NPR’s catalogue ranges from business, comedy, and education, to technology, true crime and more. Deezer podcast fans will have immediate access to popular shows including: TED Radio Hour, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, Planet Money and Fresh Air. Budding journalists and news junkies, can take a cue and listen to NPR’s first Pulitzer award winning investigative podcast, No Compromise on gun rights.
“NPR’s shows and podcasts have an undeniable international appeal due to its universal appeal. From smart journalism to everyday issues including finance and entrepreneurship, to light-hearted comedy and entertainment – we love being able to offer a wide variety of options from NPR to our global audience,” said Camille Sauzières, Non-Music Content Operations Manager, Deezer.
