Mbaganire—An African Folktales Podcast

Patience Nitumwesiga

This podcast is dedicated to the African tradition of oral folktales at the fireplace. We recreate the lively and engaging story sessions with live audiences and sometimes offer reflections at the end of the story. We visit families, host diverse audiences, to give you a taste of the digital version of the practice of fireplace storytelling by grannies, aunties and uncles. A lot of the episodes are narrated in English but some are told in their original languages, with a short summary of the story in English at the end. All songs are left in their original languages. This podcast aims to document and preserve the rich culture of oral storytelling by Africans in so many different nations.
