Truth to Power is a podcast dedicated to rap around the globe. In each episode I interview a guest speaker who focuses on a different topic, place or artist, to foreground the unique power of rap to challenge systems of power.

The podcast was aired in 2021 at RaBe (Radio Bern). You can find the dates here:

Here We Are - Lessons Learned is a podcast that came out of a series of workshops conducted by artlink in collaboration with artists with migration experience in Switzerland.

In 5 episodes, numerous artists tell about the challenges they have faced, the need to think inclusivity and diversity more thoroughly in institutions, and the potential for new formats in the future on the level of support for the arts in Swizterland. I produced and edited the podcast episodes, narrated in German and in English.
