Eric Nam launches "Kpop Daebak" podcast



After tweeting "should I do a podcast" on March 31, Eric Nam has launched his own kpop podcast. Kpop Daebak is a show about the latest kpop releases each week, plus tidbits about working in the industry from Eric. There are also corresponding Youtube and Spotify playlists so listeners can check out the songs discussed in each episode.

The show started on April 8 and so far only has 3 episodes, but Eric has mentioned wanting to bring on celebrity guests in the future.

You can listen to the podcast on iTunes or your preferred podcast app.

I think it's fairly entertaining so far; not sure how he'd handle bringing guests on in a podcast medium since not all of them would speak English (one of the guests he mentioned was JooE for example.) Maybe upload the audio on youtube and subtitle it? idk

I've heard radio shows with non-English speaking guests, they usually just have someone translate after they speak.

I was thinking of that as a possibility but idk how much might get lost in translation if something had to be summarized, especially if it was a long interview/convo. It could work tho

To add to the above, DJs of Arirang radio shows like Sam of Lunafly, Ashley of Ladies Code and Lex of Bigflo usually act as both hosts and interpreters. They would translate roughly what the non-English speaking guests say during talks, but of course things have to be summarized and the double duty of interviewing and then translating it can be complicated.

Hm I want to check it out but I feel like it will be super sanitized/bland so as not to piss off fans
