SF Chronicle receives Society for Features Journalism awards

The San Francisco Chronicle received six awards in the Society for Features Journalism’s annual Excellence-in-Features competition, including first place for Best Podcast and second place for Food Feature.

The contest honors the best features, lifestyle, arts and entertainment journalism across the United States.

Chronicle podcast Extra Spicy’s second season, hosted by restaurant critic Soleil Ho and columnist Justin Phillips and produced by Erika Carlos and Téa Francesca Price won for Best Podcast.

“While food is the throughline for this podcast,” the judges wrote, “we appreciate how the hosts go beyond that by covering — among other things — the minimum wage debate, Chinatown’s identity, and their own perspectives of the rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans. It’s not just a pod about food; it’s also about our current culture and states of mind.”

“Through the lens of food, we aim to create space for inclusive, meaningful dialogue, and we’re so grateful to guests who make this possible and to our listeners for their ongoing support,” said Price. “To feel that the stories we share are resonating and to have our passion for the craft recognized is a privilege.”
