Nominate for the Pod Delusion 2009 Listeners’ Award

Next week, as it’s the end of the year and no one is allowed to broadcast anything unless it is a ‘special’ of some sort (see below) – so next week we’re doing what every other journalist is doing, and putting out a ‘review of the year’ show (don’t worry, it’ll be 100% new material!)- and giving out awards in different categories. And we need your help!

We want you to nominate a person/organisation/thing that should receive the Pod Delusion 2009 Listeners’ Award – someone who best sums up what the whole show is about, and has done the most to further the values and ideas associated with the show (and perhaps who does it without sounding as amazingly pretentious as that description does). So if you’ve got someone in mind, nominate by clicking HERE. The winner will be announced on the next show, that will hopefully be online on either the 27th or 28th December!
