Tumi Morake’s still hanging out with the team. A Thursday means another look at the week’s biggest political stories – this time with editor of Business Day, Tim Cohen. And as if this all wasn’t enough, the team also discuss side-chicks, family drama, wills and so much more.
Our favourite comedy queen makes an appearance on the show this morning… catching up on her fabulous life, following the release of her new book, ‘And Then Mama Said’, Gareth and Siya catch up with friend to the show, Tumi Morake. Nothing but fun, lots of laughs and comments on some of the biggest news stories ensue!
What is liberialism? And how is liberalism in Africa? To answer these questions Gareth speaks to MP and President of the Africa Liberal Network, Stevens Mokgalapa, to learn more. With his background in working for the City of Tshwane and being actively involved in community development projects, there is a great wealth of knowledge for him to draw from.
Siya elaborates on what a gunt is, seeing as Gareth has a big one. Listener emails, the latest porn movie charts, and how an Aussie girl lost half her body weight thanks to bullying. Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla’s movie shines a light on political correctness, then Donald Chipumha comes into studio to talk My Kitchen Rules and his life in photography and food.
Is Movember still a thing? Gareth gets into the farce of people doing things for charity, but needing you to do the work for them. Still no Gord, Gareth then gets stuck into a wayward tweet from Ranjeni Munusamy about Donald Trump, and further into a tirade about race-baiting EFF members and gaining weight. The latest in news headlines, Ben on the sport, then into your positivity feature with Siya.
You know the name, you’ve probably listened to the podcast, but here’s the chance to the hear the story behind it all. With his roots planted in Riebeeckstad, Jacques Basson studied at Free State University and has since taken the world by storm – first in the corporate world and then as an entrepreneur. His fascination with business is what has lead him to host the Klipkouers podcast, weekly conversations with African impact makers. Get to know more about him here.
What is liberalism? And how is it in Africa? Gareth chats to the President of the Africa Liberal Network, Stevens Mokgalapa, to learn more. A heartfelt e-mail from a listener touches the team. Leigh-Ann brings odd stories of a runaway train in Australia and a restaurant that only caters for homeless people. Have you ever milked an almond? No, we’re asking you seriously. That’s the great note we end the second hour on.
The team discuss their morning ‘getting ready for work’ routines, from Leigh-Ann’s wine hangover bad wardrobe choices, to Siya’s 5 minute zombie moment, and Nolo’s daily outfit themes. Gareth has a bone to pick with an over the top guy he saw at the airport carrying a tiny, hideous, ornamental Louis Vuitton bag. Then, it’s onto the current news and Siya’s positivity feature. Nqobile Ngema (aka ‘Nkobile’) calls in at the last minute for an interesting conversation around Trump.
The false allegations against Brett Kavanaugh from his college days continue to be shown up as left wing activism. A chilling listener email around more harmful false accusations, the findings from the amazing H&M race reconciliation conference, and Graham calls in to add more perspective around race. Ben has some telling showbiz social commentary for you, and Gareth cried during an animated movie.
Leigh-Ann’s favourite day, Monday. The rest of the team aren’t as enthused but crack on anyway. Siya reaches out to an old flame, and it doesn’t go particularly well. South Africans’ TV watching habits, George Carlin’s final views on the world, then into your latest news and sport stories. Anthea presents the finance feature, and Siya’s positivity wraps it up from there.
