The Salacious Pod
Mzansi Magic (DStv 161)
You have probably heard of terms like 'entanglement, situationship or sneaky links' – all of which are being used by ama-2000 when referring to their dating patterns.
That is what The Salacious Pod is all about - the different arrangements within relationships and dealing with all things 'adulting' that comes with having a partner.
Hosted by radio presenter Naomi Brown, actor Phila Madlingozi and the influencer Lasizwe, the show will poke holes at everything you thought you had figured out about traditional dating and relationship dynamics.
The Salacious Pod looks to explore the present-day dating scene from the perspective of the 'young-ins' who seem to be redefining everything you thought you knew about old-fashioned courtship and dating.
The show will focus on prevalent relationship themes like non-committal relationships, co-parenting, break-ups, no-strings attached partnerships, and many other spicy topics.
The guests will comprise various personalities including Manaka Ranaka, Priddy Ugly, Musa Mseleku's son Mpumelelo who will give his insight about polygamy, BU from Adulting and many more salacious characters.
The Salacious Pod might just be what you need to see whether you are in a relationship or just a 'ship'.
