For this episode, I chatted to my dear friend Stanford, who is a man of great wisdom and who always offers valuable insight into the heartbeat of South Africa.

In this episode we discuss lobola, the Republic of Henley on Klip, the vast differences between Joburg and Cape Town minibus taxis, male circumcision  in South Africa, Chinese foot binding, penis transplants and what its like to fight a hundred people.

In the spirit of the podcasting world, I hugely recommend that you find Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcast series. The episodes are ultra-long, incredibly well-researched historical narratives, which are incredibly immersive and fascinating. These episodes will turn anyone into a history fanatic.

I’d love to hear your feedback and thoughts, which you can send to theluckypacketpodcast@gmail.com, or tweet to us at LuckyPacketPod. My thanks go to Stanford Mbatha and Graham Webber for their time and insight. Thanks to Citizen Jones for the music, and this episode was produced and hosted by me, your friendly neighbourhood ninja
