Penguin Random House Audio will launch the Ahab Talent tool publicly in Spring 2020. This powerful casting database, bringing together actors and content creators, has been a critical internal tool for audiobook producers at Penguin Random House and will now be available to outside publishers and creators for the first time. Ahab Talent has recruited thousands of actors to create a profile and upload audio demos, resume, special skills and more to make it easy for publishers, producers, and content creators to search and sort to find exactly the right voice for their audiobook, voiceover, or podcast project. Publishers and producers can request auditions and communicate with talent directly within the tool, making it a one-stop audio casting destination. Penguin Random House Audio's SVP of Content Production and creator of Ahab, Dan Zitt, will demo the tool and give casting tips gleaned from more than 20 years in the audiobook industry.
