Medium has replaced Wikipedia as the unintended reading-based time suck for me. I'll start reading one and end up on there for a couple of hours without realising.

Play (for Medium)

Listen to Medium articles with a Chrome Extension

Tobias Herber- Student. Computers. If-statements.
You can listen to many high quality articles from medium.

I use Play.ht for providing audio for my Medium readers. They are robotic voices, but it gets the job done and it's very easy to get started. You can even embed the player inside your own articles.
Niv Dror- Words @ProductHunt & @AngelList
This seems like a very popular Chrome extension for listening to articles. Did well in the Product Hunt launch 😊

Medium is currently my favorite product and I'm a super happy paid user. Not only does it provide the best experience for (quality) reading posts in the entire web but I completely agree with Ev's vision.

Medium Publications

Launch your own publication with a custom domain
