28.05.20 Pt 2 - Has the inept nature of the South African state changed leftist ideology and veneration of the ANC's government? Should the military be able to judge their own cases of egregious violence imposed upon the society? Dudu Myeni has finally been deemed to be a delinquent director, and she may never be a corporate head honcho again... significant or not?

07.05.20 Pt 2 - Xoli Mngambi and Jane Dutton have been forced to apologise for giving an opinion on eNCA about NDZ. Do apologies work in public? Is the public tired of mainstream media? Is the lockdown a classist social measure? What does flattening the curve actually mean?

What is the purpose of a lockdown during Covid-19? Is acting reasonably something which can be encouraged, and if so, which countries have done this? Are South African politicians capable of governing the laws they make? Will the death count be the correct metric to gauge the success of measures taken during the pandemic... we just don't know! Brought to you by Nando’s.

Special guest Russell Lamberti joins us this week and asks whether the lockdown in South Africa failed from day one? Is it immoral to prevent people from working? Can we trust the ANC to administer the R500 billion relief fund without being corrupt? The economy of South Africa is now on its last legs, can it survive the impact of state-imposed stunted economic activity? Is Cyril Ramaphosa being exposed as not fit for office?. Brought to you by Nando’s.

23.04.20 Pt 2 - How do we balance the tension between saving the economy vs saving the jobs of our citizenry? Should it be down to individuals to manage their own risk profile in the ending of lockdown and returning to work? Is the lockdown doomed from the start?

09.04.20 Pt 2 - Pesach when you are Hindu is an interesting one - especially if one of your children is Jewish. WHO will be shunned by America because it's so China-centric. What you want to be careful about is anyone in political power using creative language. Bernie Sanders was crushed by Trump more than Biden, he was always out of the race... back to the hippie centre maybe?

The best way to predict the future is to look at the past. Is there any chance of rebellion from the poor in South Africa if they are forced to comply with lockdown laws? What would this violent outbreak look like? We only have 3 ways of dealing with Covid-19, none are great but we must pick one and move forward... apathy is not a choice. Self-isolation might not be the best way to deal with coronavirus. Does China need to worry about a cold war against them from a technological and production standpoint post Covid-19? Will the rest of the world search for new centres of economic supply chains? Everyone seems to think the IMF is the next point of call for South Africa, just how true is this? Cyril Ramaphosa, the country is watching - your move! Brought to you by Nando’s.

02.04.20 Pt 2 - South Africa might be a decent country to live in after all, if you go by a queue at a shopping centre. The response to market factors at play in a crisis can be tricky, are street vendors less important than big chain stores? Ford is making ventilators... does this actually matter in the bigger picture? The media has a massive duty in reporting responsible and verified information in times of crisis, how do we ensure this happens? Waldimar Pelser details this for us. The ANC is still stealing, please don't let Covid-19 plaster over that, stay woke!

When you leave the intelligence services, can you just go back to a normal life? Public interest and national interest are always in a delicate relationship, but who manages it? South Africa is filled with racial tension - both now and historically. What happened during apartheid if you loved a person with a different skin colour? Moe Shaik gives us his take on the limitations he faced when he was the head of intelligence. His book, ‘The ANC Spy Bible’, is sure to have tongues in South Africa's power sanctums wagging for some time to come. Brought to you by Nando’s.

19.03.20 Pt 2 - Certain tribes are just better at cleaning their backside, let’s accept that. Is the rise of technocracies a threat to civil liberty? Is government intelligence run like James Bond runs his operation, or is it just a normal day job? Schabir Shaik - who loves golf - does not represent his whole family. And did Jacob Zuma's intelligence hand democracy as we know it to South Africans?
