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

Behind The Mic

Habib Ehmad

Owner / Show Host

Born in Lahore, Pakistan, Habib and his family moved to the U.S. when he was 6 years old. He grew up primarily in New York and Connecticut. After completing his Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems in 2012, he moved to California for a full-time job, and lived in San Diego and San Jose for a few years. He then moved to Dallas, Texas and lived there for 4 years. Habib married his wife Shereen in 2018. 

As of 2019, Habib and his wife both live in Boston. Habib has a day job working in Data Analytics & Strategy in the healthcare industry. 

The idea of the Pakcord podcast came across Habib around July 2018 – and was subsequently followed by the release of the first episode in September, 2018. Habib started the podcast to promote more voices from the global Pakistani community and bring together the Pakistani diaspora. 

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!
