South African Biographical Podcast Series
Extraordinary Lives is a podcast series that celebrates the contribution remarkable people have made on South Africa and the world. In each episode, a notable guest chooses a person who has inspired them and, together with an expert, explores the extraordinary person’s extraordinary life. This biographical series has a South African flavour but guests can choose anyone - South African or not, dead or alive. Extraordinary Lives is inspired by the BBC's Great Lives and is presented by journalist Jonathan Ancer.
Extraordinary Lives has already completed a successful first season in partnership with the Mail & Guardian and Sillito Environmental Consulting. The Mail & Guardian host the podcast series on their website and has had an enthusiastic response from it’s clientele. They have expressed a strong desire to host more episodes of Extraordinary Lives. AVE will deliver further episodes on a weekly basis. See link below for the Mail and Guardian's edition.
