Azad Lab (Free To Speak) is a show that discusses issues that are often sidelined by the mainstream but that cause much disruption and anxiety among young people. Episode producer Naazneen, a 21 year old college going girl from Palla, a migrant slum colony in Delhi is vocal about issues revolving and concerning young people like her. This is her second attempt in creating a podcast on the relationships between young people and their parents.
Episode 15: Parents should be friends to their children.
Host Nazneen talks about why it is important for parents to give their children a friendly environment at home so that children can express their concerns and issues to their parents without any hesitation.
Azad Lab is one of 6 shows produced as part of the Free/Dem Community Podcasts, the online avatar of the FreeDem WhatsApp Radio run by community members of Tajpur Pahari and other urban slums in and around Delhi. The shows are built around ideas of gender equity, love, freedom of expression, human rights and justice. Through the podcasts, community members discuss as well as share their lived realities. They are produced under Ideosync’s FREE/DEM initiative, which provides marginalised communities - especially women and migrants - Digital Media and Information Trainings and a platform to amplify their narratives and stories using audio and video.
