James Murua’s Literature Blog has launched a podcast series.

Founded in 2012 by Kenyan blogger James Murua, James Murua’s Literature Blog covers news and events on the African literary scene.

Here is part of the announcement:

We here at JamesMurua.com have embarked on a new journey as we set up a new podcast for your enjoyment.

We have been mulling about a new direction for a while now and can finally unveil the new product; our podcast. The podcast which is hosted on Anchor is simply the “African Literary Podcast” and will give you news and reviews from across the African continent. At the moment we can only commit to hosting one podcast a week.

The first of our podcasts we call “The Journey Begins” speaks about what happened in the past week including book launches, a conference and a look forward to the new week. We also do a mini review of Mukoma Wa Ngugi’s third novel Mrs Shaw. Check out the 18 minute podcast below. We would appreciate your opinion on the first outing with an eye to improving it for listeners.

This is an enhancing direction that James Murua has moved in. Congratulations to him.

Listen to the podcast HERE.
