Our Background

To create an idea you need to know first what is happening around the world, this gives you a push to invent on new things. This was what happened in the mind of Rialdo Shepherd, DJ and electronic music producer and host of “Dance Nation Podcast ” program. Rialdo knew about the Podcast format via the internet which followers of great artists can hear pre-recorded shows without having to wait a day or specific time. This method is a good way for people to always keep in tune from their artists touring, news, new releases of their products and more.

Our Host

Rialdo is still a strong supporter of the best podcast in the world as ”Global DJ Broadcast by Markus Schulz “, ”Radio Group Therapy by Above and Beyond”, ”Vonyc Sessions Paul Van Dyk “, “A State Of Trance Armin Van Buuren ” and many more. Rialdo saw the huge amount of followers of all these Podcast and visioned a big opportunity in trying to find a way so that his followers can also hear him. Generally the biggest artists and djs from around the world have global hits, albums that become anthems and then create their record labels, make their own radio programs and podcast version, then after that they can go much further like creating TV programs and such; the possibilities for a renowned artist are limitless. Rialdo, However , not being a renowned artist, decided to do the opposite, first creating a Podcast for their fans to hear their new releases and DJ sets.


Dance Nation Podcast was thus created in November 2011 with episode 001, lasting 1 hour and English spoken for reaching an international market. The original idea was that listeners were registered for each week, getting a notification of a new episode and increasing his audience. In 2012, he joined with DJ and producer Sergio Mix, which was a guest dj for episode 015. Sergio found a lot of potential on the podcast so he decided to join forces with Rialdo. This show is now a well-established company which has become an agency with a roster of more than 13 new DJs and Producers of the local scene and also a promoter for sponsoring events like “Insomnia“, ” Francis Davila at Ryu Hotel ” and ” Youngsters Festival ” with international artists like counting Filo and Peri, Francis Davila, Allure, Showtek, Hannah and many more. Dance Nation Podcast is still transmitting, with new episodes every Monday for 1 hour hosted by Rialdo Shepherd and guest DJs which can vary between Progressive, House, Electro and Trance music. Dance Nation Podcast is now the Podcast with more episodes in Panama and the only Spoken English Podcast in Panama and also the only podcast with a roster of local artists. Dance Nation Podcast is the undisputed number 1 Panama.
