What we do

Inspire. Challenge. Debate.

Street Talk is the groundbreaking South African television series encouraging citizens to debate, discuss and express their views. From grassroots to the establishment, our engaging programmes expose the lived realities and uncensored views and solutions of ordinary South Africans.

Because we believe that South Africans are more alike than they think, we have committed to breaking down barriers born out of our past and present circumstances. The Street Talk methodology utilizes the dynamic of conversation, facilitating exciting, informative and sometimes controversial dialogue.

Each week, we air hard-hitting and inspiring stories that inform, educate and motivate our growing audience. We encourage active citizenship for a better South Africa.

Jealousy!

Season 6 Episode 5

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 10:00pm

“When people envy you…..instead of wanting to understand how you got there or how you achieved what you achieved….they hate you for being that person or they [set] a trap for you so that you fall”

“A man can be very jealous but he’ll keep it inside…he’ll never express it”

“These days many women befriend men rather than women because women have too many issues when it comes to jealousy”

We’ve all felt the cold stab of jealousy and envy at some point in our lives; the shadow side of our human nature. For Zintle, Ntombekhaya, Mkhululi, Zininzi and Zuzo they’ve had more than a few run ins with this nasty vice, within themselves, other people and in romantic relationships.

Sex Talk – Coming soon

Sex Talk

 

Sex Talk our new studio based series coming soon …

A fun, frank and entertaining weekly television talk show, hosted by Kgomotso Matsunyane, will give South Africans from all walks of life the opportunity to talk about sex and sexuality.

By lifting the veil of secrecy that surrounds the subject of sex we help individuals feel more comfortable with sex and their sexuality, promoting empowering choices, and we help communities deal with the complex social issues surrounding sexual abuse. Sex education campaigns are almost entirely focused on the prevention of disease or pregnancy. Sex talk, on the other hand, offers a positive and empowering context to sex and sexuality through very real and candid conversations with people from all walks of life. Talking about sex in a real and candid way has become vital to changing this reality. That’s why sex talk is so important for South Africa. And we invite you to help us get the conversation going.
