Why these DINGHY Awards™?
Glad you asked. As I mentioned in Ep. 51, I was racking my brain to figure out which bucket of haphazardly-organized audio source material I should turn into the fifty-first episode…when suddenly it hit me:
Hey, I’ve done a s— ton of work to birth these first fifty episodes. As we get into a new year with bright prospects, why don’t we celebrate a little?
And once I got going on it, it really got the creative audio juices flowing. Why not make it sound like a real awards show like the GRAMMYs®, I thought?
…so I got into my REAPER audio software and got cookin’…
I even made some wax-sealed envelopes—not just for our two other presenters, but for me. What can I say? That’s just how I roll sometimes.
How did I select the winners?
In short…I didn’t. Here’s how the winners were selected:
- You voted.
- I counted ’em.
(Of course, the “accounting firm of Dewey, Cheatham & Howe” is—hopefully—fictitious, and the “Special Merit Awards” are just great excuses to recognize cool people. But in those four categories nominated in Episode 51, it’s very simple. You voted, I counted. And THANK YOU for voting!) The results should be visible later today at the above link. (I *think* I set them to become visible by 12:30, right after the premiere…but who knows?)

I mentioned in the podcast about Sondra’s blog about their current journey….which is totally making me jealous! https://sondrawinter.wixsite.com/in-the-lee
