Audible — the Internet provider of premium spoken audio services for content download or playback on personal computers — and Mac Publishing, the company behind Macworld Magazine and the MacCentral and Macworld Web sites — have entered into an agreement to deliver exclusive audio programming to Mac users and customers of the Audible service.
Macworld magazine, Macworld.com, and MacCentral will promote and co-market Audible.com’s audio service. In return, Audible will promote Macworld magazine and audio programming to their respective customer bases.

What’s more, look for the companies to soon launch an exclusive weekly audio program from the editors of Mac Publishing’s leading publications and Web sites. The programming will be available free to regular subscribers to audible.com’s monthly membership program.
AudibleListener is available for sale to any Mac user via audible.com’s 34,000-hour library of spoken word programming. Mac Publishing will promote AudibleListener to Macworld magazine subscribers and visitors to Macworld.com and MacCentral.
New audible.com subscribers who use Apple’s iPod digital music player or iTunes desktop digital music software will receive a free six-month subscription to Macworld magazine or a six-month extension to a current subscription, as well as free Audible programs from RobinWilliams@audible.com, Neal Stephenson’s “Snow Crash” and free blank CD-Rs.
