RadioPublic app comes out of beta
Jake Shapiro has announced that the RadioPublic app is now available on Android and iOS:
RadioPublic’s mission as a Public Benefit Corporation is to “help listeners discover, engage with, and reward the creators of podcasts and other audio.”
This is also our strategy, and our roadmap. We are starting with discovery, and will be layering in engagement next, followed by rewards — both for producers and listeners themselves.
Lots of interesting stuff from the press release: no account creation requirements (hallelujah!), it unbundles episodes into cross-show genre playlists and it has both human and machine based recommendations.
Expect an in-depth review in due course.
