During these times of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of use are fatigued with the news and are so oversaturated by this point that we don’t even want to turn on the TV, radio or computer in order to actively avoid it. It’s especially hard to find a feminist angle on news during this pandemic. This is why the WAVE Office has decided to launch a weekly news podcast to strengthen and further inform our community.
We would like to introduce you to What the WAVE? Podcast!
Each week, members from the WAVE Office will provide you with feminist news that has “pinged” on our radars as well as other positive and uplifting contributions.
Come with us on this journey and listen to our first podcast.
This week the WAVE podcast was presented by the following WAVE Office members: Beverly Mtui, Youth Ambassador Coordinator; Lina Piskernik, Digital & Social Media Coordinator and Katarina Višnar, Campaign Coordinator.
