Crossing the Line, a podcast from Population Media Center, has been nominated for the Webby Awards. The Webby Awards are put on by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences to honor outstanding digital work. Crossing the Line is nominated for the Public Service & Activism, Podcast category.

“We’re honored to receive this nomination,” said Bill Ryerson, President and Founder of Population Media Center. “For 25 years we have been dedicated to advancing reproductive health and rights because we know how important it is.”

Crossing the Line is an immersive documentary-style abortion podcast that follows individuals seeking abortions and the heroes who help along the way. Each episode allows the listener to experience the barriers people face and how they overcome them. Launched in summer of 2022, as Roe v. Wade fell, the podcast documents pieces of the ongoing battle for abortion rights in the U.S.

There are two awards Crossing the Line can win in the Public Service & Activism Podcast category: the Webby Award and the Webby People’s Voice Award. The Webby Award will be determined by the members of the Academy and the Webby People’s Voice Award is based on fan voting.
