On the radio station RRR this morning, I heard Daz Chandler talking about the Radio Lajee website. Here’s how the website describes itself:

www.radiolajee.com is the home of an exciting new series of podcasts by Palestinian refugees aged between 11 and 22 years.

Established by Australian new media enthusiast, Daz Chandler, in collaboration with the Lajee Centre, the independent project aims to provide the refugee youth with the skills necessary to create a weekly, English language podcast.

I really like the fact that there are, together with more directly political podcasts, non-political ones such as ‘Amal’s Kitchen,’ where you can learn to cook Palestinian food. I really want to try out one of the recipes.
