Jasadi - A Revolutionary Podcast: By Arab Women, For Arab Women

PRESS RELEASE · دبي, 39205, الإمارات العربية المتحدة ·

Two pioneering Arab brands, Kerning Cultures Network and Mauj, are joining forces to create a groundbreaking Arabic podcast, Jasadi (meaning “My Body” in Arabic). This series shares the real experiences of women, from painful tragedies to glorious pleasures, across the Middle East and North Africa.

We believe this podcast, made by Arab women for Arab women, is a revolutionary act unprecedented in the MENA podcast space, making it newsworthy and timely to your audiences. We hope you choose to highlight our work and look forward to hearing from you.

Kerning Cultures Network is a leading podcast network in the Middle East and North Africa, producing Jasadi alongside 12 other chart-topping Arabic and English podcasts. Their podcast, Bhob (meaning ‘with love’ in Arabic), was chosen as Apple Podcasts’ Show of the Year in 2020 in the Arab world.

Mauj is the first sexual and reproductive wellness brand for and by Arab women working to destigmatize and normalize female bodies and sexuality. Mauj is also the brand behind Deem, the first vibrator created specifically with Arab women in mind.

Jasadi features anonymous true stories read by female actors (a la Modern Love podcast). These cover first hand accounts of the pains of pregnancy, female genital mutilations, orgasms, sexual harassment, miscarriage, and more. The series is narrated by Syrian journalist Alma Antabli. Speaking about this third Jasadi season, Mauj’s founders said, “There is deep wisdom in women’s shared experiences. Our collective pain, suffering, pleasure, and joy should be more openly talked about, normalized, and celebrated. When these topics go unspoken of, it’s women who are the most vulnerable and at risk of violence and exploitation.”

Jasadi episodes drop every Thursday. You can listen to Jasadi on platforms like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or any other streaming platform.
