Bullhorn is a good looking podcast app that offers common sense functionality with award winning features and simplicity.
How is Bullhorn Different?
Bullhorn allows an option for users to listen to podcasts without data or wifi. Our unique call-to-listen feature allows listeners to dial a phone number to listen to their favorite podcasts. So the listener is using their cell phone minutes plan instead of their data. This extends the reach of podcasts to listeners in rural and underserved communities that may not be able to afford or access to reliable data.
How does Bullhorn Make Money?
As said above, we don't run in-app ads or have a premium version. Instead, we have revenue sharing agreements with content producers and phone companies to distribute podcasts through our dial-in network. This means that as long as you have an unlimited minute plan (which 97% of the US does) there is no cost to you for listening to podcasts.
Bullhorn doesn’t have my favorite podcast
We are sorry! But we can fix this. If your a podcaster go to bullhorn.fm/podcasters to submit your RSS feed. If your a listener you can go into your bullhorn app, go to your explore page and then select the icon in the top left corner and request the podcast you want to add to the Bullhorn library. We should be able to add the podcast within 20 minutes.
