Former leader of the opposition and ambassador to Argentina, Tony Leon is this episode’s guest. Tony gives his opinion of new President Cyril Ramaphosa, provides his view of the DA’s flirtation with populism, and makes a solid argument for the protection of basic rights like freedom of speech in light of the Momberg case. Jonathan probes whether the DA is in fact a liberal organisation, and Roman ponders if it’s time for a new party.
The 39th best cartoonist in South Africa, Jeremy Nell, joins us this week. Jerm explains why he does not draw for many mainstream media publications anymore and describes his view of rising alternative media in this context. Roman rants about cowardly cartoonists and Jonathan takes on the insistence of the Left to malign their opposition instead of engaging with them.
This episode plays host to US journalist Nick Monroe. The political shenanigans in South Africa have recently come under focus in light of government attempts to expropriate land. Nick provides insight into how those outside of the country view the situation. Jonathan discusses the ‘white genocide’ narrative and Roman delves into more detail around farm murders.
Photojournalist and YouTuber, Shayne Robinson, joins the Renegade Report this week. Shayne runs a YouTube channel that promotes and shares quirky and interesting aspects of the city of Johannesburg. Jonathan enquires about all the lesser-known gems hidden in the city, and Roman ponders the slow traction YouTube seems to have in South Africa. Shayne speaks about his past as a photojournalist in Libya and Haiti, his reasons for leaving mainstream media, and all of the potential he sees in one of the world’s most interesting places.

Roman explores the effect click harvesting has had on the quality of reporting, and Jonathan delves into issues of professionalism within journalism.

On this episode of the podcast, Jonathan and Roman discuss the ANC and EFF’s decision to amend the Constitution in order to expropriate land without compensation. Roman laments the notion that this is merely about land and not about property rights as a whole, while Jonathan discusses the likely economic impact - especially on those without the means to escape this type of fascism. The hosts provide some advice and potential solutions to challenge the proposed land plan, and talk about the quiet move afoot to disarm the populace.
Executive Director of UN Watch, Hillel Neuer, is the guest on this week’s episode. Mr Neuer explains why UN Watch was created and how the UN has been co-opted by dictators and human rights abusers. Roman ponders whether the UN is worth saving, and Jonathan questions the role of various offshoots within the larger parent body. Hillel reflects on the effect of Nikki Haley as US ambassador, and gives insight into the UN’s peculiar fascination with Israel.
Entrepreneur, speaker and board game enthusiast... Rich Mulholland makes a return to The Renegade Report. Rich berates the hosts for their soft interview with a previous guest and what he views as a departure from the podcast’s central tenet. Jonathan takes heat and provides some explanation for his online behaviour, and Roman wants to know more about the art and industry of public speaking. Rich discusses the stupidity of outrage culture, Malcolm Gladwell being a letdown, and why futurists are the most useless people on the planet.
This week the Renegade Report features Jerusalem Post journalist Lahav Harkov. Lahav speaks about the disingenuous nature of implying there is any kind of apartheid in Israel, the situation in the West Bank and Gaza, and the motivation the State has for its strict border security. Roman enquires about the significance of Donald Trump moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, and Jonathan explores some of the changing relationships in the Middle East between Israel and surrounding Arab countries. Ms Harkov speaks about anti-semitism in Europe, comments on immigration into Israel, and gives a well-laid argument for Zionism.
Uber Head of Business for Subsaharan Africa, Justin Spratt joins the Renegades this week. Justin is deeply concerned about the lack of dialogue and meaningful conversations in South Africa. He has a new proposal to change that. Roman is interested in finding and supporting new and exciting public intellectuals, while Jonathan decries contemporary intellectuals and their lack of charity when dealing with ideological opponents.
English Professor and ardent anti-feminist Janice Fiamengo is the guest on this episode of the Renegade Report. Janice reflects on the feminist movement of which she was once a part, and whether the core message has changed, or if it is now merely a more true reflection of what it always was. Roman explores the real-life effects of feminism, given that it is actually a poorly thought of and supported cause, and Jonathan delves into the dangerous and all encompassing Me Too movement. Prof. Fiamengo provides a historical view of feminism from the turn of the 20th century, laments the boogeyman of supposed oppression, and advocates for personal responsibility over a return to the Victorian era with regards to the treatment of women.
