Several people forwarded the recent episode of the Invisibilia podcast to me about Somalia’s ‘American’ Idol spinoff. Thank you! I didn’t know the new season had launched but love the show. You didn’t want me to miss it and you wanted to hear my thoughts on it.
Here are my thoughts. I talked them out, experimenting with some audio.
They are about:
Normalizing certain narratives
Putting an appropriate spin on stories
Having realistic goals
How much I love Somali music
Think of this as a mini Djibouti Jones podcast episode.
I got interrupted several times and did a grand zero seconds of editing, so you get the raw me, bumbling around with some ideas and some words that just keep coming out my mouth for six minutes.
