Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 128, originally published in December 2013.
Donald Katz is the founder & CEO of Audible. He successfully built the world’s largest seller and publisher of audiobooks. He joins the show to discuss how he built his company. Audible isn’t just a successful company. It also impacts local communities. Katz believes companies should do more social work to revitalize its surroundings. He thinks “do-good” helps businesses and their goodwill assets.
Amazon recently announced that it has launched some upgrades to its Whispersync for Voice technology to make it easier for people reading Kindle books to switch between reading and listening to the Audible audiobook version on a smartphone or tablet. Katz explains this new feature.
Audible just launched a creative partnership with Playtone, the celebrated television, film and music production company founded by Academy Award-winning actor-director Tom Hanks. Katz tells us more about this partnership.
