We chat to singer/songwriter Anna Wolf – she gives us insights into her world… from the songwriting process to the challenges she faces as an artist. She also drops her tour dates. Then, we’re joined by wildlife photographer Marlon du Toit, who shares some riveting stories about his experiences in the wild – you don’t want to miss this!
27.09.19 Pt 1 – Since Ben left, Gareth couldn’t be bothered about sports of any kind and he makes that very clear. Siya is on a winning streak as he’s showed up to work for two weeks in a row without taking a Phuza Friday, and it doesn’t look like Gugu is willing to give his neighbours their house keys back anytime soon…
26.09.19 Pt 2 – We have Khaya Sithole in studio and make good headway in attempting to get to the root cause of the xenophobic attacks our country has seen lately, and the consequences thereof. The Greta Thunberg speech is still very topical and it gets dissected by the team. What are your thoughts on gender neutral Barbie dolls? It’s an interesting and polarising topic.
26.09.19 Pt 1 – It’s the morning after the second instalment of Pure Conversations, and the team are still buzzing and sharing their personal highlights. Siya is feeling like dry bones, and his excuse is a bit weak. Should we refer to transgender people as their birth gender or their chosen gender? We chat about all of this and more in studio.
25.09.19 Pt 2 – There’s a big event happening at CliffCentral today and Gareth shares all the details. We catch up with High Rob and he gives us a very entertaining and descriptive rundown of his escapades in Berlin. It turns out faecal bacteria lingers in the most unlikely places around us, including our office spaces. Comedian Simmi Areff pops in to chat about his one-man show, and the details of his sexually unfulfilling life. Then, a very unconventional poetry challenge takes place between him and Gord.
25.09.19 Pt 1 – Are you ready for action? Well it gets really heated in studio as Gareth and Gord get locked into a solid dispute. Then, Gugu has a go at Gord on a completely different topic and they get into a big pooing debate. Meanwhile back at the ranch, Siya has been hard at work practicing how he’s going to greet the Royal family in the unlikely event that he meets them.
23.09.19 Pt 2 – Gareth and Leigh-Ann try their hand at vernacular clicks and it doesn’t sound like it’s going to end well. Believe it or not, there’s a list of banned kiddie books… how bad could they be? Find out more as Leigh-Ann runs through the list. And, we have our very own Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi – along with her chaperone Kamo Rakharebe – in to chat to us about her new role and everything that comes with it.
23.09.19 Pt 1 – Don’t you just hate those people who insert themselves into every conversation and always have a better story to tell? Well you’re not alone, the team share their sentiments about these characters. What’s the strangest thing you’ve used to bribe someone? Apparently politicians will take anything from money to animals. Firefighters have their work cut out for them, but should pulling cats out of trees be part of their job description?
Donna Rachelson is a driven entrepreneur with a passion for helping women. She firmly believes in the power of inclusion, and chats to us about the position women find themselves in in the workplace, the struggles they face, and adaptations that could be in place. She wrote a book called ‘Personal Branding for Entrepreneurs’, and touches on that too in this compelling interview.
20.09.19 Pt 2 – Gareth has made the news but for very unconventional reasons. How do you feel about being rated and being compelled to rate everything you do? This rating culture is not very popular in studio, find out why. Leigh-Ann tells a story which only proves that being polite goes a long way. Author Donna Rachelson joins us in studio to chat about the role of women in the workplace, how they fit in, as well as the struggles they face in what’s traditionally a man’s world… and of course, the reasons behind this.
