The Pan-African Hour: Journey to East Africa (Feb 9, 2011)

We start our adventure with Geeves and Dan Forth aboard an airplane heading to a mysterious fabulous party, when suddenly their plane is shot down and they crash land in Uganda, where they are greeted by a Jewish village and entertained with music. The villagers give them some robotic donkeys to ride and they set off across East Africa, encountering many people, from friendly boat captains to MIA, searching for a way back to Canada. Along the way they hear lots of great music from Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Mozambique and Malawi.
