Podcast: Google’s Mich Atagana on reflecting everyday Africans online

Andile Masuku hosts Google South Africa’s Mich Atagana in this episode of the Africa Tech Roundup podcast on her views on everyday Africans online.

This super-chill conversation, taped at the fringes of Africa Tech Summit 2018, features Google South Africa’s Head of Communications and Public Affairs, Mich Atagana.

Mich is an exceedingly well-traveled former-journalist who, as Editor of Memeburn and Ventureburn, previously covered tech and startups on the continent.

Mich was a GSMA Global Mobile Awards judge for 4 years (from 2014 to 2017), and also formerly penned a column for CNN which featured insight about leading tech companies around the world.

In this chat with Andile Masuku, Mich reveals how Google is working to ensure that Africans coming online – as access to the internet improves – are equipped with relevant educational resources to help them thrive in digital terms, and are served with content that reflects their world.

Look out for some fun cameos in this episode.
