“Another way of putting it, I don’t know who said this but, ‘If you’re going through hell, keep going.’”

“In this environment I think podcasts have this amazing place in people’s hearts because they feel personal, they feel human, they feel intimate, and that’s exactly what people need right now.”

“This is an organization that the goals are to promote, to network, and to recognize excellence.”

“I think that podcasts are still a nascent medium and I think we don’t have enough ways of signaling and recognizing excellence that are given by a non-for-profit, neutral organization.”
