It is amazing to finally see so many people embrace their creativity in Malawi. So many people are now venturing into blogging, vlogging, podcasting and many more creative mediums they can find. After sharing 5 bloggers from Malawi during the #WinterABC challenge, I felt to share 6 Malawian podcasts that I love. These are 6 Malawian podcasts I feel you need to get on already.
6 Malawian Podcasts to Get One
1. Twape’s Podcast
I personally resonate with this podcast a lot. On his podcast, Twape delves into topics we go through in a daring manner. He does it in the most vulnerable way possible, and though gets one to question their thoughts and behaviors, he does it in a respectful way. He is calm and collected, but he sparks room for conversation on issues we often do not talk about.

2. Kicking It With Black
Was excited when he Trevor AKA Black launched this. He had been talking about it on twitter for a while which made me anticipate it. In this podcast, Black gives a fresh view of the Malawian entertainment industry. He does it unapologetically. But you can tell that he is just someone passionate about seeing the industry grow and wanting to contribute to that growth. After meeting him just days ago, I am more excited to see the plans he has with his podcast implemented. He is on to something amazing.

5. On The Road With Dee
She’s one of my favorite bloggers, and she makes it on this list too. She explores on topics that she comes across on a daily basis and those she encounters when she herself is on the road. She talks about life, Christianity and creativity.

6. Fela in Malawi
A podcast hosted by Reuben Kumwenda. I love the tagline of it “Interesting conversations with interesting people” and it definitely lives up to it. It gives a platform to people doing huge things to openly share with others. It is also a learning moment for those that watch him. It drips of positivity, which is something you don’t get much. But like I said, you learn from different people in different fields.
