  • I found out about the Global Voices podcast on Georgia Popplewell’s Caribbean Free Radio.

    For the last year I’ve been kicking around the idea of doing an international podcast magazine. I only had the haziest ideao of what such a show would be like. Global Voices goes beyond anything I could possibly imagine. The show is vibrant, intimate and funny. And hungry! The Kazahkstan Stories food segment made me ravenous for some besparmak.

    I look forward to future episodes!

  • Hello Georgia. Interesting compilation… I really enjoyed listening to this first episode. Keep em’ coming :)
