Educative and Accurate

I really like the fact that you guys perform deep research before each podcast. You don’t sell false narratives to your listeners and I really appreciate that. I’ve really enjoyed listening too your podcasts and getting informed especially during this pandemic period. Keep up the good work. Will recommend!

Very informative

Good mix of news and interviews with people doing interesting things. It’s a great way to learn more about Africa since the American press does not provide much information and when it does, it’s not often from the perspective of people who are very knowledgeable about it.
