A Hackney resident's podcast about dogs has been announced as a finalist at the upcoming Animal Star Awards. 

Broadcaster and canine expert, Anna Webb, lives in Hackney where she creates her podcast, A Dog's Life, nominated for Best Pet Podcast. 

The audio series is approaching its first anniversary and is an exploration of modern dog ownership and Anna's lifelong passion for the animals. 

Anna said: “Dogs are amazing. They are our companions, guardians, and much more – they complete us.

"I’m so thrilled to have made it through the judging process to be a finalist.

"It’s great recognition, I’m excited to air more episodes that are being received so well”.

The podcast has resonated with listeners during lockdown as stories of puppies being abandoned or sold online hit headlines and demand increases for companionship during the pandemic.
