Item 13: An African Food Podcast

Item 13: An African Food Podcast introduces listeners to African chefs and cuisine, from Uganda (Episode 37) to Liberia (Episode 36), and many points in between. Yorm Tagoe, the founder of esSense 13, "a platform dedicated to raising the profile of African food globally," hosts the show. She named it after the Ghanaian slang term that "refers to food/snacks usually following a meeting or program of events," because "refreshments were typically the 13th item on a meeting agenda." Since its launch in 2018, the show has released more than three dozen episodes. The length of each episode ranges greatly, from about 15 minutes to more than an hour; and, based on the theme of the show, perhaps listeners can tune in as they prepare a meal (whether it is a quick bite or a longer cooking process). All installments are found under the Episodes tab of the site, and new listeners may also enjoy a collection of "audience favorites" linked on the Home tab (under Start Here!). New episodes are released every Tuesday, and listeners can also find the show (and subscribe) on Apple Podcasts and other popular podcast platforms.
