In Episode 11 I caught up with Ismaila Alfa. If you don’t recognize his face (his beard is coming in very nicely), you almost certainly recognize his voice. Ismaila has worn many hats as a communicator and artist, and currently hosts Up To Speed weekdays from 3-6pm on CBC Radio One 89.3 FM / 990 AM.  We talked about his days in pioneering Winnipeg-based rap group, Frēk Shō, what new projects he’s working on, and the importance of conversation and getting to the stories that really matter.
