The Fragmented Whole Podcast

Fragmented Whole (n.): Any entity navigating the fragments of broken systems, relationships, and geographies, while simultaneously striving to remain whole.

Conceptualized by host and executive producer, Amarachi Anakaraonye, in 2017, The Fragmented Whole, a bi-monthly podcast, explores how the brokenness we see in ourselves is reflected in the world around us. Through conversations with entrepreneurs, scholars, artists, and more, Amarachi investigates how the fragments of intergenerational and systemic trauma can be utilized to manifest individual and collective wholeness.
