Lorraine Maisel gets the Tuesday show off to a rollicking start. Siya patents the ‘appraisal by Maisel’ as the team’s looks are assessed. Theresa May’s dancing and the empty promises of politicians, Lorraine’s love for food TV shows, soap operas, then into the latest news and sport, plus a positive story from Siya.
Gareth explains the whole Brett Kavanaugh situation and the balance of power in the US and appointment of judges to the Supreme Court. Simba calls in from San Diego to add to the US discussions, Alyssa Milano has changed her tune around Bill Clinton, the people that walk on all fours is discussed, how towels could be bad for you, and the Nene situation gets a brief review.
Gareth talks about sounds, the ones you can’t hear and the ones you can. Siya is back from the death, Leigh-Ann is having a vomity sort of morning, Ben got a bit of Jesus in his weekend and Nolo has ‘this’ problem. The Bachelor South Africa is announced, which causes quite the furore in studio. The latest news, sport and finance from there.
What’s the most under represented colour in nature? Benedict calls in with a gory murder story, and Gareth and Ben discuss the treasure trove of content that is LinkedIn – and what an untapped resource it is of sensible, curious and sometimes dreary information. Casper de Vries joins us on the phone while travelling on the N1… still drowsy from his dose of Dormicum, and Donald Trump continues to embarrass people – this time by boarding Air Force One with a piece of paper stuck to his shoe. The horror! Plus, finding an emoji for losers.
Gareth is at his pioneering best as usual – doing a radio show from his car, or at least trying. The balance of the show is brought into question, and if there is now again just too much maleness to it. Ben has a stab at the news, but then brings it together with a weekend sports wrap that is much better.
Kofi Ofori-Boateng is an author, speaker, teacher and mentor who calls himself a “professional reminder”. In this discussion with Gareth they unpack the good and bad aspects of masculinity, violence, competition, and victim behaviour. Although controversial, Kofi reflects on straight-talking rather than coddling his audiences.
Simon Allison brings you the hottest current affairs on the African continent in this week’s Burning Platform – brought to you by Nando’s. There’s a wide array of stories, plus an interesting debate about the Trump administration that Simon and Gareth get into. Musician Sevven then drops by to talk about RADA, a non-profit company looking to inspire the nation and fight back against rape, alcohol and drug abuse.
Ben introduces you to a podcast series he just discovered that is very dark, cruel and twisted. More from the Peter Boghossian academic papers that are shining a light on the insanity of political correctness, the effects of lower testosterone, the price of oil and the theft of SA’s reserves. Then into the latest news and sport, but no Siya today.
Rosie Motene was outside the court as the #DrosRapist appeared before a judge for the first time. She and Gareth discuss the initial happenings and how political parties of course jumped on the bandwagon. The Springs monster, the upcoming Elton John movie, then Simba Gozo joins the team in studio. Simba is a model, actor, and motivational speaker, and plays a big role in debunking myths around Albinism.
Gareth reflects on the quality of the CliffCentral audience, and how things have evolved from the primitive podcast beginnings. Emotional reactions and how it holds people back in the wake of the Sasha Martinengo incident, and how people are obsessed with negativity. The latest in the news and sport from there, plus Siya’s positivity feature.
