“In conversation with” guests. Week 29 June – 3 July 2020

"In conversation with" has been broadcast since May 2020, and has been proving to be very popular with Travel & Things viewing audience. I get to chat to people from within the tourist industry as well as entertainers, writers and sundry interesting folk. It is a non COVID-19 space where we can be positive, share a hot beverage and hold entertaining conversations.



“In conversation with”... A new week, the beginning of yet ANOTHER month in lockdown and still there is no clarification on certain aspects of the current status.

Conducting Zoom interviews, where I cannot hide behind the anonymity of a radio microphone, is a whole new experience for me. But the chats have been fun and it has allowed me to interact with humans (albeit in the digital space) again. The interviews featured in this posting are those that I conducted between 29 June and 3 July. All the previous chats can be viewed on my YouTube channel.


Jennifer and I chatted about a variety of topics, but mainly books and authors which is her passion. And her cat makes an appearance, but her house-elf does not!


Sophia and I spoke about her latest book Going Home and what the process and the journey meant to her. This is much more than a cookbook, it is Sophia’s life between the covers and dedicated to her late Dad who was unable to make the journey with her.


I chatted to Michael about speaking on the global stage, using a metal detector in Barberton and a whole lot in between.


Caroline reminisced about the beginnings of the camp and how they are ready and waiting to have guests back again. One of my favourite camps in Madikwe and where I began my field guide training more than 2 decades ago.


Marc shared stories about himself and his particular brand of comedy with me. From his early days as an usher at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town, to eventually performing on that stage himself. From marketing to mayhem with lots of twists and turns in between.
