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.

Thank you for your excellent news reporting. I’m an African-American woman from Texas listening daily and find it very informative and enlightening.

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!

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 »

Very informative but the tone of the interviewer sometimes is condescending. Is it just me?

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
c. i. v. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/21
Great daily news roundup and informative in depth stories. Sometimes there are editing errors but overall it’s a good show.
samshshs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
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. Gives you the news, whether the continuing struggles of adapting to democracy in some nations, the conflicts in the less modernized nations,...Read full review »

Very good real time updates for us in the diaspora

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!
Mugisha S via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 11/10/20
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.
Cenzano via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/19
I like it it’s tell you exactly what is happening around the today that you can listen to and get more understanding so thank you podcast May continue to help you people to keep up the good work you are doing

Excellent program, enjoy hearing about Africa apart from the music, but I am white so may be I don’t understand it ! Regards, RHD.

Since I found this podcast, it keeps me up to date with current news and affairs in Africa. Really enjoyed it a lot.

We know all this things are happening in Africa, but there are positive things happening there as well, it would be nice to sometimes highlight those.

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!
hya cinth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/19
Please, more good news stories of something positive happening on the continent. At least one every episode will make a difference in someone’s life.

Very informative and a source of credibility information.
Dee's Digital via Apple Podcasts · Zimbabwe · 12/28/18
Very informative and always gives both sides of the story and resident President is always a delight...am usual Hassan Harudi is Olishabush
neribaba via Apple Podcasts · Nigeria · 12/08/18
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.
Karen II via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/18
It’s good to hear news about Africa that is not in mainstream news!!!
Fanny-Fifi via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/08/17
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.Read full review »

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...Read full review »

Not so good coverage but great interviews and insights on range of issues around Africa Location: Dar Es Salaam

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!
