Organised by Cast Away, the ten judged categories showcased the diverse range of quality podcasts in Australia, the eleventh category was the “Peoples Choice Award” decided by popular vote.
Podcaster and Marketing speaker Tim Reid did a great job of emceeing the night and keeping the speeches short (sorry you had to be there).
