Tribeca Audio will launch its flagship series, and Tribeca Enterprises' first podcast, July 13. Titled 'Tribeca Audio Premieres,' the series will be hosted by Davy Gardner, head of Tribeca Audio and the curator of audio storytelling at Tribeca Festival. The podcast will air every other week and feature the full first episode of a new podcast series followed by interviews with the creators, hosts, performers and musicians behind the program, as per Variety.

"As Tribeca expands its slate of year-round programming, Tribeca Audio will further extend our curatorial footprint into the world of audio storytelling, one of the fastest-growing storytelling mediums today. Through its flagship series, 'Tribeca Audio Premieres,' the network will champion the work of today's greatest audio artists while connecting their work to new and expansive audiences," Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises, said in a statement.

The first episode of 'Tribeca Audio Premieres' will spotlight 'My Mother Made Me,' with an interview from host and author, Jason Reynolds. The second episode spotlights Crooked Media and Audacy's 'Mother Country Radicals,' which was created by playwright and screenwriter Zayd Dohrn and documents his experience growing up with his mother Bernandine Dohn, who was on the FBI 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list for years, Variety reports. Further episodes will spotlight podcasts from independent creators and companies such as Campside Media, QCode, USG Audio and Atypical Artists. Each season of the podcast ends with a live episode from the Tribeca Festival.

Other than Tribeca Audio Premieres, Tribeca Audio is also developing five new series: a scripted mini-series, an audio documentary series, an experimental short microcast, and an episodic podcast featuring New York theater artists. All work created online is accompanied by a transcript for maximum accessibility. The Tribeca Festival is scheduled to end on Sunday. 'Tribeca Audio Premieres' will be available from July 13 on Tribeca Audio's Apple Podcast channel, and on all podcast apps.
