The BOKODIL podcast was launched in November 2020. Its creator and dreamer is Petra Kata Heilman, whose biggest goal in the past few years has been to involve the young generation in the world of contemporary literature.

For me, it's not just a hobby, but a tool with which I can play a useful role in society. I believe that with the questions raised by the podcast channel, I can make a meaningful contribution to the useful enjoyment of other people's leisure activities, learning and self-awareness development. In the last 2 years, there have been fewer and fewer opportunities to visit personal programs and courses, so the podcast as a genre plays a particularly important role. - said Petra Heilman, the intellectual owner of the initiative.
