The Daily Maverick Show — Kingsley Kipury and Greg Nicolson
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.
Patrick Wisani was recently sentenced for beating his girlfriend to death. We use this case as an example of how the systems in place to prevent and respond to gender-based violence fall short. We then speak to experts about the limitations of criminal justice, what prevention interventions are working, and the obstacles to scaling what works.
