Municipal Elections 2021: Why this is the most unpredictable election

Municipal Elections 2021: Why this is the most unpredictable election

19 October 2021 6:16 PM

John Maytham speaks to Political Economy Analyst, Keynote Speaker, Author & Futurist Daniel Silke about his recent piece in The Daily Maverick on why the #LGE2021 is the most unpredictable election ever.

Daniel Silke says that the November local government elections are likely to be the most unpredictable and perhaps least supported since the dawn of democracy in 1994. The parties that are in power, ANC and DA are in the firing line. Both parties have internal issues beyond the service-delivery terrain and both have relatively new leaders who still need to prove their electoral worth. He adds that the unpredictability of the #LGE2021 election is positive in that it diffuses the might of the larger parties — particularly the ANC — into something of a more “regular” political player that can be vulnerable at the polls and therefore vulnerable to lead.

Why we are nostalgic about music we listened to when we were young

1 December 2021 6:07 PM

Guest: Dr Kelly Jakubowski

If you are wondering why you are nostalgic about music you listened to when you were young, a recent study by academics at the University of Durham in England might have the answer.
They found that music is closely linked with  both autobiographic memory and emotion, and particularly with positive emotional memories that have social themes.
Also, that this music-related reminiscence bump peaked at around the age of 14 with songs popular when participants  in the study were at this age evoking the most memories overall.
