Ep20. A conversation with Dr. Adia Benton on global health, Ebola as a ‘charismatic disease,’ and more

In this week’s episode, we speak with Dr. Adia Benton (@Ethnography911), a professor in anthropology and in the Program of African Studies at Northwestern University. In 2015, the University of Minnesota Press published her book, HIV Exceptionalism: Disease through Development in Sierra Leone. We talk about her book and we also discuss the change in leadership at the World Health Organization, Ebola outbreaks, her research in global health, and more. Our conversation begins at 4:10.

Our featured song this week is Sade by Mayorkun (@IamMayorKun). You can read the story behind this hit song by Sabo Kpade (@Sabo_Kpade) on OkayAfrica. Mayorkun’s song begins at 25:06.
