The Spinoff Podcast Network claims gold and silver at 2021 New Zealand Podcast Awards

The Spinoff Podcast Network has picked up a pair of wins in the 2021 New Zealand Podcast Awards, with Business is Boring claiming gold in the Best Business Podcast category and The Real Pod taking out silver in Best Entertainment & Comedy.


The judges of the inaugural awards agreed Business is Boring was “anything but”, praising host Simon Pound’s “inspiring stories and angles” in his interviews with a wide range of New Zealand entrepreneurs and business leaders. Started in 2017, the podcast has clocked up over 200 episodes and almost as many guests. It is currently taking a break before returning with a refreshed format in the new year.

Placing second in Entertainment & Comedy between two commercial radio morning shows, The Real Pod was “fun and easy to listen to”, according to the judges who also praised hosts Jane Yee, Alex Casey and Duncan Greive for their rapport and relatability. The Real Pod debuted in 2015 and has gained a loyal audience through its astute recaps of reality TV and hilarious reviews of real life in New Zealand.
