Not long left to vote for ‘After the Fact’

January 28, 2013 in Podcast, Quiz Show

Perhaps you haven’t heard but After the Fact, the quiz show I host on Claremorris Community Radio, was last Autumn nominated for a European Podcast Award.

The (rather long-winded) award process is about to change stages this week. On February 1st, the public voting phase ends and the category shortlists will be announced. A judging panel will then review the remaining podcasts before the winners are announced during March sometime.

So, there are just a few days left to vote for After the Fact! * If you’d like to do so, please click on this link right here: Vote for After the Fact. **

I’d like to thank the Academy…

May 30, 2012 in Quiz Show

After the Fact, the quiz show I hosted on Claremorris Community Radio last Winter (you know, the one I plugged mercilessly on this site!) can now officially be referred to as an award-winning production!

At their annual awards bash last weekend, Craol (the umbrella organisation for the community radio stations of Ireland), awarded After the Fact a merit award in the ‘Specialist Speech’ category.

In their official adjudication, the judges commended the programme, stating that “the presenters obviously have a great rapport, and the production values make for a very listenable show.”

As the host of the show, I’d like to thank everyone who took part over the 28 shows especially, of course, the two regular captains Andrew Newman and Marcella Connolly. We’d best get cracking on series 2!

If’d you like to listen back to any of the 28 award-winning episodes, feel free to check out the show page or subscribe via iTunes.
