Indigenous led podcast network BlakCast has launched in partnership with ARN’s iHeart giving a platform to stories of First Nations Peoples and people of colour.
Featured podcasts include Black Magic Woman, Yarning Up, Curtain the Podcast, Unapologetically Blak, Meet the Mob and Coming Out Blak.
Host of Black Magic Woman and driving force behind BlakCast, Mundanara Bayles said:
“BlakCast is paving the way for a brighter, more inclusive future where all voices are heard, and the stories of the First Nations peoples are celebrated. Through diverse storytelling, we seek to foster a deeper connection to the rich tapestry of our nation’s history and culture for audiences and content makers alike.”
Head of Digital Audio Corey Layton added:
“We’re proud to support Mundanara as she builds on her family legacy in broadcast, guiding, amplifying, and monetising a large array of Australia’s best Indigenous podcasts. This presents an exciting evolution in the iHeart network which we’re committed to grow”.
Also involved in the platform is producer and long-time family friend of Bayles, Clint Curtis, and Network Advisor Jamila Rizvi.
