The team wrap their heads around a grandmother who gave birth to her own granddaughter. Confusing? Listen in to find out more.

29.03.19 Pt 2 – Just how much poo is too much poo? Well the results are coming in and it’s not pretty.

George Mienie then brings the week to a close with the latest from the world of motoring.

27.03.19 Pt 2 – The power may be back on in SA, but the Eskom woes are still very much a big talking point. Cardi B has attracted some bad press from her stripper days, xenophobia in KZN, and a catch-up on Brexit. Daniel Baron then drops by to talk about how one of his songs looks to have been plagiarised by David Guetta. Does he have a case? He and Gareth discuss this, along with his recent engagement to the love of his life.
Gareth presents a wonderfully colourful segment on privilege, and how it somehow washes away the wrongs of people in with the ‘right’ mob. The Jussie Smollett incident lies in the middle of this, plus the insanity of the Democrats in America and all who back their backward thinking. The latest in the top news headlines, Ben on the sport, then Siya wraps up the hour with a touch of positivity.
