hi there and welcome to verbal voices. I'm Paul Lemley, head of partnerships at Verbal. We're in early stage startup building audio and podcasting technology for creators. Just like you. As of this recording, we're working to launch our beta platform, and we can't wait to introduce it to you. This experimental podcast is a way for us to connect with audio creators of all stripes from traditional interview podcast hosts short and long form storytellers, business leaders using audio to engage their customers, poets, speakers, battle rappers, stand up comics, audio book authors, teachers And in this episode of podcast network founder, our new platform will cater to them all. And it's my responsibility to dive deep with them on their creative efforts. I want to find out how they've mastered their craft, what challenges they faced and overcome what tools they use to grow their audience. And, of course, what they're excited about most within this fast growing world of audio. On this episode, we have Sean Howard, co founder of Fable and Folly, an award winning audio fiction podcast network with a combination of marketing, advertising and audio production experience. Sean and his co founder, Eli Run the fastest growing audio fiction network with genres across sci fi, fantasy, speculative fiction, thriller and historical drama. One of their flagship shows, titled Albus Alex, follows Alba Far, Loria's royal physician as head witch and the only regular staff member at the new House of Healing. Alba has an endless line up of patience and a bickering king and queen to please. Fortunately, help is on the way. Unfortunately, that help is from Magnus, a troublesome young ex monk and aspiring surgeon, and Holly, an accident prone fairy herbalist. While you listen, be sure to take note of the ideas, tips, tools, processes, challenges and the types of winds that help audio creators build a highly engaged audience. So you're ready to learn more. Let's jump right in. Sean, how are you doing today? I'm doing great, thank you. Surviving covid. I imagine. I'm sure it's It might be difficult as a as a network co founder trying to grow. What are some challenges you're facing just in the covid context? Um, well, first of all, I think podcasting sort of state level is everything we saw in during Covid, and it's been increasing. Um, audio fiction is also one of the areas. I think that has had the biggest lift during Covid. From what I've seen, um, I think there's now a growing the stuff on seeing shows that there's more people looking for information. But there's also people that are tired of hearing about covid. Audio fiction is like a nice way to, um, still keep consuming what you're used to consuming, like during chores or whatever. But not having hearing about covid. Um, because I'm done. I don't want to hear any more about it, right? I don't Yeah, the host is I'm like, Yeah, absolutely. Well, I don't want to. Definitely don't want to dwell on Covid either. So I just wanted to see what? What? Your context was coming into the conversation today and also, you know, growing your network. How did you actually
