4 SIERRA LEONEAN PODCASTS YOU SHOULD DISCOVER:


As it is the month of Sierra Leone’s Independence, I will be creating Salone special content, hopefully not only for the month but it’s a good way to start producing regular content about the country I reside in.

In the rise of new media outlets such as video recording and social media, podcasts are currently in a league of their own. They are the new favourite amongst many people, with podcasters and listeners joining the wave daily. The beauty with podcasts is that you can take part in another task whilst engaging with an audio episode of your favourite podcast show. E.g. listen during your commute, your drive, whilst cleaning – you name it! I’ve noted my favourite podcasts in previous years, now let me share the podcasts currently in Sierra Leone and by Sierra Leoneans. Here are 4 Sierra Leonean Podcasts you should discover:

Enjoy!


1.     Y SQUARE POD


The podcast is by two ladies of the diaspora who have moved from the UK and the States to their country of origin, Sierra Leone.  I co host the show alongside Mina Bilkis. We thought we would come together and collaborate by sharing our perspectives and everyday experience in Freetown, Sierra Leone as people of the diaspora that have moved by and informing the listeners about the land that we love.


2.     PLASAS & POYO


Is hosted by three young Sierra Leoneans Tarah, Elaine and Mario who discuss navigating through life in Sierra Leone, current affairs, relationships and dilemmas. Bringing young Salone like you have never head it before.



3. TEA & PEPPERSOUP


Tea & Peppersoup hosted by Moiyattu Banya-Keister is a motivational podcast where the host Moiyattu shares her own experiences in social impact and entrepreneurship with the aim to inspire and uplift her audience.  Focusing of faith, self-care and wellness the podcast is to encourage the listeners to identify their purpose in life.


4.     THE GO WOMAN PODCAST


The GoWoman Podcast is a series presented by Vickie Remoe as she is joined by a guest each episode, shining a light on the 21st century African woman. Our trials, our tribulations and our day-to-day experience navigating in a continent that is I quote, “not prepared for African women that are free thinkers”.
