Podcast Corner: Africa Science Focus
If you are a lover of technology and how science and technology affect our day-to-day life then this is a podcast that will definitely interest you. With a new episode each week, it offers insight into the impact science is having on health, agriculture and technology in Africa.
The production which also airs on selected radio outlets across Africa employs varied techniques of creative storytelling including interviews with experts, policymakers, government officials and ordinary members of the public for their insights from different perspectives.
The series which began last year has just completed its first season and has covered topics like plastic waste management, legalization of cannabis cultivation for medical and industrial use in Africa, gender gaps in technology, role of indigenous languages in science, blockchain for farming and gender disparity in STEM courses among others.
Africa Science Focus is Produced by SciDev.Net, the world’s leading source of news, views and analysis about science and technology for global development.
