Introducing Stitcher Premium

Dear Stitcher Listeners,

I am thrilled to introduce Stitcher Premium. It’s a great new way for Stitcher listeners to access top-notch, truly premium audio content that you won’t find anywhere else.

With this service you get access to hundreds of hours of original, exclusive and ad-free shows, curated especially for people who love podcasts. You get it all right in the same Stitcher app you already know and love.

Stitcher Premium is the place to find critically acclaimed and cutting-edge podcasts starring top talent. It’s the audio equivalent of peak TV from HBO or Netflix.

There’s the tense football drama “FRUIT,” produced by Issa Rae, the breakout star and creator of HBO’s “Insecure.” The New York Times and the producers of “Welcome to Night Vale” agree that the atomic era noir “A Night Called Tomorrow,” created by and starring James Urbaniak (“Venture Bros.,” “Difficult People”), is one of the top fiction podcasts. Fans of Monty Python will love the madcap comedy adventure of “The Mysterious Secrets of Uncle Bertie’s Botanarium,” starring Jemaine Clement from “The Flight of the Conchords.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Stitcher Premium is home to the entire archive of all Earwolf shows, from chart-topping favorites “Comedy Bang! Bang!” and “How Did This Get Made?,” to deep cuts, such as “U Talking U2 to Me?” (with U2 as actual guests!) and “The Andy Daly Podcast Project.” Plus hear every single episode of “WTF with Marc Maron,” including essential interviews that defined podcasting, with personalities like Robin Williams, Louis CK, and President Barack Obama.

On top of that Stitcher Premium has more than 120 albums from Aziz Ansari, Maria Bamford, Kevin Hart, and more. Plus, hear exclusive bonus episodes from chart-topping shows, from the improv comedy of Superego to the insightful “Game of Thrones” analysis of “Game of Owns.”

New shows and episodes are added every single single week, so you’ll never run out of funny, informative, moving and thrilling audio.

Stitcher Premium is only $4.99 a month, and there’s nothing new to install. All these great shows are available right in Stitcher when you subscribe.

At $34.99 an annual subscription to Stitcher Premium is the best deal, saving you 40% off the monthly price.

You can take Stitcher Premium for a test ride now. Get a 1-week free trial when you sign up for a monthly plan, or get a one month free trial with an annual plan (seriously, this is our best deal).

I’m really certain that you’ll love Stitcher Premium. But I also want you to know that the free Stitcher service isn’t going anywhere. We’re grateful for the support of every Stitcher listener and we want you to know that we’ll continue to offer the best podcast listening platform, with a ton of new stuff in store for 2017. Stitcher will always have an enormous selection of free podcasts, and the app will stay free, as well.

I’m very excited for you to try Stitcher Premium, and I’d love to know what you think. Send us your feedback, including what types of shows and features you’d like to see added in the future, to:
