Pandora for podcasts
This is an awesome app for people who love podcasts but don't want to deal with finding them on their own.

Shortened my Commute! Kind of.
This app seriously improved my commute to and from work. I listen to stories and newscasts and, well, everything. Since I started listening, my commute seems shorter. It is certainly more enjoyable. I've been introduced to some great podcasts (here's looking at you, "The Moth"), and love having old favorites played to me frequently (missed you, "This American Life" and "StarDate"). It's quickly become one of my favorite, most frequently used apps. Love!

I LOVE it
Swell has been my favorite app since the day I installed it. Personalized content selection. You can stop and start where you left off, skip stuff you don't want to hear, remember stuff you liked, and more.

Perfect for drive time
Between work and kids I have far less time for reading/learning than I'd like. My car time is some of the only time where I've got long stretches to concentrate, but obviously can't be reading. Swell let's me listen to fabulous quality content (NPR, TEDtalks..) with full control to skip, pause and browse by topic.

I tried the podcast thing back in the day, it just didn’t do it for me. In theory it is a cool thing, but I just couldn’t get into it. I don’t like listening to the radio, not having control over what I’m listening to, and wasting my time surfing the channels. Needless to say, I’m pretty picky. Along came Swell! Not sure how I found out about Swell, but I’m happy I did. I hate to compare, but this is like Pandora for podcasts! You choose a category, whatever you want to listen to, news, comedy, business, tech, culture, whatever! If you know of a podcast that you like or want to try, you can even search for it and Swell will play it for you. You can bookmark and thumbs up podcasts, and if you skip a podcast, Swell knows it probably wasn’t your favorite. Like any new (one sided) relationship, it took a couple of weeks for Swell to get to know me. I was mostly interested in tech news, comedy stuff, and TED talks. I’ve discovered two podcasts that I listen to religiously. Tech News Today (TNT), made by This Week In Tech (TWIT), and If I Were You Show, by Jake & Amir. These accompany me to and from work, and if I’m feeling lonely on a long drive. Swell knows I don’t want to listen to anything else, and always has these podcasts in the queue, ready to go! Swell will sometimes play something random, and it’s usually pretty cool! I’m pretty fanatic about Breaking Bad, this last season was a turbulent time for me. Feeling so happy to be watching such incredible television, and sad that it was all going to be over soon. I don’t know how Swell knew about my obsession, but a couple of weeks ago, a Breaking Bad podcast came on Swell when I was driving home from work. I was like, “cool, some Breaking Bad fan going through the trouble to talk about the show.” NO. A thousand times better. I did not know that the creators of Breaking Bad had their own podcast, where after an episode aired, they would post a podcast talking about the episode, scene by scene! I discovered this podcast after the penultimate episode, and I was so sad I missed the other ones! It was incredible to hear from Vince Gilligan and the other creators of Breaking Bad, listening to their motivations, and realizing all of the subtle cues in the show that I missed on the first run. This podcast made me so happy. Thanks to Swell for that! Swell is a part of my daily life, and one reason I’m thinking I may soon have to upgrade my data plan. I have my most useful apps, my most fun apps, and other apps I like, but I think Swell is my favorite overall app. Thank you Swell, for turning me on to podcasts, and helping me discover and learn about all sorts of things!
