Who are we?

  • Our target user is someone who wants to be well-read without reading. They value their time, learning, and being informed.
  • In broad terms, we believe that every piece of high-quality content on the internet should be available and searchable in audio form. Articles, podcasts, videos, and people — and we're working to make that a reality.

  • We don't have a ton of meetings. If we can effectively solve a problem async, then we do.
