What podcasts are currently available with NPR+?

Many of NPR's most popular podcasts are included, like Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!+, The NPR Politics Podcast+, Planet Money+, and more. See for the (always growing) full list of shows.

Wait... Do I have to pay to listen to these NPR podcasts now?

No! NPR podcasts will remain free (but will include inserted sponsorship messages).

All NPR+ versions of these podcasts offer sponsor-free listening (which removes the automatically inserted sponsor-breaks wherever possible), and a select number of them also offer bonus content.

I already have a recurring donation to my local public radio station. Do I get NPR+ podcasts automatically?

Unfortunately no, you do not have automatic access to NPR+ podcasts due to technical limitations of this new program. At this time, you'll need to select a plan on this site. Thank you for supporting your local station and for considering NPR+!

How do I listen to a podcast's sponsor-free feed?

Once you've signed up, you'll see a page with instructions for setting up your feed(s) in your podcast app of choice. The process is very simple, and you can always access instructions by signing in and navigating to the Account page, then selecting Podcasts in the menu on the top left.

Can I access all available NPR+ content as a bundle, or do I need to get each podcast separately?

Currently, the NPR+ bundle is only available in a select number of locations. If you do not see the NPR+ bundle option at the top of this page, then it is not currently available in your area. To access all of your favorite podcasts' NPR+ feeds, you should subscribe to each show individually. (Want the NPR+ bundle in your area? Let us know here)
