In an era of self-publishing, quality articles and smart, thought-provoking audio are in infinite supply. Though choice sounds like a positive thing, it is often paralyzing. When faced with pages and pages of unfamiliar search results, it’s often just easier to stick to our tried and true outlets.

Who wants to be stressed out by something that is supposed to be fun? No one, that’s who!

At Audioburst, content discovery is a topic that is very close to our hearts. This is why we are pleased to announce that we are officially live on Flipboard, the internet’s leading news content discovery platform (CLICK HERE to follow our publication).

Starting now, Flipboard users can enjoy our signature short-form audio ‘bursts’ alongside their favorite website, news feed, and social media content.

We’ve launched with 10 magazines including Top Stories, Business News, Sports News, World News, Entertainment News, and Offbeat Stories, among others. With topics so varied, there’s something to pique everyone’s interest, and as usual with Audioburst, you’ll only find relevant content.

Today’s on-the-go listener doesn’t have any time for filler…and neither do we!

Audioburst on Flipboard has been quietly undergoing a beta period for the past few weeks, and we have been blown away by the response so far.

Flipboard users have listened to more than 300,000 ‘bursts’ and more than 600,000 minutes of top-notch, curated audio content. It’s been amazing to see Flipboard users embrace the burst, and we can’t wait for you to start seeing bursts popping up in your Cover Stories too.

What are you waiting for?! Head on over to Flipboard and hit the follow button today!
