Reacting To Porn Causing Pregnancies in Kenya!
There is no doubt that there has been growing number of teenage pregnancies across the country. Health authorities reported over 150,000 cases in the first quarter of 2020 alone. And it seems like some government officials are angry about this and yes, the issue needs to be addressed. But is it right to blame pornography as the root cause for these growing numbers?

What is it Like Being a Woman On Social Media?
In this episode of He vs She, we put 6 individuals into one recording with the aim to understand women's experiences on social media. Whether it's on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok or Twitter, it is no doubt that young Kenyan women outnumber men in use and time spent on social media. But that does not mean that the sailing has been smooth. We had a conversation with content creator Maxine Wabosha, TikTok creator Laura Oluoch and social media growth marketer Mimi Wandia on how the social media journey has been for them.  Oh!

Does Your Privacy Matter in the Fight Against Coronavirus?
The Coronavirus pandemic has taken the world by storm. While we all have a role to play in the fight against the virus, a few issues have arisen as to how the Kenyan government is handling issues.  The other day, CS Kagwe Muigai revealed that they were working with Safaricom to track people who had come into contact with COVID-19 patients. This revelation did not sit well with a section of Kenyans who were not comfortable with the government tracking people's movement - even if it was for the good of the population.  In this episode, we discuss why whether or not privacy matters in the fight against Coronavirus.
