Ghana’s budding podcasting industry saw the inception of one that took many patrons by the surprise dubbed, The Millennial Street Podcast back in August 2020.
The culture and society-based audio series has, since then, produced content that has thrilled its ever-growing audience with topics from trending developments to relevant thought-provoking conversations that tickle the fancy of a vibrant youth – from Millennials to Generation Zs and boomers alike.
In the final episode of its derby season, hosts Nassy and Kenny threw light on issues surrounding the official opening of an office for the LGBTQI+ community in Accra.
Premiered on Tuesday, March 2, the episode encapsulates all key arguments by key actors from the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values, LGBTQ+ Rights Ghana, Amnesty International, President Akufo-Addo among others.
It further probes the development way down to the eventual closure of the office by National Security Operative in the company of the landlord.
The week under review also saw the unfortunate death of the photographer, Emmanuel Bobbie popularly known as Bob Pixel.
Mentees such as Sammy Moore, Nene Azu Jr among other Ghanaians shared their fondest memory of the genius via this 43-minute programme.
As Season 1 of the Millennial Street podcast draws to a close, some avid listeners are already salivating over the prospects of what has been a tremendous 5 months of intriguing content.
In an age where conversations on sex have taken up majority of the podcast space, a light-hearted, fun , insightful, intellectual conversation like the MILLENIAL STREET PODCAST deserves more attention… *Sigh*

I’m not an ardent podcast person but @MillenialStreet is definitely one I’ve been stuck to since it’s inception.

Meanwhile, a few of the most coveted episodes of the podcast’s first season include the October 20 edition which focused on the #EndSARS movement on Nigeria.
Another fascinating episode was the ‘A T’adi girl’s love for Kinaata, VGMAs & Afriyie’s (Wutah) wise words not forgetting Shatta Wale’s takeover of comedy during the tension that followed Ghana’s December 7 election.
However, in what seemed like an emotional goodbye [until it was interrupted by an outburst of laughter in the end] to a derby season, podcast hosts expressed appreciation to all who made the digital experience a success and promise an even more thrilling and surprise-filled season two.
And with the advent of streaming services such as Spotify in Ghana, the prospects can only get better.
The Millennial Street Podcast is currently available on Anchor, Google Podcasts, Apple Music, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Breaker, Radio Public and wherever you get your podcast.
