Podcast Special II

Once again, we’ve pulled together some of our best Web-only podcasts for your listening pleasure. To start off with, we join veteran reporter Marika Partridge on the Washington Mall for highlights from the astounding Kenyan edition of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Then, producer Sam Backer explores the history of the elusive South African producer DJ Spoko in his first-ever international interview. Finally, Banning Eyre takes us back to Madagascar, where we hear the guitar-heavy style of “Beko and Blues.”
