“We are once again excited to bring attention to the ever growing podcasting industry we have here in Canada with the fourth installment of the Canadian Podcast Awards,” said John Leschinski, chair of Podcamp Toronto. “We love having the opportunity to focus on amplifying Canadian voices and their unique artistry within a community of their peers.”
In 2020, 116 podcasts were nominated for awards. Winners included The Gravy Train, Dark Poutine, Diabetes Canada Podcast and On a Dark Cold Night.
“Being recognized for a Canadian Podcast Award comes with a sense of pride that your peers, the community you lookup to, feel that you deserve to be here for the work you do,” said Lauren Marinigh of Somebody Date Us, winner of Best Adult Podcast, 2020.
