Crashes constantly on iPhone 8

Full bars and/or 60+ mbps wifi, but the audio drops out all the time. Half the time the signal is simply lost, even when I haven’t moved. All other connected apps/streaming (even video) working fine, but KPCC will stop streaming or the app will just crash all of a sudden, mutiple times per day. It’s very frustrating, especially when you are listening to a podcast or recording of a show that’s not live. All of a sudden your place is lost, or if the show was airing live and you were not caught up, then you better hope the next show hasn’t started because you probably can’t return to your place. Live has the same issue, so why not just use an actual radio and avoid the audio interruptions?
Podcast access is decent but same problem, and the app defaults to live streaming so you may lose your place even when you don’t start with the live stream. Been buggy like this since the start.

I love KPCC but this app doesn’t work!

I love KPCC and listen all day, but this app just doesn’t work. The signal constantly l fails, seemingly for no reason, although the WiFi is fine and all other apps are working on my iPhone 7. I end up defaulting back to the radio, which means I can’t use the “live stream” pause feature or access the pledge-free stream during membership drives. I will continue to support the station, but please, KPCC, fix the app!

Impossible to return to the beginning of a streaming program

If I catch Fresh Air in middle of broadcast, it’s impossible to return to the start: like a broken record it gets stuck to a random spot and refuses to backtrack further.
