    Second try on this... Good content. I had to uninstall because it continually starts on its own, and usually when I didn't want it to. It had to be force stopped 30+ times a day. Will find another service.

    Great access to a variety of programs that are bound to interest all types of people. Engineers, scientists, builders, intellectuals, parents and the average Joe.

    I used to adore this app. Recently it has stopped allowing me to play any audio. Pressing "play" makes it start to appear to queue up audio, then the box disappears and nothing happens. Now how will I get my Radiolab fix?

    When working for a high energized law firm, you want to be calm and comfortable. This station provides all the necessary news, human content, and classical vibes to obtain this standard.

    I do a lot of driving, acid I've really gotten into listening to podcasts. This is by far the best app I've tried. I've been using it for well over a year. The only change I would suggest is to be able to scroll through ALL of the podcasts, nit just through the categories.
