La piattaforma Stitcher, che raccoglie i migliori contenuti della talk radio e dei podcast, cerca di invertire la tendenza dotando la nuova versione della sua app per iPhone/Android (qui la versione AppStore) di una maggiore integrazione con Facebook e di nuovi strumenti che permettono all'utilizzatore di rendersi conto di quali altre persone ascoltano gli stessi contenuti, un canale di ritorno e condivisione che restituisce la dimensione dell'audience alla radio asincrona e ai palinsesti fai-da-te. Stitcher, scrive Beth Murphy sul blog della piattaforma "talk Web radio", «reinventa una esperienza di ascolto condivisa per la radio di notizie», tra l'altro una funzionalità, che può portare un vento di novità anche nella radio convenzionale
