I’m excited to announce that Skeptoid has made it to the final round of the annual Podcast Awards for 2010! The real voting starts now.
As you may know, Skeptoid has been my labor of love for over three years. Unlike most other nominated podcasts, I do it almost entirely on my own: I have no co-hosts, producers, company, or sponsors behind me, like most. So I make my pitch that (if you like Skeptoid) it deserves your vote through all my hard work, even if there are other shows also nominated that you also like.
You may note that there are several of your favorite skeptical podcasts nominated in various categories, including the excellent SGU from our fellow SkepticBlogger Steven Novella. I encourage you to vote carefully: If skeptics split our votes, we may have a Ross Perot effect and some totally random podcast will beat us all. So I’m asking you to choose Skeptoid in the Education category, which is the category in which it has a plausible chance to win.
To vote, go to http://www.podcastawards.com/, and vote for Skeptoid in the Peoples Choice category (they misspelled it, but don’t be thrown off), and also the Education category. Then fill in your name and submit the form.
Heads up that there are two annoying things about the voting process. First, you have to enter your email in a form (don’t worry, no spam) and click a link in your email to confirm your vote. Second, you can vote once per day through November 30. While you don’t have to, other podcast listeners will, so your vote diminishes if you don’t also.
So please vote for me, and please set yourself an alarm to do it every day through the rest of the month. Show that you appreciate a good podcast, and that you like to see it recognized. Thanks!
