Starting in May 2019, the channel has gained a high rating of 4.9/5 and topped the charts in October and subsequent months. This article aims to discuss the development of podcasts in Indonesia. We studying the content and communication methods of the Rintik Sedu podcast to attract millions of listeners on Spotify, and the opportunities for Indonesian podcasters and listeners in utilizing digital podcast media, including providing information, offering personal experiences, alternative media creation, monetization possibilities, complementing traditional radio and video platforms, and providing safe and comfortable long-term access. research methodology employed, which is content analysis using a descriptive approach to study the Rintik Sedu podcast's content in the Spotify streaming application. The researcher method follows the steps outlined by Philip Mayring for analyzing the podcast's content, categorizing the audio content based on episode titles, examining the aspects of the communicator, and interpreting the meaning of the categories. The analysis revealed three main themes: lonely love, love that is too late, and past love, indicating that listeners preferred content focused on romance, particularly stories about unrequited love, missed opportunities, and past relationships.

The preservation of gender ideology can be noticed in the portrayal of women as weak people who are always intimidated both physically, sexually, and economically. The image of women as weak creatures is depicted in the Layangan Putus film series. These film series reach the highest rank in several Southeast Asian countries. The film describes a wife's pressure from her husband's affair and her struggle to overcome it. This study aims to analyze the representations of women in the context of images and scenarios in a film shown in the film series Layangan Putus using Roland Barthes' semiotic approach. Barthes introduces the concept of denotation, connotations, and myths. The results revealed that the denotation analysis and connotation level in the Layangan Putus film series confirm women's opposition to gender roles. Furthermore, this opposition aligns with Liberal Feminism seeking to liberate women from male domination. Liberal feminists aim to liberate women from gender-based constraints, challenging the lower status assigned to them solely due to their sex. On the other hand, true equality can be achieved by embracing androgynous perspectives, recognizing that both men and women possess characteristics of femininity and masculinity.</p> Ummy Hanifah Titiek Surya Ningsih Copyright (c) 2023 Ummy Hanifah, Titiek Surya Ningsih http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-09-15 2023-09-15 17 2 161 173 10.24090/komunika.v17i2.7659 Ganjar Pranowo’s Storytelling and Political Image on Social Media https://ejournal.uinsaizu.ac.id/index.php/komunika/article/view/7206 <p>Politics is not socially empty. Therefore, politicians must also find the right strategy to increase popularity and electability. One way that can be used is the use of social media. Social media is now widely used by political actors as a means to absorb aspirations in the political field. One of the social media that is currently widely used as a political tool is TikTok. As of April 2022, there are 99,072,000 TikTok users in Indonesia or 51.1% of the Indonesian population aged 18 years and over. This article aimed to explore how Ganjar Pranowo built his self-image through his TikTok account @ganjarpranowofc and what storytelling strategies were used in that image. A qualitative approach with a content analysis method is used in writing this article. There are 252 videos from the TikTok account @ganjarpranowo were analyzed from January to May 2022. This article uses the political image category approach described in Liebhart and Bernhardt's research (2017) as a basis for analysis. From this research, Ganjar Pranowo simplifies political issues in his imagery efforts. In addition, there are indications of three storytelling strategies used in political imagery on the TikTok account: the biographical strategy, the incumbent strategy, and the Kagama chairman strategy.</p> Nani Nurani Muksin Astriana Baiti Sinaga Hendra Hidayat Daniel Handoko Amin Shabana Copyright (c) 2023 Nani Nurani Muksin, Astriana Baiti Sinaga, Hendra Hidayat, Daniel Handoko, Amin Shabana http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-09-19 2023-09-19 17 2 175 190 10.24090/komunika.v17i2.7206 Be Real, Do Not Be Fake: A Pilot Study on Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia Students' Fake News Literacy https://ejournal.uinsaizu.ac.id/index.php/komunika/article/view/7540 <p>If nothing is accomplished to stop it, the virality of fake news on social media will continue to grow and become more damaging, particularly among young people. Recognizing false information and verifying sources has become increasingly important as people rely on the Internet and social media for their news. The primary objective of this study is to assess the level of understanding of fake news media literacy among university students. Forty-three Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia students enrolled in the New Media Communication program were polled for this research. This study uses descriptive statistics to analyze the data collected via Google Forms—the results of examining the data generated immediately through a Google form. Young people read the news online but still have limited media literacy when assessing the truth of information. Research suggests that false statement is commonly discovered because young people do not carefully examine online news. Researchers conduct in-depth interviews and studies with this demographic to better understand how young people process information and evaluate its veracity. This research adds to the expanding body of knowledge on student use of social media in Malaysia, especially on how students get their news in light of the results of this pilot study, the main research project will consist of in-depth interviews with students to understand more about their perspectives on how to identify and differentiate between real and fake news.</p> Afiqah Mior Kamarulbaid Muhammad Raqib Mohd Sofian Nurul Nadirah Abu Hasan Nurul Fathihin Mohd Noor Shah Norsimaa Mustaffa Hafizuddin Mohamed Najid Mohd Faridh Hafez Mhd Omar Copyright (c) 2023 Afiqah Mior Kamarulbaid, Muhammad Raqib Mohd Sofian, Nurul Nadirah Abu Hasan, Nurul Fathihin Mohd Noor Shah, Norsimaa Mustaffa, Hafizuddin Mohamed Najid, Mohd Faridh Hafez Mhd Omar http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-09-19 2023-09-19 17 2 191 210 10.24090/komunika.v17i2.7540 Effective Communication in Deradicalization of Ex-Terrorism Convict https://ejournal.uinsaizu.ac.id/index.php/komunika/article/view/8062 <p>Terrorism always creates social, economic, and political chaos. Acts of terrorism in Indonesia are generally caused by religious beliefs and radical understandings held by the perpetrators. Terrorist convicts still maintain this belief, so a special approach is needed to run the deradicalization process effectively. Therefore, this research discusses issues regarding applying effective communication in the deradicalization process for terrorism convicts. An effective communication approach is positioned to support apparatus programs in the deradicalization process. This study uses a phenomenological approach to understand better the views and experiences of terrorism convicts undergoing the deradicalization process. The aim is to find and analyze effective forms of communication in the deradicalization process for terrorism convicts. The results of this study indicate that effective communication in the deradicalization process for terrorism convicts can be achieved through an approach that involves real and continuous attention, dialogue that is very careful about religious understanding, avoiding the act of extracting information about terrorist networks from the Police and BNPT; as well as people involved in handling terrorism; and applying an empathetic communication approach in embracing terrorism convicts, so that they do not return to the same environment and get a decent life. This approach also aims to ensure that former terrorism convicts feel cared for and valued by society.</p> Ustad Mukorobin Adhi Iman Sulaiman Nana Sutikna Copyright (c) 2023 Ustad Mukorobin, Adhi Iman Sulaiman, Nana Sutikna http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-09-19 2023-09-19 17 2 211 220 10.24090/komunika.v17i2.8062 Mobilization of Da'wah Resources for Chinese Muslims in Indonesia https://ejournal.uinsaizu.ac.id/index.php/komunika/article/view/7740 <p>The Indonesia Chinese Muslim Association (Persatuan Islam Tionghoa Indonesia /PITI) is an organization that has a unique role and phenomenon in Indonesia. The PITI phenomenon is related to the integration and role of the Chinese ethnic group in the realm of Islam in Indonesia. As a religious organization, PITI aims to integrate Chinese groups in Indonesia on an internal religious and ethnic basis. It is due to the long and complex history of the role of ethnic Chinese in Indonesian society, which includes various religious beliefs and beliefs. This article discusses the revitalization of the Da'wah of Chinese Muslims by PITI. PITI is considered an embryo that reinforces the existence of ethnic Chinese in the social arena, especially in establishing relations with natives. PITI should be able to maximize this role to convey opinions and ideas through cadres and utilize existing resources. The author uses a qualitative model by prioritizing the paradigm of social preaching. The analysis in this article will be presented through the results of elaboration with Oberschall's resource mobilization theory, aiming to determine the aspect of resources in the succession of social movements (da’wah). This article has the results of a study that PITI must be a pioneer in alleviating the social disparities that reverberate around natives, Muslims, and Chinese. The effort can be made to optimize their resources to share fresh narratives through their various da'wah channels.</p> Perdana Putra Pangestu Copyright (c) 2023 Perdana Putra Pangestu http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-09-21 2023-09-21 17 2 221 230 10.24090/komunika.v17i2.7740
