Podcast “Jan & Christina” by Katinka Baehr online


Sunday, March 8, ± 10pm CET, the podcast “Jan & Christina” (Dutch spoken) went online. In three episodes, Katinka Baehr (NTR/VPRO) is following Jan Banning as he is trying to contribute to the release of Christina Boyer, an American woman who has been wrongfully detained in Pulaski Women’s Prison in Georgia (USA) for almost 28 years for supposedly murdering her three-year-old daughter Amber. Also, he is working – with contributions from Christina – on a book and an exhibition about her history (to be published and shown in 2021).

In less than 24 hours, “Jan & Christina” got to #1 on the list of most popular podcasts in the Netherlands. Two days later, it also got to the top of the Belgian list.

A few first reactions (all in Dutch, obviously):

Arno Peeters, sound editor of the podcast: “Lieve Luisteraars: ik kan als eerste getuigen van de schoonheid van deze podcast over de tomeloze inzet van Jan Banning om Christina Boyer gerechtigheid te bezorgen, want zojuist de laatste edits van aflevering 3 voltooid.

Koen Fillet (interviewer @ Interne Keuken, Belgian (VRT) Radio 1: “Bekentenisje: ik zat daarnet met de tranen in mijn ogen. Dat komt zo: ik ben me aan het voorbereiden op de komst van Jan Banning naar #InterneKeuken, morgen. Van zijn verhaal is een podcast gemaakt die pas zondag online komt, maar die ik al mocht beluisteren. Aangrijpend. 
Of ik ben een watje, dat kan ook.”
