Introducing The World’s First AI Powered Platform For Live Audio Discovery

nēdl, as in 'the needle in the haystack,' puts 55M+ podcasts, 100,000+ live streaming radio stations from the U.S. and around the globe as well as over 40M+ live streaming songs together on one listening and search platform to hear live audio as it's being spoken or sung -- by keyword!

nēdl is a unique way to discover new playlists made by humans – not algorithms – in different pockets of the world as well as finding additional vetted local and national news sources.  

Founded by the original iheartradio app creator, Ayinde Alakoye, to democratize discovery by transcribing words from live radio and User Generated Content streams in real-time and making them searchable. nēdl holds a global patent on live transcription for the purpose of real-time discovery and listening.  nēdl Audience launches today, a creator app will follow closely behind giving Journalists, Celebrities, and Influencers the ability to index themselves next to live broadcasts from CNN, NPR, ESPN and other third party publishers that users can find on nēdl. 

The startup was one of just 11-others chosen for Google’s inaugural Voice AI Accelerator in May of 2021 and is also backed by Sweet Capital (the King Family Office and creators of Candy Crush Saga). Ayinde Alakoye, Founder and CEO of nēdl says, “You’ve never seen anything like what we’re about to show you when it comes to real-time search of live spoken audio.”
