Great podcast. I'm kindda hooked as I'm a tech evangelist in Nigeria. However, there's the need to correct the name of the Chief of Staff to the Preaident of Nigeria. Your presenter say Abraham Gambari. The first name is actually Ibrahim. Pronounced Eee-bra-heem.Read full review »

This is a really great podcast with enlightening topics and quality hosts and guests. I wish the episodes could be a little bit longer in order to delve a little deeper, but I highly recommend the show. I started listening a few years ago out of passing curiosity, and I ended up writing my master...Read full review »

Great information and both Eric and Cobus are excellent. The only problem is that some of their Chinese presenters are subpar. I don't fault the podcast for this however, as they get good speakers from Africa. Oftentimes the Chinese that they interview sound like they are reading from a CCP...Read full review »

I like the content and I really like Cobus (Kobus?) van Staden. He's smart and reasonable. But Eric Olander is so freaking annoying. He's often casually racist towards his non-white guests. He's often really rude to the African guests in a way that he never is towards white guests. Maybe he...Read full review »

The two hosts of this podcast have a deep knowledge of both sets of issues, Chinese & African. Frequently they, along with a guest, will go down a logic path common in popular media… but they pull you right back with a logical or statistical either rebuttal or explanation. Analytical and...Read full review »

If you are interested in Africa and China relations then this podcast is the right one to subscribe to. I like how both presenters approach subjects objectively and by that I mean they give you what Western, African and Chinese media coverage on different subject matters are.

I started listening to this podcast series in order to introduce myself to key areas of China’s relationships with African countries, as well as currently issues that influence these relationships. The discussions are pertinent and insightful, often involving specialists in their fields to...Read full review »

An engaging and thoughtful analysis of a range of issues in Sino-African relations. This podcast is an excellent source for discussions of topics of international significance often sidelined in American media.

Great podcast to follow developments in Africa that are related to socio-economic and political changes, which result from economic activities of very diverse Chinese actors on the continent. The conversations are always informative and insightful.

Unparalleled exploration of China's engagement across Africa from multiple perspectives, combining in-depth analysis and trends with great guests.

If you want to know what the Chinese government and Chinese business are doing in Africa, this is THE resource for you. These guys host timely podcasts on a wide variety of interactions between China and Africa, and they have a great collection of articles at their website, too!

A fantastic podcast focusing on this most important but largely ignored by westerners topic. Each episode stands on its own, but there are continuing themes that are stressed throughout to provide continuity. Extremely balanced presentation of viewpoints. Inclusion of African, Chinese, and...Read full review »

Great podcast. Through the context of China/Africa relations, you learn about globally relevant issues and start to get a better idea bout he issues facing these two up and coming regions. Sound quality can be average sometimes, but this does little to get in the way of great discussions with...Read full review »

I love the mix that this podcast brings. They discuss all the different facets of Chinese-African relations and they do a good job of providing great nuance and perspective to the discussion.

I have been listening to this podcast for over a year.  Eric Olander deserves kudos for running this show as professionally as he does, and with finely tuned, intelligent delivery.  He continually presses the points, demands clarity of information from his sources and presses his interviewees on...Read full review »

The China Africa project is my favorite of the many excellent China related podcasts. High quality information and analysis every time!
Joseph Nordstrom via Apple Podcasts · China · 08/23/13
The hosts really capture the complicated nuances involved in China-African relations. Recommended to anyone with an interest in either Africa's development or China's role in the world economy.

This is a great podcast for anyone looking for intelligent and varied commentary on the African-Chinese relationship from multiple perspectives. Highly recommended.
1000101_Dude via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/22/12
Love the show. I grew up in Africa and they tell it as it is. They offer a balanced view and invite scholars/journalists to comment on issues regarding China and Africa. Especially loved the Nick Francis episode (When China met Africa).
Kungwan2000 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/03/12
China-Africa relations are overlooked in the west but will be critically important this century. This podcast is educational, informative and applicable to business, especially anything related to China or Africa.
Kikbo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/12
The 3 members of the podcast team are very well informed on China-Africa issues and cover very well issues that receive little attention in the US.
cwsherman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/12
This is by far my favorite podcast! The most provocative analysis on China-Africa relations with fun personalities. Eric and Cobus are truly experts in this field.
