Audible Inc. Releases Ponzi Supernova

Audible Inc. announced the release of Ponzi Supernova, an original series that offers fresh insight into Bernie Madoff’s $65 billion Ponzi Scheme—directly from Madoff himself. Hosted by distinguished journalist Steve Fishman, the series features never-before-heard recordings of Madoff as well as dozens of new interviews with FBI and SEC agents, attorneys, traders, financial investors, and victims of Madoff’s devastating Ponzi scheme. The first four episodes of this six-part series are now available within the Audible Channels experience. For years, Fishman’s tough-minded and persistent reporting on Madoff has been instrumental in exposing the magnitude of the Ponzi scheme, and the story of the larger, frequently overlooked financial system that enabled Madoff to manipulate and dupe tens of thousands of victims including his closest friends. In Ponzi Supernova, Fishman takes his investigative reporting to new heights, providing captivating depth and detail in chronicling a crime that continues to shock anew. The final two episodes of the series, which will release at the end of January, take listeners beyond the scheme’s operation and collapse, detailing clawback efforts, and investigating how victims are receiving remuneration, sometimes from other victims. Ponzi Supernova puts the still-evolving nightmare into a larger, current context, and demonstrates how the scheme’s far-flung impact continues to reverberate so many years later.

Audible, Inc. Releases ‘Clips’ Functionality

Audible, Inc. announced the release of ‘Clips,’ a functionality that allows listeners to save favorite short passages and excerpts from Audible audiobooks they’ve downloaded for later listening, and also enables the sharing of these passages using iOS and Windows, and will soon be enabled on Android. With ‘Clips,’ customers can start conversations with friends about the audiobooks they are listening to; listeners can also now go back to specific locations in an audiobook or dramatic moments in a specific performance that spoke to them. Listeners also love talking about books, authors, and narrators they are passionate about, and ‘Clips’ makes it easier for customers to start meaningful conversations with their friends and family directly from their audiobook whenever inspiration strikes!. Before ‘Clips,’ literary quotes could only be shared from ebooks or transcribed from print books. For the first time audiobook listeners will be able to share pieces of audio content with their social network. Clips can be shared across multiple destinations including Facebook, Twitter, SMS, e-mail, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and more.
