- Poet, playwright and storyteller, Christopher Mlalazi speaks about how the political turmoil and conflict in Zimbabwe has influenced the many aspects of his writing.
- Journalist, storyteller and ex-teacher Ruzvidzo Stanley Mupfudza says a solution to the crisis in Zimbabwe is inevitable.
- Award-winning poet and novelist, John Eppel talks about how he has been variously labelled a fascist, a Marxist-Leninist and one of Zimbabwe’s ‘new colonisers’.
- Filmmaker, playwright and author, Rory Kilalea speaks about growing up as a poor white person in a black country and the effect that this has had on him.
