I really enjoy listening to this podcast. Learning a lot!

Generally good show but a stupid recent guest, a black “British” woman asking for reparations, she completely dodged the fact that the Africans themselves enslaved and sold other Africans to the Europeans, we already paid you for the slaves when you sold them to us we’re not paying you again so...Read full review »

I used to listen daily to Africa Today….it was so informative and I learnt so much about the whole continent. This current format is a real disappointment. It’s a longer version of Africa Daily with Alan Kasujja, and really, he can’t be beat. Go back to Africa Today, and I will listen daily,...Read full review »

It’s unfortunate that this is the only vast news podcast about Africa

I’ve listened since 2016, I loved learning about elections and other issues effecting Africans inside Africa. Now the quality and format has completely changed. I stopped subscribing
sciencepyar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/23
I loved listening daily to get news, this isn’t really a news show anymore. Also the interviewers cut off people mid sentence, wrap up segments before a salutation, and raise their voices at times with some people that they interview. As a Black American who is interested in what is going on...Read full review »

You report about baguette shortage, care home abuse and ignore a civil war / unrest in Ethiopia’s Amhara, in which hundreds - thousands die, and a population bigger than most African country’s is affected directly. No doubt you have a disgraceful motive in ignoring and playing down.

Yes, please do a story on the witchcraft camps. I am learning so much from your broadcast and have followed you here from Africa Today. Thank you! - Carol from Texas

The BBC has succeeded in stripping down the significance of the African continent by reducing the rich and entirely satisfactory Africa Today podcast to this anemic and most unsatisfying version. What was wrong with the previous format— a comprehensive and extremely reliable news roundup on the...Read full review »

I really don’t like the new podcast. It should be called focus on a few topics in Africa. As Black American, I looked forward to the daily news from the motherland, now I feel like I’m getting a magazine version of news, a lazy version of information from Africa..... NOT GOOD!!
elginman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/23
I have been listening to this podcast for more than three years now. I’m very disappointed with the reports on this podcast. Most of the news are about same countries in Africa. About three years ago my country Guinea-Bissau had election. It was a mess of an election. It was reported here. ...Read full review »

I understand the cuts were enforced on the team but please can we have a news programme back and not a magazine programme- however good!

I have always loved and listened to the Africa Today podcast, ever since I took my first African Politics class at university. I will miss it dearly but am looking forward to following the news and updates from the BBC’s Focus on Africa in the BBC Sounds app.
Chris_McLean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/23
It’s disappointing this will come to an end as I’m Inc Canada and info on the continent is informative but I do look forward to its replacement. Please confirm the exact name of the predecessor podcast so that I may sign up as Focus On Africa (as noted in your notification at the start of each...Read full review »

I find Bola and Audrey interview questions interesting. I’d like the podcast to go deeper on certain subjects and for example try to unpack the root causes of the expansion of terrorism in West Africa. All this in a format digestible for folks not routinely following the subject. An example of...Read full review »

Thank you, I enjoy your podcast immensely. However, I do think China is taking advantage of many countries and projects in Africa at large. Clear projection of your stories on a regular basis.

Thank you for featuring the impacts felt by the agricultural sector from the war in the Ukraine. I am curious to know if the environment will benefit from less application of industrial fertilizer, less nitrogen runoff and such. Regenerative agricultural practices may be part of a solution.
T Drinker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/22
I like the style and small updates beforehand on other stories before jumping into the main events and stories. I think more positive news could be included, but I appreciate the interviews and the input from people in the countries. Love the podcast, one of my favorites for Africa news!

Is only bad news allowed here? Do better

Great interviews and explainers on issues affecting the African content between African countries and their place globally.

First I am glad that you are publishing daily news. But you really must balance the news of rape, devastation, intimidation, hunger with positive stories. We are more than just stories of criminal behavior. Only then will I rate it a 5. I am not looking for fluffy stories - we have many...Read full review »

I wish I’d give more than 5 stars. Listening to Africa today is always a treat for me. So far, this has been my most reliable source of African news. If you want a summary of events from every corner of the world’s most gorgeous continent - look no further than the podcasts here. Thank you, BBC,...Read full review »

What has happened to what used to be one of my go to pods? From natural and authentic journalists to stiff script readers? Also new flow has changed to shorter updates. Stress full without depth.
wiholm via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 02/01/21
In Australia, from a news perspective, Africa may as well not exist. Africa Today is a perfect antidote. By Africans, for Africans.
Inga Ting via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/24/21
Great podcast for keeping up with the news across the continent! Well researched and up-to-date on the current events

Great daily news roundup and informative in depth stories. Sometimes there are editing errors but overall it’s a good show.

I’m a black man in Chicago, and I wanted to get a pulse on the African landscape, beyond the quick news headlines. This podcast serves well. A daily listen.

I love the daily update about what happens in Africa. On the regular news in Europe you will lose a lot of information but thanks to this podcast I’m always up to date!

The more on socio-economic issues, the more interesting
Absolute Ma via Apple Podcasts · Thailand · 09/25/20
My podcast of choice for daily news and stories from Africa. Apart from headlines there is also enough time to provide insights on topics that do not receive enough attention in the media. In many episodes important guests are interviewed and questioned critically. A very good piece of journalism.
JakobJunior via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/29/20
Constantly making it better! Excellent reporters, good balance in the stories, responsive to feedback. I wish our governments were this professional.

This podcast is informative and necessary for on the ground, up to date reporting on a continent that’s much more important than what’s implied by mainstream media coverage.
DN4486 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/20
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.
