Richard Wernicke in conversation with Carla Herbertson
The Music Subscription Service Deezer recently launched their Audiobooks by Deezer app in Germany with an optimized user experience for streaming audiobooks and dramas. This follows on from Deezer’s recent launch of an audiobook channel in the Netherlands suggesting that the streamer may provide audiobooks more widely across the globe. Zebralution’s Carla Herbertson talks to Head of Content Richard Wernicke about their spoken word journey and the importance of offering audiobooks to their listeners.
