Episode 006 – James Murua

We meet James Murua, a blogger, journalist, editor and columnist from Nairobi, Kenya visiting Durban’s humid shores. As one of the few bloggers covering the African literary scene so comprehensively I wanted to take the opportunity of James’ visit, attending and being a panelist at the Time of the Writer – to pick his brain about what’s happening out there and which authors we should be watching.

Episode 005 – Grant ‘Twig’ Baker

We continue our dabbling into surf culture and if ever there was a subculture within a subculture it’s the big wave riders of the world. We got the opportunity to sit down with Durban’s two time Big Wave surf champ, Grant “Twiggy” Baker, to talk family life, chasing cold winter waters, and surviving 60 foot waves.
