    Matthew Mole [Musician/Nice Humble Guy]

    I spoke to the nicest guy I have ever met and world-class musician Matthew Mole. Hear us explore his worst songs he has ever written, how he fawns over the singing of cricketer AB de Villiers and how he is just a genuine human with so much respect for his craft and the people around him.

    Tats Nkonzo [Comedian]

    You know when you have been out of touch with a friend and then you connect again? Well this podcast is that. I hadn't spoken to Tats in years and on this podcast we shared his insightfulness, his silliness, stories of comedic journeys, how the Corona Virus is changing how we think and his great ability to be competitive especially at squash.

    Robby Collins Returns [Comedian]

    Simmi chats to Robby Collins about the ramifications of 'Cancel Culture' or if it, as a concept, should exist. We also speak about comedy, the lockdown and he plays his trumpet to the best of his ability. This is a really insightful and wholesome podcast.

    Stuart Goldsmith [Comedian and World Famous Podcaster]

    The podcast has gone full circle! The person that has inspired my podcast with his podcast is our featured guest. Stuart is not only a well-established comedian but his own podcast 'The Comedian's Comedian' has had millions upon millions of downloads.

    Listen to an 11-minute intro of me hyping him. This pod also features Bob Perfect as well and thanks to Yaaseen Barnes for the mic chord.


    P.S. You will hear a lot of big words but 'Ouroboros' is my fav.

Funny but insightful

Great to listen to the personal journey of Jason in such a fun interview that is the perfect balance between funny and insightful. Can't wait for the next episode.
