  • Active Trash Fire

  • No way to reset your queue

    By Phil Armstrong
    I downloaded this app for one podcast, and while I was in the app, I thought I might try out another podcast. The other podcast turned out to be terrible, and now every time I finish an episode of the show I DO like, it automatically resumes playing the terrible podcast episode from before that I stopped listening to halfway through. There’s no way to reset the queue from what I can see, and I can’t stop this app from playing this terrible podcast every time I finish an episode of the show I like. Deleting and re-downloading the app doesn’t work. Bad app I’m going to ditch as soon as the show I downloaded it for concludes its season.
  • Glitchy and doesn’t make for easy listening

    By gwflistener28
    I wish this app was better. Most expensive app I own and least smoothie experience.
  • Spooked

    By sabrinacos
    As much as I enjoy this show, I don’t want to pay for another subscription service. $7.99 is too much to pay a month.
  • Poor interface.

    By Bryan.Porter
    Like many I came to Luminary because of a specific podcast that they picked up. My initial review talked about some basic features that just didn’t seem to exist. Now several hours later I’m finding the “missing features” so I’ll remove those comments, and just state that the interface is glitchy and inconsistent. I’m working my way through this season of The AM Archive. As soon as I get through it I will cancel my subscription. Maybe I’ll renew when the next season starts. More likely I’ll wait until it ends, renew, binge and drop. I’d rather listen to a few adds than pay Yet Another Monthly Subscription Fee.
  • Go out of business

    By jmw9900
    That is all. Stop paywalling my favorite shows.
  • Great content

    By arnbar123
    Love the premium content on this app. David Axelrod, Trevor Noah, and many other great shows.
  • How to curate?

    By LaLeona122
    I love the content, I went there to follow The Bright Sessions and Spooked (note to Luminary - I would also have come to you just to follow “Ghosts In the Burb”, you might consider pursuing Liz Sower, she’s an amazing talent). My only complaint is that I can’t figure out how to remove a show from “My Shows”. My sense is that it’s something simple that I'm just not seeing, please advise.
  • Podcast stops every few seconds

    By Yucajey Dijo Que No
    Like other listeners, I’ve been unable to listen to a single Fiasco episode without unexpected halts every couple of seconds. It’s extremely annoying.
  • Great but missing simple feature

    By eat tangerine
    Why can’t I create playlists? What is this continue listening that I have no idea what’s being played next? Please fix and I’ll give the last star
