Christopher Hope (author) chairs a discussion with Jaco Sieberhagen (sculptor), Richard Smith (artist), and John Scott (journalist), on how they see the satirists’ art; and why the old expression: I have no gun but I can spit sums up the satirist's mischievous calling to lay bare the perversions of power, and the abuse of it.

Alayne Reesberg grew up in rural Northern Cape and after graduating from the University of Cape Town, she followed a career in diplomacy, witnessing two seminal political events - the end of the Cold War that started the process of Cuban troop withdrawal out of southern Angola (and led to Namibian independence), and the release of Nelson Mandela in 1994, which saw South Africa propelled on a path to democracy.
After earning her Master's degree in the United States, she worked in management consulting, private equity and joined Microsoft Corporation at its Seattle headquarters in 2001, where she worked for six years in Bill Gates' Enterprise Division. Her work for Gates entailed intensive relationship management between Microsoft and its 100 top enterprise accounts, touching CEOs, CIOs, CTOs and CFOs of the client companies.
