Podcasting: African BlogShere

This year I set out to start a podcast about African blogs and African bloggers. But my goals to make it consistently hit rock bottom after recording the first episode with a Zimbabwean Blogger who is currently staying in Russia. I was supposed to have the second episode with a guest blogger from Namibia but my app crashed after we had done the recording and lost all the work. It crashed my podcasting devotion but after talking to my guest that day who encouraged me not to give up I knew I had to keep on keeping on.

Months down the road I reached out to two Ugandan bloggers who agreed to be guests. A few hours to recording one got a personal issue so I had to look for another one. I reached out and she got on board on short notice. She has her own podcast that is a week old with more episodes than mine which is 8 months old. If you own a blog you must discern my struggles.


The New podcast episode guests are
Patricia Apio (@thisismeestory) who writes at thisismestory.com and Olivia Byemera (@vhusky27) and her blog is this vyola2cents.wordpress.com

The idea of this particular episode comes up when I read Olivia’s SHE’S THE MAN a piece that seems ordinary but she does raise some questions that the African conservative society has decided not to talk about. As storytellers, we did our small bit by attempting to have a dialogue.

The podcast is available on 13 platforms
Anchor, Google Podcast, Spotify just like the Michelle Obama Podcast, Breaker, Pocket Casts, RadioPublic, CastBox, OverCast, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Listen Notes, Backtracks and hubhoppers.

These are some of the links you can use to listen in as per your best podcast platform and the country where you are. Ugandans DM me I tell you how you can listen to Michelle Obama Podcast on Spotify which is not in Uganda.
