Who We Are 

Established in 2018, the Columbus Podcast Awards got its start as an idea from local a podcaster Jerome Barkley Jr, who realized that the podcast scene in Columbus was huge and growing. Seeing a opportunity to create and platform that recognizes and celebrate the best podcasts in the city from all categories. With the help of other local podcasters, a team was assembled to organize and plan The Columbus Podcast Awards. 

The Columbus Podcast Awards primary focus is to highlight and acknowledge podcasts that are Columbus based and takes time and effort to produce a well thought out podcast. While most podcasters are podcasting for free or as a hobby, it is important to the Columbus Podcast Awards Team to curate an event that recognizes and awards podcasters who are consistent with their platforms and produce quality podcast episodes.
