Rotary Club of Theni Metro Kings, RID 3000, recently launched Planet Rotary, a podcast series to talk about Rotary and its many worthwhile causes. The idea was conceived by club president Narmadha Vijayakumar. She, along with her husband Rtn A R Vijayakumar, have hosted two episodes so far.
A podcast is a recording of audio discussion on a specific topic and often uploaded on apps such as Spotify, Anchor and iTunes. “This dynamic medium is a perfect way to humanise our relationship with each other and propagate ideas. This means, sitting in Theni we can talk about our Happy School project while someone sitting in Toronto could be listening to the podcast figuring out ways to executing something similar,” says Narmadha.
The club’s podcast had a virtual inauguration with DG A L Chokkalingam, DGN I Jerald and PDG Dr Zameer Pasha logging in. ARRFC P Gopalakrishnan released the Planet Rotary logo. The first episode — Who is a Rotarian – was released by PDG R V N Kannan and the second one has Rtn Raja Govindasamy sharing his experiences as a beneficiary of Rotary’s Graduate Fellowship Programme which supported his higher studies at the Ohio University in the US.
