How is the coronavirus pandemic affecting the advertising and marketing worlds? That’s what Gareth discusses with Sean Donovan. As the President in Asia for TBWA – known for disruptive ideas that locate and involve brands in culture, giving them a larger share of the future – Sean definitely knows more than a thing or two about this.
20.05.20 Pt 2 – Decimal Dan was around in a rather different time, and his maths wasn’t great. When you are on Earth, the aim is to just win at all costs. If you are going to die, don’t do it in the Eastern Cape, you literally have to stare death in the face in hospital. And Joe Cimino joins us to talk about finance troubleshooting post lockdown.
20.05.20 Pt 1 – Joe Rogan has proven to be the most magnetic figure in the information game, and he just made bank. The nature of routine is good for you, especially in lockdown. Gotham is fantastic trash. We’ve all had one rich person who we just visited for their video games or pay per view television access haven’t we? Tupperware tops and bottoms seem to get raptured separately… very annoying!
As Covid-19 has engulfed the world, an interesting observation to make has been the different approaches taken to thwart the threat of the pandemic. With a documented global history of male bias when selecting leaders, should we be looking to re-address the role of women in leadership? There’s evidence to suggest female Presidents and Prime Ministers have dealt with large scale challenges far better than their male counterparts in the last half century. From Thatcher to Merkel, from Ardern to Ing-Wen… this may be the time for feminine leadership to be given its big break.
19.05.20 Pt 2 – If you can communicate effectively, there’s no reason you can’t get two boyfriends during lockdown. Don’t run with a mask, you might die.

Blind History returns… this week we feature Genghis Khan.
19.05.20 Pt 1 – Having kids in lockdown is exhausting because of the incessant cooking. If you could just take a pill instead of needing food, would you?

18.05.20 Pt 2 – If you are a cat owner, you know they don’t go in the rain. It’s important to note in South Africa that the word coconut means two things… we love ‘Jaboolaani’. Are you a neanderthal if you make a bad cup of tea? And in news of saliva and zol, NDZ is now sliding into DMs on Twitter.
18.05.20 Pt 1 – Unless there’s cat vomit on your webinar, it’s not great viewing. Chequebooks are ridiculous aren’t they, it’s 2020! Gareth might buy the Pope’s car… bless him. You can socially distance and still preach the good word. And do Cubans just call them cigars?
15.05.20 Pt 2 – OnlyFans is changing the lives of humans all over the world… nudes are a goldmine! Is it easier to work with no kids? Leigh-Ann is adored by fans, find out just how much. Booze will be sold by surname apparently, get your lists in now to friends with surnames starting with an A. The gospel for lockdown is to help where you can.
15.05.20 Pt 1 – Siya believes he deserves to sit in a dark room and listen to Stevie Wonder if he wants to. Cardi B might be the Oracle, she knew this pandemic was real. How do you say the Q in a Xhosa word? And e-commerce is finally wide open in lockdown.
