In this interview, John Cloete from Radio West Coast interviews Naomi Cloete, a small-scale fisher from Paternoster, and they talk about the reality of the poverty that fishermen live in, they talk also about how generation after generation of fisher-boys become fishermen because there simply is no other life for them on these shores. Naomi also tells us how fisher folk has to suffer, partly because of policy but more worryingly by the national silence that shrouds the Indigenous Peoples of the Western cape coastlines.

Humanity NPC travelled to the home of Rooibos Tea in Wuperthal, South Africa, to talk to the Indigenous people there about the origins of the tea, and how it had been in their families for generations. This podcast also discusses the benefit sharing agreement, which promises that a benefit of the sales of the tea will go to the Indigenous Khoi and San people of the region and what it means to the people of Wuperthal.
