Social activist Adelle Onyango is excited to be giving a presentation at a 24-hour live stream celebrating International podcast day on September 30.
Adele revealed that her presentation -7am EAT - will focus on "my experience in leaving traditional radio for podcasting."
Adding, "I will also be looking at how podcasting has given Kenyans agency over their stories. I have also prepared a video that showcases some Kenyan podcasters as well as developments that will position Kenyan podcasters on a continental stage."
Adelle has been recording and airing her series dubbed #100AfricanStories. Speaking about it she said, "I have officially recorded 100 stories so far. The stories have been physically recorded in Nairobi, Juja, Meru, Voi, Addis Ababa, Joburg, Accra, New York, Chicago, Dakar, Sharm El Sheikh. I also launched the Legally Clueless hotline for people to send in their stories and through that, I have recorded stories from audience members across the world. The stories are insightful and have really connected Africans in a magical way."
So what has been the highlight of her podcasting journey?
"Been able to connect to Africans, share my vulnerabilities and make a living off of something I have created, grown and conceptualized is paramount for me. I also find happiness in being a trailblazer in the space by my podcast getting syndicated, going on tour and more. I'm excited about what I am going to achieve through this podcast."
