[LISTEN] Richard Poplak & Kevin Bloom on their book, “Continental Shift”, and the riddle that is Africa.

What is Africa? Is it a place of darkness, of war, famine and corruption? Or, is it lighting the way through massive economic growth? Is Africa a success or failure?

These are some of the questions veteran South African journalists, Kevin Bloom and Richard Poplak, try to answer in their book, Continental Shift: A Journey into Africa’s Changing Fortunes. I asked them about their nine-year road trip to try and solve the riddle that is Africa.

This interview was first played on PowerFM on 3 July 2016.
