Czech Radio Wave launched five pop-up formats for young audiences
Czech Radio Wave launched five pop-up formats for young audiences that are mapping the quarantine days of various moderators.
„Samotka“ (Confinement) is the first pop-up podcast of Czech Radio Wave launched as a response to the current situation. It is a space for listener’s messages and feelings during the Covid-19 pandemic. “Tell us how you are and don't be alone”. Listeners can record and send an audio in a minute regarding what they are thinking about during their quarantine, what annoys then, what they are afraid of, i. e. audio sharing of joys, worries, experiences. Famous young personalities (influencers, musicians, actors, scientists) are also involved in the format. Jan Vojtko, a therapist, responds then to the sent audios. The first part was published on March 21.
"Karanténa Zuzany Fuksové" (Quarantine of Zuzana Fuksová) is an audio diary of Zuzana Fuksová, one of Radio Wave moderators from her self-isolation at the cottage in Czech countryside. “Fourth day in the countryside. We thought we had food for at least two weeks, but the girls had eaten goodies like ham and chocolate today. Tuesday evening was marked by binge-watching of charts and coronavirus information. The idea that the development will be similar, if not worse than in Italy, concerned me and despite the recommendations during the epidemic to abstain, we narrowed down a bit the stock of plum brandy as a disinfectant.” More can found here (in Czech language)
“Brambora s vejcem”(Potato with Egg) is an entertaining daily phone calls from moderator Ivana Veselková (known from other successful formats such as Buchty or Mikrovlnky) and Aleš Stuchlý (moderator of Čelisti talkshow) with celebrities and famous Czechs on the current situation.
