Episode 5: Meanwhile in the East

Updated: Jan 20, 2021

In this Episode we leave the West, and we find ourselves in the land of Mountains, Lakes and Volcanoes!

Travelling back in time we see the origins of the Luba empires. We see how their system of governance was so effective as to attract new joiners enabling the Empire to spread throughout central Africa.

We also meet the powerful Lunda Empires, and see how they grew to conquer the lands to south and east of the Luba.

For Episode 5 we have an amazing photo of Mount Nyiragongo taken back in 2014 granted by a friend of the podcast. You can really see the bubbling lava here and have some visuals associated with the awe inspiring landscape I mention in the podcast.
