13.12.19 Pt 2 – Another day, another car folly as Siya has to drive up his first ramp – did he do it? Boris Johnson may very well have Elmo negotiating Brexit. Dan Wells, Eskom se Push app founder tells us how his Afrikaans work colleagues inspired the technology which helps us track when darkness will visit us. Viva the geeks! Then George Mienie tells us what the vehicle protocol is in a flood.
13.12.19 Pt 1 – It’s Gugu’s last day… did he learn anything while at CliffCentral? What’s certain is that he will be missed, HEY BOET! It’s Christmas time – who’s doing it right, hedonist Dan Bilzerian or the second coming of Jesus, Siya Sangweni – the fabulous king of the meek. ‘Bumble’ Ben is back and he swiped left – turns out society and sewage have more in common than you’d think. And is there glitter in the ‘mot’ of the stripper?
12.12.19 Pt 2 – Dumo Denga is in studio, along with Kanthan Pillay, and they have a discussion about the state of SAA and the airline going into business rescue. The lights have been off more times than they’ve been on for many South Africans with the current load shedding schedule – the team weigh in on the current state of SA, as well as the loss of cell signal when the power is turned off.
12.12.19 Pt 1 – We’ve reached an era where referring to people as a chick or a girl is sometimes frowned upon, and referring to someone as a they is the new normal. The team unpack this and attempt to make sense of it. There’s a lot of virtue signaling going around, and a character named Susan from Houghton takes a lot of flack from the team, bearing the sins of all white people. Do you still have that stash of CDs from the previous decade? Well it may be worth hanging on to them.
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.
