Audible produces a slate of world-class audio programming — from original, immersive experiences like Stinker Lets Loose! to exclusive audio-first memoirs like A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World performed by David Spade, to audio reboots of classic comedy such as Dr. Katz: the Audio Files, and much, much more.
And they’re now accepting submissions from Podcast Movement attendees for the opportunity to join the lineup!
Find out what you need to submit at their pitch program website, and get it in by end of day, July 13th. A Short List will be selected by July 20th, and participants will be invited to pitch their idea to Audible executives live at Podcast Movement on July 25th.Your idea could be selected for development, along with a $1,000 payment (full terms here apply).
And if you don’t want to submit a pitch, but want to see them live and in person, make sure to be in attendance for this session next month!

Win, lose or draw… We hope that you enjoy the World Cup, and that your team (country) does well! We also hope to see you either at Podcast Movement (which is less than one month away), or making comments and networking inside the Virtual Pass if you cannot make it to Philadelphia!
“What’s the difference between England and a Tea Bag? The tea bag stays in the cup longer.” – (Likely told by someone from USA, whose team did not make this year’s tournament).
