What is Pakcord?
Pakcord is a new podcast focused on the young Pakistani community across the world (the Pakistani diaspora). Our format: every episode, we invite a new guest (or multiple guests!) to talk about a topic, tell a story, or anything else that relates to 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, and of course, some episodes are almost completely in Urdu too!
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:

Join Thousands of Listeners Worldwide
In every episode, we bring a different guest from the previous. One of our goals is to illustrate the sheer diversity within the Pakistani diaspora — our lifestyles, thoughts, and opinions are not homogeneous! We don’t all talk about just religion and politics all the time, there’s so much more to be discussed around our communities!
