htxt.africast – What’s on our watch/play list for December

In this week’s africast we start to wind down for the end of year.

With businesses readying for the festive season, schools closing for the holidays, and South Africans generally gatvol with the current state of affairs, December is the perfect time to binge watch some series, or engross yourself in gaming.

Keeping that in mind, we have detailed the movies, series, and games that we are most interested in this month, some of which are already available, depending on the streaming platform or system you play on.

Before that, however, we discuss the most interesting news stories of the week, starting with a less than satisfactory encounter with our own Brendyn Lotz and a Bolt driver. Turning to the ridesharing platform for assistance, his interactions, or lack thereof, left a lot to be desired.

Next we discuss Elon Musk and one of this other ventures that does not involve coloured check marks – Neuralink. This week he provided an update on the ambitious project to implant devices into human brains, which is said to be six months away from actual human testing too.

Lastly we look at the launch of the country’s first Artificial Intelligence Institute. The Institute will be working with two universities in Gauteng, with UJ even looking to make a course in AI compulsory for its students moving forward, according to its vice-chancellor. Precisely how it will be implemented, however, is yet to be disclosed.

As for the meat and potatoes of this week’s africast, we discuss several pieces of media that are on the horizon, many of which are coming to Netflix coincidentally. These include The Witcher: Blood Origin, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Troll, and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. You can listen to us discuss all of them and more in the player below.
