Every Thursday I get an inbox alert that a new episode of Media Masters, a “series of extended one-to-one interviews with people at the top of the media game” with Paul Blanchard is available. Recent favourites include Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, and Mark Thompson, CEO of the New York Times. So even though I knew it would come, receiving a notification of an interview with Minna Salami last week was thrilling!
What I enjoy about Media Masters is how, while being an industry podcast, each interview also gets quite personal. So we covered a lot of ground in the interview, I spoke about my paternal grandmother, about the African marketplace, about whiteness and a lot about some of my great loves – writing, blogging and making sense of things.
Hi! I’m Minna Salami. I’m a writer, blogger, columnist, lecturer and speaker and the founder of the feminist blog, MsAfropolitan, which connects feminism to contemporary culture from an Africa-centred perspective. I’ve been listed alongside Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie as one of “twelve women changing the world” by ELLE and my work has been used as a resource and case study at universities around the world.
