Navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic profoundly transformed Ameni and Emna, redefining their habits, mental health, and perception of vulnerability to illness.

Faced with isolation, they explored solitude and introspection, leading them to reassess the nature of their relationships and engage in reflections they had never taken the time for before. Lockdown provided fertile ground to discover and rediscover friends, bringing hearts and minds closer through deeper and more meaningful exchanges.

This period also highlighted the importance of time and its elastic nature, prompting them to question their priorities, especially professional ones, and to redefine their relationships through the prism of forgiveness and rediscovery of family ties.

The crisis also shed light on privileges and inequalities, challenging professional practices during lockdown, and highlighting the failures of public services.

In this fourth episode of “Andek Swi3a?” (Got a Moment?), they share how COVID-19 has influenced their perceptions, enriching their resilience and empathy. It’s also a story about how the pandemic has shaped their view of community in a transformed world.

This episode's song: Amir Eid - Youm Gedid

Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab.
Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert.
Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience.
Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process.
In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity.
These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand.
Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
