With a new episode launching every other day until November 22, the 15-episode series has now launched across all popular podcast channels.
Finyal Media has launched the second series of Arabic podcast Juha. The new series promises to immerse listeners in unique audio adaptations of classic Arabic folklore based around the wise fool known as Juha. With a new episode launching every other day until November 22, the 15-episode series has now launched across all popular podcast channels.
The first series of Juha proved immensely popular when it launched during Ramadan 2020, with the series ranking number one on the Apple Podcast charts and garnering a loyal following across MENA.
Series two was due to launch during Ramadan 2021, but after popular demand, Juha has been released earlier than anticipated.
From among the rich heritage of classic Arabic stories that are ripe for modern adaptation, Juha’s stories have been selected for their humour. Each 10 to 15-minute episode explores a fictional story of Juha told by a narrator.
The show depicts stories of magic, secret tricks, kings and fortune-tellers with the charisma, humour and wit that listeners have come to know and love about the character of Juha.
Commenting on the new series of Juha, Mshari Alonaizy from Finyal Media said: “2020 has been a tough year all round. At Finyal Media we want to create audio stories which spark our audience’s imagination and take them to another world. Juha’s stories do just this and make sure listeners finish every single episode feeling positive and inspired. Instead of waiting to release series two, we wanted to give listeners new stories and nostalgia to bring a much-needed break from reality in the midst of the challenges brought about by the pandemic. We look forward to all Juha fans and listeners having the chance to hear more tales on such a loveable character!”
The new series is now available across all popular podcast channels, as well as the Finyal Media website.
