    Gilli was the first person I interviewed when I arrived back in South Africa. She is also such a vibe to be around. She is now off touring and doing stand up comedy - something she is so dedicated to. She is also a long time crush. I chat to her about the comedy scene in Dubai and my recent adventures and let me tell you - I am so good at embellishing a story.

    Mojak is hands down one of the cleverest people I have met. I am always in awe of his different angles and his writing process. Not only is he a good comedian but his brain can be applied to so many different things and it is wonderful to hear the thoughts and ideas that come from his mouth. We talk about our history together and laugh and different things - I hope you enjoy this episode and find out more about someone who is a proper Lesser Known Somebody.

    Julia is not only enigmatic but she is probably one of the best Sports Broadcasters out there. Being a women in a male dominated sport we speak about her career and the passion and drive she has to succeed. I found this interview great - Julia has a commanding presence and a fun side about her. She also has the greatest thing to mention on a CV ever - a mention from legendary sports commentator Peter Drury.

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.
