Introducing Download

 
 

Today, we are happy to announce the newest Relay FM podcast, Download.

The truth is there are way too many tech stories to keep up with each week. That's where Download comes in. Here's the idea:

What are the most important technology stories right now? From products and companies to services and trends, Download’s weekly panel of experts analyzes the biggest topics in tech ... and a few you may have missed.

Download is hosted by Jason Snell and produced by Stephen Hackett. It will feature a rotating panel of guests every week and the most important stories across the broad spectrum of consumer tech.

Episode 1 is out now. You can check it out here.

Here's how to subscribe:

Announcing Almanac, with Andy Ihnatko

Today we are thrilled to unveil a new show that Andy Ihnatko has been working on. Almanac is an audio exploration of all of the things that pique Mr. Ihnatko's interest. He'll be covering the news of the week that has caught his eye, as well as bringing together a cavalcade of interesting characters to discuss topics ranging from the arts, to modern life, to technology. In Andy's own words, 'You'll never know what you'll find inside, but you'll find it interesting'.

Andy has been such a pleasure to work with as one of the hosts of the Material podcast, and we couldn't be more excited to be working with him on this new show. We're really excited to see the ways that Andy is going to be pushing the format of his show in to wonderful and varied areas, to create something different to what you've heard before.

Episode 1 of Almanac is available today, so go subscribe now!

Introducing Mixed Feelings

Today, we're very pleased to announce the newest show on Relay FM: Mixed Feelings.

It's a show about news, politics and pop culture.

Every episode, hosts Quinn Rose and Gillian Parker talk about their favorite stories of the week. Topics vary from the serious to the silly, with most episodes featuring at least one random current even that has nothing to do with ... anything, really.

Mixed Feelings is a new kind of show for Relay FM, and we are super excited about it. Gillian and Quinn are great together, and while their points of view on the world don't always agree, the show is always respectful, thoughtful and entertaining.

You can subscribe to Mixed Feelings a bunch of different ways:
