RFI English has launched “Africa Calling”, a 30-minute weekly podcast.
Every Friday journalist Laura-Angela Bagnetto takes a closer look at some of the week’s main news stories on the continent through reports from our 35-strong network of English-speaking correspondents in Africa and interviews with regional experts.
There are also contributions from the French-language Africa Service, as well the Lusophone, Hausa and kiSwahili newsrooms.
They focus on top stories that were broadcast during the week.
Throughout the year, “Africa Calling will also feature special editions dedicated to major issues affecting the African continent.
A number of articles and videos related to the podcast’s contents can be accessed via the website and on social media.
