“CHECK YOUR DM” Might Be A Cultural Reset In Ghana’a Podcasting Landscape

Published

on

Oral Storytelling has always been a part of our cultural set up. They were mostly driven by radio, but with the marked increase in popularity of audio-on-demand format known as podcasts it goes to say the world has opened to taboo and even risqué subjects.

Undeniably, it is hard to meet your partner at the bar, art gallery, party, or even at the church than they make it look like in romcoms. Online is the commonest place people are looking for companionship, love, sex, and everything in between. Despite this, people are still very uncomfortable admitting they met someone online; especially on dating apps. No matter the app, they’re more comfortable saying they slid into someone’s DM.

Check Your DM brings you real stories of how people are navigating the complexities of online dating and sex culture in this digital age. “Hosting Check Your DM means I get to be a part of conversations on online dating and finding companionship, which also helps me understand my path as well as be a source of information for other people searching for answers.” – Fui Can–Tamaklo

Podcasts are perfect content for millennial who are known for their fickle attitude towards content consumption, and if we’re being honest, towards everything else; including their preferred online dating app.

This show is refreshing, honest, entertaining, and admittedly bold. It demystifies the myth surrounding online dating in this social age without trying. “for me this means opening up a pathway for others to talk about their dating mishaps. There is healing in knowing you’re not alone in various situations. CYDM gives me the opportunity to provide solidarity to all who need it” – Helen Appiah – Ampofo.

Check Your DM is the first of many diversified podcasts produced for a well-defined audience by The Listening Post Network the audio content network of our parent company Muse Media Networks. The mission of LPN is to curate, produce and tell audio stories for an impassioned audience. Check Your DM is available every Friday on; Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Boomplay, Aftown, Deezer, and Stitcher.

Major Political Parties To Take Part In 3Sports Election Debate

Published

on

3Sports, the sports department of leading television network TV3, will on September 30 hold a debate for four of the country’s mainstream political parties NPP, NDC, PNC and PPP. Airing at 9pm, the debate is intended to give the parties an opportunity to speak to their policy statement on sports as captured in their 2021-2025 manifestos.

The event will be held at the McDan La Town Park in La, Accra and will see the parties take turns to answer questions from the hosts Thierry Nyann and Eva Okyere. Group Head of Sports at Media General, Juliet Bawuah says the debate presents the parties with a huge platform to elevate the discourse around manifesto promises, where sports is concerned.

“The 3Sports debate is meant to subject to strict scrutiny, the promises made by the political parties in the area of sports in the respective manifestos.

“It also affords them an opportunity to speak on what they have already done. We want to move away from when the talk becomes just pedestrian and something mentioned just because a promise had to be made to probing and getting real answers.

“It is a major way of elevating the discourse and we are happy to get the cooperation of the parties.”

A member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports and the Spokesperson of the ruling NPP on Sports, Alex Agyekum will represent the ruling party. Former Youth and Sports Minister and the NDC’s Spokesperson on Sports, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye will represent the main opposition NDC. Awudu Ishaq and Nana Afari Gyan will represent PNC and PPP respectively. The event will also air alternatively on 3FM 92.7
