Rachael Brown, Josie Taylor, Tim Roxburgh & Martin Peralta of the ABC have won the 2020 Podcasting Quill.
Exhaustive effort to build trust over days, weeks and months to gain secure talent exclusively (international secret location) with some perceived danger in doing so. The host putting herself in story added a welcomed dimension - her vulnerability meant for a truly authentic delivery. Balanced suspense and delivery of information through narration; first-class audio production values and use of cross-platform curation contributed all the ingredients of best-practice podcasting.
