Women in Podcasting: The Guilty Feminist and Not Your African Cliché

SHARE

Ifeyinwa Arinze couldn’t find any podcasts that reflected her experience as an African migrant – so she got together with a few of her friends and they started their own.
She is a Nigerian neuroscientist and one of the four co-hosts of the podcast Not Your African Cliché. She and her friends Ifeoluwa Olokode, Onyeka Ononye and Amayo Bassey were spurred on to make the podcast after hearing ignorant comments about Africa when they travelled to the U.S. for college. They are on a mission to tell diverse stories of Africans, and invite guests from different African countries to discuss literature, travel and politics with healthy servings of laughter and critical analysis. Ifeyinwa says her podcast is creating a voice for African migrant millennials across the globe.
