We usually interview people, but this time, we were actually interviewed on another podcast. Guy Hasson is the founder of Comics Empower, a comic book store for the blind and visually impaired, and the host of the Blind Panels podcast, where we were guests. We tell Guy all about how we got started and what we do. And if you’re wondering “why a comic book store for the blind”, here’s why Guy is doing it.

Since a few of the things we spoke with Guy about are things we’ve covered on our podcast before, we will put links to the respective episodes on our podcast or the Kugali blog for you to find those things.

Demi talked about the Nigerian superstition behind picking up lost money found on the floor being a bad omen, and Tolu mentioned a musical comedy that portrays this superstition. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a clear video of it anywhere, so watch this low quality video if you will. You might need a Nigerian friend to explain all the vernacular to you.

  2. […] Finally, there’s the most important part: The content of the podcast. How do we have enough to talk about for 30 – 60 minutes every week, while staying within our niche? How do we interview people from all over Africa and the diaspora? And how do we do all this on time for our weekly release? Well, we’re not gonna tell you all our secrets!  Seriously though, it’s really just hard work and persistence.
