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.
