Regarded as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international awards organization honoring excellence on the Internet. The Webby Awards highlight the best of the Internet, from websites and videos to apps and games. Proof is nominated for best podcast in the lifestyle category.
As a nominee, Proof is also eligible to win a Webby People’s Voice Award, which is voted online by fans across the globe. That means you can help us win by casting your vote for Proof before Thursday, April 18th.
Hosted by Bridget Lancaster, Proof investigates the hidden backstories behind the foods you love (or hate). Episodes have included deep dives into celery’s illustrious reputation during the Victorian era, how Jelly belly figured out how to make a stinky sock flavor, and the invention of the tiki bar classic mai tai in. . . Oakland.
"It's so humbling that Proof has been nominated for a Webby, especially since it's our podcast's first year," Bridget said. "Our small but mighty team of producers—Kaitlin Keleher, and Sara Joyner, and I—has worked really hard to make this podcast possible, and the fact that we've made something that people enjoy makes it all worthwhile."
