What is the Academy?

The Academy is a group of podcasters, podcast industry professionals, and podcast enthusiasts who have come together to help recognize the best contributors to the podcast industry. Past years have included awards being presented, and in 2018 will exclusively feature the fourth annual Hall of Fame ceremony.

How are inductees chosen?

Once public nominations occur, every nominee will be evaluated during a selection process made up of existing Hall of Famers. The top nominees will then be announced as the 2018 Class of the Podcasters Hall of Fame.
