Episode 1 on Friday, 6 August introduces the concept of culture, content and conversation and where they intersect. The podcast explores how sub-cultures grow from small sub-cultural seeds into becoming the dominant narrative in society, and part of the broader community and mainstream culture. Guests on the first episode include culturist and urban planner Marco Morgan and creative director Thulane “Twiice” Radebe.

In episode 2 on 13 August, Sole Stories will explore the history of Cape Town’s sneaker culture, with DJ and prolific sneaker collector Chris Jack and art director Ricky Xzavier Kunene. For episode 3 on 20 August, choreographer Snethemba Mbatha and award-winning dancer Lee-Shane Booysen join the hosts to talk Body Poetry, the dance culture in Cape Town and South Africa. For episode 4 on 27 August, Soul Food, we examine the relationship between music and food together with jazz musician Mandisi Dyantyis and Pitso Chauke of Pitso’s Kitchen fame.


Hosted by TV presenter, Kuhle Adams and clothing designer, Mathew Kieser. Both these extraordinary talents will hang out with our awesome guests allowing for a natural, energy filled insightful conversation to take place.
