11.12.19 Pt 2 – Do you have the kind of fart that can put an insect down? Well there is a man on the African continent who possesses this level of anal potency. We all know how performance-enhancing drugs are perceived in sports, but what would steroid Olympics look like, and how high could these superhumans jump? Gareth is a big supporter of this unhinged concept. Then, Leigh-Ann delivers horrific news for all vegans out there. Finally Lee-Ann Liebenberg and her husband Nicky Van Der Walt join us in studio to chat about their CBD oil venture, and all the benefits that can be derived from it.
11.12.19 Pt 1 – Everyone is quite blissful today as the sun has graced the local sky for the first time in eight days. In more serious news, a doctor is in hot water for the death of two children and maiming others. Dr Jonathan Witt weighs in on this unfortunate incident, bringing a different perspective to the situation. Then, the team chat to Ted Blom, an independent energy analyst, about the current situation around Eskom plunging the country into darkness for hours at a time. Ted sheds some great insight on this, and what the future of our electricity looks like.
10.12.19 Pt 2 – Siya’s back and he brings with him the President’s newsletter, which he delightfully reads out for everyone. With all the bailouts taking place in SA, the team have a discussion about the current state of the country, while in typical GCS fashion, take the piss out of government officials. And finally, we’ve skipped stage 5 of Eskom’s load shedding and dived head first into stage 6 – but what does this actually mean?
10.12.19 Pt 1 – With the unyielding rain some parts of SA have been subjected to, what does one really do in a flood situation? The team throw some polarising ideas around. Do you know what the protocol is when your Uber incurs damage during your trip? Do you cancel the trip and hail another, or do you wait until the problem is resolved? Siya found himself in such a tight spot recently. Then, the team chat about survival packs in case of an emergency and Gareth goes through the list in his.
09.12.19 Pt 2 – Art comes in many forms and people are clearly willing to pay a fortune for even the ‘stupid’ art. The team has a good laugh about a banana that sold as art. Zozibini Tunzi has been crowned Miss Universe, and Gugu who met her recently has some huge regrets. Then, comedian John Vlismas joins the team… this time to show off his smarter side as a Henley Business School affiliate.
09.12.19 Pt 1 – The team are grateful to have made it to work alive this morning with the wild rains in Johannesburg. Siya on the other hand wasn’t so fortunate. Leigh-Ann has had quite a busy weekend rescuing cats and rabbits, as one would. Then, Gugu sings for Anthea and it doesn’t sound too great.
06.12.19 Pt 2 – Justin Timberlake has made news, but not for the right reasons. Rumours of infidelity with a co-star (including pictures) have hit the tabloids, and the team has a vote-off based on the two women’s physical appearances, to decide whether or not he was justified. Meanwhile, Leigh-Ann is back at it again with her useful tips and interesting facts to share. Then, we’re joined in studio by Helen Gautschi from DNAlysis Biotechnology to tell us about all the benefits of knowing your DNA – and how it could improve your life.
06.12.19 Pt 1 – It’s a full house today, and the weekend vibe is in full swing. In the midst of all this chaos the team realise that the studio may have other forms of life existing in it. Have you made those plans for Christmas and New Year’s Eve? Siya gives everyone a timely countdown to the big days. The witchcraft conversation is back, and our intern Mbulelo knows a thing or two about this area of life.
What does it take to be one of the world’s greatest? Famed tennis player Johan Kriek is one who knows all about this. Gareth gets inside the mind of the South African-born, former top professional tennis player, ATP world ranking #7, # 2-time Australian Open Champion and South African Sport Hall of Fame Member since 2007. These days you can find him running the Johan Kriek Tennis Academy as a proud husband and father, as he explains in this interview recorded via Skype.
On the back of his recent announcement of retiring as sub-Saharan African CEO of the storied investment banking group Goldman Sachs, Gareth chats to Colin Coleman about some of the critical steps he’s taken that he have led him to the point of having his eyes now set on lecturing at Yale University. As one of SA’s most prominent investment bankers, he details how his liberal upbringing and being involved in the anti-Apartheid movement influenced his work in changing the nation’s economy over the past few years.
