19.03.19 Pt 2 – Rachel Kolisi, wife of Springbok captain Siya, is in the news for the way she’s been ranting on social media around the women who contact her husband.

18.03.19 Pt 1 – Gareth comes back from a wonderful week in Europe to a whole bunch of loadshedding.

15.03.19 Pt 2 – Old people should not operate chainsaws and Leigh-Ann has a story to prove this. The Karoo lion is finally caught after being on the loose for a month. Dave Chappelle on racism, a 3D ear, then George Mienie wraps up the week with the latest from the world of cars.
15.03.19 Pt 1 – Ben and Leigh-Ann didn’t get to watch The Bachelor last night because of loadshedding, and with that really struggle to find some positive stories for a Friday.

14.03.19 Pt 2 – It seems the road to 8 May is becoming bumpy and full of twists and turns. Siya, Phumi and Kanthan take a look at the week’s biggest and hottest political stories – from IFP’s manifesto to President Ramaphosa’s trip to Zimbabwe.
14.03.19 Pt 1 – While some of the world was freaking out over Instagram and Facebook being down last night, there were still other serious and tragic things happening – like Gugu Ncube’s protest.
