Today we chat to our very first guest, Gary Cotterell. He takes us on his journey of his career in Media, enduring mistakes and trails in his life and also how we came to be friends since 2012.
We also chat about the Rorke's Drift Community, the rich history and significance of the weaving community in the KZN Midlands, South Africa and what they need to continue the work they do and how we can help by creating something functional with the carpets and bring the vibe back to life.
Thank You to Gary who took the time out of his busy schedule to spend the morning with us and for your positivity during this crazy time.
Hope You enjoy the Episode
