Episode 18

Ever wondered if your urine could help with food security in Africa? We go to Malawi this week to hear how a ‘magic liquid’ is helping farmers cope with the high cost of synthetic fertilisers, while keeping the marketplaces cleaner and smelling fresher.

And, we hear from science research gurus Fredros Okumu and Alice Matimba about Your Digital Mentor Podcast, which explores mentoring, research, and career development.

Want to know more about what’s happening in science in Africa? Send us your questions and we’ll find an expert to answer them — text or voice message WhatsApp +254799042513.
