I recently got the opportunity to work as one of the producers on the fifth episode of the Mothers of Invention podcast. A podcast that examines feminist solutions to climate change issues. Climate change isn’t an area I have covered very much in my past works so it has been great to learn and tackle newer social issues. This time i travelled to Uyo in Akwa-ibom state based in the south of Nigeria interviewing Solar sisters who are spreading the clean energy gospel in their local community selling solar lamps and clean energy stoves as well as financially empowering local women.
My parents are actually from Uyo is actually my parents hometown and I hadn’t been there since I was a child so it was great to reacquaint myself with the city and enjoy that southern hospitality for which we are well known.
I hope you enjoy listening to the podcast. Just click here to catch the full episode.
