Congratulations to our talented production team and wonderful host Lucy Cavendish!
We are delighted to announce that the first season of Later Dater won Gold in the British Podcast Award genre: Sex and Relationships.
We want to recognise the strong team behind the show; Host & Journalist Lucy Cavendish, Producer Ami Bennett and Assistant Producer Faye Lawrence, audio editor Troy Holmes and Executive Producer Ben Freeman.
Also, a big thank you to all the show’s brilliant guests who spoke genuinely and frankly about their experiences and clearly struck a chord with both listeners and judges.
As podpod reported: ‘While some of the lifestyles covered in the show could be judged or made the subject of fun in the wrong hands, Cavendish is an open and respectful interviewer. She brings all her skills as both a counsellor and journalist to the table to listen and learn from her guests, whether they’re into polyamory or BDSM. On the other end of the spectrum, she gives the same respectful ear to both virgins and those for whom sex is inextricably tied up with religion.
With informative and relatable advice, Later Dater aims to help listeners live their most fulfilling love lives, whether they’re young and looking to explore their sex life without shame, or if they’re older and interested in making a fresh start.’
The judges said:
“This podcast showcases well-handled conversations with really interesting perspectives on relationships – things people may have questions about but are too scared to ask.”
We’re thrilled that Later Dater has been acknowledged and a huge well done to everyone involved with the Production.
