Cory Doctorow is one of the good guys, the kind of person you want by your side when fighting impossible odds or monstrous entities. His stellar science-fiction career has garnered prestigious awards and a devoted fan base, but he fights the good fight here on Earth too, taking on Big-Tech monopolies and their exploitative practices.

In this interview, he shares his work with digital warriors such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, shares his insights about the current head of the Federal Trade Commission, and cheers on our efforts to win justice against Audible.

Join us for a long hard look at Audible's predations and at the corporate structures we're up against more widely.

Romance writer, Erin Wright, is "morally allergic" to exclusive publication through Amazon and its audiobook subsidiary Audible. No-one can be a truly independent author, she asserts, when tied to such an abusive partner.

Erin has walked her talk, not only pioneering the popular Facebook group, 'Wide for the Win', but finding most of her own author livelihood outside the Amazon/ Audible empire.

In this episode of the Audiblegate podcast, Erin describes Amazon's lamentable track record when dealing with authors but also offers invaluable tips for those who go 'wide' with their audiobooks, including opportunities with Kobo and Chirp.

And she finds much to laugh about with hosts Abdiel and William as they swap stories about heartbreak, Idaho's potato culture and finding Christmas cheer amid the gloom.

Get informed, get outraged, and be merry with this latest episode of the Audiblegate podcast!

Welcome to Season 2 of the Audiblegate podcast series with our new presenters, William Bahl and Abdiel LeRoy.

 

A massive tech monopoly enriching itself at suppliers' expense? We're shocked, I tell you, shocked! Well, strap yourself in. It's about to get ugly as we report from the front lines on Audible's wanton destruction of authors' and narrators' livelihoods.

 

William is an independent narrator of more than 400 titles, and Abdiel the author of some 20 books, most of which he has also narrated as audiobooks. In this first episode of the new season, Abdiel describes why he is "livid" about Audible's predatory behavior, and he trades horror stories with William about dealing with this rapacious monopoly and monopsony!

 

In 2020, Australian author Susan May began the Audiblegate movement to hold Audible accountable for authors’ and narrators’ losses due to their unfair listener “exchange” benefit. She leads a small, determined team who are fighting the biggest company in the world for justice. These Audiblegate podcasts take you behind the scenes of this international movement.

 

Join hosts WIlliam Bahl and Abdiel LeRoy, and discover the truth of this David-and-Goliath fight against corporate greed and graft.
