The Bishkek Diaries | Episode One: Buckling up in Bishkek | Audio/Podcast Series
Step into my inner world as a South African citizen relocating to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. A city that can only exist (for me) somewhere between reality, imagination, and sound. The Bishkek Diaries podcast is Kyrgyzstan’s first narrative audio documentary podcast guided by existential themes, and playful audio encounters with spaces, voices, and sounds in this post-Soviet city of Bishkek. Season One explores themes of transit, borders, identity, access, and belonging. "Buckling Up in Bishkek" follows my transit into Kyrgyzstan and explores the topic of seatbelts from the backseat of a Yandex taxi.
