Special birthday celebration edition

Podcast interview

Today, May 25, 2024, is a milestone birthday. As part of my birthday celebrations, I am publishing a special edition of Heart of the Matter podcast.

We looked through the archives and found one surviving interview from the original Heart of the Matter which began life as a radio program.

The late Ron Lightbourne, the original host interviews me, Aderonke Bademosi Wilson and the audio engineer, Abimbola Bademosi. I had the privilege of interviewing Ron.

Different music. Different questions. Same DNA.
