In December 2016, we hosted a listening party in Brooklyn, New York at the cosy loft of our afikra friends. We debuted episode #012, Birthplace of the UAE, and producer Jackie Sofia facilitated a discussion afterwards. She recorded the discussion, and shared the file with the rest of our Kerning Cultures team who weren't able to make the event.
Our team listened to the recording from the evening, and the conversation that followed sent us all into some deep questioning of our roles as journalists.
Today on Kerning Cultures, come behind-the-scenes with us.
Produced by Jackie Sofia, with editorial support by Razan Alzayani and Hebah Fisher. Special thanks to Lilly Crown, Attiya Latif, Beth Watson, and Taylor Ruckle. Sound design by Mohamed Khreizat.
