Barry Bateman uttered some comments not so long ago regarding EFF leader Julius Malema. The Burning Platform team weigh in on his apology, and the stance Primedia has taken on this matter. The team also discuss the state of the DA, and what the future looks like for their leader Mmusi Maimane. Kanthan Pillay explains why we are buying oil from Arab countries and overlooking our neighbours, Angola and Nigeria. Brought to you by Nando’s.
17.10.19 Pt 2 – It seems our former president Jacob Zuma is playing victim and pulling the race card in his latest court appearance this week. The team discuss his countless court appeals and how much is enough. There have been some conspiracy theories around our national energy provider… is Eskom planning power cuts as part of a greater political agenda?
17.10.19 Pt 1 – We catch up with Gareth and Siya who are all the way in New York. Siya, as it turns out has been very busy and has some interesting first impressions of the Big Apple. Do you think we should be sympathising with criminals who commit crimes such as rape and murder, based on their asking for forgiveness and showing remorse? Well, we learn that Leigh-Ann would make a terrible judge in a court of law. Then, Ben gives us a dose of sporting news, with his predictions ahead of the big Rugby World Cup weekend.
16.10.19 – While Gareth and Siya are in New York learning more about international best practices in technology and online media… here is a replay of the epic conversation Gareth Cliff had with DJ Fresh, DJ Sbu, Tbo Touch, Robert Marawa and Trevor Gumbi – about the industry, their lives and so much more, in the first in our series of #PureConversations.
15.10.19 Pt 2 – Flax has purchased a new car and is considering naming it, but he says he’s very wary about giving it a name that it has to live up to. He would rather let it pick its own name. How many times should you attempt something and fail before finally walking away? The team talk about failed marriages and people who keep on going back – despite the writing being on the wall.
15.10.19 Pt 1 – Phumi, Gugu, and Flax are in studio today as Ben takes a second to get to know them better… and find out what they actually do outside of The Gareth Cliff Show. Flax flexes his more mature side once again, and much to everyone’s surprise, he has delivered two babies!
14.10.19 Pt 2 – We chat about making a Section 12J investment, and get more info from Grovest. Have you ever gone onto Netflix and just didn’t know what to watch? Well, someone thinks having a leisurely wank instead may just be the answer. The team chat about the reality of having a disabled child after a baby was born with three legs and two penises. And former Springbok coach, Nick Mallett’s niece (who’s a teacher in Cape Town), has been accused of having sex with her pupils – some of whom are underage. The team dive straight into it!
14.10.19 Pt 1 – Ben, Gugu and Leigh-Ann are handling things quite well today. They weigh in on the new Bachelor, and his merits on attraction. Have you ever been through a quarter-life crisis? Well, some may have missed that boat – but as the youngest member of the team, Gugu paints a picture of what this may be like. And Leigh-Ann sneakily attempts to steal sport away from Ben.
11.10.19 Pt 2 – Ben is finally in studio and we catch up with him and find out all he’s been up to – from new business ventures to breakups and heartbreaks. He also fills us in on his escapades with High Rob recently. Then, Jane chimes in with a string of overly suspicious compliments aimed at Ben, and in her own famous words; the “cat and snake” games have begun.
11.10.19 Pt 1 – The conversation gets interesting in studio as the team chat about transgender people, trans prisoners, and who should pay for such treatments. It’s another controversial conversation at CliffCentral. What’s that one food item that you just can’t stand? Well, Leigh-Ann, Gareth and tripe will never be found in the same room.
