In the meantime, I’ve made some more technical improvements.  I have moved the server, to make it easier and faster to download for our listeners in Khartoum and Kinshasa; and though the file size is smaller (15Mb) the sound quality is a little better.  I’ve also kept is a bit shorter, to just 45 minutes.

As ever, I’d welcome feedback about this podcast.  Do you find it interesting? Do you have suggestions for future topics, or guests?  Perhaps you would like to come on yourself?

  1. Thanks Owen! I downloaded it yesterday and my wife and I listened to it in the car today (both of us work in development). We loved it! Clear and informative. The choice of guests was great. As for future interviewees, maybe Ruth Levine? Paul Farmer? Gita Sen? How many can I list…

    But please, most importantly, keep the service going.
