Amazon Prime members: your subscription includes a new perk. Members can now enjoy unlimited free access to the new short-form digital audio service Audible Channels, and a “rotating selection of more than 50 audiobooks from Audible’s catalog.”

Channels, announced last month, is basically a podcasting network of sorts, featuring a “selection of original programs, distinctive comedy, lectures, and audio editions of standout articles and news from The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Foreign Affairs, Charlie Rose, McSweeney’s, The Onion,” and more, according to an announcement.

The lineup of programming includes: Presidents are People Too!, a series that “transforms U.S. Presidents into real-life people;” Bedtime Stories for Cynics, which features “inappropriate children’s stories for adults” presented by Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation; and Limelight, highlighting the new standup performances from comedy clubs across the country.

Meanwhile, the selection of Audible audiobooks available to Prime members currently includes Mary Kubica’s The Good Girl, Karl Marlantes’ What It Is Like to Go to War, Matthew Quick’s The Silver Linings Playbook, Anne Lamott’s Stitches, and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game Alive.

Audible members also get Channels as part of their subscription. For everyone else, Channels is available for $4.95 a month.

Meanwhile, your $99 yearly or $10.00 monthly Prime membership also includes two-day shipping on orders plus a number of other perks like unlimited access to Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Photos, and early access to Amazon’s Lightning Deals. New members can get a free 30-day trail of Prime.
