Helen Zille may have stepped down as the Premier of the Western Cape after two five-year terms and retired from politics, but she is nowhere close to slowing down. She’s still right in the thick of continuing to make and get involved in societal change for the better. She chats to Gareth about her new position at the South African Institute of Race Relations (IRR) as a senior policy fellow, and how she’s navigating these tricky times we’re in. No topic is left untouched, from victimhood culture, why she reckons ‘wokeness’ is about white people, Twitter, who she stills keeps up with at the Democratic Alliance (DA), and why she believes the most dangerous people in society are the ones who think they’ve found the truth.
08.08.19 Pt 2 – India may be a third world nation, but Gareth believes with certainty that it’s a sleeping giant and a force to look out for. The team then discuss the issue on party funding in SA politics and whether it should be permitted.
08.08.19 Pt 1 – As December approaches, have you made holiday reservations and booked your flights? Depending on who you ask, it may be too late. When was the last time you were involved in a physical fight, and is it really worth it? Gugu has an interesting theory on this. The conversation continues on the issue of police cracking down on foreign-owned shops selling counterfeit goods in the Joburg CBD. But who’s to blame… the buyer or the seller?
07.08.19 Pt 2 – Ever wondered what it’s like to kick a head around? Well, the technicalities and limitations are discussed and are quite hilarious. A real heroine in studio this morning, Sam Stewart has seen it all… from an abusive childhood, a failed marriage and even cancer. She has a real story to tell!
07.08.19 Pt 1 – Gord isn’t in this morning, and Gugu believes fat people struggle waking up early like everyone else. How old is too old to throw a birthday party? Gareth gets invited to an 85th. Then, Siya musters up the courage to ask Gareth for a pay raise.
She’s taught us everything, from how to make a nifty loadshedding survival kit, to how to make a braai pie on her YouTube video series. She a ‘meisie’ who hails from Somerset West, South Africa… and describes meeting her best friend Marianne in the line at the tuckshop as one of her most vivid childhood memories (Marianne got a hot dog and she got a packet of Nik Naks, if you’d like to know). She’s South Africa’s very own online star and DIY queen and host of season three of ‘Most Ridiculous’ – it’s Suzelle DIY!
06.08.19 Pt 2 – Talk about an “oopsie!”… a crashed Israeli Lunar Lander has spilled tardigrades on the moon. Leigh-Ann brings you news around that, and some other pressing stories. The team discuss how video games and mental illness actually aren’t to blame with most of the recent mass shootings in the US. And, given that she’s already taught us so much, from how to make a nifty loadshedding survival kit, to how to make a braai pie on her YouTube video series – it only makes sense that SuzelleDIY also teaches us about the most ridiculous! She pops in for a visit to talk about her new show.
06.08.19 Pt 1 – Siya’s back at work after a wild weekend in Durban, and has some stories to tell. What would you be willing to give to continue having orgasms? Well the team would do pretty much anything. Gareth gives some free advice on three things you can do to avoid being poor… but are they really practical?
05.08.19 Pt 2 – After the horrific mass killings in the US this past weekend, the world has been left reeling. Leigh-Ann unpacks the story and the team get into it. What’s the strangest thing you’ve found under your bed, and how often do you clean under there? Gareth confesses to finding underwear… then, we’re joined by Nkosinathi Moshoana, General Manager of Primestars, to chat about youth development and educating our future leaders.
05.08.19 Pt 1 – Flax is back in studio again, he just can’t stay away. What are the things you do to make someone else’s day? Well, Gareth is upbeat this morning with a bucket full of positivity. We’ve all experienced it at least once… your first day at a new workplace. The team share their experiences. Android or iOS? We’re all loyal to one of these, but what keeps you devoted?
