    Episode 6 || Ile Ya Human Rights Day (With Li Fung)

    Episode 6 || Ile Ya Human Rights Day (With Li Fung)

    Could we have a Human Rights podcast without including an episode on Human Rights? It didn't seem right to us either. For Human Rights Day, we talk to Li Fung, the Senior Human Rights Advisor to the UN Resident Coordinator in Kenya, about Human Rights in a pandemic and the importance of commemorating Human Rights Day. 
    What are we Jamming to this week? We’re glad you asked!
    This week we love Redemption Song by Bob Marley & The Wailers.
    "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. 
    None but ourselves can free our minds. "
    Those lyrics ring true today as they did in 1980 when this song was released.

    Episode 5 || Ile Ya Privilege (With Bev and Dam)

    Episode 5 || Ile Ya Privilege (With Bev and Dam)

    Five minutes to listen to Bev and Dam didn't seem right to us, so this week they strip down their privilege and how it impacts their work in the Human Rights Movement. 

    What are we Jamming to this week? We’re glad you asked! 

    This week we're listening to Tujiangalie by Sauti Sol feat. Nyashinski.

    When two Kenyan greats come together, this magnificence is the outcome. This song just forces you to introspect.
