Episode 61: FAQ and Fave Podcasts

In this episode, we answer some frequently asked questions about Dialogika, such as why are we so serious in our conversations and topics, why do we speak in English (and the baggage that is privilege which comes with that), and the perennial favorite, are we a couple in real life (the answer to that is a definite no). It’s also been a while since the both of us have chatted with each other in depth on the podcast, so this was a good time to reconnect with you listeners and also go deeper into our answers regarding these questions, some of which we’ve heard since the very beginning of Dialogika.

We also talk about some of our favorite podcast personally (aside from the classics such as Radiolab and This American Life), such as Gimlet Media’s The Horror of Dolores Roach and the New York Times’ The Daily, as well as sports podcasts like BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily and Jetty Media’s Game of Our Lives, and culture podcasts like Griefcast. We actually had to cut out a bunch of our other favorite podcasts from this week’s episode due to time, so we’ve listed it on the resources column to your right — please check them out!

Thanks for listening!
