In this episode of Skills in Screencasts and Podcasts, we deliver a repurposed interview as an audio episode. Our interview is with Gary Leland (current publisher of Podertainment Magazine), in which we discuss the announcement of the Academy of Podcasters Awards and the Hall of Fame.
For Screencasters, there has been some dialogue with key pundits for this space about a separate Awards ceremony and a possible Hall of Fame, as well. Perhaps there are some lessons learned from the initiation of this Program that can be helpful for them, as well.
What follow is the repurposing of the episode originally published at the Podcast Reporter podcast show.
In this episode, we interview Gary Leland, who describes the information and details about the newly-announced program called The Academy of Podcaster Awards and the Hall of Fame.
This program will hold its first recognition event of these awards and the inductees of the Hall of Fame on the first day of the Podcast Movement Conference on 31 July 2015 at Fort Worth, Texas at the Omni Hotel.
As you will hear in this episode, Gary discusses how the program came about and the objectives of the awards, as well as the information about the Board, the Academy members and the eligibility for the awards and the Hall of Fame recognition.
Since this is the first year of this program, there will be room to grow and improve in the coming years.
Our thanks to Gary Leland for making a vision of these types of merited awards come true since his idea back in 2006.
