PODCASTS FOR ALL
Fans of crime stories can tune into True Crimes to explore some of Singapore’s most gripping unsolved mysteries from the 1970s and 1980s, while those looking to be well and truly spooked will enjoy Misteri Jam 12, Ria 897 radio DJ Saffwan Shah’s hugely popular podcast about the paranormal, as well as LOVE 972 radio DJ Dennis Chew's weekly Friday night segment Zhou's Ghost Stories.
There's also the Makan Kakis with Denise Tan podcast, perfect for determined foodies in their never-ending search for the best eats in Singapore. This podcast from GOLD 905 radio DJ Denise Tan not only offers hawker recommendations, but also features chats with Singapore culinary personalities and F&B entrepreneurs.
For those looking for a no-holds barred take on sensitive and intimate topics, Hush Podcast – which features radio DJs Germaine Tan, Hazelle Teo and Azura Goh – will explore relationships, health and wellness issues that some may be too shy to discuss openly.
The enhanced meLISTEN also offers greater user personalisation with content recommendations, curated music playlists to suit different tastes and preferences, a quick-play function to connect with their favourite radio stations, and seamless playbacks of podcasts across multiple devices.
New intuitive features include a dashboard display giving listeners an overview of what is playing on each radio station at any particular time to help them decide which station to listen to, user-friendly buttons to make switching between stations more easy and an updated “Happenings” page giving the latest traffic updates, plus information on each station’s activities, quizzes, polls and trivia – all to create a more interactive experience.
