Straight up interviews from The Gareth Cliff Show on CliffCentral.com - without any interruptions.
Ian Goldin is a professor and globalist at Oxford University, but he’s also a South African who served in the Development Bank during the Mandela years. He and Gareth Cliff discuss his book, RESCUE, and argue about big government, the ways the pandemic could change the world for better or worse, and whether anyone handled COVID well at all.
What is hope during times of crisis? Is it passion? Perseverance and grit? Or faith? And how do we look beyond the current situation to inspire and acknowledge others? Should we look to the bravery and resilience of others, to hold each other strong? Gareth and Jon Foster-Pedley, Dean and Director of Henley Business School in Africa, have a candid conversation about hope being the new currency.
Greg Ellis is a star of the stage, the screen and the digital world. He has sung for the Queen, starred in Pirates of the Caribbean and Titanic, and even voiced some of your favourite video game characters. The reason we wanted to speak to him was to hear his story - the story of a father caught in the expensive, unfair and cruel world of custody law. In this emotional discussion (wait until the end), Greg and Gareth discuss toxic masculinity, the war on competent masculinity, and the forces that are trying to destroy the family.
Kojo Baffoe is a writer, speaker, entrepreneur and self-proclaimed retired poet. His life story has been a book waiting to happen. He and Gareth have a candid conversation about his book, ‘Listen to Your Footsteps’, which dives into reflections on losing his mother as a toddler, being raised by his father, forming an identity, living as an immigrant, his struggles with substance abuse, and a whole lot more.
Dr Hanan Bushkin
The world is going through tremendous chaos and change, individuals and corporations are trying to adapt to this change with little or no guide or reference point. What is the public ‘bidding’ for? Emotional stability? Consistency? Answers? Hope? Leadership? A blueprint? An escape? Dr Hanan Bushkin - renowned psychologist and head of the Anxiety and Trauma Clinic - chats to Gareth about all this and more.
To know him is to like him… ProVerb is one of the warmest and talented people you’ll ever meet as a TV host and producer, musician and entrepreneur. But most recently he's given readers an unprecedented look into his life in his memoir, “The Book of ProVerb.” Gareth speaks to him about it, as he provides an honest account of his life’s hustle in the ebbs and flows of the entertainment industry, which he hopes will invoke the awareness of self in others.
