JacPod: South Africa's Jacaranda FM launches podcast hub

PRESS RELEASE — June 12, 2018

JacPod, recently launched by Jacaranda FM, South Africa’s biggest independent radio station, is a brand-new podcast hub which features a selection of exclusive content from a wide variety of South African Celebrities.

JacPod’s channels – available via the Jacaranda FM website - cover everything from sport to business to parenting to everyday heroes.

“JacPod is an exciting step forward in the continuous evolution of Jacaranda FM,” says the station GM Kevin Fine. “It’s a central hub of specially curated podcasts, in English and Afrikaans, for a diverse audience. We’ve launched with 6 channels and will regularly be adding new ones."

New podcast episodes will be available weekly from the likes of former Springbok Derick Hougaard; award-winning TV and radio personality Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp and Mr. himself, Brent Lindeque.

“I am so incredibly excited to be joining the Jacaranda FM family on this new platform where traditional media and digital content work together,” says Lindeque. “I think it’s an amazing opportunity to bring more awesome South African stories to life. My main goal with Good Things Guy has always been to try and change the national conversation, to help South Africans see a better side to our beautiful country, and I truly believe that the JacPod platform will completely amplify that.”

Afrika-Bredenkamp agrees: “I’m delighted my podcast series is part of the JacPod stable. I believe the stories I’m sharing in Baby Brunch, of ordinary people who persevered; parents with extraordinary stories to tell – will inspire and support all parents from all walks of life.”

Channel list:

“JacPod is part of Jacaranda FM’s ongoing commitment to delivering content that is fresh, interesting, relevant and available through a rich variety of media channels,” says Fine.
