Next week is Transgender Awareness Week, so the Anthems podcast will be releasing five special episodes featuring conversations between ten influential activists, creatives and trailblazers. The ambition is to highlight and amplify trans voices, and will feature discussions on trans representation on stage and screen, and the purpose of and importance of queer spaces.

Meanwhile, last week was the Independent Podcast Awards, which celebrates podcasts without a big corporate backer, recognising the work of shows that are put together at home or during someone’s free time. 

We have written up a post featuring all of the big winners on the Podcast Rex website, but a special shout out to some of the winners that have been featured in this newsletter. The music podcast Folk on Foot won the Best Arts & Culture category, The Bestseller Experiment won the Books category and the coveted Podcast of the Year went to Celebrity Catch Up: Life After That Thing I Did. Congratulations to all of them.
