The Morning Rush, The Night Time Show, The Liquid Lounge, just to name a few. By tradition, every show host on the station performs a near-ceremonious handover to the next host once the…

Good morning my internet people. Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, and I have decided to say a lot of No’s. But knowing that a lot of you do not know how to say No, I will spare this few minutes to teach you this art which I have perfected.…

I am firmly against the idea that religion and logic don’t go together. It is very lazy and an incredibly dangerous idea to perpetuate. It also seems like a condescending idea peddled by us atheists to seem superior to the religious but ALSO a condescending idea peddled by religious people (mostly christians tbh) to seem…

Young ones, let me tell you a story. One I hope can serve as an alternate reality to the projections and hysteria of society. This is my story. I feel I need to tell it because some of the tales I’ve heard have been asinine to put it lightly. It has affected people’s ability to…

I’ve heard this saying countless times. I dont know if it’s a cliché or a myth. Neither do I know if it’s a saying that people just make because it makes them sound wise.

“Brethren & Sisthren! I have a testimony!” The English Premier League (no longer Barclays) ’16/17 season kicked off recently to fever pitch expectation and general wide acclaim. Yipee! “Everyone is addicted to something”  – The Huffington Post. Take away my budding conspiracy theory of scripted in-match sequences and the fear of possible defeat to newly promoted…

I had an idea. …Of all the many things to write that would be featured as my next post on TNC. But the minute I logged into Word Press to start typing, I went blank. I had an idea. Hell, I even had a title and knew what the conclusion was going to be. All…

There are two sides to a coin. There are probably ten sides to me; the strong, the weak, the goofy, the super-confident, the insecure, the fierce and the mild. Different sides spanning different ends of the spectrum. Why is it easy then to judge me based on my perceived strength alone, one side of me…

Since I discovered TNC, it has been a jolly-good ride. I have read from some of the most beautiful thinkers, presenting issues from different angles. The awesome part of my journey with TNC, so far, is the simplicity yet highly cerebral style of writing. The comment section of TNC should be compiled into a book.…
