“Latitude on Air” was conceived in June 2020 as an accompanying radio programme for the online festival LATITUDE. Over four days, experts, artists and activists explored the festival's themes, embedded in the larger framework of global dialogue on colonial power relations, their consequences and how to overcome them. As a follow-up to this successful cooperation, the idea was born to develop a monthly radio programme together with the Goethe-Institut and the Radionetzwerk Berlin (along with  reboot.fm , cashmere radio, SAVVYZAAR and WEAREBORNFREE! Empowerment Radio).

The two-hour programme offers the opportunity to present current topics and discourses in a detailed form in radio format and thus to illuminate the themes of the online magazine Latitude with in-depth radio features. The programme is divided into two parts; a first, approximately half-hour magazine segment offers interview clips, short features and current thematic anchors, while the second segment allows longer programmes for more experimental formats, in which the programme's main topics can be presented with greater thoroughness and impact.

The programme will reach its audience via several distribution channels. On the one hand via the Radio Netzwerk Berlin's VHF frequency from Friday, 6 a.m. to Sunday midnight, on 88.4 Mhz in Berlin and on 90.7 Mhz in Potsdam. At the same time, however, it will also be accessible via the partner stations' online stream and the Latitude website: on Friday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
