Hey PH! I'm a 15 year old who likes to listen to podcasts, so I thought I would build a tool for listening to the news quickly. radione.ws plays the top summaries continuously and quickly, all in your browser. I started this project with a "I'll see if I can do it" mindset, as I just started my first computer science class last year. After a week of playing around with code, I'm stoked to announce this awesome player. I hope you like it!

@w More power to you Riley πŸ™ Glad to see you shipping young and I think this is just the beginning for you :) Like the way you MVP'd it; maybe now convert it into a simple mobile app that could be bookmarked? Either ways, can't wait to see the other things you ship 🚒 P.S: If you wanna be a part of a community of really cool student makers from around the 🌏 like you, let me know ✨
@amrith Definitely, this would be a cool app to make. Feathrd looks awesome, I don't know why I didn't join sooner. Will submit an application now. Thanks!
@w I love it! The site is super clean and intuitive, I love that I just land there and click one button and *boom* you are already meeting my needs. Great clean product design.
Nice job @w! It's a handy way to listen to the news without all the other extra distractions.
@w hi Riley, congrats on your product. Do you have a content distribution deal with these news providers?
LOL β€œListen to news summaries in your browser, made by a 15 y/o” β€” I thought β€œwhy would I want to hear a 15yo reading news to me?” πŸ˜‚
@pixelmelter πŸ˜‚ Yeah, I don't think that would be a popular product
Nice, @w! Love the simplicity of the site. What, if anything, are you planning to add?
@rrhoover Hey Ryan! I'm looking into adding more providers, maybe CBS and ABC (Australia). Long-term: possibly making an app version with Phonegap. Thanks for all the support today!

Love how to the point it is and is a clutter-free way to listen to just news :)

Think I'm gonna make this one of the primary ways I consume daily news πŸ™

Pros:

Clean, minimal and just works.

Cons:

Added mobile functionality and listen to news in the background on-the-go

Great website! Never listen to the news as a short summary and often just use dedicated apps but this is much more handy!

Pros:

Love the simple design and great functionality

Cons:

Would love keybind support for potentially pausing play outside of chrome
