Word, Sound



In this episode, Ken and Dan are joined by Ken’s college friend Andy Manoff, who spent a year in Ethopia and ended up teaching girls to play basketball. Not a euphemism. Also, Andy has a story about reading a book near an NBA player, which leads to a larger discussion of NBA books/movies (including this fine book by Alexander Wolff).





Also, Dan finds out he has a surprising number of songs with “Africa” in the title:

“Ball of Fire” - Israel Vibration
“African Children” - Aswad
“Africa Center of the World” - Fela Kuti
“African Walk (Zamunda)” - Madlib
“African Woman” - Burning Spear
“Thank You For Talkin’ To Me Africa” - Sly and the Family Stone
