Alerts Don’t Match the Actual Schedule

if I want to listen to the live feed, I have to leave the stream on all the time because the notifications aren’t in sync with the actual live feed. I kept missing the live shows I’m interested in because the alerts would go off a few hours too late. I changed the time zone settings on my computer (thinking that would fix it), but still get the late notifications (or no notifications at all).

It’s an awesome app, but I wish the alerts were in sync with the actual schedule. I’m using tweetbot notifications for @5by5 right now until the current notifications get fixed. I definitely recommend getting this app, though.
