Almost half a year ago, Dutch radio host Thomas van Vliet called me to ask me some questions about my stay in Kenya. This morning in his radio show 'Fris!', he invited me on his programme to get an update: which parts of Eastern Africa have I visited in the last couple of months? Do I like to chew khat by now? And what is it like to camp in the territory of wild Mount Kenya elephants? I answer all these (and some more) questions in the 15 minute interview - you can listen to the conversation (in Dutch) via this link.
Radio host Thomas van Vliet asked me some questions about Kenya this morning, in his NPO Radio 1 show called 'Fris!'. We talked for about fifteen minutes about life in Nairobi, politics, photography, our flooded apartment and my work! You can listen to the interview through this link. For the non-Dutchies: NPO Radio 1 is the biggest news and sports radio station of The Netherlands, and also my previous employer. And so this interview is in Dutch as well.. Sorry about that!
At Dutch public radio station NPO Radio 1, I'm responsible for 'visual radio': the regular radio stream, but with added visuals. Apart from showing imagery and additional video footage, we capture what's happening in the radio station's studio. More and more, people are getting used to the fact that radio anno 2017 isn't audio only. That's also visible (no pun intended) if you take a look at this video column of comedian Pieter Derks, uploaded by Radio 1 programme De Nieuws BV. The small fragment has become a new milestone in the station's online history: it reached more than 6.5 million people.
