htxtafricast – Observer, Gupta media and The Daily Stormer woes
The end of Winter is in sight though if you’re up in Johannesburg, but appears that the season has given us one last reminder of what it means to be cold.
For that reason there’s never been a better reason to strap on your favourite pair of headphones to keep your ears warm and listen to this edition of the htxt.africast.
This week Nick chats about the latest Uncharted game before telling us more about Observer. The game is billed as a cyberpunk horror and after hearing Nick describe his time with the game it sounds a lot like if Blade Runner had been written as a horror.
Then Lungelo joins us for a second week in a row to discuss the sale of ANN7 and The New Age to Mzwanele “Jimmy” Manyi, for R450 million.
Finally, we take a look at the woes that The Daily Stormer encountered last week and a statement from the Electronic Frontier Foundation that said perhaps stopping white supremacists from having websites is not the greatest of ideas.
