Meet 6 podcasts hitting the Bullseye this year

As you may know from an earlier post or from social media, we’re proudly continuing our tradition of supporting the British Podcast Awards, but this year we’ve done something slightly different.

We helped develop the Bullseye Award, for podcasts delivering a compelling listening experience to niche audiences. Now that the full slate of nominations are out, we wanted to shout out the finalists.

Probably True

This “slightly filthy” LGBT storytelling podcast has picked up awards in both 2017 and 2018. Fingers crossed for this year!

Ask the Nincompoops

This charming, family-friendly podcast features funny grown-ups Andy Stanton and Carrie Quinlan educating kids on a variety of topics.

Centuries of Sound

This ambitious audio time machine is exactly what the awards are about. It’s a unique opportunity to experience what the world sounded like over 150 years ago.

Somerset House Studios

This fascinating interview podcast dives into artists’ work and inspiration, opening the doors of the London-based creative workspace to the world.

Farmerama



This is another podcast for which this award could’ve been specifically designed. Each month, small-scale farmers share real stories in a bid to reconnect us with our farming and rural communities.

BBC Somerset’s Cricket Show: Extras

Also entered for the running is this fortnightly offering from the BBC, featuring interview snippets from Charlie Taylor’s local radio cricket show.


Watch the nomination announcement

The team behind the wildly popular podcast No Such Thing as a Fish presented this year’s nominations live, and dedicate a significant number of seconds discussing how to pronounce Podiant 🤣

The category winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in fancy London town on May 18th. Podiant’s founder, Mark — that’s me! — will be there, so come and say hi! Loads of luck to each of the nominees.
