TIMESLIVE PODCASTS  |  Podcast , ±26 min episodes every 6 days  |  Broadcast schedule  | 
Veteran journalist and broadcaster Rams Mabote, in association with SowetanLIVE, hosts a weekly podcast that looks at the funny side of news and current affairs. 
Mabote will take listeners on a journey to the light side of dark. Because life is too short to take the news to heart, and in typical South African style, we choose to laugh so we don’t cry.
