Africa Podcasts From BBC World Service

June 11, 2010 | By |

Get the latest BBC World news, features and analysis from Africa

This week’s suggestion is to stream or download one of the well-produced Africa-focussed podcasts from the BBC World Service.   These excellent audio files are a handy and effective way to keep informed of some major news topics and analysis, while fostering our connection to and our awareness of life in Africa.  

Don’t feel you have to wait until you have time to listen to a whole episode.  You’ll be pleased by how much you pick up from just hitting “play” and listening for a few minutes once a week while cleaning your (insert one:  kitchen, litterboxes, car, bathroom, spam folder … ).

Africa Today presents “daily news and analysis from the BBC’s Focus on Africa and Network Africa.”

This Week in Africa gives you “a look back at the people and events that have made the news in Africa this week.”

The African Perspective podcast is “a weekly African documentary, which takes an in-depth look at life on the continent.”


  1. ‘This Week in Africa’ is actually already a staple of my dishwashing podcast line up. Looking forward to trying out some of the others!
