This New Less-Is-More Podcasting App Helps Us Digest the News
One upside to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis: a renaissance of podcasts and audio content to take in. These days, we’re tuning into the Curio.io app for a curated selection of the best narrated and audio journalism being produced today. The helpful, easy-to-navigate app spotlights top stories by leading media outlets including the Financial Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post, and The Economist—and we’re chuffed to have The Slowdown in such great company, with our very own At a Distance podcast now available on the platform, too. With personalized feeds and unlimited ad-free listening both online and offline, it’s a small luxury to be able to unplug and listen to the news, unmoored from the screen, and away from all the attention-clamoring push notifications.
