My Podcast Picks: Samjhana RijalRijal is a board member of Blind Rocks, a non-profit organisation working to empower blind individuals, and is actively involved in Chain For Change. She works to make experiences more accessible for visually impaired individuals.
I highly suggest giving Disability Visibility a listen! It is a great gateway to learning about disability rights, social justice, and intersectionality. Even though it's not currently producing new episodes, there are 100 episodes hosted by Alice Wong that provide a unique perspective on life through the lens of disability.
On Air with Sanjay
From people at the grassroots level and up-and-coming professionals in different fields to well-known personalities, we get to hear perspectives from all these individuals through Sanjay Silwal Gupta’s podcast. It’s a great way to connect with people from different walks of life.
I came across Harka’s podcast through Facebook reels. It is hosted by Harka Lopchan and Anup Tamang, based in Dubai. I like how this podcast brings stories from across the globe—especially about the journeys of individuals of Nepali origin who are making a name for themselves in foreign countries.
Samaya Bhitra ko Samaya
Babita Basnet’s podcast Samaya Bhitra ko Samaya discusses historical figures and those connected to the royal family. It helped me understand the prevalent culture and lifestyle during the monarchy. Listening to this podcast feels like revisiting history. The episodes on Lalita Niwas in particular are very informative.
