The Podcast Academy announced today that its Board of Governors will award the Stuff You Should Know podcast with the Governors Award, which “recognizes the impact a podcast or individual has had on the industry.”

Co-hosts Chuck Bryant and Josh Clark will accept the honor at the third annual Ambies on March 7th.

The Ambies will be hosted by Larry Wilmore and the event will be streamed LIVE on Amazon Music Channel on Twitch from the International Theater in Las Vegas from 6-7:30 p.m. PST.

“The ways in which Josh and Chuck have been able to shape the industry and sustain growth has been phenomenal, and why it’s a privilege to award them with this year’s Governors Award,” said Donald Albright, Chairperson of TPA and co-founder at Tenderfoot TV. “This year marks the 15th year anniversary of the ‘Stuff You Should Know’ podcast and 15 years of these two creating meaningful and impactful conversations both inside the audio community and beyond.”

“There aren’t many surprises that come along in the 15th year of a career,” said Bryant, co-host of “Stuff You Should Know.” “Receiving the Governor’s Award is a rare exception, and we are super excited and honored to be there in person to receive it. It gives us a chance to pause and think a little about everything that’s happened with us and the industry since 2008. Being a veteran of what has turned out to be a lasting new medium is pretty cool, and we look forward to receiving this honor.”
