Brendan JACKast

A broadcast from different parts of South Africa. We meet various locals and visitors to our shores, mostly from the comedy and entertainment field. Topics are varied and unpredictable, including local goings-on, current world events, and how they impact on South Africa... all discussed by mostly opinionated and not-very-serious guests. (Although we have sent out meeting requests to Nobel Prize winners, but they're all too busy on Twitter to speak to us at the moment. Perhaps one day.)
