Long time / first time! Letting everybody know about a project I’ve been working on: www.longlisten.com
Since 2010, I’ve listened to over 500 audiobooks and countless hours of podcasts. Put another way, I’m a huge audio fan.
In that time, finding quality podcasts has been a constant pain. Recommendation lists are always hit or miss, and there are many gems that fly under the radar. The “top” rated podcasts often feature the most recognizable names, not necessarily the best content. In general, sifting through the latest and greatest just takes a lot of time and effort.
A few friends reached out looking for recommendations – then a few more – and finally I decided to build an app around the idea. Right now, the functionality is very limited, as this is a side project. If there is more public interest in the idea, then I will focus on building better curation tools, email connectivity, etc.
Also looking for curators. I gotta believe my fellow Bubblers like podcasts, so please drop me a line via the site if you have recommendations, feedback, or ideas.
