  • No Black Africans But Informative

    They have a female indigenous African voice at the beginning and end of the podcast, but no Black African scholars, journalists, or China experts. As a result, albeit very informative, this podcast is quite colonial in nature. Non-native Africans talking about Africa reproduces White supremacy and European imperialism.

  • Seems Africa/ Global South centered. Probably more scholars and citations from the region giving insights would hold more weight.

  • Great Podcast

    Eric and Cobus provide the best podcast on China’s influence in Africa. I would love more podcasts about clean energy infrastructure.

  • This is the exact podcast I've been looking for. China-Africa issues are a special interest of mine and I'm so happy that there is a whole podcast devoted to it! The guests are fantastic and the hosts are dynamic. I recommend this podcast to anyone with a passing interest in China or Africa. The episodes are very detailed, as all the SupChina podcasts are.
