Mic Drop podcast nominated for Peabody Award
Honour celebrates best storytelling across broadcasting and streaming media
Montreal-produced podcast Mic Drop has been nominated for a Peabody Award in the podcast/radio category.
The awards celebrate storytelling across broadcasting and streaming media. The 60 nominees were chosen by 19 jurors from over 1,300 entries from television, podcasts/radio and the web in entertainment, news, documentary, arts, children's/youth, public service and multimedia programming.
Mic Drop is a podcast that hands the mic over to teenagers and lets them tell stories in their own voices. Created in 2018, the goal of the series was to provide a safe space for teens to talk about what's on their minds – without any adult interruptions.
Mic Drop is created and produced by Shari Okeke and Carrie Haber. You can listen to all seasons here.
