Listen to Serial

 

Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life that tells a true story over the course of an entire season. You can read more about the specific plot of Serial here.

 

To listen to Serial:

  1. Add the Serial station at www.pandora.com/serial
  2. Select which episode you would like to listen to via the episode list (you will need to scroll down to find the earliest episodes). If you're new to Serial, be sure to start with Episode 1 of the season you want to listen to, and listen in chronological order.

Since each episode is broken up into five minute chunks, you also have the ability to pick up where you left off, go back to re-listen, or skip ahead. However, you won't be able to rewind or fast forward within each five minute piece.

 

For further instructions on how to listen to Serial, please carefully read our blog posting about it by clicking here.

 

This podcast series will act differently from your other Pandora stations, so reading through the blog will guide you through how to get the best experience out of this station.

Listen to Thumbprint Radio

 

Thumbprint Radio plays your thumbed up songs from all your stations, as well as other songs related to those thumbs.

 

You can add the station by searching Thumbprint Radio in the Create a Station field or by going to this link: http://pdora.co/thumbprint.

 

If you don't see it, you may need to create a few more stations and give each of them some thumbs up. Once you've given enough thumb feedback, you should see the option to add the station the following day.

 

Also, the stations will need to be created from tracks or artists that are not Holiday, Children's, or Comedy, as these tracks tend not to mix as smoothly with other thumbed up tracks from all your stations.

 

To fine tune your Thumbprint Radio Station, you can thumb up or down the tracks that play, as you would on any other station you create.
