Redi Direko vs Floyd Shivambo -- The Animated Summary by Roy Blumenthal 320 x 240

On Wednesday 13 May 2009, Redi Direko was hosting her talk show on 702 Talk Radio. During the show, she took ANC Youth League Spokesperson, Floyd Shivambo, to task. He was on record accusing DA leader, Helen Zille, of 'sleeping her way to the top'. He also suggested that the male members of her cabinet were her 'concubines'.

Shivambo phoned the station, outraged at being taken out of context, and demanding the right to reply, to explain what he meant.

Listen to the podcast for the full version of his incompetent idiocy. Or watch this animated summary to get a sense of what listeners and Direko had to go through. Here's the podcast link:

I made the caricatures using ArtRage 2.5. I used Audacity to edit the audio down to an acceptable length of time. The animation was made using a closed beta version of CrazyTalk 6 (I was asked by the developers to be one of the beta testers of the software).
