Why must I suffer?!!

I only got the app for Guys we F*cked, I wish they would change to a better functioning app. I always experience issues. Half the time in the middle of listening it stops and won’t play until I get to my destination. This app is hot fire garbage. Please fix this. I hate that I’m paying not to use it.

Fire your UX Designer

Came for the content, and I’ve subscribed for the year because I love Spooked by Snap Judgement, but the interface on the app is not great. The layout doesn’t make sense to me and it somehow feels outdated. I also find it to be slower than other apps.

App works fine but majority of content can be accessed elsewhere

I signed for midnight miracle which I enjoyed but was extremely short lived. After that I consumed a lot of Talib’s content but it makes it’s way to YouTube so there’s that. I liked the Seattle SuperSonics series but that too is on Apple Podcasts. I assume the value entirely rests on your content preferences but I felt like I paid $35 for about 8 episodes of a podcast. Not angry but not renewing. The app itself is pretty solid and it was pleasant enough to use.

Glad to have Russell’s format available to my ears and my mind..

I can hear you, Russell. Kudos to Luminary for having the foresight to host Russell’s brand of social consciousness. The site is easily navigable. Looking forward to getting more acquainted. Glad tidings!

Spooked gave me demonic sleep paralysis

UPDATE; I loved this app mainly for Spooked podcast but the other day I fell asleep listening to it and I had sleep paralysis for the first time in YEARS and i tried to open my eyes but couldnt and each time could hear demons screaming inside me. In the dream where I was aware I was sleeping and trying to wake up but couldn’t I felt possessed by demons. I asked my friend to pull the demons out of me and then I started to yell Jesus and it stopped and I finally woke up. Sure think of me as crazy. I used to hear oh sleep paralysis is just your soul trying to go back to your body and I used to believe that until now. After doing a lot of research on it, I now know that demons are real and listening to scary stuff about ghosts and demons invites them into you while you sleep. Do your research. Sorry I had to delete my membership and the app. Old review: I really really wish i can sort my episodes better. 1. If an episode is already played, I don’t even want to see it on the list. Yet it’s still there and keeps randomly playing old episodes 2. I want to sort and see only luminary episodes and not the ones from the Podcast app because I already listened to all those. It’s frustrating to have to keep listening to every episode only to realize you already heard it then have to manually mark it as played and then keep going down the list but the old played episodes still show on the list.

Perfectly fine content, Terrible app

I am sorry that I paid for a year subscription instead of month to month. This app crashes several times EVERY TIME it’s open. I share my Spotify acct and thought this would be a great way to listen to podcasts uninterrupted. I was very wrong. I sincerely hope they can fix this because it is so frustrating and annoying to be working on something and have to take the time to reopen the app, find my podcast and episode, then continue from where I left off
