Kudos and Saudades
I have been listening all day to your podcast and haven’t the words to fully express what I feel. The topic and messages within the podcast itself are very important and presented in a thoughtful and thorough manner, which I love. However, what prompted my rating were the flood of memories it brought back to me from having made the opposite trip several times while I lived and worked in Mozambique for about 14 months some 23 years ago. I traveled many times with very close Mozambican friends through the southern border crossing to South Africa and spent a good amount of time in the Malelane and Crocodile Bridge Gate vicinities. While poaching was not as large a problem then, it did occur and we discussed it during our travels. I was also privileged to have experienced multiple “Friday evening history-sharings under the Marula tree (or a Mango Tree)” sessions in Maputo listening to independence war and civil war stories from some who had participated and some who had simply lived to tell. Your podcast brought back rich, vivid, beautiful, emotional, full, complex and confronting memories of my time there including the sounds, smells, sights, beauty, poignance and underlying insecurity of life in the Maputo region during the post civil war time period… as well as the sweet, and at times overwhelming smell of sugar cane and molasses in and around Malelane… you have left me with, as they say in Mozambique, muitas saudades!

Finally.. an exploration of the rhino poaching problem that challenges conservationists and global observers to ask themselves the difficult questions. A well-researched, balanced, empathetic approach. The original tracks at the end of each episode are also phenomenal!

I’m loving listening to this beautifully executed podcast. It is personal and sensitive and the topics explored are so important in the context of what is happening in South Africa at the moment. Congratulations to the team

Wildly profound and thought provoking! I quite honest don’t care about the subject matter in this podcast but the moral questions she asks are fantastic and makes you have to reflect. 5/5
