EPISODE 8

The secrets of the faubourg

The world of the zoufris is a distinct world, with its own rules and regulartions... It is the extension of a latent suffering in which historically and geographically marginalised groups have participated, a voice that manifests rejection... The rejection of domestication within the conventional mould, and the culture of the masses that does not tolerate being different.
EPISODE 7

What the elders used to say

If proverbs are a way to understand a culture, what are the images that are conveyed in Tunisian ones? How do they deal with specific subjects that reveal the social representations of the past, and still influence individuals today? 
EPISODE 6

From Kerkennah to Djerba, with beating drums

Whether in Kerkennah or Djerba, the rhythms are quite similar: they are airy and jerky, with a perpetual back and forth. The Zokra (flute) and the Tbal (drum) are the most prominent instruments of the Tunisian islands.

Once upon a time, the question of being human...

I dance, I exist

To the rhythm of the Bounouara and the Fezzani, we set off on a journey in which we explore the stories told by the bodies of women and men throughout the generations. What is Tunisian folk dance? Can it be limited to its labels and definitions?What does this spontaneous, natural expression tell us, as it weaves its narrating fabric of temporal and geographical accumulations, as well as cultural, social, economic and political introspection?
EPISODE 3

The "green" erotic poetry

The so-called "green" erotic poetry is one of the poetic forms, which, due to its strong presence throughout Tunisia as well as a lack of documentation, reveals extraordinary paradoxes. Through the stories of "cursed" poets, this episode explores the eternal conflict between censorship and freedom.
EPISODE 2

Stambeli: In search of the origins

There are many myths surrounding Stambeli, a sound that is sometimes disturbing due to its rhythms, codes and mystical trances. In this episode, Rabeb Srairi plunges us into the universe of this music, with its multiple identities. Interspersed with contributions from specialists in the field, this episode takes us to the doorstep of Dar Barnou, one of the six Stambeli houses in Tunisia.
EPISODE 1

El Borrache: The Songs of Women

El Borrache: is it just a form of cultural heritage, spontaneously transmitted between women? Or is it a way to reappropriate an expression of freedom that had been hijacked by male culture? This podcast explores an artistic cultural expression, praciticed by women in the southern and western regions of Tunisia. An expression deeply rooted in the history of the country and its geographical scope.

The Reconstruction

Those who have been closely involved with the Project claim that the President changed after July 25, more specifically after being - in their words - "betrayed". Indeed, they believe that Hichem El Mechichi subjected Kais Saied to "great disloyalty" whilst he presided over the government.

The road to Democracy

Despite acknowledging the importance of a national consultation, the low participation rate was an embarrassment to Kais Saied. Along with some of his supporters, Saied confronted this critical situation by blaming the media and unknown third parties for the low turnout.

Two flew over the swallow's nest

"The first time you walk in there, you don't understand anything," Omar describes. In this episode, Rania and Omar tell us about the circumstances of their admission to the Razi psychiatric hospital, their impressions, and their interactions with the patients and medical staff. Their voices, like memory books, plunge us into the heart of this institution and their daily lives.

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.

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.
