Barbadians with a passion and enthusiasm for pop-culture and entertainment, especially that of Barbadian origin, will soon have a locally produced series that caters to their interests when “ZEITGEIST!” premieres on CBC TV 8 on October 12th at 8:30 PM.

The weekly, half-hour series discusses and examines Barbadian –  and some international – pop-culture and entertainment. It will explore the areas of film and music and features interviews with talented young Barbadians working in the creative industries.

Hosted by Josué Nelson (the creator and host of the Bus Stop Nerds podcast) and Kofi Jones (professional DJ and host of both the INO Podcast and Gine On?! Magazine’s Top Ten Talk), the series will include reviews of Barbadian films, retrospectives of classic Barbadian music, genre breakdowns, biographies of legends in Barbadian music, top five lists, and more.

Produced by K.F. Cumberbatch – the creator of the local cosplay documentary Cosplay Pride & Industry – ZEITGEIST! (sounds like “right guy”) is a spin-off of Zeitgeist Entertainment Magazine, an online publication which Cumberbatch started in 2016 after completing her studies at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, where she studied Film.

“I started developing ZEITGEIST! at the very end of 2018 and it’s been a long and exhausting, but rewarding, journey.” Cumberbatch said. “It delves into the pop-culture that exists in Barbados much in the same way that you see international pop-culture being dissected. Barbados doesn’t have as extensive a library of creative works as, say, the United States, Europe, or Japan, obviously. But I think we can still produce this kind of content for what we do have.”

In the week following an episode’s broadcast, its segments will be uploaded individually to YouTube. You can find more pop-culture content on www.zgemag.com and follow the series on Facebook and Instagram at the handle @zgemag.

This project is made possible in part by the Cultural Industries Development Fund of the National Cultural Foundation of Barbados.
