Hi. Just a thought, it'd be nice if we could save our own playlists as listeners. I see that I don't have to listen to 1hr:20min straight through once I noticed the pop-up playlist. It's cool that you've compiled the most popular shows, but it would be nice if we could save/queue up shows we see on your front page (or anywhere else on the site) and wish to listen to later.

The Discover app is nice and everything, but I can't rely on it (be it wi-fi connection, my phone's memory storage, etc.) - it's not for me. It would be nice, however, if we had the option to simply make our own playlist on

just a thought.
