This episode was recorded in Khartoum, where we met, among many others, Tamer Abd Alkreem, anthropologist at the University of Khartoum, and Omnia Shawkat, co-funder of the Sudanese digital magazine Andarya. They talk about the plurality of identities shaped by the Nile in Sudan, the competing interests that people have on the river, and how they are represented in the media.
