The notorious 'Snake Dancer' from the 70's, Glenda Kemp, catches up with the team about what she's been doing since her snake dancing days.

 

Glenda Kemp, a renowned stripper and snake dancer from South Africa came from a quiet Afrikaans family in Bloemfontein.

 

She turned her world upside down in the conservative seventies when she began stripping with Oupa, her pet python. Authorities, including the church, did their best to stop her without success… until the Lord stepped into her life.

 

Kemp’s autobiography is based on the premise of a coin – there being two sides to her life the same way there are two sides to a coin.
