“Australians are voracious listeners and with the Plus Catalogue, we are giving our members the opportunity to listen to even more unique, high-quality content,” says Leanne Cartwright-Bradford, Head of Operations for APAC.

“We are thrilled by the continued rise in Audible’s popularity within Australia and New Zealand.

“It is clear that our members are enjoying our ever-growing raft of local and global content and we are committed to cementing our position as the home of premium spoken word entertainment.”

Vice President of Content for APAC, Karen Appathurai Wiggins said: “Our members tell us that compelling and uniquely Australian and New Zealand stories that reflect their backgrounds and interests are an essential part of what makes an Audible membership appealing.

“It’s why we’ve produced 69 local Audible Originals to date and that number will continue to grow. The positive reception so far has been incredible to see, and we are really excited for everyone to hear what we have in store for the rest of the year.
