Often times, interviewing people who interview other people for a living is a challenging task, they’re not as easily swayed or cornered by strategic questions, perhaps because they know all the tricks in the book. Poppy Ntshongwana is one such Millennial, she joins Arye Kellman for a raw, honest and paradigm-shifting discussion about her life, career, hopes and dreams, but mainly about what it means to be alive during one of the greatest times in our history. From her early years of wanting to become a politician, to getting bitten by the “radio bug”, Poppy certainly has a story to tell.
Never one to shy away from controversy, Poppy has remained true to herself, never apologising for who she is or what she believes to be true.
