It's a very special occasion for Episode 74, as the Cold Drinks Lads invite on Chini and Astrid of the It's A Continent Podcast! It's A Continent Podcast breaks down the history of different African Countries and celebrates their differences and individual greatness, tackling the myth that Africa is a country. Toren, Sillah & Ray sit down with the girls to discuss the origins of It's A Continent and how it came to fruition, with them being the 25th most popular history podcast in the U.K. on Spotify, having only been a podcast for just over a year! Topics discussed include views on a United Africa and whether it would work, Africa's colonial past and the impacts it has on today's governance of African countries, plus the potential that the diaspora has in terms of investing back home but how building back home can also be seen as a form of gentrification if done in a certain way. The group finish off by touching on future plans for It's A Continent and whether they look to delve into the history of other continents! A very educational and insightful episode overall & make sure to check out It's A Continent's Podcast!
