By First Person

Award-winning journalist and author, Marianne Thamm, uncovers some of the extraordinary stories that lurk behind some of the most ordinary-looking South African front doors. She speaks to people in their homes, cars, bars – wherever they’d usually be found. Marianne asks questions, takes issue and peels back some of those ordinary layers to reveal the extraordinary lives underneath. She gets them to talk in the First Person. * First Person, a Kagiso Media initiative, is produced by Jayne Morgan.

Customer Reviews

Quality local stories.

Wonderful South African podcast. Marianne Thamm interviews her subjects with intelligence and empathy.


Extraordinary stories of people seeming as ordenary as you or me. But then, if you really look closely arn't we all unique and interesting? Marianne celebrates the differences between us that makes live interesting and worth living with empathy and non-judgemental open midded curiosity. One of my favourite podcasts.

A mesmerising escape hatch

The First Person podcasts are perfect for those (or most?) of us, who spend hours waiting in traffic, at schools’ parking lots, before, during, and after ballet lessons, but also on long flights and endless business trips. We are a captive audience in desperate need for a good story. First Person is exactly what we’ve been waiting for and, judging by the first two episodes, it was well-worth the waiting!
