Nominate the MuggleNet podcast family for the 2013 Podcast Awards!

The People’s Podcast Awards recognizes the best podcasters in the world by allowing the people (listeners and podcasters) to nominate and then vote for their favorite podcast. MuggleNet has been no stranger to these awards in the past, MuggleCast having won three times – in 2006 for People’s Choice and in 2008 & 2009 for Best Entertainment. Now, MuggleNet has a large, expanded family of amazing podcasts and is asking you once again to do what you did for MuggleCast by nominating all of our amazing content.

First, MuggleNet Academia: The podcast, hosted by Keith Hawk and Hogwarts professor John Granger, takes a look “through the entire Harry Potter series for various elements in alchemy, literary components, composition attributes, as well as available classes at universities and colleges around the world, and various unique studies that are being implemented today.”

Our global book club (or “reread,” as we like to call it), Alohomora!, just completed its 50th episode, which featured Chapter 12 of Goblet of Fire. It is the only Harry Potter podcast that features fans on every single weekly episode, not only by reading comments and playing voicemail but also as a GUEST HOST. Yes, that’s right. You, too, can be on a MuggleNet podcast.

Most likely the most creative podcast you will ever listen to is MuggleNet Fan Fiction’s AudioFictions! As you may have guessed, they read fan fiction that is voted upon by fans – but they don’t just read it – oh, no. They have an entire team of readers, affectionately called MerMuggles, that read the tales à la Jim Dale or Stephen Fry. Yes, it truly is that amazing.

Last but certainly not least, the newest podcast to join the MuggleNet family is general entertainment show Hogwarts Radio. They aren’t new by any means, though. The show has been around since 2008 and was first associated with now defunct HPANA. It has over 120 episodes, fun hosts, and wildly entertaining segments.

So here it is – the part we need you to help us out with: NOMINATIONS.

Please head over to the People’s Podcast Awards website, and vote for MuggleNet in the following categories. Please note that you can only vote ONCE, and you MUST use a valid email address, or the nomination won’t count.

I am a 30-something Ravenclaw/Slytherin from Massachusetts. I've been lucky in life and can attribute a lot of that to Harry Potter. Without it, I wouldn't have at least 80% of the things that I do today, including my job & closest friends. I truly despise Sirius Black.
