Now we know for sure that podcasting is legit.



For the first time, three podcasts were among the winners of the 2020 Alfred I. DuPont/Columbia University Awards. In fact, the podcasts in question took home all three audio awards: “Bag Man,” from Rachel Maddow and MSNBC; “Believed,” from Michigan Radio and NPR; and “In the Dark,” from American Public Media. Commenting on the awards, Jury Chair Cheryl Gould, a former NBC News executive, said, “Journalists are playing a critical role in holding the powerful accountable, and we are proud to honor these DuPont winners for their commitment.”
