I have the final list of 220 Podcast that will be on the slate. I am now awaiting verification from the folks that do the auditing. I will be posting the complete list here and on the PodcastAwards.com site as soon as I get the thumbs up.
We had a lot of shows that did not make the cut some did not meet the minimum show requirement or had started podcasting after the cut off. I was fairly impressed this year as we only disqualified 7 sites for not having RSS feeds on their websites.
One thing that is still beyond shameful is that of everyone that was nominated nearly 70% had RSS feeds that either had errors or were completely invalid. I will have some more info on that later. PodcastaAwards.com
