In Conversation with Wale Lawal

On this episode, I have a conversation with Wale Lawal, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Republic. The Republic is a magazine and platform of economic and political commentary, criticism and cultural discourse. In this conversation, we focus on the politics of knowledge creation, the process of studying and writing about Nigeria, and the transformative power of knowledge and writing.
