EstoCast is Growing and Evolving!

With the leaves changing colour and the air getting that colder twinge, EstoCast has jumped into the fall season with tons of momentum, offering discussions on a wide variety of captivating topics for our listeners. If you’re just tuning in for the first time or don’t know about this endeavour, EstoCast is ideal for those who are simply curious about a multitude of topics and are in search of something fresh, exciting, inspiring, and educational to listen to. If you’ve ever wanted the latest of Estonian books, music, art, history, science, and other key news and cultural topics, but in a convenient on-the-go format, EstoCast is perfect for you. Estonian Music Week, Eesti Elu/Estonian Life newspaper, and VEMU continue to collaborate and bring you the latest on everything Estonian and beyond in our biweekly episodes. Our episodes alternate between English and Estonian so that we can reach out to each and every one of you. The title mentions evolving.. so how has EstoCast evolved? We continue to grow our listener base steadily every month and have begun to branch out more into other communities as well, once in a while we hear or see a comment from someone with a completely different cultural background who has found our podcast, singing praises of how captivating our topics are and how much we have to offer. We’ve also evolved and grown in what we have to offer to our listeners and helping promote community events, often having lecturers, musicians, politicians, who have an upcoming event, in our studio to introduce them to our local Estonian community and to our listeners. Our podcast is over a year and a half old and we’re getting ready to close out our second season at the conclusion of this year; we’re not showing any signs of slowing down! We continue to experiment with our new recording technology and strive to continually improve recording quality and auditory experience. The fall months have brought a slew of new topics to offer, from world travel to marathoning and fascinating, behind-the-scenes looks into what its like to be a professional athlete and coach. We continue to expand our range of topics!
