Accra, Friday 18th September 2020 – Oral Storytelling has always been a part of our cultural set up.
They were mostly driven by radio, but with the marked increase in popularity of audio-on-demand format known as podcasts it goes to say the world has opened to taboo and even risqué subjects.
Undeniably, it is hard to meet your partner at the bar, art gallery, party, or even at the church than they make it look like in romcoms. Online is the commonest place people are looking for companionship, love, sex, and everything in between. Despite this, people are still very uncomfortable admitting they met someone online; especially on dating apps. No matter the app, they’re more comfortable saying they slid into someone’s DM.
Check Your DM brings you real stories of how people are navigating the complexities of online dating and sex culture in this digital age. “Hosting Check Your DM means I get to be a part of conversations on online dating and finding companionship, which also helps me understand my path as well as be a source of information for other people searching for answers.” – Fui Can–Tamaklo
Podcasts are perfect content for millennial who are known for their fickle attitude towards content consumption, and if we’re being honest, towards everything else; including their preferred online dating app.
This show is refreshing, honest, entertaining, and admittedly bold. It demystifies the myth surrounding online dating in this social age without trying. “for me this means opening up a pathway for others to talk about their dating mishaps. There is healing in knowing you’re not alone in various situations. CYDM gives me the opportunity to provide solidarity to all who need it” – Helen Appiah – Ampofo.
