In today's music segment we feature the music of Joburg-born musician Ben Dey.

Dey is soon to release his 10-track solo debut album, titled InFlow. But in the lead up to that, he's dropped a single to whet your appetite.
Dey's paid tribute to Bob Marley, by doing a cover of the reggae music legend’s song Natural Mystic.

When we think of local travel many of us think of either beach or bush, or perhaps some time in the mountains. Joburg is a place we tend to associate with business travel - the Big Smoke, fast, furious, and unfriendly to lost Capetonians who don’t know how to get around. But there is more to the city than meets the eye. And with international travel still limited by the pandemic, today we thought we’d share some insight into fun things to do in the city of Gold, with a bit of help from someone who makes a habit of finding the best in everything.
That's writer, speaker, and expert purveyor of Random Acts of Kindness, the Good Things Guy Brent Lindeque.

In today's music segment we feature the sounds of Afrikaans musician Christiaan Baartman. His latest single STOF is accompanied by a special music video, highlighting the plight of South African rhinos. The video was shot on location in a Rhino Sanctuary, that specializes in the rehabilitation and protection of rhinos that were affected by poaching
Baartman is hoping his efforts and the music video will help a local NPO called Food for Rhino's, which assists the endangered animals.
In Legal Talk today we want to focus on the role of mediation. Since the middle of last year, it has been part of the standard rules of practice in South Africa that a lawyer must first attempt mediation between parties before bringing a case to court – and yet this is not what has been happening in practice.
To explain why and talk about the role of mediation, Pippa is joined on the line Veeresh Shrikison who is a family later based in Gauteng and a trained mediator.
In the second part of our food segment today, we want to introduce you to one of the country’s most popular online cooking groups and to the new cookbook they’ve just released. The group is called Foodies of South Africa and it has over 180 000 members on Facebook, from diverse regional and cultural backgrounds. What they all have in common is a love of cooking or a desire to connect with others through the medium of food.
The new book is called Kitchen Shortcuts – Recipes for smarter cooking and it’s a treasure trove of quick-fix recipes that contain minimal ingredients, easy to follow instructions and a solution for everything from family dinners to breakfasts, baking, snacks and sweet treats.
Joining Pippa on the line is Cassidy Nydahl one of the co-authors of the book.
