With each passing year we hear more and more stories about how audio is booming; how more of us are tuning in to listen to the next hit comedy show, podcast or book; how even the way we listen is beginning to evolve with new devices and new formats to explore. And audio is changing at Audible too – we still continue to make exceptional audiobooks and award-winning dramas, but we’ve now expanded our offering to include podcasts, documentaries, comedy specials and original fiction.
