Sesame Workshop and Audible Team Up Again to Launch New Sesame Street Podcast for Families
Ready, Set, Ride with Elmo Debuts Today, Exclusively on Audible
(New York, New York – January 18, 2024) – Sesame Workshop, the global impact nonprofit behind Sesame Street, and Audible, Inc., the leading creator and provider of premium audio storytelling, are collaborating once again with the release of the new Sesame Street podcast Ready, Set, Ride with Elmo.
Ready, Set, Ride with Elmo is the perfect on-the-go podcast for the whole family. Join Elmo and his Sesame Street friends as they imagine themselves different everyday scenarios but with a twist, and always in a super silly, over-the-top car. In every episode, Elmo picks up a friend on Sesame Street in his Elmobile! Once they buckle in, the Elmobile can transform into anything – a race car, a helicopter, a giant skateboard, even a banana peel with wheels – before whisking them off on a fantastic, themed adventure.
“If you think you know trains, planes, and automobiles, get ready to explore them in a brand-new way with your favorite Sesame Street friends in Ready, Set, Ride with Elmo,” said Jennifer Ahearn, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships & Themed Entertainment, Sesame Workshop. “We’re excited to debut our latest collaboration with Audible. No doubt, this podcast series will spark the imaginations of children and families as they strap in for a wondrous, laughter-filled escapade.“
Imaginations run free as Elmo and his Elmobile help his Sesame Street friends Abby, Grover, Oscar and more. Available exclusively from Audible, each episode will be approximately 10 minutes long, with a total of 8 episodes. Get READY, get SET, and let’s RIDE with Elmo and the Elmobile! The fun is never ending!
Sesame Workshop first teamed up with Audible in 2020 for The Sesame Street Podcast with Foley & Friends. The show was renewed for a Season 2 and Season 3. Hosted by new monster on the block Foley, alongside sidekick Mikee the Microphone, each 15-minute episode centers on a different topic that you and your preschooler will enjoy together: such as the alphabet, birthdays, and vehicles. Recurring features include “Elmo’s Joke of the Day,” original songs, and music previously featured on Sesame Street, such as “The Letter of the Day.” Original music, interactive games, jokes, and visits from friends are in every episode.
