New podcast discovery app Wilson takes cues from print magazines

As podcasting grows in popularity and audience size, more platforms are emerging to aid with discovery. Wilson is a discovery tool inspired by both magazines and Longreads, a curated website for longform articles. The team behind Wilson selects podcast episodes centered on a topic such as the Supreme Court, loneliness, community, or the World Cup. The collections are presented with cover art and a short description. The playlist introducing Wilson includes a range of shows, from popular productions such as 2 Dope Queens and This American Life to less visible shows such as Hello From the Magic Tavern.

Wilson is available on the web and as an iOS app.
