The SKITTLES Pride Audible collection is free to stream from now until July 31 and can be found at SKITTLES.com/pride. The SKITTLES Pride collection was put together by multiple teams atAudible including Editorial, Marketing, and Content. There are several categories of programming. The five artists who designed this year's SKITTLES Pride packs were part of the June 5 Listens. Sorry Charlie Miller and The Inheritance are two of the free titles in the collection.
