About This Show
CKIZA (swahili for listen) is podcast focused on the idea of home for Africans living in the diaspora. We feature individuals who are from or drawn to the continent and showcase the ways they are redefining the African narrative.

The term “cultural preservation” often comes up when one discusses the effects of modernization on the African continent. What good does it serve us to preserve traditions? Similarly, the value that each generation places on the past is constantly evolving. What aspects of our culture should we abolish, what should we keep?
This week, we attempt to answer these questions via the documentary A House Without Snakes by Daniel Koehler. As per The Atlantic, the film is a moving depiction of a centuries-old culture on the front lines of modernization. It observes the life of two Botswana Bushmen and the challenges they face reconciling the past, present and future.
