The Savoy Hotel London saw Ireland’s longest running garden podcast and former radio show The Sodshow, reach the finals of The Garden Media Guild awards (UK) 2017. It was the first ever Irish broadcast to reach the shortlist for Radio Broadcast of the Year. Whilst former winners have included The Royal Horticultural Society, The Guardian Newspaper and The BBC Gardeners’ Question Time (first aired in 1947), Dublin based award winning landscaper Peter Donegan’s unsponsored production this year was up against The Sun newspaper’s Peter Seabrook, former Guardian editor Jane Perrone and the overall winners of the prestigious accolade Marian Foster of the BBC.
With two live podcasts this year (one from Salt Lake City, Utah) and noted by Gardenista in the Best Garden Podcasts of 2017, it may be fair to suggest you watch this space.
The Sodshow is available every Friday on iTunes, all good podcast stores, and at www.sodshow.com.
