Vote for VOK in the Podcast Awards


Hi everyone,
It is the annual Podcast Awards, nominations begin on Friday, 15th April.

Podcast Awards

If you go to the above link, and you will be able to submit a form (from 15th April) of your favourite podcasts, in a number of categories like Gaming, Movies, Politics, Religion, etc.

So we would appreciate if you nominate Vassals of Kingsgrave for Best ‘TV and Film’ Podcast; A Podcast of Ice and Fire for People’s Choice Podcast, and Best ‘Entertainment’ Podcast.

Although, if you don’t want to vote for either podcast, it is still a good opportunity to nominate the podcasts you love in their respective category.

There is a major shakeup which might help both podcasts: they have brought in a rule that podcasts that have won awards, in 2015, will be ineligible, or podcast that have won 5 awards in the past will be ineligible (so Internet Box that VOK lost to last year, in Best General Podcast, has won three times), that may help APOIAF too, as a number of podcasts have won possibly 5 or more awards in the past 10 years (ESPN Fantasy Focus, Rob has a Podcast, Mugglecast, This American Life).

Thanks once again for everyone that takes the time to listen to the podcasts, through iTunes, or through YouTube.

Hi Gang,

As you know we at VoK use archive.org to host and distribute our podcast. Its one of the main reasons we curators have been able to run VoK for free, and don’t have to ask for donations or look for sponsors.

Archive.org hosts other good podcasts like APOIAF and content from independent news sites like Democracy Now!. They also do the fun “Wayback Machine”, which crawls the web and saves sites, like do you miss the look and feel of Martin’s old site? , then check out this.

Archive.org is a non profit and is run thru donations from patrons. So if you can, please give generously to Archive.org

Thanks

Vikram aka Fortytwo
