Although the show is no longer running, it still has a substantial following online across all social groups and is a valuable source of information and education on social and political developments in Ghana and Africa.
Commenting on the inclusion of Time With David on the AkooBooks Audio platform, Ama Dadson, Founder & CEO said, “signing Time With David onto our platform is a great coup for us. It enriches and deepens the diversity available on our platform, affording listeners interesting and educative conversations.
