From all Corners Podcast

Postdocs 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.

New Voices for Europe Podcasts

Postdocs

New Voices for Europe: An interview series by Literature Across Frontiers, Wales, UK. Ghayath Almadhoun

New Voices for Europe is a podcast and interview series that has emerged from the Literary Europe Live Plus (LEUL+) project with which Literature Across Frontiers (LAF) continued forging links between European literary scenes and those of other regions, something they had done for fifteen years with collaborations in SWANA (South West Asian/ North African) region. This work mostly ceased as a result of the political turmoil that in turn created a vibrant artistic diaspora in Europe. LEUL+ aimed to highlight the contribution of writers and artists who had been forced to flee conflict zones and find a home in Europe, whether temporary or permanent. Interviewees were asked to tell about their journey, personal and creative, and how they continued working in their chosen discipline in an initially unfamiliar environment. What the interviews have in common is the speakers’ admirable tenacity and perseverance in the face of the obstacles and challenges they encountered along the way. Following up from a previous project entitled New Voices from Europe, which selected and promoted emerging European writers internationally, Literature Across Frontiers chose to call this collection of podcasts and interview-based articles New Voices for Europe.

LAF, the European Platform for Literary Exchange, Translation and Policy Debate, was established in 2001 with support from the then Culture Programme of the European Union. Their aim is to develop intercultural dialogue through literature and translation, and highlight less translated literatures.

How to be American: The history of immigration and migration from Apple Podcasts

These American stories are not in your standard history book. History tends to be reduced to key moments and celebrated names, and what’s often overlooked are the stories of the ordinary people, both past and present, who have lived through journeys of immigration and migration…the people who have shaped what it means to be and to become American. How To Be American is a podcast by the Tenement Museum where from New York’s Lower East Side, we explore the history of immigration and migration in America. We share the stories of migrants and refugees, and everyone in-between. And we examine why so many important events in our history have unfolded around issues of immigration and national identity. This is the past, present, and future of becoming American.
