Hi Steve, 
It's interesting for us here that you are getting lots of downloads from Pakistan. Would you have any details on it? like specific programs etc?
On the issue of censoring audio stream I think if its only available on a certain website that makes it easier to censor and block but if the stream is available on multiple apps like audials, tunein radio etc it become more difficult.

Subject: [liberationtech] Does audio/radio get through censorship firewalls	better?

I've started a little side project called
It is an Android radio news app with 100 English-language radio news and talk stations from all over the world.
Based on a request to add VOA headlines in the previous version and the fact the during spurtsif advertising I get lots of downloads from places like Pakistan, I've been thinking about whether audio streams might be a good way to get through various firewall/censorship schemes.
