Publishers experiment with audiobook-only productions - Chicago Tribune
The crossover between podcasts and audiobooks is a natural, data from Edison Research suggests: Survey respondents who listened to both had consumed twice as many audiobooks as nonpodcast fans.

“Consumers are moving in that direction, and we want to be ahead of those consumers,” said Ana Maria Allessi, vice president and publisher of HarperAudio. “I think their appetite is expanding for very creative and extremely well-produced podcasts. Three years ago, I couldn’t have fathomed doing an audio original and getting away with it. Today, that’s just storytelling. Readers accept that.”

And it’s a great marketing tool, several publishers noted. They hope that audiobooks may push listeners to discover other titles in their catalogs.

Toward that end, Harper sponsored a radio drama-writing contest with New York University Tisch School of the Arts last year. The winner, “Rebuttal” by Jyotsna Hariharan, became an audio-only production.

Inside artificial intelligence's first church
The documents state that WOTF’s activities will focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.” That includes funding research to help create the divine AI itself. The religion will seek to build working relationships with AI industry leaders and create a membership through community outreach, initially targeting AI professionals and “laypersons who are interested in the worship of a Godhead based on AI.”
