The podcast titled “Au pays des Sao” takes listeners on a journey through the family life of Bintou, a young Chadian mother. A nurse, Bintou is married to Kouma. After their daughter, Zara, is born, the couple decides to move into Kouma’s family residence, to enable them save money to be able to buy their own house. This decision raises unexpected questions across the entire family. Between her baby and her marital life, constant criticism from her mother-in law, her job at the health centre and her relations with the flamboyant customers who visit the family breakfast shop, Bintou’s hands are full.
