Great podcast

I’ve had documentaries to see inside of Africa, but there are so few that show how Africa is modernizing with the rest of the world. I can’t get news that paints an accurate picture of this continent in America, so it’s a relief that I found BBC Africa. Thank you.

Love BBC News Africa

I’ve been listening for I don’t even know how many years. So good to hear news about the continent from a different perspective. Love Resident President, love the hard hitting interviews, love everything about it!

Not just for “us”!

A lot of people listen to the news of the world irrespective of where on Earth it is. Thus, using the word “us” is uncalled for.

My #1 News Podcast

I've been listening for 5 years, it's my favorite source of news about the continent. Charasmatic corespondents and a range of pieces. They really capture the scope of Africa.

good to hear news from Africa

Africa almost never makes the news in the US except in the case of famine, genocide, governmental corruption, and terrorism. There's plenty of that here too (not so much famine, though) and listening can be sort of grim sometimes, but there's a balance of positive news and culture that I don't hear anyting about from American news sources.

Niche and Needed

Hard to find good, in-depth coverage of African issues. BBC Africa stands alone as an excellent source in a niche, but very necessary, area. Thanks!

Wonderful

I so much look forward to the podcast and really miss it when I have listened to them all in commuter-time. But I then get to listen to what is happening in the rest of the world. It so surpasses anything we have here in the US. Thank you...

some issues with subscriptions

This is a wonderful, informative news program. However, I am encountering issues with the subscription program. It does not seem to want to load the new program, even if I have listened to a podcast the day before. It is a bit tedious to have to come to this page in the I-Tunes store to load the latest podcast after I've subscribed. I would appreciate you looking into this. Thanks!

Little short, but long on information

The show is a part of my daily intake. I wish it could be a little longer however and at least have a regularly scheduled guests to be interviewed periodically to give us listeners some of their opinions.Other than that, this is my favorite podcast.
