I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
with TuneIn Radio. Works well on Android phones.
Tune in works well on iPhone.
I have the yourmuze app on adroid.
My problem: the podcasts on the wtka website, flash keeps crashing (both in ie and firefox).
Is/was Brian on this week?
I'm pretty sure that it was mentioned last week that Brian would NOT be on this week as he usually appears on Thursday and with it being Thanksgiving and all, that he would not appear this week.
Actually, they said that they were going to try and move his segment to Tuesday because of the Thanksgiving holiday. That being said, I don't believe Brian appeared this week.
For anyone that wants a good way to listen to the podcasts on an android device, this is what I do.
Install Google Listen on your android. Once you have logged in, it should add a "Listen Subscriptions" section to your Google Reader account. So go to Google Reader (www.google.com/reader/) and click "Subscribe" and enter the url: http://wtka.podhoster.com/rss/3088/
This should subscribe you to the podcast mp3's. In Google Listen, its just a matter of navigating to the wtka podcasts under My Subscriptions and playing the podcasts. The one downside is that the podcasts can be named semi weirdly, and they are uploaded in random orders. So when I start listening, I go through the podcasts and starting with track one and going through to the last track I click "add to queue" and this basically creates a playlist.
I emailed them about the issue a week ago and never got a reply back
I use tune in but often miss much of the show. My favorite was when it was loaded on iTunes.
It still works.
1. Go to the iTunes store.
2. Search for 'wtka"--you'll get two results, "wtka" and "WTKA Podcasts."
3. Select the first, "wtka."
YES!!!! I had been checking the wtka podcast, which is where I had gone this past summer.
Thank you much
According to their FB page they are working on it still.
Takes a while to load but has all the recent podcasts in MP3.
WTKA/TuneIn combo is awesome except for their commercials, which have nearly driven me to insanity... LiveUnited!... Lloyd Ganton argghhhh
As soon as I discovered TuneIn radio for my android over the summer I started listening to WTKA every day at work. Then, after about a month or so, it started saying "station restricted by broadcaster" whenever I tried to bring up WTKA. I then switched to Detroit sports talk radio, and after about 2 weeks of problem free listening, it started doing the same thing. Never did figure out what was wrong, but it was maddening.
I can only listen to 97.1 on radio.com app along with all other cbs owned stations. wtka is still available on Tunein. That is weird it said restricted for wtka.
On the iPhone I use this app to listen to stations all over. Wtka works great. U can listen live. Also, while any national shows are on Wtka they replay the Michigan Insider online at various times of the day.
Otherwise, use the podcast but it's not always updated right away.
