2016 Parsec Awards Winners & Finalists

oh golly miss molly who knew there were sooo many sci-fi podcasts? I’ve decided to trawl about and add links for all of these as time permits ( ie: no more until I finish ep10 ) since the award givers themselves have neglected to do it on their website ( i’ve been under a rock obviously with no idea either that people gave out awards for audio drama – so yes we’ll be putting our hand up for one of them thanks!) They were sometimes hard to track and warning – some contain very adult content and this is a work in progress not all links have been added yet
