Afropop Worldwide's Wills Glasspiegel has put together Nollywood: Nigeria's Mirror — an extensive radio documentary on the multifaceted character and identity of the Nigerian film industry. The show offers insight into the "intricacies and eccentricities of Nollywood's past and future" with help from scholars Jonathan Haynes and Onookome Okome, as well as Chris Kirkley of Sahel Sounds. Wills kindly offered us a list of the most Okayafrica-relevant chapters of his show:
