One can only spend so many evenings listening to interesting people telling interesting stories before you itch to find a way to share them with a larger audience. Thus this podcast, sponsored by the Darla Moore School of Business, was born.
Each half-hour (or so) episode focuses on a different facet of doing business and living in Kigali from an expat’s perspective. Before delving into each episode’s topic, a friend — who is a correspondent for Reuters — and I would talk about Rwanda’s current events in a segment we facetiously called ‘The News in Sixty.”
This podcast was a labor of love for me, and would’ve seen more episodes if my time in Rwanda hadn’t come to an end. It is, if in my mind alone, still categorized as “On Hiatus.”
The Arresting Development blog, which began simply as catalog to the podcast, gained popularity when I introduced ‘Morning Links,’ a daily news roundup. Morning Links provided readers with a fun and informative mix of stories from Rwanda and around the world to be enjoyed with their morning coffee. I compiled Morning Links nearly every weekday for two years because of their popularity. In fact, one major American NGO in Kigali listed the blog as an informational resource in its handbook for new employees.
