What is the International Podcast Day Caribbean Panel?
International Podcast Day is an annual day of celebration of the power of podcasts on September 30th. In the past 2 years there has been an explosion of Caribbean Podcasts and Podcasters in the region and diaspora. These podcasts create general content or content Caribbean specific.
As we continue to grow in the space – either creating or consuming content – Caribbean Podcast Directory partnered with International Podcast Day organizers Dave Lee and Steve Lee to present a Caribbean Panel. This year’s panel titled – From Patois to Kreyol: The Power of Podcasting in the Caribbean Community.
About the Caribbean Panel
From Patois to Kreyol: The Power of Podcasting in the Caribbean Community, features five Caribbean Podcasters represent different countries. They are:
Soraya Louis: Host of Ti Chéz Ba, representing Haiti.
Kadia Francis: Host of Digital Jamaica, representing of course Jamaica 🙂
The panel was moderated by me, Kerry-Ann – a Jamaican in New York with a North American Caribbean Diaspora viewpoint. I am the creator of Carry On Friends, one of the first and longest running Caribbean focused podcast. I am also the founder of the Caribbean Podcast Directory – the Caribbean’s first podcast directory.
