Curious Things Mentioned During The Episode

Tim Butcher | The Curious Worldview Podcast #147

Tim Butcher returns to the podcast with another incredible journey through an African nation.

The first time Tim appeared he spoke about his adventures through the Congo, weaving a story of an incredibly rich and beautiful country that is nonetheless un-developing. 

It remains easily one of my favourite episodes I’ve ever had the privilege to record. 

Tim, this time around takes us through his month long journey through Liberia and Sierre Leone. He wrote a book about it called Chasing The Devil, and as the title alludes, a big part of the journey was trying to come to terms with the voodoo, black magic and devil worship that he encounters along the way. 

Much like his Congo trip, Tim again is journeying in the footsteps of a great writer who had gone before him. In the case of Liberia it is the famous author and journalists, Graham Greene.
