Podcast awards

You may have noticed the new Podcast Awards banner above. The idea, as far as I can tell, is that you click on it to vote for your favourite podcast (ahem). There are numerous categories. What's So Funny?, I'm guessing, would fall under the 'comedy' category, although it's not a comedy show per se. Rather it's a show about comedy. But let's not quibble.

When you click, you'll see the rules, followed by the categories. Here are the rules:
You get to submit the nomination form "ONE" time only!. Please fill try nominate as many shows as you can and fill the nomination form out to the best of your ability! Once you hit Submit you are done for 2010! Please do not submit the same show in multiple categories find out what category your favorites shows want to be nominated in. Important: Do not nominate the "same show" for People's Choice and Best Produced, nominate 2 different shows in the top two categories. You can then nominate each show in one additional category each.
Look, I know as well as you that we have zero shot at winning. Not up against the likes of the redoubtable WTF with Marc Maron, the hilarious Pod F. Tompkast, and the silly Doug Loves Movies. I'm not kidding myself. But think of it this way: those shows are going to get thousands and thousands of votes from all over the world. Don't go with the flow. Be a leader. You don't win money if your horse comes in so it really doesn't matter if the show you vote for doesn't win. You'll be doing us a solid. And isn't that what it's really all about?

If nothing else, we've been on the air a lot longer than these more famous podcasts. That counts for something, right?
