9 May 2022, 05:30 (PDT) WONDERY ANNOUNCES COLLABORATION WITH DOLBY TO BRING IMMERSIVE SOUND TO PODCAST FANS IN DOLBY ATMOS

Wondery will be the first podcast streaming service in the United States to deliver podcasts in Dolby Atmos

Today, premium podcast studio Wondery, an Amazon company, announced that that it will release several of its award-winning podcast series in Dolby Atmos, an immersive audio experience that gives podcast listeners the opportunity to feel and connect with their shows in an even deeper way. Wondery will be the first podcast streaming service in the United States to deliver podcasts in Dolby Atmos. This new offering will be available now/starting today exclusively on the subscription service Wondery in the Wondery app in over 28 countries worldwide.

With Dolby Atmos immersive audio, podcast creators can now place sounds in a multidimensional space that creates an experience so rich and lifelike, it transports listeners into the story. Whether you are enjoying these audio stories in your living room or over headphones, Dolby Atmos offers a new spatial sound experience that is so engaging, it'll keep you coming back for more.

Wondery titles now available in Dolby Atmos:

* Blood Ties: This award-winning scripted audio drama returns for its third season, Strange Days, with another timely story filled with twists and turns and crossed ethical lines. The story picks up with Eleonore Richland (played by Gillian Jacobs) five years later. With the help of her half-brother Santino (Christian Navarro), they uncover disturbing revelations about a new business they have just acquired that uses psychedelics to cure PTSD and Addiction. All three seasons are now available to binge in Dolby Atmos.

* Jacked: Rise of the New Jack Sound: Ambie-winner for Best Sound Design, and hosted by Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Taraji P. Henson, this series is about the moment when R&B and hip-hop first collided in the late 80s. Featuring classic tracks from the era like My Prerogative and Groove Me, the Dolby Atmos mix by Oscar-winning sound mixer Chris Jenkins takes the series to new heights. Jenkins is an Oscar-winning sound mixer known for his work on blockbusters like Mad Max: Fury Road and Justice League, and for remixing Beatles albums in Dolby Atmos. Produced in collaboration with Universal Music Group.

* Iowa Chapman and The Last Dog: Wondery partnered with Gen-Z Media to expand kids and family content and now has new shows for the whole family including Iowa Chapman and The Last Dog. The Last Dog is a thrilling and heartfelt audio adventure with the love story between a girl and a dog at its apocalyptic center. Together they set off on a journey to a legendary island where some believe animals might still be living.

Additionally, Wondery will launch key upcoming mini-series and hit weekly podcast series Against the Odds in Dolby Atmos in the coming months.

The audio landscape is evolving quickly, and listeners are growing more accustomed to podcasts that push the limits of how stories are told , said Marshall Lewy, Chief Content Officer of Wondery. Shows like Blood Ties and Jacked give us the opportunity to leverage Dolby Atmos to showcase the incredible sound design and innovate for our listeners.

Dolby Atmos elevates audio storytelling by immersing listeners into the story for a better listening experience, said John Couling, Senior Vice President, Entertainment, Dolby. We are excited to help transform Wondery content and the podcast industry with the inclusion of Dolby Atmos.
