At every given moment, we’re surrounded by hundreds of stories - past and present. The Nearstory platform gives listeners immediate access to immersive stories linked to their surroundings. It curates podcasts, historical speeches, and other audio stories from high quality sources and delivers them to listeners based on their location or destination – all through a simple interface.
Nearstory gives listeners complete freedom to listen anywhere, near or far. Nearstory uses GPS to deliver amazing stories located near the listener or based on the destination. Leveraging a network that we have created, Nearstory links great audio stories to a geolocation, making it easy to find stories with little to no searching. Listen while working, walking, commuting, or while on the next weekend road trip. Nearstory is your companion to discover and reconnect with the stories based on your location!
