Costa Carastavrakis

Costa Carastavrakis has had a rough past which he tells about in a new memoir, 'I Am Costa – From Meth to Marathons'. If you’re up for an inspiring true-life tale that will make you look at experiences in a new way, then this is the interview for you. In his book, Costa charts his course through a childhood of identity confusion – growing up Greek and gay in Johannesburg; to building a glamourous life of parties, business triumphs and money... and then crashing into the devastation of drug addiction. Listen in as he tells Gareth and Phumi how he turned his life around and made a comeback as a published author.
