NPR’s newest program “Invisibilia” premiered Jan. 9, and by the end of the month it had already reached several big milestones.
According to a press release from the organization, the show will have more downloads per episode in January than any other NPR podcast. “Invisibilia” episodes have already been downloaded or streamed more than 10 million times, earning it the number one position on iTunes podcast ranking.
NPR Vice President of Programming Eric Nuzum noted in the release that “Invisiblia” is breaking new ground while confirming “that expert story-telling, approaching difficult subjects with a combination of rigorous reporting and a human perspective, works across all platforms.”
The radio show/podcast, hosted by Alix Spiegel and Lulu Miller, was made available on all NPR platforms from its introduction, and is now broadcast on more than 300 public radio stations. Excerpts can be heard on “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition,” and have aired on “This American Life” and WNYC(FM)’s “Radiolab.”
NPR launched “Fresh Air” as its first podcast in 2007, and as of early 2015, NPR podcast programs receive more than 69 million downloads a month.
