PodcastOne’s ‘The Next Billion Seconds’ wins Australian Podcast Award
PodcastOne-produced podcast The Next Billion Seconds has taken out the Australian Podcast Awards’ Technology and Science Category.
The awards took place last Saturday May 5 at the Melbourne Spiegeltent, with PodcastOne and host Mark Pesce winning for their innovative podcast.
The premise of the pod revolves around the idea that that the next one billion seconds are the most important in human history as technology transforms the way we live and work.
Leading futurist, author, entrepreneur and innovator Pesce speaks with the brightest minds creating the future, and delves into self-driving cars, personal data, robots, crypto currency and more.
“I would like to congratulate all the winners on Saturday night and in particular Mark Pesce from the PodcastOne Network,” said SCA head of podcasting Grant Tothill.
“Being able to create an award winning podcast platform in less than year is about focusing on producing original long-form narrative audio-on demand content that our listeners can truly engage with.”
“Podcasting in Australia is really coming of age in Australia and these awards are to develop the industry and give this dynamic medium greater attention amongst listeners and the media/entertainment industry more widely.”
15 categories were awarded on Saturday, including host of the year, popular vote, news and current affairs.
The Australian Podcasting Awards recognise the great being done by Australian podcasters, with categories reflecting the type of content being produced in Australia and to celebrate the industry that is creating it.
The Next Billion Seconds is available via the PodcastOne app and website.
