Online PR News – 21-November-2019 – Austin, TX – AUSTIN, TX November 21, 2019 -- Discover Pods -- the leading podcast blog -- announces the winners of the 2019 Discover Pods Awards recognizing the best podcasts of the year.
In the third annual Discover Pods Awards, over 20,000 fans voted to ultimately determine the best podcasts in a myriad of categories, awarding 19 podcasts with recognition. Unlike other podcast awards, the Discover Pods Awards aren't led by an inherent bias to any specific network and there's no pay-for-play ulterior motive. Instead, they're led by fans voting for their favorite podcasts.
Taking home the top honors are 99% Invisible for Best Overall Podcast, Dolly Parton's America for Best New Podcast, and Ear Hustle for Most Innovative Podcast.
Discover Pods founder, Kevin Goldberg, says "we're happy to award such deserving podcasts, pushing the medium to produce better quality, more creative, and highly entertaining and informative podcasts."
These awards are specifically intended to recognize the most diverse set of recipients as possible. Goldberg adds, "we strive to showcase the best podcasts of the year while also shining a light a diverse group of podcasts, creators, and genres."
