0031 - Can Business Work in Muizenberg?

Muizenberg hosted a business event called "Gateway to Muizenberg : Business for Change". Another business event, networking opportunity or get together? I thought it was just another one.

The guest speaker, Steven Harris from 75 Harrington Street, shared some of his experiences in collaborating with other...

0029 - The Producers at the Masque Theatre

Our first special podcast at the Masque Theatre. We interview some of the actors in the cast of the Producers. This is an amazing "so called" amateur production.

The audience were astounded by the quality of the production and this reflected in...

We kick off this podcast with a heartwarming story about bees and what better place to have a talk about them than at the Hive in Palmer Road, Muizenberg.
