I speak with Lagos, Nigeria based journalist Alexis Okeowo about the effect of #BringBackOurGirls on Nigerian politics, ┬áNigerian civil society, and — of course — on the search for the girls.

It’s a great conversation, with interesting diversions about the oddities of First Lady Patience Jonathan, the origins of the hashtag, and how the kidnapping affected the recent World Economic Forum held in Nigeria. Enjoy!
