Kōrero podcast celebrates Māori culture

Kōrero, a New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) educational podcast celebrating the richness and diversity of Māori culture in Aotearoa has launched, presented by Māori creatives Luke Bird, an award-winning New Zealand
vocalist, Marcia Hopa, a fluent te reo Māori speaker with a background in radio, television, and teaching, and Phoenix Ruka, a Whangārei District councillor, TikTok personality and advocate for youth mental health.

The podcast will provide listeners with powerful conversations covering everything from sexuality to te reo Māori and current affairs over 10 weekly episodes. Each episode also introduces a new Māori language segment, giving Kiwis an opportunity to engage in te reo Māori conversation, as well as special guests.

Luke Bird said:

“Kōrero, meaning conversation or discussion in te reo Māori is the heart of the podcast. Kōrero is more than just a podcast; it’s a platform for embracing inclusiveness, tackling everyday issues, and celebrating the essence of Māori life.

This podcast creates a space where our voices are heard, our stories are shared, and our culture is celebrated. Whether you’re a fluent te reo Māori speaker or just starting your journey, Kōrero welcomes everyone to join the conversation and learn more about our beautiful language and heritage.”

New episodes of Kōrero are available every Wednesday on iHeartRadio or wherever you get your podcasts.
