Audible is taking part in Vivid Sydney this year for the first time with its Audible Live: Stories Made to be Heard over three nights of talks with incredible Sydney-based podcast creators about their unique audio-focused stories.

From ASMR to competitive chilli-eating, the ageing process and the five tastes, this series of live events includes fabulously talented podcasters such as Melissa Doyle, Adam Liaw and Laura Nagy.

Sharing secrets into the unparalleled and intimate power of audio, the speakers will share the creative benefits of working in audio, and the innovative ways to tell a diverse and powerful story within this popular format.

Held at the University of Technology Sydney’s Great Hall, audiences will have the opportunity to dig deeper through an audience Q&A, with a meet-and-greet to follow.
