Talk radio tailored for you

Rivet Radio CEO John MacLeod prowled the floor of Telematics Detroit 2014 with an iPhone app and a pitch: What if your phone could search for news and talk radio topics you like the same way Pandora seeks music you’ll enjoy?

Rivet Radio — the name comes from the idea that the content will be riveting — lets you build a list of topics, podcasts, sources and more. The app searches an array of radio reports and podcasts for the specific segments you’ll like, the same way Pandora finds the one song that sets your toes to tapping on an album of losers.

A car app under development was on display at the conference.

MacLeod currently gets content from a small staff, an agreement with WBEZ public radio in Chicago and a few podcasts, including One Song Per Day, which caught my interest with “It Was Like That When We Got Here,” a catchy new tune by Camper Van Beethoven.

Rivet Radio will need a deep inventory of material from many sources to reach its potential. MacLeod hopes to build a roster of hundreds of contributors for the service. Rivet offers either an advertising-supported stream or ad-free content for paying subscribers.
