Nominations out for British Podcast Awards

The nominees of the first ever British Podcast Awards are out, with the BBC, Quidem, Somethin Else and David Lloyd shortlisted for Best Radio Podcast.

For the rest of the awards, established media organisations such as the BBC, Guardian and Economist are being recognised alongside new groups like the Distraction Pieces Network and Radio Wolfgang, alongside a large number of independent creators.

Matt Hill, co-founder of the awards said, “A huge thank you must go out to our judges who sifted through over 400 entries – and hundreds of hours of listening – to create such a diverse list of podcasts”.

The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony at Central St. Martin’s Platform Theatre on Saturday 29th April.

Matt Deegan, co-founder of the awards adds: “As well as the individual category awards, one podcast will also be crowned the audioBoom Podcast of the Year and we will also reveal the winner of the Listener’s Choice Award, with voting still open at”.
