Description: Did you know that audio theater can be interactive? Now that voice input is available across Alexa and Google Assistant devices, a new form of interactive audio theater enables listeners to play a role in the story, using their voice. You’ll hear from the earliest contributors to this new medium, whose work with the interactive audio production company Earplay led to groundbreaking experiences like “Mr. Robot: Daily Five Nine,” “Jurassic World Revealed,” “Pugmire,” and “The Orpheus Device.” Learn how interactive audio theater started with inspiration from theater, traditional audio theater, interactive fiction, and role playing games.
