From All Corners, International House, University of California, Berkeley, CA. Available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, and Spotify.
From UC Berkeley’s I-House comes the storytelling podcast From All Corners. Featuring an array of I-House residents, the project was born of the notion that powerful stories can inspire intercultural learning and make friends out of strangers. Each episode is a jolt of empathy—spotlighting true stories about the people we meet, the heartbreaks we suffer, the lessons we learn, those frightful experiences that unravel us, and the moments of wonder that shape us.
Six episodes were produced between September 2019 and February 2020. Due to Covid, in March 2020, the podcast narrowed to a series entitled Under the Dome ” to help us feel the community of being under the I-House Dome — even if we’re now in different places across the globe.” Another 17 episodes were produced through May 2020, at which point the series ended.
This podcast would make a good classroom resource for teaching about intercultural communication generally, or intercultural dialogue specifically. See KC5: Intercultural Communication or KC1: Intercultural Dialogue, as well as other Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue published by this Center.
