#6 - Steady kutaura taura: iva munhu anehana

Dzimwe nguva we randomly give details of the happenings in our lives innocently. Pane chakaipa here mukuudza vamwe zviri kuitika muhupenyu hwako? On the surface of it... No. Katori ka1 but sometimes it is not the wisest move. This is not to say munhu wese who shares their private lives with vamwe is doing it for the wrong reasons BUT it can become a regrettable situation especially if you do not calculate your moves well in consideration of where you are and who you are saying it to (eg kubasa and having a chat with work collegues). We look into that a bit more on this week's show...

#4 - Juggling chikoro nekuenda kuGraft

#4 - Juggling chikoro nekuenda kuGraft

The illusion that money presents while pursuing studies brings an interesting conundrum to the table. Kuenda kuchikoro often seems a waste concerning time and especially when looking at the cost (eg in the case of tertiary education such as university which can be very expensive). The immediate benefit is never quite apparent just as much as the eventual one. Izvi zvinokonzera drop outs, pursuing other 'fun' careers, not focusing on studies or getting involved in get-rich-quick schemes. If you are faced with the choice, before making your decision, consider that school and work CAN be balanced albeit with some self-sacrifice. Hard to do, yes! Doable, yes! Saka chimboteererai tirumane nzeve. Zano marairanwa!

#3 - Zim churches in the diaspora

On this week's P.Y.G pod the boys discuss Zimbabwean churches outside Zim as a subject topic following recent media reports!

Zimbabwean churches in the diaspora are great places to nurture our spiritual growth, fellowship with others and have a sense of community. On the odd occasion we do find that maChurch edu can become places where negativity is bred under the banner of competitiveness, makuhwa and the lot. So how does this come about? What can improve Zim churches in the diaspora? How do we as Zimbos facilitate such?

#1 - Ruvengo or Criticism?

So... Chyll & MJ are back with something new and different with that Zimbabwean inclination! Tanga tamborova... So what is the Passport yeGreen podcast about? It's about empowering each other as Zimbos nemazano especially out here in the diaspora where it can be very tough and challenging! We put issues concerning anything and everything about being Zimbabwean on the table through an engaging discussion picking the brain share knowledge, opinions and ideas. Some of these issues may be apparent and obvious to some, but many of us have gone through times where we needed a nudge to push us on to the right path. Zvinhu zvakaoma for many of us Zimbos and our input as a community world wide can build better Zimbos by the day. This may not be a music podcast but we do play some hot new Zim music here and there... because we can!!!! Enjoy...
