UTo give people a stage behind the microphones, the German Podcast Prize was awarded for the first time on Thursday. At least that’s the plan. Given the circumstances, there was no stage at all. The best audio products were chosen in the form of a podcast. Ariana Baborie (“men’s place setting”) and author Micky Beisenherz (“jewels in the mire of boredom”) moderated, the nominees of the individual categories took part by phone, very smoothly, after all there were professionals. Prizes were awarded for the best talk team, the best newcomer, the best journalistic achievement, the best interviewer, the best production, the best script and the audience award. There had been more than 700 submissions. These are the winners:

Best production: Talk-o-mat

Spotify organizes a blind date for two celebrities every two weeks. Two strangers sit completely unprepared at a table. Talk-o-mat determines the topics of the conversation, “an emotionless, randomly controlled machine.” The advantage: the machine knows neither sensitivity nor compassion. This means: many topics in a relatively short time, unbiased interview partners, spontaneous answers and above all conversations that would otherwise never have taken place. Actress Nilam Farooq sits at the table with musician Rolf Zuckowski and pop singer Miss Platnum meets Howard Carpendale. Polite getting to know each other, if it goes well, becomes a profound conversation after a few minutes.

Best newcomer and best talk team: couple diology

Ariana Babori describes the podcast as the supreme discipline. The word “podcast” – and talking is not as easy as it sounds, as word has gotten around. Especially not when you talk about affairs, alcohol addiction and sexuality. Author Charlotte Roche and her husband Martin Keß shamelessly address what many couples rarely address even in private. The public cannot be more intimate. There were two prizes for “Couple Diology”. Kess is a newcomer at almost 57 years old: “A sign that it is never too late. No matter what. “


Best script / best author: The very last interview

“The very last interview” is not actually a podcast – rather a mixture of audio book, crime story and autobiography. In her hip-hop thriller, presenter Visa Vie gives an insight into the German rap scene. It’s about the fictional hip-hop journalist Clara, who wants to kill Germany’s most successful rapper. How much of Visa Vie is in Clara and how much of the history in business is really true remains uncertain. The author already promised her fans in advance that she would write something new if she won the prize.
