Introducing Record of Change, a new podcast documenting how a pandemic twists 8 lives around the world.
Probably never before have societies and individuals around the globe had to react to a crisis that affects everyone in similar ways. While the common narrative around the pandemic is one of social distancing, emphasizing the importance to isolate from other people, our podcast will focus on the under-reported flipside: we’re all in this together. This project picks up the uniqueness of this unprecedented situation and addresses the potentials of this common ground, beyond national or cultural borders.
Record of Change documents people’s experiences during the pandemic in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America and North America. The podcast asks how they deal with the changes they have to face on essential levels: economically, emotionally, socially, ecologically.
Through the interviews listeners take a deep dive into the protagonists’ as well as the interviewers’ lives, looking at the before, during and after and documenting new developments over the span of several months as we revisit interviewees multiple times.
