Malaysian news & current affairs can be so hectic that you may be pardoned if you missed a story or two. SHAZU Speaks is here to help you dive deep into one important story each week, in a casual cross-newsroom chatroom which includes the country's brightest, exciting, and diverse subject matter experts.

Lunchtime News Recap is our flagship chatroom on Clubhouse, where we chat for around 1 hour with 3 to 4 journalists or experts,with chances for audience to join the floor & speak their mind. Usually on Tuesdays, but occassionally on Thursdays depending on speakers' availability.

Suppertime News Chat is our supplementary chatroom on Twitter Spaces, where we open a free room for at least 1 hour with the audience, & previous guests. On certain Fridays, please check our social media for updates.
