The hilarious duo of the ColouredIn showWritten by Ryan Swano
Kim Sanssoucie and Lowena Waries have a regular spot with their show ColouredIn on the CliffCentral.com internet radio show and we at bruinou.com not only find them hilarious but their comedic take on being Coloured turns out to be more than relevant, constantly affirming their own take on identity and debunking many stereotypes.
The dynamics between the two are made so much more interesting in that Lowena is from Ocean View, Capetown and Kim is from The Bluff, Durban and they prove our point that Coloureds from different parts of the country can identify with each other in many more ways than their regional differences would suggest.
Refreshingly they do not cover their subjects as if everything is simply about them being Coloured but the show leans more towards viewing the world as a South African in the context of being Coloured.
We found this transcript of a CliffCentral interview with them and further below you'll find links to some of their side-splitting podcasts.

Right now we at bruinou.com are listening to their pre-Valentines Day show.
All we didn't like about any of the shows is that, though the music selection isn't all too bad, there is a complete lack of music by any of the many Coloured artists who they regularly mention. We we are pretty sure they are not responsible for playlisting and hopefully they will have that fixed soon.
You can check out the podcasts of their more recent shows that can be found on the original CliffCentral.com article.
