Priceless content. Functionality could be better.

Cato provides so much great content through this app, it is unreal!
I wish the app had better search and play functions.
Auto-play features would be nice; or features to play content that is chronologically- or topic-related. Like most video streaming services do: “next episode will start in...”
It is more that worthwhile for its content!

Easy to use, excellent speakers

It’s refreshing to hear Cato speakers. Experts who are easy to understand, are not trying to intentionally mislead the audience, and base what they say on solid understanding of history and science.

Super boring

It feels like that scene in Airplane where everyone who talks to the main character kills himself to end the boredom.
