The unexpurgated blog awards

Last night, one of the team hurried home from the bar to bring you the exciting news of the winners of the 2008 Blog of the Year Awards, or “BOTYs”

The 2008 blog awardsNow, in the cold light of day we can bring you much fuller coverage, with a podcast recording of the entire evening, just as earlier in the year we brought you a recording of the Campaign for Gender Balance Blog Awards.

I hope the ceremony makes sense as an audio recording but if any of the jokes seem obscure, feel free to ask for clarification in the comments.

And if you were there, and taking advantage of the excellent free ALDC/LGA sponsored wine, do please download the file and listen again. Put it on your iPod and listen to it the next time you take a bundle of leaflets out for delivery. I think the speeches were excellent, and well worth listening to sober too.

A word of warning, however – do be careful if you listen to this recording through headphones. I am a far from expert sound-recordist using clearly sub-professional equipment, and I’m not good at levels. Sometimes, the applause is (deservedly) deafeningly loud.

    Nyyyyargh. And that’s my reputation as an analytical thinker shot to pieces… Look, there was free wine, ok?
