In just one minute, this insightful episode captures the complicated dynamic between fandoms and their shows.
EP21-Gingerbread by ThatbeardedSwede:
This lovely, mouth watering episode by ThatBeardedSwede hit all of our senses, and left us with a warm glow of nostalgia.
Ep12 Music and Peace by Music and Peace:
In this tightly scripted, densely informative episode, Addie gives us a great introduction to the intersection of music and peace in the 60’s.
And now, on to the winners!
Second prize goes to:
Ep 1.8 Hygge by 60 Second Shalom:
This delightful microcast episode gives a rich description of a Scandinavian term that means “the pursuit of everyday happiness”. Well recorded and perfectly paced, this sixty-second slice gave us lovely introduction to an idea that resonated with many other ykyz’ers.
First prize goes to:
Ep. 7 Introvert Nation by IAmMillennial:
In this episode, IAmMillennial nails the microcast format with a perfect mini-intro, high quality audio, and a well scripted text. The episode is fun, engaging, and despite the short length takes us on a mini-journey that captures a slice of IAmMillennial inner life, and of the times we live in.
Congratulations to 60 Second Shalom and IAmMillennial. Your prizes will be sent out today!
