Tom Ballard to host new book review podcast for Audible

Tuesday 06 August, 2019

Audible has partnered with comedian Tom Ballard to host a new podcast, What’s the Story?

Audible.com.au, the Australian arm of the world’s leading provider and producer of audiobooks and spoken word entertainment, has updated its membership inclusions, giving listeners more choice and more monthly listens, and has developed the podcast to help users choose the books they want to listen to.
 
Audible members will now get a bonus audiobook each month called the Editors’ Extra, as well as getting access to hundreds of hours of audio entertainment with unlimited access to Audible Original Podcasts.
 
Audible.com.au Country Manager, Leanne Cartwright-Bradford, says, “Our members are voracious listeners, who told us they want more from their membership. We listened and are proud to introduce hundreds of hours of premium quality audio entertainment each month, at no extra cost. Whether at home with the kids, commuting, or relaxing before bed, Audible is an incredible way to experience spoken word entertainment.”
 
To bring these new membership inclusions to life, Audible has partnered with comedian Tom Ballard to host a new podcast, What’s the Story? and he says “I’ve been listening to stuff and having opinions ever since I was a little boy and now it’s finally paying off. What’s the Story? is like a book club for your ears: a space where we can chat and argue and laugh and cry about a whole range of great audiobooks. There’s a lot to listen to out there and we’ve lined up some brilliant titles and guests for this series, so I’m excited to jump in.
 
Joined by a revolving panel of fellow audiobook-worms, experts and comedians, Tom will discuss the latest Editors’ Extra each month on the podcast, with audiobook-lovers joining the conversation via a dedicated Facebook Group.
 
On 20 August, hear satirist Dan Ilic and true-crime expert Meshel Laurie join Tom Ballard to discuss Audible’s first Editors’ Extra, The Dry, by Australian author Jane Harper.
 
Jane Harper says, “I’m so pleased The Dry was selected to kick start Audible’s Editors’ Extra initiative. I hope the Editors’ Extra will serve as a respected platform for listeners to discover new genres, narrators and audio formats that they might not otherwise have experienced.”
