Nominate Theatre Geeks for the 9th Annual Podcast Awards! (Please)

It’s Podcast Awards Time Again
and Theatre Geeks needs your nomination!

AwardsLogoIt’s time again for the Podcast Awards, and we’d love it if you’d nominate Theatre Geeks in the Cultural/Arts category.  If we get enough nominations to end up on the final ballot, it means we can get exposed to literally hundreds of thousands of people voting. This is a case where being nominated is almost more valuable than winning.
Nominations are open from October 1st through 15th, so please don’t put it off.  The nominating form is here.
If you listen to other podcasts in other categories and wish to nominate them as well, have the information for them ready, because you can only submit the nominating form ONCE.

Podcast Awards Nominating CommitteeNominate us in the Cultural/Arts category ONLY.

The picture at right shows the Cultural/Arts category filled out for Theatre Geeks.  Use the name of the podcast plus our URL.   DON’T nominate us in any other category UNLESS it’s “Peoples’ Choice.” That’s the limit.  If you nominate us in more than one program category, your entire nomination form will be disqualified, so don’t waste your nominations. The nominating instructions are pretty clear at http://podcastawards.com, so you shouldn’t have any trouble.  After you submit your nomination, you may get a verification e-mail — please respond to this.  Not everyone will get this, but some will.

Last year, you all put us over the top and we made the ballot — please help us again this year.  It only takes a few minutes and we’ll love you forever.  Seriously.  We mean it.

Nominations close at Midnight EST on October 15.  Shortly after that, we’ll have information on voting if Theatre Geeks makes the ballot.

Want suggestions for shows to nominate in other categories?  Here are some of Dave’s favorites.  Give them a listent and help them out, will you?

Business Category

Beyond the T0-D0 List (Erik J. Fisher’s outstanding podcast about working better and more productively.)
http://beyondthetodolist.com/

Technology Category 

Podcast Answer Man 
http://www.podcastanswerman.com

OR:

The Audacity to Podcast
http://theaudacitytopodcast.com/

Both of these are about the field of podcasting itself.  Without what Dave learned from these guys, there would probably be no Theatre Geeks podcast.  Seriously.  You can only nominate one of them, but either one of them deserves it.

 

Politics/News Category

No Agenda
http://www.noagenda.com

John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry (one of the inventors of podcasting — known as “The Podfather”) do this twice weekly show which they sometimes call “the best podcast in the universe.”  It’s fun, funny, irreverent, political (all stripes, but decidedly libertarian) and pretty much adult.

 

Comedy Category

The Ramen Noodle (clean comedy by Daniel J. Lewis)
http://cleancomedypodcast.com/

or

The Adam Carolla Show (not so clean, but very funny and if you like Adam Carolla, it’s perfect).
http://adamcarolla.com/


Best Video Podcast

This Week In Google (Technology talk with Leo Laporte, Gina Trapani and Jeff Jarvis — Smart people talking about Google and the Internet in general.)
http://twit.tv/twig

Leo is the king of tech podcasting, Gina Trapani is a brilliant developer and commentator on all things Google, and Jeff Jarvis is a professor of journalism at CUNY, with a unique, fascinating perspective on tech issues.

 

Science Category

Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe
http://www.theskepticsguide.org/

Consistently the best science podcast on the internet.

Thanks for your help, and please keep listening to Theatre Geeks.
