Adventists in the South Pacific can now listen to their news on Adventist Record’s new podcast, Record Wrap. Launched on March 12, the digest podcast brings the week’s main headlines from across the South Pacific Division (SPD) and the world in a format that can be accessed “on the go.” 

News editor Juliana Muniz explained that the podcast complements Record’s existing news platforms. “We’re always exploring new and effective ways to keep our Adventist community informed and connected. Record Wrap complements our existing news channels — print magazine, website, and weekly email newsletter — by offering an audio option for consuming news. It’s designed for our busy lives, enabling our audience to stay updated and feel closer to our church family, wherever they are.”

Hosted by Muniz, alongside a rotating cast of the Record team, each episode also features an interview that provides deeper insights into the main story of the week. “Record Wrap gives us the opportunity to hear from all the different people directly involved in projects from all corners of our division,” Muniz added.

Record launched its first podcast in July 2023 with the Record Live Podcast — an audio version of the weekly livestream conversation in which editor Jarrod Stackelroth and Signs of the Times associate editor Zanita Fletcher talk about articles that have been in the magazine and interview special guests from areas including theology and social issues. 

Adventist Record is always looking for ways to connect new demographics of people to conversations the church is having. While the print magazine is still a valuable asset, not everyone accesses information through that medium,” Stackelroth said. “Our podcasts give people who prefer to get their information audibly a chance to connect and help to future proof the ministry by exploring new areas of connectivity with church members and others. We are trying to be in different spaces and places to better serve the whole SPD with Adventist news and views.”

The original version of this story was posted by Adventist Record. Record Wrap episodes are released each Tuesday and are available on many popular podcast platforms. The Record Live podcast becomes available each Friday, and Record Live can be viewed live on Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m. AEST on Adventist Record’s YouTubeX, or Facebook accounts.
