Ufahamu Africa is a podcast about life and politics on the continent. Our weekly episodes begin with an overview of what we’re reading and learning from the continent, followed by an in-depth interview with a thinker, maker, or innovator. New episodes are released every Saturday.
Ufahamu in Kiswahili translates to understanding or consciousness in English. The podcast will feature content and cover events with the aim of broadening our audience’s understanding of the continent.
