Welcome to

The podcast that asks the questions that matter to Africa

Made possible with a grant from the U.S. Department of State and the Seenfire Foundation.

The Podcast for Africa

Welcome to Limitless, the new podcast series that asks the questions that matter to Africa.

🎧 Does Africa have an image problem?

🎧 Can you teach entrepreneurship?

🎧 Does Black Lives Matter matter to Africa?

These are just some of the topics we’ll be tackling.

And we’re not looking for simple answers.

Just as Africa’s potential is limitless, so are the possible solutions to any challenges the continent faces.

During each podcast episode, we’ll be asking three very different guests to give their take on each question. This will come as no surprise but they don’t always agree.

Meet your host

The thirty episodes are hosted in English and French by Togolese American journalist, editor and entrepreneur Claude Grunitzky. He’s the founder of the media platform TRUE Africa and TRUE Africa University, a Pan-African learning community.

Our core production team is based out of Nairobi, Johannesburg, London, Paris and New York City. The production team is supported by a team of 10 Local Broadcast Ambassadors who are based in target countries on the continent.
