Should we care about what celebrities think? Especially if some of them go by the name Stormy Daniels, in the case of the pornstar who is suing President Trump? The team get into a conversation around this, using the lacklustre Oscar Awards this year. Then, CEO of Oneplan Health Insurance Michael Otten has some helpful tips to share.
There’s tons to talk about this morning as the team (sans Ben) discuss how March is the “Tuesday of the months”, the chainsaw-wielding attack on an athlete, and the Randburg shooting. Siya gets excited over his new set of unWired earphones, as well as the exciting interviews coming up on the #GCS.
South African trade union, Solidarity, has been in the headlines on several occasions as it negotiates on behalf of its members and attempts to protect workers’ rights. What goes on behind the headlines that grace the stories we read? Gareth chats to its Chief Executive Dr Dirk Hermann on his work and experience, leading the organisation.
There has been another ‘crime of passion’, or as the team discusses, a couple who seem to have decided death is better than divorce. A senior police person comes to the studios to see Gareth, the President wants all young people to vote, and Jen Su’s Oscar selfie game is stronger than ever. A man masturbates on a plane, a girl attracts thousands to a hotel for sex, and then Happy MaKhumalo Ngidi pops in to chat about all things Proudly South African.
Some moron tried to steal an Oscar at an awards after party. Siya gets taken to task about quoting RuPaul, a listener wants more from Mabale, and gullible people continue to be taken for a ride by manipulative pastors. Then your latest news, sport and dose of positivity for the day.
Are you a saver or a spender? Most of us are very much in the latter unfortunately, but how do we change this? The team tries to talk about the Oscars, but quickly lose interest. Facts about who actually owns the land in SA will not please the ANC and EFF. Gareth has a survey that proves South Africa is a nation of morons, and some other stories that start the week off in an informed way.
Siya is back from his Asian excursion and is bursting with stories from his travels. Gareth tries to decipher the Monday morning listener messages, the whole outbreak of listeriosis is linked to polony… then a brave man comes into studio to talk about a foul smell downstairs. The latest in news, sport and finance – plus Siya’s return to positivity.
Ivo Vegter steps in for Justice Malala on the Burning Platform and has some very interesting insights on Cyril Ramaphosa. He is no praise singer of the new president, and makes for some compelling listening. Toby Shapshak, Liz Ogumbo and George Mienie then form an unlikely panel for all things fashion, technology and motoring. All fields that cross over beautifully for a pre-weekend conversation.
Ben gets the weekend going with some R Kelly. A strange choice, but it makes sense which then leads into a talk about Amy Schumer and how if you don’t like her, you must not like women. Mabz brings you the latest in news, which is always a spin of insanity mostly… then Ben recaps the sport to round off the week.
Kagiso Lediga is a tremendously talented comedian, television and film producer and director. A regular at CliffCentral.com, Kagiso stops by to talk to Gareth about a range of fascinating issues – comparing local comedians to international ones, his conversations with important filmmakers, and the things he is motivated by. It’s funny, insightful and real.
