Audible, long known only for audiobooks, is branching out into podcasts - and news - NiemanLab

On Panzer's trip in the Catosphere today, he visited, NiemanLab, a site he's never been to before. It didn't take any digging at all to find a post about the audio book marketing site Audible.

I want answers.
A post there by Shan Wang says Amazon's audio book arm Audible has added a section called "Channels." It contains selected news podcasts and other features. There are podcasts of material from The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. It's currently available on both iOS and Android. Right now it's only available to Audible "Beta Tester" members. After beta testing, it will be available to Audible members.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... This inquiring kitty wants to know: Is Audible going to try to go against iTunes? Or will they only feature their own produced podcasts?"

Note: This is a h-u-g-e post. You'll need a thermos of tea and two muffins.
