It is no exaggeration to say that without NPR, podcasting might never have become a thing. In the past decade, the publisher has seen enormous success in bringing high-quality, on-demand audio and video stories to the public with highly popular podcasts like Code Switch, Throughline, Invisibilia, The Indicator and others, currently providing more than fifty titles for listeners' enjoyment. For nearly a decade, NPR has dominated the top podcast charts on iTunes, Podtrac or Google Play on almost any given week. On Monday June 29, 2020, NPR launched its latest news podcast, Consider This, a rebranding and slight evolution of its critically important "pop-up" podcast, Coronavirus Daily, which launched in March 2020 to keep listeners informed at the start of the global pandemic.
