What is Pakcord?

Pakcord is a new podcast (modern radio show) focused on the young Pakistani community across the world (the Pakistani diaspora). Our format: each episode, we invite a new guest (or multiple guests) to discuss a topic or tell a story that relates our shared connection to Pakistan!

Topics can be as serious as discussing potential medical risks of cousin marriage, or as light-hearted as “why do Pakistanis love Ludo so much?”

An average episode is about 30 minutes to 60 minutes in length – perfect for listening while you drive, take the bus, work out, or play video games. Most episodes are primarily in English since our listeners are worldwide, but we often throw in a lot of Urdu!

Where can I listen?

You can listen to the podcast right on the website, of course, but we recommend using the following podcast listening apps:

  • iPhones: Apple Podcasts
  • Android: Google Podcasts
  • PC: Soundcloud or Pakcord.com
