FOLLOWING THE launch of our new monthly newspaper, we are pleased to announce a new podcast series hosted by acclaimed journalist and regular contributor Dotun Adebayo.

The podcast, entitled Once Upon A Time When We Were Coloured, will launch Wednesday 2 October on Soundcloud and The Voice Online, and will cover a range of subjects whilst exploring life for black Britons in the UK from past, present and hopes for the future.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Adebayo said: “We can speak for England. We know that. We’ve always known that, yet once upon a time when we were ‘coloured’ England didn’t want people of colour to speak for it.

“With the new monthly edition of The Voice and the new website, you can now see and hear some of our greatest critical thinkers discussing the hottest topics of today on my brand new weekly podcast Once Upon A Time When We Were Coloured. Expect the unexpected.”

This will be followed by another podcast which will launch at a later date, entitled Black History NOW. The podcast will highlight key figures in black culture who are making history today.

Paula Dyke, Senior Manager, Corporate Affairs said: “We are delighted to launch our new podcast series to share perspectives on a range of topics that are important to our readers.

“As Britain’s only black national newspaper, we will use our platforms to campaign on issues that make a difference – and our podcast series is an important channel to ensure we can do this effectively”.

The Dotun Adebayo Podcast launches Wednesday 2 October.
