The company enables anyone to become a broadcaster easily and quickly and has just had a great month after winning Microsoft’s BizSpark startup competition and closing a deal with Clear Channel for an integration with iHeartRadio. We chat about these news but also about the product’s evolution, plans for Android and much more.
