This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
CatoAudio—in one simple, elegant app—provides instant access to the expert perspectives, compelling insights, and insider viewpoints offered by Cato Institute and Libertarianism.org podcasts. Includes favorites such as the Cato Daily Podcast and Libertarianism.org's Free Thoughts.
Wherever you may be listening, CatoAudio has all the features you expect from a high quality podcast app:
* SUBSCRIBE & NOTIFY - Subscribe to obtain the podcasts you want and receive notifications when new ones are available.
* MINI-PLAYER - Listen to one podcast while browsing for others.
* DOWNLOAD - Store podcasts for listening at your convenience or for when you're offline.
* FULLY INTEGRATED – Set CatoAudio to play in the background so you can lock your phone and listen, or integrate with AirPlay anywhere, any time.

I liked it!
A few suggestions
I'll give the app a five stars rating if the following changes are implemented (otherwise people are better off just subscribing to these podcasts using Apple's Podcasts app):
- Add the "Libertarianism.org Guides" and "Cato Out Loud" podcast feeds to the app
- Add a "play at double speed" feature
- Add a "mark as played/unplayed" feature (where you can select multiple episodes and apply the change to all of them at once)
- Allow users to sort the order/locations of the podcast feed "covers"
