This podcast began as an audio version of my book, Mud Between Your Toes – a memoir about my life – a gay, white boy growing up during the 1970s Rhodesian Bush War. It has now evolved into a series of conversations with characters and personalities with stories to tell – occasionally on an African theme.

Season 03 - Episode 11 of MUD BETWEEN YOUR TOES CONVERSATIONS WITH PETE WOOD. Michela Wrong has been writing about Africa for the last 2 decades, reporting for Reuters, the BBC and the FT. She’s the author of 5 books about Africa, including : In the Footsteps of Mr Kurtz, a fascinating and extremely readable account about the Zairean dictator, Mobutu Sese Seko.

In this episode, I chat to her about the state of Africa and of course, her latest book, Do Not Disturb: which explores the controversial career of Paul Kagame and the legacy of the Rwandan genocide.
