  • Woke economics

    Repeatedly stating that African economic problems are because of the “white colonial overlords” ignores the complexity of the problem and deprives Africans of initiative in their own history by categorising them as victims.

  • Why Africa is still poor

    I love your podcast and especially its international variety but did you get the country right when, in Why Africa is still poor, you said when you arrived in South Africa, you got into an armoured car, and stayed in a gated community and then left? Sounds like somewhere else? We walk on beaches/mountains, shop, play in public parks, go to movies and restaurants- and all in v ordinary cars.

  • Good but too fast

    In like the information that is presented and the format, but the host talks so fast that sometimes I have to listen multiple times to understand and retain all the information. I wish he would slow down a little bit 😀.
