This American Life

This American Life

We’re sorry to report that on December 31, 2020 we will be closing this app. We’re doing this for a few reasons. The biggest one is that usage has significantly declined.

We launched the app in 2010—10 years ago!—when we kept only one episode in our podcast feed and had no mobile website, and when slower data speeds often made streaming difficult. Now, we keep 10 episodes in our feed, and nearly all listening happens on other podcast apps. The app is expensive to maintain, and we can no longer justify that cost relative to usage.

All episodes are available to stream or download for free on our website: thisamericanlife.org.

We’ve also added the ability to export your heard and bookmarked episodes from this app, so you don’t lose that data. Questions? Email us at web@thislife.org.
