This American Life

Ira Glass came to Rodrigo to optimize the current This American Life desktop site to have a fantastic mobile web experience.


Studio Rodrigo


Ira Glass asked Studio Rodrigo to make a fantastic mobile web destination for This American Life. I made finding and conusming their award-winning content central to the experience.

Most users are looking for the most recent episodes—after listing those, the page seamlessly turns into an easily filter-able archive of content..

Tap the player from anywhere in the experience and get rich detail about the episode you're currently listening to.

Browsing all episodes is also the main focus in the navigation—and all other items map neatly back to the navigation of the desktop web.
