In episode 2, Jackson the rescue dog takes out some of the frustrations of a miserable childhood on a packet of sanitary pads and a cell phone and I have an important parenting breakthrough. Then I have a conversation with Deep Fried Man (Daniel Friedman), who used to come and listen to me play my music when he was a schoolboy and who is now an established South African comedian, satirist and TV star. Nice guy, fun talk.
In the first episode of Talkward, I say hello, tell you how I evaded a home inspection for my new rescue dog, and avoid talking about why I am single again. Then I talk to Lloyd Ross, the South African music producer and filmmaker who co-founded Shifty Records and who was responsible for finding, recording, supporting and releasing the best South African songwriters, under almost impossible circumstances. Enjoy.
