We are the most diverse team in international media: We trace our origins back to Iran, Mexico, India, Haiti, Ivory Coast and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, among others. We all live in Washington and work in different sections of the Voice of America. We like to chat amongst ourselves - and with other smart people - about international sports, pop culture, entertainment and current events.

Robert D., Rohit Kulkarni, Ramon C. Taylor, Roger Muntu and France Houessou and their friends now bring you Independence West, VOA's newest and hippest online show! They're inviting you to join the ride. In coming weeks and months, they'll be talking, among other things, about cricket's Indian Premier League; the World Athletics championships; the new "Star Trek: Into Darkness" movie; the German and Australian general elections; the Australian "AFL Grand Final" football match; Hong Kong gangstger movies; street food culture; and, of course, the Champions' League Final in late May at Wembley Stadium, London.

So here we are now, launching ID West. Listen to us on this site every week and join the the conversation on Facebook.
