A godsend for the busy commuter with their own set of wheels, Otto Radio is your aural filter of podcasts, music and news designed to free up your hands and keep you in the loop about the things most important to you.
Fred Jacobs, CEO and cofounder of Jacobs Media, added that Otto Radio “is really an interesting concept because podcasting is just this chaotic mess of content out there. It is still so difficult for people to be able to curate and use—and here’s a product that appears to be able to algorithmically put it together to match your lifestyle, your interests, listening time...all those things."
