Luminary is an Android application offering access to original podcasts. There are dozens of shows on various topics available with a subscription.
Unlike big services like the Breaker podcast app, Luminary offers a relatively small number of shows. However, this is original content you will not find anywhere else. The producers are famous actors, comedians and journalists as well as periodicals like New York Magazine. You can find series featuring Trevor Noah, Lena Dunham and Russell Brand, among other media persons.
Besides its original content, Luminary is a practical player with all essential features. For example, you can stream audio or download podcasts to listen to later. If you leave off in the middle of the episode, the app remembers it and offers you to continue listening from that moment. In addition, you may set bookmarks to quickly return to them later. Naturally, the customizable list of favorites is also available for your convenience.
Among other functions, there is the adjustable playback speed and sleep timer. Luminary supports streaming podcasts to any Airstream compatible and Bluetooth devices.
