TalkCentral: Ep 214 – ‘Digital radio in South Africa’

In this episode of TalkCentral, your hosts Duncan McLeod and Regardt van der Berg chat about the steps communications regulator Icasa is taking to possibly introduce digital radio broadcasting in South Africa — what is it exactly, and should we be excited?

Also on the show this week, there are signs of spring in the South African economy, says the CEO of Pinnacle. Plus, Xiaomi might be buying GoPro, Telegram is banned in Russia and Apple’s HomePod speaker sales disappoint.

Listen to the show to find out who’s been picked as winner and loser of the week.

Regardt’s pick this week in HP’s 17-inch Omen gaming laptop, while Duncan has picked porting.co.za for looking up which network South African phone numbers are on.
