Nnedi on the BBC

Nnedi Okorafor, who was a guest on our first ever podcast, has recently been on a radio show produced by the BBC World Series. The Forum is very much like a panel discussion podcast, but with very diverse guests. Nnedi’s episode also included an expert on stress who wants hospitals redesigned to make them more welcoming, and an ecologist who wants us to eat insects to reduce food shortages.

The episode is currently available for listening here.
