Bloomin’ Heck – I Won! Thank You Ockhams Awards For The Podcast Award! #QEDCon

It’s 8am on a Sunday morning. I’m deep into working on a number of projects and assignments for school, and dealing with an injury that has flared up *just* in time to get in the way of my working on a number of projects… and I forgot when the Skeptic Ockham Awards were on.

I thought it was on tomorrow night. And I shouldn’t be on the internet, I have too many projects, argh

But the Token Skeptic podcast just won the podcast category in the Ockham Awards, being held over at QEDCon in the UK!

Here’s the speech I sent to Hayley Stevens to present on my (highly, highly unlikely, I thought) behalf if I won:

Big thank yous to the The Skeptic, The Ockhams Awards Committee and QEDCon, who considered the Token Skeptic worthy of being considered with the other great shows in the running for this prize – keeping company with them was honour enough, so please do support all of our podcasts. 
[I mean that - podcasting can be a big challenge at times, and it's an ongoing commitment that should get some love - so kudos also to Skeptics with a "K"; MonsterTalk; PodDelusion and Skeprechauns. They're tough competition!]
Extra thanks to CSI for their support and for featuring transcripts of my show on their website – and to Derek and Swoopy of the skeptical podcast Skepticality, as theirs was the first show that inspired me and supported me.
Finally, the biggest thank you is to all my listeners, subscribers, and the many awesome people who I’ve interviewed for the Token Skeptic – if you wish to congratulate me, please buy Hayley something at the restaurant after the awards. Have a great night!

Look! It’s all pink! Thank you everyone! Congratulations to all the award-winners and finalists! Please get Hayley a drink!

    You Won!

    Callooo Callay! Wonderful, wonderful! Congratulations!

    I know you weren’t expecting this–you even had me doubting! But congratulations to the hardest-working individual in all of skepticism! Hooray! (I’d set off fireworks, but it’s raining.)
