CONTEST: Win an iPod from BUCKET for voting in the Podcast Awards
I’m cruising around the Internet Tuesday, and I see that the little podcast I co-host, called BUCKET, has been nominated as one of 10 comedy podcasts up for the 2007 Best Comedy Podcast award at the Podcast Awards Web site.
Wow, I’m honored! And surprised! Jen and I do our show from split locations — me from Stamford, Conn. and Jen from Nowhereville, Pa.
Surprisingly, we’ve kept our chemistry intact despite the space difference. And some say we’re still funny.
So, after talking with my co-host, we’ve decided to give out some “incentive” to encourage podcast listeners to vote in the Awards — even if you’re not voting for BUCKET.
Just vote for someone in the comedy category and win some cool prizes. Would a free iPod help?
I thought so! Keep reading…
