Past Winners

Legacy Shows

Legacy Shows are podcasts that we honor for their excellence in podcasting and who have won a podcast award category a minimum of five times.

Legacy Shows that have never won in the People's Choice Award category are still eligible for that distinction and are automatically entered into the People’s Choice category and are not required to register.

The following podcasts have been honored in their primary categories, those categories have been renamed in honor of their shows. There shows are no longer eligible to be nominated for a Podcast Award.

The People's Choice top Award has been renamed to honor the Podfather of Podcasting.
