In case you missed it, I have a podcast!
After months of planning and preparation … oh, who am I kidding? After months of procrastinating, I have finally released my podcast – The Migration Generation.
The Migration Generation is a collection of conversations between those who have left South Africa, Zimbabwe, and any of the other Southern African countries, and immigrated to other parts of the world. Not only do I chat to expats who have left (the #ImStayingOverseas people), but I also talk to those who have no intention of leaving (#Imstaying) and those who possibly left only to return when, for them, the grass wasn’t greener overseas.
I aim to present a balanced view of the issue of migration. Somewhere along the line, people’s freedom to choose where they live has become a very contentious issue. Many people feeling that they are not allowed to voice their own opinions for fear that it will offend everyone! And I can’t have that.
This platform will be used so that those who want to have their say about the immigration issue can do so.
Podcast Release Schedule & Details
The podcast was released on the 7th of January 2020. I initially released the trailer, my introductory story, and then my first interview with Laetitia Corder who left SA to build a new life in New Zealand.
On the 13th of January, I released my third episode where I chat to Nikki from Cape Town who is making plans to leave South Africa to move to the UK.
I aim to release a new episode every week. Fingers crossed!
