Things We Don't Talk About - Pilot

Show description:
Things we don’t discuss is a podcast that brings forth topics perceived as taboo. Its focus is to dismantle controversial themes one conversation at a time. This podcast is created by a second-year podcasting group of students from Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape; who challenge the rules of society. As a group of creatives, we understand that all good or bad stories deserve to be told. When stories are told in their original raw state, a shift occurs in society. This podcast is home to the brave and opinion spitter(s) who are not afraid to say what’s on their mind, from students who have a lot on their chest to professionals with theoretical views. Despite its forward heart-racing angle, the podcast is a platform created to teach. Each episode will unpack and tell controversial topics while highlighting their authentic truth.
