A Kenyan Perspective

Today’s podcast has me interviewing a good friend of mine that I have known for years having worked at the same hospital. A consultant radiologist, she now lives and works in her native Kenya. Little news reports seemed to have come out of developing countries unless they have suffered devastating disasters. This interview hopefully will help to redress the balance in global storytelling.
