In May, we officially launched Global Voices Radio as a way to highlight interesting audio content from the GV community and from our partners around the world. This streaming Internet station, which you can access on your computer or mobile device, offers interviews, world music, and audio features. While we are still exploring various programming possibilities and the addition of new audio partners, we would like to draw your attention to some of the new programs curated for the month of July.
Global Voices programming
GV Radio will continue to feature previous Global Voices podcasts that provide insight into our extended community's work. We are also highlighting audio from featured GV Face episodes, such as a conversation with our co-founders Rebecca MacKinnon and Ethan Zuckerman to celebrate Global Voices’ 10th Anniversary. In addition, there is an Advox discussion with members of the Tor community called “Demystifying the Onion Router.”
Programming includes the second episode of Africa Cheza, an African music podcast curated by community member James Propa in Uganda, and an interview conducted by a member of the GV Latin America community, Robert Valencia, who spoke with Monica Carrillo about the current state of Afro-Peruvian rights.
New podcast partners
We will continue to feature partner content introduced in our initial post. And thanks to recommendations from members of the GV community, we are pleased to add new partners, such as Loa Podcast from Vietnam:
Loa is a podcast that explores events, ideas, and stories that shape Vietnam today. Join us as we journey into the issues of the day through thoughtful commentaries, insightful features, intimate interviews and more, all brought to life through sound and sight.
We invite you to take a look at the schedule for the coming week, which will be updated regularly with new programming. Look for tweets from the Global Voices Twitter account (@globalvoices) and with the hashtag #GVRadio announcing what is now playing. You can listen through the player widget above or directly on the GV Radio landing page. Thanks for listening to GV Radio.
