About me

 

Jasmin Bauomy is an award-winning multimedia journalist with about a decade of experience in editorial professions. She helped launch Al Jazeera English’s (AJE) first news and current affairs podcast, The Debrief, as a host and producer.

 

She then went on to be a senior podcast producer at Jetty – AJE’s podcasting wing. Her work on the war in Yemen and skin color politics in South Sudan for the Jetty podcast The Take was nominated, longlisted, and has won multiple awards.

 

Up until September 2022, Jasmin spent most of her time as Head of Creative Audio at the edutainment app Blinkist, where she co-lead a team of award-winning audio producers and shaped the production and style of the end product. She also consults and produces podcasts for clients, such as Spotify Germany and a German public broadcaster. 

Jasmin has become known for her ability to distill complex news stories into accessible articles, audio, and video formats.

Interests

I'm happiest behind a camera. So, when I'm not working and we're not dealing with a global pandemic, you can usually find me somewhere in the world, hiking, getting lost in cities and taking pictures.  Other than that I follow my ambiverted passions of watching series, reading, and listening to a lot of podcasts while going on walks.
