The Record is an independent digital-native publication based in Kathmandu. It offers fresh analysis on politics, society, and culture.

The Record is less a source for breaking news than a place where writers and readers can reflect on the news of the day. We publish Long Reads, Explainers, Podcasts, Short Docs, and more. We look for nuance, and we care about the little things. Don’t miss our Nepali-language publication, रेकर्ड नेपाल (Record Nepal, currently on hibernation). Both publications are published by Allied Media Pvt. Ltd.

The Record was founded by Gyanu Adhikari and Katherine Saunders. It was launched in May 2014.
