In conversation, about Local & Global Issues
Who are we?
We’re a team. And without being one, this wouldn’t be a Podcast. We’re A Tax Analyst, A Theologian, A Digital Marketing Guy and a Writer. We’re four individuals who connected over coffee. Those conversations are now the D’Localites Podcast. We came together plugged a mike into a phone, and 7 Episodes later – upped our game – to four microphones plugged into a mixer and a laptop with Audacity on it. We made our voices heard (SoundCloud), people wrote to us, and we’ve been Podcasting ever since.
Pure motivation, sometimes we podcasted into the night, it was fun, we podcasted from a farm – out in the middle of nowhere (We have pictures on Facebook). There were encouragements, discouragements; but we podcasted under the moon, in the Bangalore Summer sun, we had friends visit and podcast with us. We’ve been at it since 20th January 2019.
Podcasting’s been more than just an opinion; what’s interesting about a voice, is finding that voice in the wide world.
Why are we here?
There’s something beautiful about slipping into existential thought, finding yourself in conversation – about why we are here, and tackling those ancient questions of purpose.
As The Theologian often says, “Here’s is the thing”: The Mission of our Podcast is about finding a way to have a particular conversation, to be intentional in engaging with issues that matter, topics we love, and the things that challenge us. We don’t have an agenda, the purpose of our Podcast is to get our listeners to think, and engage with us, for a wider conversation.
It’s already a journey, an adventure; a million words, a single Podcast with (so far) 4 Segments. We’ve got themes, that have emerged like phantoms from our conversations of old. The #Imperfect Segment (with its interesting origins) has been about so much that is contentious in Religion. The #Wonderlust Segment explores how travel unleashes the imagination. We do #Inreviews, discussing movies & books. #G’Local a Segment in which we talk about War, Peace, The News, and we try to make sense of what’s going on in this crazy world of ours.
We are the D’localites: we’re The Theologian, The Writer, The Tax analyst, The Digital Marketing Guy, we’re giving the Podcast a couple of years, and then what? When we’re not Podcasting, we’re usually talking to each other, and thinking about where our conversations are taking us.
