Mothering and research
This month's episode discusses the sacrifices associated with being a woman/mother and a researcher. We share our personal experiences and grateful for the support we get from our partners. So, if you feel grossed out by breast-milk pumping, do not listen. Cheers, to all the mamas out there that rock!

Maritime Security
In this new episode of AfriCan Geopardy, we receive our guest of the month, Dr. Dirk Siebels to talk about maritime security in Africa. Who hasn't heard about piracy in the horn of Africa, or around the Niger Delta? While many think maritime security could be summarized to that, in reality there is no generally agreed upon definition for maritime security. We define it as the absence of threat -- threats to seafarers, including fisherfolks and anyone that depends on the marine environment for livelihoods; threats to the state from other state and non-state actors. The maritime domain captures adequately, the interconnectedness of the human and national security discourse in that security threat at sea have implications for the security of the state and the people who depend on the marine environment for subsistence. In this Episode, Dr. Siebels talks about his new book: Maritime Security in West and East Africa: a tale of two regions, available at: https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030226879 Listen and share!

Helicopter research and data collection in the global South
In this episode, our guest Dr. Nelly Isigi Kadagi joins us to talk about helicopter research and data collection modes in the global South, and methods of engagement. Helicopter research describes when researchers from wealthier countries fly to a developing country like Indonesia, take samples, fly out, analyze the samples elsewhere, and publish the results with little involvement of local scientists. At best, local scientists are used to provide logistics, and may not even be acknowledged. We illustrate this issue with anecdotes, and explore some successes of research engagement from the global south.

Women and minorities in research
This is our very first podcast where we all about some of our experiences in research, being women, African, working from the West, and describing some funny work situations. There are some technical issues related to the fact that we are literally 12,000 km appart. This is Ife and Dyhia and this is AfriCan Geopardy.
