I am an indie podcast producer from Johannesburg, South Africa. I created this podcasting platform as somewhat of a legacy project. To borrow from David Viscott, the purpose of life is to find your gift. The meaning of life is to give it away.
I am a storyteller. Radio is where I ply my trade. I love the beauty of the medium. The way it can move you, the way it carries your imagination. I have 16 years of experience in a radio news environment. I also have considerable experience in radio current affairs, including features making. Over the years I have profiled lawyers and judges, historical figures and ordinary people – all with a story to tell.
I started this website to help make podcasting more accessible. I believe that South Africans are natural storytellers. I also believe that podcasting is the future of radio. I have three active christian podcasts, which all publish weekly.
I also launched an art podcast, run by social artivist Wesley Pepper. He felt that artists didn’t have much of a voice even before the lockdown. Now more than 25 episodes in, and he credits the podcast as one of his most successful projects for 2020!
And, we’re super excited to be carrying The Other Side of the Sun Podcast by Solarkidd. The podcast launched in August. Solarkidd is a Music Producer/Sound Engineer. He started this podcast as a journey of self discovery. Guests on his weekly podcast show include local legends, like Jason Goliath and major players on the London Rave scene, such as Junior Tomlin.
At Spudcaster, we are building a storytelling platform. Our ultimate goal is to generate local content. To allow Africans to tell African stories. Let Spudcaster podcast your life! Be a part of the next BIG thing!

Shalom listeners! Today we will explore the courtyard of praise and how to enter into an attitude of praise Psalm 100:4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving (tôwdâh), and His courts with praise (tehillâh)! Praise (yâdâh) Him; bless (bârâk) His name! SEVEN KEY HEBREW WORDS FOR PRAISE The word praise appears many times in the bible however we lose the exact meaning in the English language. Hebrew has seven words to describe praise. I would like to encourage you to take a concordance and everywhere you see the word “praise” in your bible, write down the Hebrew word next to it and you will get a better understanding of what is being said. I am just going to give a brief description of the seven Hebrew words for praise. The references have been added so that you may look them up for their full meaning. Hâlal (Strong’s Concordance 1984) To praise God explosively and enthusiastically. (Primary root of the word hallelujah Psalm 22:23 “I will declare Your Name to my brothers. I will praise (Hâlal) You amid the Congregation. Psalm 63:6 …so my mouth praises (Hâlal) You with joyful lips. Psalm 69:31 I will praise (Hâlal) God’s Name with a song, and magnify Him with praise. Psalm 150 Tehillâh (Strong’s Concordance 8416) To sing praises extravagantly. Psalm 40:4 “He put a new song in my mouth – a hymn of praise (Tehillâh) to our God. Many will see and fear and trust in ADONAI.” Psalm 22:4 “Yet You are holy, enthroned on the praises (Tehillâh) of Israel. Psalm 34:2 “I will bless (Barak) ADONAI at all times. His praise (Tehillâh) is continually in my mouth.” Psalm 66:2 “Sing the glory of His Name – make His praise (Tehilâah) glorious.” Shâbach (Strong’s Concordance 7623) To shout; to exclaim praise, to proclaim with a loud voice. Psalm 63:4 “Since Your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise (Shâbach) you.” Psalm 117:1 “Praise (Shâbach) ADONAI, all you nations! Glorify Him, all you people. Psalm 145:4 “One generation will praise (Shâbach) Your works to another and declare Your mighty acts. Psalm 147:12 “Exalt ADONAI, (Shâbach) O Jerusalem! Praise (Hâlal) your God, O Zion. Yâdâh (Strong’s Concordance 3034) To worship or revere with raised or extended hands. Psalm 134:2 “Lift up your hands (Yâdâh) in the sanctuary and bless ADONAI.” Psalm 9:2 “I will praise (Yâdâh) ADONAI with my whole heart. I will tell about all your wonders.” Psalm 7:18 “I will praise (Yâdâh) ADONAI for His justice. I sing praise to the Name of ADONAI Elyon!” Psalm 54:8 “I will sacrifice a freewill offering to You. I will praise (Yâdâh) Your Name.” Psalm 142:8 “Bring my soul out of prison, so I may praise (Yâdâh) Your Name.” Tôwdâh (Strong’s Concordance 8426) To give thanks; to extend the hands in thanksgiving. Psalm 100:4 “Enter His gates with thanksgiving (Tôwdâh) and His courts with praise (Tehillâh)! Praise (Yâdâh) Him, bless (Barak) His Name.” Psalm 50:23 “A sacrifice of praise (Tôwdah) honors Me, and to the one who orders his way, I will show the salvation of God.” Psalm 116:17 “To You I will offer a sacrifice of praise (Tôwdâh), and I will call on the Name of ADONAI.” Bârak (Strong’s Concordance 1288) To bless God as an act of adoration; to kneel expectantly and quietly before him. Psalm 145:21 “My mouth declares the praise of ADONAI. Let all flesh bless (Bârak) His holy Name forever and ever!” Psalm 34:2 “I wi

THE GOLDEN ALTAR OF INCENSE PART 1 (YESHUA THE HIGH PRIEST – PRAYER AND INTERCESSION) Part of our worship is prayer and intercession. God has called each believer to be a holy and royal priesthood. I Peter 2:5 you also as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house, be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Messiah Yeshua. I Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Under the Old Covenant, the Altar of Incense was in the Holy Place and only the High Priest could minister before the Lord. In Hebrews 9:2-4 we read that the Altar of Incense is in the Most Holy Place. The curtain has been torn and we can all come directly into the presence of God to minister as a holy and royal priesthood. THE FOUR HORNS OF THE ALTAR OF INCENSE Altar – Worship Incense – Prayer The horn is a symbol of power, strength and defense and all of the above can be found in the horns of: Praise, Worship, Prayer & Intercession. Revelation 5:8…the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Revelation 8:3 And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, 4 and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. THE HORNS OF THANKSGIVING, PRAISE & WORSHIP DIRECT ACCESS TO GOD THROUGH THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE When entering the Tabernacle, we are exhorted to “Enter his gates with thanksgiving (tôwdâh), and his courts with praise (tehillâh)! Give thanks (yâdâh) to him; bless (bârâk) his name!” Psalm 100:4 THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE Thank God for all His goodness and for all He has done for us. Praise God for His greatness. Even the Lords’ prayer begins with honouring the Name of God. Matthew 6:9 Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Luke 11:1 Father, hallowed be your name. THE HORN OF PRAISE Praise moves our focus onto the One whom we are praising. Praise brings encouragement – Names and character of God. Praise builds our faith – Praise lifts our eyes from our circumstances to our almighty Father who is the Ruler over all. Praise brings deliverance – 2 Chron. 20:1-30 King Jehoshaphat. Praise lifts our eyes from the battle to the victory. THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE LEAD TO WORSHIP Psalm 95:1 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. 3 For the LORD is the great God, and the great King above all gods. 4 In His hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the hills are His also. 5 The sea is His, for He made it; And His hands formed the dry land. 6 Oh come let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our maker. 7 For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, The sheep of His hand. THE HORN OF WORSHIP Worship is primarily an attitude. During worship we become totally focused on God and thus the lines of communication are open for God to speak to us through His Spirit. It is important to hear what God is saying so that we can pray and interce
