Audible Podcast Development Program - Your Podcast Could Be The Next One Everyone’s Talking About
And we want to help you get it heard. If your project is selected and meets our eligibility criteria, Audible will:• Award you a $10K commissioning fee to develop your idea into a fully produced podcast pilot or program
• Cover production costs
• Provide editorial and script guidance, as well as production and casting expertise
• Give you the use of our state-of-the-art production equipment and resources
• Facilitate mentorship and peer networking opportunities
• Release your podcast to millions of Audible listeners
Your StoryShare your inventive, immersive, and wholly original idea. We’re exclusively looking for podcasts with an episodic format and a narrative arc (i.e., a beginning, middle, and end…though not necessarily in that order). We’re seeking a diversity not only of genres — from scripted fiction and comedy, to drama, documentary, and investigative journalism — but of perspectives, cultures, regions, and identities. While we do enjoy conversational shows and hosted interviews, we’re currently accepting submissions for narrative podcasts only.
Your VoiceWhether you’re a debut talent with a personal story, a subject matter expert, or a seasoned producer, your unique point of view is everything. You should have a strong creative vision, a willingness to take risks, and a collaborative approach, as you’ll work closely with the Audible team to bring your creation to life. We’re especially keen on partnering with storytellers from a diverse array of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.
