Mental Ideas Podcaster Sadie Kaye was at the AIBs… kind of…
My virtual awards date was Hobo-dog Kaye. My attire was my dressing gown. The time was 2am. I’d run out of wine 4 hours ago so I toasted The AIBs 2020 with a cup of FUEL high protein instant porridge. The show got off to an explosive start as international news broadcasters competed for who could win the PR contract for rebranding Hong Kong! The surprising thing was how nostalgic for 2019 it made me feel. That’s when I realized how bad 2020 had been. It was an intense two-part awards program produced and presented with unwavering gravitas. The lightest moment was when the Association for International Broadcasting uploaded a mugshot of my leering face dementedly side-eying the award. Even I was scared my photo might glitch to life and shatter the screen of my iPad in a spontaneous smash and grab!
Luckily, it was all over before I could get in one good swing of my axe! Sky News StoryCast was Highly Commended and Tortoise Media‘s My Mother’s Murder was announced the Factual Podcast winner. Congratulations to the Association for International Broadcasting on two excellent awards shows! It was a bewildering honor for Mental Ideas to be nominated. You can hear a clip of me chatting to Depressed Comedian Larry Feign on the Mental Ideas Podcast above or watch the full awards shows here!
