The Flip is an editorial-style podcast exploring contextually relevant insights from entrepreneurs and investors changing the status quo in Africa. The name The Flip comes from the opportunity to flip the script – question some of the pervasive narratives on entrepreneurship, challenge the ubiquity of Silicon Valley thought leadership, and champion the entrepreneurs building a future inspired by Africa. Produced and hosted by Johannesburg-based entrepreneur and American expat Justin Norman. Sayo Folawiyo is the executive producer and b-mic.

A much needed, in depth, local look at the tech entrepreneurship ecosystem on the continent.
I recently found this one and it's great! It really gives a worm's eye view of entrepreneurship on the continent and all of the different challenges that are unique for African startups.
