The Curated Commute is a series where I pick interesting podcasts or other audio treats to accompany you on your commute. Hopefully they’ll entertain you and maybe even help you learn a little something while you’re en route…
Today’s featured podcast is a conversation with Douglas Foster, author of the new book After Mandela: The Struggle for Freedom in Post-Apartheid South Africa.
The host Krys Boyd and Foster discuss the following question:
“What are the greatest accomplishments and advances that South Africa has achieved in the twenty-plus years since Nelson Mandela become president and what challenges does the country still face?”
The photo above of school kids on the street in Johannesburg is one I took on a recent (October 2012) trip to South Africa. There are more posts from that trip coming up this week with lots of pictures!
