Senior Fellow at the Institute of Economic Affairs, Kristian Nietmetz joins the Renegades this week. Kristian explains how totalitarianism is an inevitable feature of socialism and gives a lengthy explanation as to the collapse of Venezuela. Roman wonders why socialism is still defended by rich westerners, and Jonathan explores the 'no true Scotsman' fallacy.
This week on the podcast the Renegades discuss why they weren’t bothered to watch #SONA2019 and were proven right. Roman explains how the massive oil discovery off the coast of the Western Cape may spell the end of democracy in SA, and Jonathan wanders into American politics - including Trump’s SOTU and the Democrats’ reaction. Finally, the hosts lament the low standards of corruption in the State, and how our politicians can’t even do that well.
The President of the Cape Party, Jack Miller, is this week’s guest. Jack explains what his party stands for, why they believe secession is an answer for the Western Cape, and how they would govern if they came to power. Jonathan questions the notion of secession from a philosophical, geographical and practical perspective, and Roman explores the benefits of a direct democracy system.
Magnus Heystek is the well-known former journalist and business editor, author, and prominent investment commentator who features on the podcast this week. Magnus gives a no-nonsense rundown of just how much economic trouble South Africa is in, the policies and decisions which have led to this situation, and some of the ways we could go about digging ourselves out of the hole. Roman is keen to discuss the NDR’s involvement in all of this, and Jonathan broaches the controversial topic of a tax revolt.
Democratic Alliance Chief Whip and MP, John Steenhuisen, is in the hot seat this week. John explains his view of where South Africa will end up should the ANC remain in charge, why the EFF cannot be trusted, and how the DA hopes to make inroads at the next election. The hosts challenge the messaging and leadership of the party, multiple social media faux pas, and the DA’s seeming inability to stand on principle as often as required.
This week’s guest is comedian and co-host of the Triggernometry podcast, Konstantin Kisin. Konstantin explains why he refused to sign a contract designed to make a university comedy evening a ‘safe space’, how important he considers free speech to be, and what his podcast aims to achieve by talking with individuals who hold diverse ideas.
On this final episode for 2018, the Renegades reflect on a year of podcast success and political turmoil. Roman explains why the silencing of certain voices is concurrent with the plans of the NDR, and Jonathan discusses how to take the broadest view possible of current affairs. In addition the hosts chat about Johann Rupert’s message of personal responsibility, Emmanuel Macron’s failing presidency, and if in 2019 the media will stop losing their minds over Trump.
eNCA investigative journalist Michael Appel is the guest on this episode. Michael describes his work travels to South America and how many of these countries share political similarities with South Africa. Roman explores the danger of journalists becoming celebrities, and Jonathan discusses the issue of news as an agenda-driven narrative.
Mathematician and co-author of the ‘Grievance Studies Project’, James Lindsay is this week’s esteemed guest. James discusses how himself, Helen Pluckrose, and Peter Boghossian went about designing their project to test the credibility of the social sciences, what some of the both hilarious and disturbing results were, and why it matters so much. Jonathan explores how these studies pervert the trusted academic process, and Roman posits this field as a new nidus of prejudice.
The Renegades host OUTA CEO Wayne Duvenage this week. Wayne discusses the evolution of OUTA from an opposition to road tolling, to the organisation it is today - tackling government corruption and failures. Roman questions the role of big business in standing up to State abuse, and Jonathan explores some of the other projects with which OUTA is engaged.
Sihle Ngobese, aka Big Daddy Liberty, is the guest on this week’s instalment. Sihle discusses his strong liberal roots, his time spent within the DA, and his upcoming plans to bring liberal ideas to more South Africans. Jonathan queries whether any classically liberal political representation remains in the country, and Roman discusses the ways in which citizens have been denied access to the economy through illiberal and tribal doctrines still being perpetuated.
