The New World Kirtan podcast, hosted and produced by Kitzie Stern, has been online since December 2008. The podcast started as service to the Corvallis kirtan community, a group which at the time consisted of 5 people and chanted to CDs.
Back in 2008 social media was a brave new world, and the podcast was originally an experiment. It started as the set list from the Corvallis weekly kirtan satsang, introduced by Kitzie and promoted on Facebook, Twitter and listed on iTunes. Today the podcast has a devoted following and New World Kirtan has become an influencer in the exploding world of devotional chant.
