If you were born in 1980 or later I don’t think this will come as much of a surprise to you: Gaming – video games, sports games and puzzles – can change your life! Gaming is actually good for you and gamer, author, speaker & all-out-cool-chick, Jane McGonigal has over ten years’ worth of scientific evidence to back it up. In her latest NY Times-bestselling book, SuperBetter, she shares how gaming can help those suffering from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder and that what we got to chat about when I interviewed her at the BCX Disrupt Summit in Johannesburg. It’s a short but super interesting discussion!

Comedian, Reality TV star, and the host of Friends Like These Trevor Gumbi is famous for his dark sense of humour, and hearing his personal stories one can see why. In this episode, he talks about fame, Twitter, and the time he tried to have a threesome with SA comedy superstar Skhumba Hlophe.
SA alternative comedy legend John Vlismas chats candidly about the rumours of that occasion he OD’ed on a flight, and the times he probably should have died – I am looking at you, Mark Banks. Warren still insists on asking his first date questions.
Comic hermit Eugene Khoza comes down from his lightening shrouded castle on the hill to talk to Warren Robertson about that time he cancelled a gig half way through, his preference for working alone, and why men must take better care of their foreskins.
Growing up in the small town of Hankey in the Eastern Cape meant comedian Alfred Adriaan‘s parents had certain expectations of him – all of which he disappointed. He talks about life since that moment, and how he has finally managed to make a fan of his dad, as well as whether he has done a murder. Warren is also there.
