This week’s story comes from Jemma Prandial, We Don’t Do Catholics Here. It’s about a non-religious mission in Africa and how the volunteers there start to question their atheism when an Islamist insurgency starts to run through the country. Jemma is a humanist and novelist living in Kenya. She has been writing under various pseudonyms for many years and prefers to be anonymous and unrecognisable when writing. Other People’s Flowers is the podcast that showcases short stories, essays, and reportage. We’re the first podcast-based literary journal. People hardly read journals anymore so we hope you’ll listen instead.
