In 2021, Cowshed and the regional services spotted a gap in adoption resources for a podcast. Two years and as many series later, Truth Be Told has won silver at the British Podcast Awards.
The second series of the podcast for the National Adoption Service included a UK first: a podcast produced and presented by adopted young people.
Because we can’t talk about the lives of adopted people without involving them in the conversation.
Over the course of a year, nine young people aged 13-26 came together to develop the series finale and received training on podcasting and content from Cowshed and our partner Bengo Media.
So being able to share the winning moment with one of the young contributors – Ellie-Rose – at the awards was a career highlight.
