Stitcher Radio is an app designed to allow users to listen to thousands of radio broadcasts and podcasts from around the world. Users may listen live and on the go through Stitcher Radio‘s mobile app or on a home computer. The app, which removes the need for users to sync new podcasts to their mobile device, enhances the process of listening to AM/FM radio on the go. Users will enjoy the benefits of Stitcher Radio‘s “favorite” system which allows them to save their most listened to stations, as well as share these stations with friends and family. The app also recommends new listening experiences based on the users’ preferences and listening habits, becoming “smarter” at making recommendations over time. This app contains no inappropriate content on the surface, but usage by young children should be monitored by parents, as Stitcher Radio includes thousands of potentially mature stations and programs. This app is recommended for guided use with kids ages 6 and up.



Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Whether listening to a recommended podcast or radio station, or simply browsing the music stations for a new genre or song, users will find an enormous amount of content that won't appear on a standard AM/FM radio. The app strives to introduce users to new content and experiences, helping them keep an open mind when it comes to their media choices. Stitcher Radio will even help users locate content that might be personally interesting by learning about a listener's preferences and habits and recommending new stations and podcasts over time. Users may also benefit from sharing their listening experiences with friends and family via the app's social features, or searching out specific content related to school, like science podcasts or other academic media.


Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

Stitcher Radio offers a great opportunity for users to exercise their Self-Awareness thinking skill, as the app contains thousands of stations including music, news, comedy, and even podcasts from lesser known broadcasters and amateurs. Whether looking to expand knowledge in a particular interest area, or browsing for something completely new and different, Stitcher Radio has an abundance of content to a myriad of interests and tastes. Users can follow politics through a number of local and national NPR stations and programs, or listen to new music on one of thousands of rock, rap, or easy-listening radio stations. There is even a slew of academic-related shows ranging from history, science, math and grammar (such as Grammar Girl). Understanding, expanding, and developing interest areas using Stitcher Radio is a great way to exercise the Self-Awareness thinking skill.
