Timothy and Sharon are joined by Poet/Writer/Zinemaker and all round phenomenal artist Gloria Kiconco to talk about Shaka Zulu, a miniseries that played on UTV back in the day (we can't remember exactly when!). We talk about its controversial initial release, speculate the accuracy of the show, talk about what its like to watch a show like this today and its power and significance overall. If you watched Shaka Zulu while growing up as well, let us know your story! The miniseries position as a staple in many homes might call for a follow up episode to hear more from other people!
