With its anti-establishment attitude and a “stuff you” approach to political spin-doctoring and press release-driven news cycles, the Daily Maverick show stands out as a fresh, irreverent take on the current affairs talk show. The Daily Maverick show puts the journalists behind the stories in front of the microphone. Airing on Tuesdays at 1pm, Daily Maverick journalists will share insights on the big issues moving South Africa and major news items from around the world. Expect regular appearances from Ranjeni Munusamy, Richard Poplak, J Brooks Spector, Simon Allison and others.
