Ewan Spence’s Edinburgh Fringe Podcast nominated for a BAFTA

Ewan Spence, occasional co-host of the Movie Show with me and Cameron Reilly, has been nominated for a Scottish BAFTA for his podcast of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Now, let’s just get this clear. A podcast has been nominated for a BAFTA. A BAFTA. Y’know, the award with the golden mask statuette? The sort of award that Ewan McGregor gets. A BAFTA, ffs.

As far as I am aware, this is the first podcast, ever, to be nominated for a serious and well respected industry award.

Huge congratulations to Ewan (Spence, that is, not McGregor. I’d be a year late for him). I know how much work he put into the Edinburgh Fringe Festival podcast, and this nomination is well, well deserved.
