For the ones not familiar with them, the Parsec Awards are an annual set of awards created to recognise excellence in speculative fiction podcast in all its form. While they are of recent creation (first time was in 2006 at DragonCon) they have become quite prestigious for the podcast world.
On September 5, the 2016 winners have been announced, and among them, I’d like to highlight the following:
Best Speculative Fiction Comedy/Parody Podcast:
Improvised Star Trek -“The Voyages of the USS Sisyphus” by Christopher Rathjen and the USS Sisyphus Cast & Crew (Improvised)
Best Speculative Fiction Magazine or Anthology Podcast
