The Nialler9 Podcast Awards 2021


It’s the final part of the trilogy of the Nialler9 Best of the year podcasts, and as tradition, it’s the one where and Niall and Andrea Cleary get loose.

With wine and whiskey coffee in hand, we nominate winners in increasingly esoteric categories, aka shoe-horn things into an episode so we can talk about them.

What was the best sax solo of 2021? What were our favourite live gigs? Best song discovered in a film? Biggest dose? Most disappointing album of 2021? A trend you wish would go away? Best rap guest verse(s) aka The Andre 3000 award? Best cover song? Best music film? Plus, our chance to completely talk Succession spoilers and share our Discord community’s end of the year poll results.

It’s the Nialler9 Podcast Awards.

This episode of the Nialler9 Podcast is brought to you by Irish audio tech brand OneSonic. Onesonic have got Christmas discounts on all of their products including ANC headphones, bluetooth speakers and wireless earbuds @
