This week on The Pitch - Tipping and white tears, was Ntokozo Qwabe making an important political point, or just being a douche-canoe? After the EFF manifesto launch, Zandi asks if ANC is shaking in its boots. And why you should really start paying attention to Bitcoin (well, at least why Lisa thinks you should). So much conflict this week... you better call Becky with the good hair.
