Australia’s top podcasters were celebrated in Sydney tonight at the first Podcast Awards for Australia, the first national awards for this new industry.  About 200 guests were at the Giant Dwarf Theatre to see the awards for best podcasts covering 10 categories and sponsored by and Australian start-up Podmatcher who launched their website on the same night.

Taking out the music category was Aiden G’s podcast Vinyl Soul. Other contenders in this category were The Garret Podcast and Out Of The Box from FBi radio.

One of the judges Jarrod Pickford from Podmatcher said “This was a really strong category. Even the judges had no idea who had won. I picked most of the winners but this category really came down to the wire”.

Vinyl Soul boasts it’s the soundtrack of our lives. It includes interviews with well-known music industry people in Australia.
