245: Episode 245 - 'The Satanic Verses': Fatwas & Faux Pas

5/12/2022
If the contents of a 546-page book can get one man murdered, two more seriously injured and its author forced into hiding for nine years, you can be confident of its subject: religion. But despite its reputation, ‘The Satanic Verses’ isn’t a page-by-page deconstruction of Islam. It’s a work of fiction; one that prompted the leader of Iran to call for a worldwide manhunt of anyone involved in its publication. So how did one man’s literary skill get another man literally...

244: Episode 244 - The Van Breda Family Axe Murders

5/5/2022
When police rushed to respond to a triple murder in one of South Africa’s most exclusive gated communities, it seemed as though Henri van Breda had had a lucky escape. They found him standing on his family lawn, dead-eyed and covered in blood and urine. According to the neighbours, he had been eerily waving to them while he waited for the police. All understandable, when three of your loved ones have been hacked to death by an axe-wielding maniac. But as police dug further into the...
