Great on the go!


C-SPAN Radio is great to listen on my commute into work every morning. It’s a reliable way to get your news first thing in the morning and learn even more from their various podcasts. I very much appreciate all of the hard work that goes into making this public service available. Thanks C-SPAN!

The CSPAN Radio app is great if you like political news. It seems they have made it much more stable. It now stays connected much better, even in rural areas.

I was using a different general radio app (on iPhone). But lately that app does not like to stay connected and very often repeats words or phrases. So the C-SPAN radio app is now a better alternative.

Rather excellent, but lectures in history is too lib


Is a great app the political news is interesting but can be dry. I also enjoy the lectures in history podcasts but the prof. Tend to be more of the liberal variety (wish there was more diversity of opinion) is rate the app as a whole a 4.5
