I’ve been experimenting recently with a kind of Mark Charmer Radio format. This generally involves me sitting in a room with someone I find interesting, and talking with them for just under an hour. The first two episodes were with Thomas Bjelkeman and Vinay Gupta (on various topics) and with my dad, Ken Charmer (on music and production).

Last week I recorded the third, here in the Akvo Amsterdam office with Mark Tiele Westra. Mark was fresh back from a trip to Ghana where he had been seeing first hand how Akvo FLOW is being adopted in West Africa. We talk about his role, what FLOW is designed to do and how it’s been evolving. I hope it’s of interest to people.
