A while ago I decided to test out recording my first podcast series. Knowing that producing a passion project is the easiest when you have an actual passion for the subject material – I chose looking into different facets and people within the South African comic book industry.

Two years ago I had the honour of teaching a very talented student named Wanda. Not only did he display immense broadcasting talent, but he is an incredibly impressive youth. Today, you will see an example of why that is true.
He recently started a podcast series called “My Father’s Son“. I am sitting here not knowing what to write about this podcast to do it sufficient justice. I am beaming. In fact, being able to feel like as much as I believe in the talent of Wanda Sokutu, I feel like even that was an underestimation.
Wanda lost his father in 2017, and subsequently his mother the year after. I watched him go through one of the most difficult times in his life. But I am glad I am listening to this story. I wish we all had a series like this to know our friends and family better.
The podcast is detailed. It is created with care and attention. It is truly phenomenal, and I would love to take some kind of credit in his explosive success – but I can’t. This is all Wanda. And the podcast that deals with the tumultuous relationships between fathers and sons – is not just about that. It is deep and insightful. It’s inspirational. And so, so honest. And absolutely worth every listened to minute.
