TUWOG Update

Actually, we have two new microphones but one was DOA and so, we thank the gods for the one that didn’t rush to break. I’m working on naming it after one of the members of So Solid Crew.


Thanks ever so much for sticking with the podcast so far. Thank you for listening and sharing and leaving reviews, tweeting and sending me very constructive feedback, loves it!

One of the reviews (thank you Temitayo) came through yesterday at a time when I was literally pulling my hair out, asking but-who-sent-me and beating myself up as I usually do. Listennnnnn from network issues causing an end to an interview with one of my guests five times in less than 30 minutes(!) to the builders that have turned my apartment/office into dust and everything else going belly up in-between, I really was about to lose my rag. That you said you are looking forward to more episodes meant that I’m not roaming mad, *you* send me. So, thank you.

Thank you also to Aisha, my accountability partner; Mzswags for being a day one listener and Tunmise for sitting through even the lengthiest of edits 🙌🏾 Thank you also FayFay for turning around my impossible edit tasks without complaint and for always humouring me when I send longwinded essays about podcasting - as if her day wasn’t swamped enough already.

So, no guest today because I want to get all my ducks in a row but that doesn’t mean I am disappearing again. No sah. I’ve been taping, I’ve been testing equipment as they arrive and backup options for remote recordings and from next week, TUWOG will be as reliable as the pencil I use to stencil in my eyebrows 😅

About the Podcast

The Unsullied with Oreka Godis
TUWOG and the archetypes of success.
On TUWOG (The Unsullied with Oreka Godis) we have conversations with people of African descent, swap origin stories, cultural challenges, shifting belief systems, explore the vices and crutches that define us, recommended reading and recipes that shape (subjective) success.

‪Recorded in Lagos, Nigeria‬, with each guest, we explicitly tuck into family and how ‘They F*** You Up (a la Oliver James) ambition, love, sex, drugs, social media, faith, money, power and lessons learned. We look from experiences that make us a little less naive to decisions that make us more childlike.

TUWOG explores transitioning through career depression, financial security, losing hope, finding unexpected gifts in moments that mean everything and nothing at all. Wanting to give up most of the time, winning the war some of the time, chalking up and dusting down battle lines of personal Vietnam’s, giving them hell and most importantly, finding out your definition of unsullied.
