The Ambies celebrate podcasting excellence and elevate the awareness and status of podcasts as a unique and personal medium for entertainment, information, storytelling and expression.
Burn the Boats checks all of those boxes.
"It's been such a privilege to host Burn the Boats. It seems we've struck a chord — a podcast about history makers and brave decisions, at a time when our country desperately needs real courage," noted Ken Harbaugh - Host of Burn the Boats. "I'm honored that this show was named alongside such giants as NPR Politics and Crooked Media, but the real credit goes to the amazing production team that makes it happen. And, of course, to the listeners who make it all worthwhile."
Variety magazine and Hollywood Reporter announced the Podcast Academy's 164 nominees for the inaugural Ambies Awards, including a Burn the Boats mention. Rolling Stone lists Burn the Boats among nominees in 23 categories, including podcasts showcasing names like Matthew McConaughey, Tessa Thompson, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Malcolm Gladwell.
