The popular sex education podcast produced by Planned Parenthood of Western Washington received the annual innovation award from NPower Seattle, an organization that helps non-profits with technology.
Aimed at 18- to 30-year-olds, the "Speaking of Sex" podcast has more than 1,500 monthly downloads, radio stations are asking to play excerpts and national Planned Parenthood affiliates are following suit. Npower's announcement said it's "leading the way into the dawn of digital media for nonprofits."
Finalists were Reel Grrls' "Media That Matters" program involving teen girls who direct videos about nonprofit causes and WithinReach's ParentHelp123.org Web site that offers families access to health and nutrition support.
