HypheNation: a podcast about habesha disapora life

img_5696I don’t know about you, but I like the sound of my own voice. I think this puts me among the minority. Oh well, I’m already deep in that category so what’s one more qualification? And when my voice comes wrapped up in a podcast, even better! And when said podcast is a collaboration between my fellow blogger & cousin Serksalem and myself, and is about the many joys and challenges of diaspora habesha life, double better! I am happy to announce this newest podcast on the block: HypheNation: A Diaspora Life!

You can listen to episodes right here at the bottom of this page, on our podcast website or on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, or on the Podcast app & stay tuned for new episodes, but not too tuned! Serksalem and I have lives after all (our Instagrams say so), so new episodes will be appearing…sporadically! (Hey it’s not “uff typical habesha” if we gave you fair warning!)

We came across this New Yorker cartoon while we were in the very lengthy and ultra relaxed process of creating this podcast. I like to think that with the launch of HypeNation, we are stopping the lack of podcasts that explore matters that matter to the global habesha diaspora.
