Regardless of the events of the Succession finale, the Roy family is coming out on top after all.
HBO’s Succession Podcast, hosted by journalist Kara Swisher, is Adweek’s 2023 Podcast of the Year, with the production also taking the award for Best TV/Streaming Podcast. And Swisher couldn’t be prouder of the HBO podcast team, Audacy’s Pineapple Street Studios and the whole experience.
“Every bit of it was enjoyable,” Swisher told Adweek. “I can’t think of a moment I was ever annoyed and not delighted.”
The podcast host and journalist, whose credits also include New York Magazine’s On with Kara Swisher and Pivot, said the show’s success came down to one simple fact: “HBO let us do what we wanted.”
