John Maytham studio audience with Mandy Wiener and Barry Bateman

Listeners were invited to join John Maytham at the CapeTalk studios for a conversation with Mandy Wiener and Barry Bateman about their book on the Oscar trial.

Barry Bateman & Mandy Wiener

Among the topics covered was the question of whether or not Oscar knew Reeva was behind the door. The prosecution's charge was that he did know it was Reeva and therefor it would be murder, the defense argued he thought it was an intruder.

The audience was asked the same question and almost everyone believed he did know. Mandy Wiener made a point of saying that the poll outcome was the same each time they did it.

The book is available from most stores or online. You can follow Barry Batemen and Mandy Wiener on Twitter.
