More Queer Podcasts: I’m Doing Fine and 6 Light Rainbow

:
I introduced QueerCast back in October, but since then have found a bunch of LGBT podcasts. Ranging from talks about queer history and LGBT rights to podcasts that sound more like listening to a bunch of your friends chatting, like 별일없이산다 (I’m Doing Fine), if for nothing else they make for great listening practice. I’d be lying if I said that I understand everything that is going on, but every once in a while I have a great aha! moment.

I’ve particularly enjoyed  여섯 빛깔 무지게 (6 Light Rainbow). The podcast, with the support of the Incheon Cultural Foundation, brings in human rights activists, translators, film directors, etc to talk about queer related issues. In the first episode, translator 조동섭 (who has translated Brokeback Mountain as well as other queer-related books into Korean) and host 이정우 talk a great deal on the evolution of Jongno and other queer areas of Seoul since the 1980s.

To explore other podcasts, just try typing 퀴어(queer) or 게이(gay) into the search box over at podbbang and you are sure to find something new to listen to.
