The Podcast Academy has announced the nominees for its second annual Awards for Excellence in Audio. The Ambies will be co-hosted by Ross Mathews and Nikki Boyer on March 22, which will be streamed LIVE exclusively on Twitch at 6PM PT/9PM ET from The Mayan Theater in Los Angeles.

The ceremony will highlight 178 nominees across 25 categories with winners to be selected by every voting member of The Podcast Academy — in addition to a Governor’s Award that will be announced at a later date.

Donald Albright, Chairman of the Podcast Academy and President & Co-Founder of Tenderfoot TV stated: “The Podcast Academy is proud to share that it received a 34% increase in submissions compared to its inaugural awards last year. As the medium continues to grow, we’ve decided to introduce two new categories: Best Indie Podcast and Best Podcast for Kids. The inclusion of these categories is a testament to our mission of supporting independent creators and recognizing areas of our expanding industry. Congratulations to all of our well-deserved nominees.”
