RadioU is a documentary series created by STU Journalism students. Each episode features a “major” and a “minor”, two topics that are somehow related. This series airs every Wednesday at noon, replacing an episode of The Lunchbox.
This episode of the St. Thomas university radio journalism class majors in geography, exploring the vibrant culture and emerging political economy of Africa. The show features African folk legends, profiles of African musicians you need to know about, and a haunting tale of one Nigerian in search of his Irish mentor. We also ask a UNB student from Zimbabwe about hope after the ouster Robert Mugabe, and talk to a Swedish businessman about why he’s investing in Africa.
