will turn their listeners into fans. Because, you know, we like it when people listen.”
