Migration Patterns: Interviewees Needed for New Podcast

Interviewees Needed for Migration Patterns Podcast

I have some exciting news – I’ve been quietly working on creating an interview podcast!

It’s called Migration Patterns and my goal is to share stories of recent immigrants and new Canadians.

My aim for the podcast is to talk about the movement of people across the world and what takes us to our destination, and in this case, Canada. Immigration is needed in our nation and it is sometimes misunderstood. I hope by listening to stories that are different from our own, we will create new understanding about each other, find commonalities, and create new opportunities. The podcast does not aim to have political debate but to share the immigration experience.

So, I’m putting the call out into the interwebs!

Here are the details. Please, please, pleeeeeease share this blog post with any people you know whose story you would like to hear on a podcast. Or, if you are game and know your story is dope, sign up! Feel free to contact me on social media or email if you have further questions before signing up.

Who? Recent immigrants to Canada and New Canadians (in the last 5 years) who are willing to talk about their experience coming here, what special skills that they have brought with them, and to teach us a bit about their home.

What? A 30 minute podcast series where I interview recent immigrants to Edmonton who have a story to tell.

When? I’m aiming for 6 interviews to be done this winter/spring, that will then be edited and released as a bi-weekly series.

Where? Interviews to take place in Edmonton, Alberta. My plan is to have the podcast available on iTunes, GooglePlay and on my blog.
