DustPod is proud and honoured to have won the Best Branded Podcast category at the inaugural Irish Podcast Awards held in Dublin on Friday 16th September.

The award is for their production of Under Construction with Chadwicks, which delivered trade talk, tips and banter for trade and construction workers across Ireland. The show was presented by Aidan Power with comedian Fred Cooke.

Speaking after the awards company founder Dusty Rhodes said:

“Some people think branded podcasts can be a little boring, but you know what, the entire team at Chadwicks are as passionate, particular and proud about their work as we are about podcasts! They know the hundreds of little touches that lie behind plasterboard to make a perfect home, and gave us time and space to do likewise with podcast production. That attention to detail has paid off with an excellent response from listeners, a No.1 slot on Apple and now the Best Branded Podcast.”

At the awards, Dusty thanked Chadwicks CEO Patrick Atkinson, Marketing Director Tara Brennan, and Teneo’s Seán Earley and Nicola Halloran for helping make it happen.

Dusty Rhodes is a muti-award-winning presenter and audio producer who has made over 1,000 podcasts since 2006. Before that, he had a 15-year national radio career with RTE (Ireland), RTL (Europe), Atlantic 252 (UK) and Bauer Radio Network (UK).
