People and Parity

The second episode in this podcast series about the unique relationship between Scotland and Malawi, exploring what partnership really means.

Hazel and Chimzy chat with comedian Daliso Chaponda, members of the Malawi and Scotland Partnership Andrew Namakhoma and Linda Dembo, Scot settled in Malawi Reverand Kenneth Ross, and Widlife and Environmental Society of Malawi volunteer Lindsey MacDonald.

Can a partnership ever be equal when one country is so rich and another so poor?

Kenneth Ross- “The way the global economy is slanted, it tends to be that the power and resources are in the global north. Anyone who is responding from the global south just has to dance to the tune, that is set by their all-powerful partner” 

Andrew Namakhoma- “The challenge that I normally see is that we only look at money as the only valuable thing that people have”

About the Podcast

People to People podcast
Exploring the Unique Partnership between Scotland and Malawi
We're exploring International Partnerships by having People to People conversations. As a Scot and a Malawian, we're particularly looking at the friendship between Scotland and Malawi. We chat about climate justice, gender, equality, COVID, privilege, history, farming and the future, oh... and MANGOES! Everyone wants to tell us how good Mangoes taste in Malawi. An important and complicated conversation filled with laughter, respect and warm-hearted love.

How can you have an equal partnership when one country is so rich and the other is so poor? If we recognise our privilege- what happens next? What does Restorative Climate Justice actually mean? Can you really grow all your family needs in a quarter acre? How has the pandemic changed our partnerships? How can friendship help protect the Lillian's Lovebird?

We want to include as many people as possible in the conversation.
