We are getting closer to the pilot episode the team has been working on! In this fourth episode, Sibusisiwe Kumbaca and Sakhe Tshoni connect us with the team, where we hear how they are making final decisions about stories they would like to include in the podcast. The team has now settled on naming the media review podcast: Africa Media Review. We hear the team meeting for the first time to talk about content for the pilot of Africa Media Review. My only story is a hot topic in Makhanda and South Africa. Each team member is tasked to listen to an episode of My Only Story, while Sibusisiwe Kumbaca and Yandiswa Calane agree that they will be producing a feature on this groundbreaking podcast for Africa Media Review. As for the rest of the team: Garfield Khanyile looks at an interesting and hot off the press paper on the media and the gender order. Sakhe Tshoni and Zisanda Solwandle look at the relationship between the media and the local government elections. Lastly, Noxolo Manyati and Nwabisa Nkani look at the importance of the media in the pandemic. We get the scope of what goes into making these exciting stories
