This Sound Africa podcast is a story of a man and his mother. While it is set in the transition years between the old and the new South Africa, the story is a deeply personal narrative of how the past never goes away, but always travels with us. It is a story of grief and how a son tries to escape his own.


Sound Africa is supported by the Open Society Foundation’s Project for Independent Journalism and Hindenburg Systems.
Every two weeks another episode will be released here and on Soundafrica.org. For more, follow Sound Africa on Facebook, Twitter or listen to all its documentaries on iTunes, Soundcloud or the Sound Africa website. You can also subscribe to the newsletter.
