Pinna, providers of an on-demand audio entertainment service developed and curated exclusively for children, has launched a voice-activated interactive podcast format in a series called Yes No Audio.

Pinna's voice-enabled interactive podcast format creates an immersive experience for kids with a new way to engage with Pinna's storytelling. Kids will be able to actively participate in determining the outcomes of these podcast story-based adventures. In each Yes No Audio time-based adventure, listeners will be prompted to verbally answer yes or no to decide on their escape plans as they work against the clock. There are multiple ways to escape, allowing kids to keep trying new or faster escape routes to beat the clock.

Pinna's first three titles to feature this new technology are Escape the Haunted House, Escape the Sinking Ship, and Escape the Marshmallow Dream Forest.

"At Pinna we're always looking for ways to innovate in the podcast space and actively engage kid listeners," said Maggie McGuire, CEO of Pinna, in a statement. "We've married high-stakes storytelling with voice-led game play in this new series of participatory podcasts that spark kids' imaginations, tap their problem-solving skills, and put them in the driver's seat in each unique adventure. We're taking podcasts to a whole new level of interactivity and continuing to deliver on our promise of screen-free fun the whole family can enjoy together. The Yes No Audio series is a game-changer in the podcast space, and we're excited to be leading the way."

Pinna delivers ad-free, audio on-demand streaming service with original audio programming that includes podcasts, audiobooks, and music. Pinna is available to stream on all iOS and Android devices and desktop web browsers.
