Ep48. A conversation with Michael Woldemariam on the political shakeup in the Horn of Africa

In this week’s episode, we talk about Google’s top search items in African countries in 2018, how Kenyans did in the Singapore marathon, Trump’s new Africa policy, and more. Our featured conversation is with Boston University political scientist Michael Woldemariam (@MikeWoldemariam), who shares his expertise on the Horn of Africa region, where he has conducted extensive fieldwork. He is the author of a new book published earlier this year by Cambridge University Press, Insurgent Fragmentation in the Horn of Africa: Rebellion and Its Discontents. We spoke with Mike a couple of weeks ago at the annual meeting of the African Studies Association and we thank the ASA for making their ASAPOD booth available to us for this interview. His segment begins at 7:58. cc-by-nc-nd
