Mmathapelo Thobejane, an activist and graduate from the Changing Practice course, produced a podcast on illegal chrome mining that is occurring in her community in Sekhukhune, South Africa. The podcast traces the story of this practice from the local community in Limpopo South Africa through entanglements with private companies to the exports overseas. The risks of this practice are felt disproportionately by impoverished communities desperate for income. The benefits are rewarded elsewhere to middle men investors. What is the transgressive learning that can come from listening to this?
