Patrizio Buanne is an Austro-Italian baritone singer who continues to rise to fame on a worldwide scale. His musical talent was recognised quite early and at the age of just 11 he started performing in public. We get to know him on a more personal level…
04.11.19 Pt 2 – Are you a smoker and struggling to put the habit down? Leigh-Ann gives some very solid advice on smoking and the risks that come with it.

Listen in for some fascinating stories from the animal kingdom. Then, Italian singer Patrizio Buanne graces the team with his beautiful voice and shares his experiences in South Africa.
04.11.19 Pt 1 – Everyone is still buzzing after the weekend, with many stories to tell. We also have a special guest this morning. Mbulelo Thinta is a proper sports fan and he’s in to give everyone a well-rounded recap of what is arguably our greatest sporting weekend this year. Siya is faced with a minor dilemma, and found himself having to break in and out of his own house this weekend.
These days, it seems impossible to have a reasonable conversation with anyone who has a different opinion. Whether you’re online, in a classroom, an office, a town hall – or even just hoping to get through a family dinner with a stubborn relative. That’s why the release of Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay’s book, ‘How to Have Impossible Conversations: A Very Practical Guide’ is incredibly timely. Gareth interrogates the ideas and themes within the book as Peter chats to him via Skype from Portland, Oregon. This interview, much like the book, guides you through the straightforward, practical, conversational techniques necessary for every successful conversation – whether the issue is climate change, religious faith, gender identity, race, poverty, immigration, or gun control.
01.11.19 Pt 2 – We all know that Leigh-Ann has seen many things in her life, and as it turns out, that includes many snakes. She shares some of her stories with the team. Then, Siya has some crazy dating and relationship stories that he shares with the team. While on that topic, Gugu’s date on First Dates SA gets dissected frame by frame by his impecceble colleagues. Executive Producer of First Dates South Africa, Ed Worster, joins the conversation and gives us a glimpse behind the scenes of the trending dating show.
01.11.19 Pt 1 – Where are you watching the rugby this weekend? We have Ben Karpinski in studio to remind us of our big sporting weekend ahead and he gives us his expert analysis ahead of tomorrow’s final against England. Leigh-Ann is caught with her pants down in the CliffCentral lavatory today, and she couldn’t care less. Then, the crazy bar stories start rolling in… and it seems that Ben has been around a few blocks during his time.
31.10.19 Pt 2 – Kanthan Pillay and Dawie Scholtz join Gareth for some topical conversation. How easy do you think it is to make it in a country like the US, and is it the best place for anyone looking to make it big in any field? On the back of yesterday’s Budget speech, the two guests weigh in with their opinions, and, we hear how Dawie thinks we can create an equal society through wealth distribution.
31.10.19 Pt 1 – Do you ever stumble into a fragrance that reminds you of someone or a specific time in your life? Siya gets a bit emotional in studio based on a whiff he catches from Gugu. Speaking of Gugu, his date has finally hit the screens and the team – with the help of listeners – dive straight into it! Anthea pops her head into studio to chat about the Budget speech, and give us an expert analysis on things.
30.10.19 Pt 2 – Do you feel pressure to own the latest and best iPhone? The team chat about these devices as Apple announces that they will no longer support older versions in the very near future. There’s trouble in paradise for Duchess Meghan Markle and the royal family, and the team can’t help but get their dirty noses into it. Anthony Mederer from Taylor Blinds & Shutters is in studio – find out how the podcast Blind History came about and the process he and Gareth go through to come up with such riveting episodes.
30.10.19 Pt 1 – It would seem that Gord can’t do more than one thing at the same time, and he chose sleep over the team today. Leigh-Ann on the other hand is in today with her usual dose of humour. Are you a good host and do you like having people over at your place? Gareth reveals another side of himself… we’re not sure if he’ll ever have any of his friends coming to stay over after this. Then, the team get into the world of dating and Gareth seems to believe that he doesn’t have commitment phobia, but Gugu is not convinced.
