M&G Newsroom: Guptagate and Google Glass

M&g Newsroom: Guptagate And Google Glass

This time M&G online editor Chris Roper makes his debut as the show's host. Joining him is Verashni Pillay, and they'll be bringing you more music and more talk than ever before.

We'll kick off with the topic on everyone's mind: Guptagate. What do you think of the allegations of racism and the ANC's show of power towards the end? Send your tweets to @mailandguardian and we'll discuss your comments on air.

Look out for our Weekly Choon, where we play a song taking a pot shot at a deserving public figure of the week. We're also adding a few more songs to the show, bringing you the best in local music with some favourites and a newcomer.

We also have an in-depth interview lined up with M&G arts editor Matthew Krouse on the latest Gerard Sekoto, as well as art investment tips for ordinary South Africans. Alistair Fairweather will also join us in the Silicone Alley segment for his take on Google's glasses. Hear why it wIll change the way we do things, whether it fails or succeeds.

And of course we'll take you through other news making headlines, including Dina Pule's latest moves, Tokyo Sexwale's messy divorce and the intriguing question of whether William Shakespeare would have been a hipster had he been alive today.

Tune in on Monday, 9am.
