Episode 11: Enock Dankyi and the Bees
This episode is my conversation with Dr. Enock Dankyi from the University of Ghana in the Legon Region near Accra. Dr. Dankyi is a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and is alumnus of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship - Advanced Scholars Program. Under this scholarship, Dr. Dankyi studied at Carleton University to progress his research into neonicotinoids in fertilizers used on cocoa crops in Ghana, and how its usage affects bee populations; this was our topic of conversation in this episode. I learned a lot and Dr. Dankyi is a very interesting and knowledgeable individual, so I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

Episode 10: Teddy Samy
Welcome to the first episode of Season 2 of All About Aid! Though I have taken a small hiatus, I plan to kick this season into gear again and bring some new and interesting interviews with some very fascinating people.
This episode is an interview that I recorded with Dr. Teddy Samy, the Director of the Norman Patterson School of International Affairs. Dr. Samy teaches courses in economic development, international assistance and quantitative methods. His broad research interests are in the areas of international trade and development economics. More specifically, he has worked on trade and labor standards; debt relief; and aid allocation and aid effectiveness in fragile states. Some of his current work is examining the role of emerging donors; the allocation of aid for trade; and the relationship between taxation and development. In this episode, we spoke mostly about aid effectiveness and the appropriate metrics needed to quantify the value of aid to a given recipient country. This interview was very insightful and Dr. Samy is a fascinating individual to speak with, so I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
Episode 9: Steve Mason
Hello Everyone and welcome back to a new season of All About Aid! For this episode, I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Steve Mason, the Director of Programming at the Aga Khan Foundation of Canada (AKFC). In this episode, we spoke about Steve's path to his current position, some of the projects and initiatives in operation for AKFC, as well as the philosophy behind the foundation's practices around the world. It was a really great conversation and I feel I learned a lot from him, so I hope that you all do as well. For those who are interested, Steve highly recommends the blog, From Poverty to Power by Duncan Green from Oxfam, as well as the book Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo.
