Celebrating African Female Podcasters

Updated: May 16, 2021

Dear Africana Woman,

As I have began to walk the path of podcasting, I have begun to discover some amazing African female led podcasts. We are literally all saying the same thing. It is time that the voice of African women be heard and our stories be told. It is time that we are represented and African girls and women are able to see themselves represented in the media. There are so many African Women that have done and are doing AMAZING things but we don’t hear about them. I love my Black sisters in the USA and UK but it is not enough. There is something about seeing someone like you who walked the streets you walk on and who has excelled in their own unique way. It gives you a hope that you feel is attainable.

So I would love to share some of the podcasts that I have found so far. I am pretty sure there are more out there. Do check them out and let me know what you think.

Ndini with Sandra Chuma

NDINI features the stories of groundbreakers, trailblazers, innovators, achievers and inspiring women of African descent.

It's a podcast to entertain, inform, inspire and empower through showcasing the achievements of African women.

And by sharing these stories, raise the ceiling and widen the scope of what we believe is possible for ourselves.

Sandra has a knack for making her guests say more than the thought they would.
