Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Just GONNA cover one story today. And it's a big one the story of the Golden Mikes plus last week. I promised we touch on podcast movement. This story has it all. You may have heard about this story via twitter or if you were at podcast movement last week from inside podcasting here goes last Friday February fourteenth wonder. Ceo or non Lopez announced the formation of the podcast academy quote a new membership driven not for profit organization of Independent podcasters and industry professionals dedicated to elevating awareness and excitement podcasts. As a major media category and advancing knowledge and relationships in and around the business end quote while Lopez leading the charge the academy's founding members include Donald Albright from tender foot. Tv Eric Dane from stitcher. On Your Grun men from NPR carry Hoffman from PR X. Courtney Holt from spotify Christie Mayor Ball from Sony Music Rekkem or who is independent Lawrence bore from criminal and Elliott Tavakoli from spoke media. The podcast academy will host an award show called the Golden Mikes in two thousand twenty one note. The membership in the academy is open to individuals not companies or organizations. The reaction to this news was mixed. While some applauded the effort to create an organization that could help elevate the industry others wondered whether Lopez was aware of the similarly named Academy of podcasters which held a now defunct award ceremony for years and still index longtime podcasters into a hall of fame despite skipping a year inductions will resume soon. None of the hall of fame inductees were contacted by Lopez prior to the announcement and many expressed shock that they were learning of it on social media adding fuel to the fire. While the PODCAST Academy's current leadership includes Independent. Podcasts makers virtually all them hail from the world of Radio Not podcasting. It didn't help that. Bloomberg article announcing the award's existence described the media as having been quote born into the halls of public radio and quote. Now before I jump in with my take I encourage you to go to inside dot com slash podcasting to read the entire article that I'm quoting in it. Sky CHATS WITH ELSIE. Escobar of she podcasts. Who was a hall of fame inductee about her reaction to the PODCAST Academy News? It's a timely conversation about how the new podcast scene think. Big Money and movie and TV deals will interact with the original podcasting. Think podcasting circa two thousand five. Go check it out now. What do I think I'm excited by? Anything in the PODCASTS world. That will continue to draw attention to the medium. I think more and more people should be finding and listening to podcasts. However I echo elsie sentiments. I do wish that there was some acknowledgement of the prior similar award ceremony. The question remains where did those hall of fame inductees stand how will their awards be acknowledged by the Golden Mikes? We'll see where this all
