01.10.19 Pt 1 – Do you know where the names of the days of the week and months in the calendar originate from? Gareth’s been doing his homework and educates the team. We’ve all grown up under different circumstances, but the debate is whether or not hardship and struggle equips you better for life, or whether having a padded upbringing produces better adults.
30.09.19 Pt 2 – In other news, Disneyland is not as rosy as we all assumed, and Siya tells you why. Are you ready for some life-altering hacks? Leigh-Ann delivers on the jewels. We chat to the founder of #ImStaying, Jarette Petzer, and find out more about the Facebook group and what moved him to start such a movement. We’ve all heard some GCS team members attempting impersonations and different accents, but who does it best?
30.09.19 Pt 1 – Gareth spent some quality time at a strip club and schools, who’s never set foot in one Gugu about this side of life. Siya is counting down the days until his possible encounter with the royals, he’s even getting an outfit made for the occasion. The team get into a conversation about the obese and the overweight, and some tough love is handed out.
27.09.19 Pt 2 – How much trust do you have in Uber drivers, and have you had any bad experiences? Uber is releasing a new range of safety features for its users and Leigh-Ann has the scoop. 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.
