Planet Maynard wins the Cast Away Australian Podcast Award on Saturday night for Comedy & Entertainment, surprising his parents, his neighbour and his agent.
Saturday night the “who’s who” of “who’s that?” in the Australian podcasting scene turned out for the inaugural Cast Away Australian Podcast Awards, after welcoming a large group of podcasters on the mini red carpet Maynard thanked the holy trinity in his acceptance speech, Adam Curry, Tim Ferguson & John C Dvorak (the Holy Ghost).
Maynard’s acceptance speech went something like this:
I never thought I’d be accepting an award from an ABC employee.
ABC management told me my podcasts were “over produced and self indulgent”. Have you heard the 702 Drive show?
I’d like to thank the Holy Trinity; Adam Curry, Tim Ferguson and the Holy Ghost, John C Dvorak.
The Ginni Show and We Facted Up are both really good shows which makes this award even more surprising.
Thanks also to The Skeptic Zone, What Double J Should Sound Like, my Patreon supporters & Byson & Hume for keeping Planet Maynard’s lights on.
We all know why we podcast. Bicurious males and chicks dig podcasters.
My advice for podcasters everywhere? Two things, never throw away your archives, ever. And always try to enter an Awards show the first year it’s held.
