ECR's top 5 podcasts this week - 1/03 - 8/03

Concerns over the so-called Momo Challenge, Babes Wodumo and the new cellphone data regulations took centre stage among the East Coast Radio audience this past week - with content about these issues dominating. Here're ECR's most popular podcasts  - based on downloads - for the past seven days (Friday 1 to 8 March.)

Listen to podcasts

East Coasters have had important stories on their minds this week, it seems. Many of our most-listened-to podcasts related to the Babes Wodumo assault case. Last Sunday night, Babes, whose real name is Bongekile Simelane, took to social media to share a video of a man alleged to be her partner hitting her. Mandla 'Mampintsha' Maphumulo has since been arrested and charged with common assault.

2. Beware what you share on WhatsApp
