Not just for “us”!

A lot of people listen to the news of the world irrespective of where on Earth it is. Thus, using the word “us” is uncalled for.

My #1 News Podcast

I've been listening for 5 years, it's my favorite source of news about the continent. Charasmatic corespondents and a range of pieces. They really capture the scope of Africa.

good to hear news from Africa

Africa almost never makes the news in the US except in the case of famine, genocide, governmental corruption, and terrorism. There's plenty of that here too (not so much famine, though) and listening can be sort of grim sometimes, but there's a balance of positive news and culture that I don't hear anyting about from American news sources.
