The Internet is a wild and wonderful place—and on the Webby Podcast, we sit down with the people who make it that way.
Every year at the Webby Awards, we celebrate amazing work from across the Internet and across the globe, and each Webby Winner delivers a 5-Word Speech to accept their award.
Here’s our chance to go deeper: On the Webby Podcast, hosted by Webby Executive Director David-Michel Davies, we sit down with Webby winners, judges, and other brilliant minds to hear the stories of the Internet in a lot more than 5 words.
