Newly minted author Bulelwa Mabasa joins host Fred Khumalo in episode three of the Books and Beverages podcast to discuss her passion for the land.

Mabasa recently published My Land Obsession, a memoir that deals with the impact of the Group Areas Act on her grandparents who were forcibly removed from Sophiatown and relocated to Meadowlands in Soweto.
