Y SQUARE POD: S01E04 Jus Cam (JC) & Homebase (HB)

In this episode of Y square podcast, the podcast opens and closes with a poem dedicated to the land that we love, Sierra Leone. The poem is called "Mama We Are Waiting" by Yasmine Bilks Ibrahim in production with film maker Abu Yillah of The Young Sierra Leonean, find the video here. In episode four we discuss the terms 'JC' and 'Homebase'. JC stands for 'Jus Cam' usually the term used by local Sierra Leoneans to describe visitors from abroad. Homebase is someone who is born and bred in Sierra Leone. The pair discuss the diaspora, discrimination and define the status of someone who is no longer a JC but neither Homebase, however they live in Sierra Leone. Don't miss our JC starter pack and visitor's guide in S01E04 Jus Cam (JC) & Homebase (HB).

Interesting Fact: Sierra Leone is 1 out of the 5 Anglophone countries in West Africa.
African Proverb:"If you want to go quickly go alone, if you want to go far go together." - Old African Proverb.
