Oh, and here’s our index of all episode in one concisepage Running Sheet: Sherlock Holmes 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:02:25 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week this week is the Galway Pipe Bourbon Barrel Tawny 10 YO, voted best wine from Australia at the Frankfurt International Trophy 2024, and the Galway Pipe Grand Tawny 12 YO, which won the Grand Gold Award. These two significant awards at the prestigious Frankfurt International Trophy 2024, were against competition from more than 2,550 wines from nearly 30 countries. This is fitting because Sherlock Holmes always smoked a pipe and kept his tobacco in an old slipper. Not sure if he drank Port though? Galway Pipe is named after Sir Henry Lionel Galway, a “notable” governor of South Australia who was renowned for his discerning taste in fine fortified wines. That’s not all he was known for. Sir Henry was appointed Governor of South Australia in 1914. He resented the limitations placed upon a constitutional governor, and his governorship was defined by controversy. He managed to anger a wide spectrum of the population. The general public disliked his support of compulsory military training; puritans were angered by his support for gambling and his opposition to prohibition; progressives were infuriated by his opposition to women’s enfranchisement; and the political establishment were aghast at his opposition to the White Australia Policy (on the grounds that the Northern Territory needed Asian workers). For this last opinion, he was forced to issue a full retraction and apology. A speech in 1915 in which Galway suggested that trade unionists should be conscripted and sent to the front was widely criticised and gave local cartoonists a field day. It was eventually Galway’s support for conscription that saved his governorship; the legislature decided that his efforts to increase voluntary recruitment for the First World War, as well as his support for conscription referendums, warranted keeping him in the role. A motion in the legislature by the Labor opposition in 1917 calling for the abolition of his office failed. After the war, Premier Archibald Peake was considering a proposal to build a national war memorial on the site of Government House, Adelaide, with a new vice-regal residence to be purchased in the suburbs. Galway managed to dissuade Peake from this scheme, and the war memorial was built in a corner of the grounds of Government House. Galway’s appointment was not renewed when it expired in 1920; although he was liked by the Adelaide establishment, he had been a spectacularly controversial governor, and the Colonial Office did not give him another post. He returned to England later in 1920. Back to the wine, Galway Pipe in Langhorne Creek is led by Head Winemaker Chris Dix and Senior Winemaker Chad Smith, and is available through BWS, Dan Murphy’s, Liquorland, First Choice and more. Galway Pipe Bourbon Barrel Tawny 10 YOComplex flavours on the palate such as caramel, vanilla, fruitcake, and an abundance of sweet spice notes. The small format barrel has a profound influence, amplifying the tawny’s character with exotic bourbon notes: delicate interplay of charred wood, rye, and toasted malt characters emerge, entwining harmoniously with the tawny’s essence to create a perfect union. Galway Pipe Grand Tawny 12 YOAged in oak barrels for an average of 12 years, this exquisite, rich blend of character-filled grape varieties. A complex flavour profile of raisins, dried pears, grilled nuts and spicy oak. The palate is balanced with levels of sweetness and acidity, perfectly crafted and aged, ready to drink. 00:17:42 Sherlock Holmes Society with Peter Dunn Earlier this year, to cleanse my pallate after reading a series of business books, I opted to listen to Stephen Fry’s reading of the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. I was smitten. Then I fell off my chair when Adelaide was mentioned in the story, The Adventure of the Abbey Grange, only to fall off again when we got another mention in The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax. My curiosity compelled me to ascertain whether or not the ships, Rock of Gibraltar and Bass Rock, actually existed and carried passengers from Adelaide to Southampton. I found evidence for the latter, and also discovered that Adelaide has a group called Unscrupulous Rascalls, but I have failed to be able to make contact with them. So, after reaching out to Keith Conlon, who put me in touch with ABC Adelaide Producer John Thompson-Mills, I was invited onto the Drive program with Jo Laverty, and through that discussion, I met Peter Dunn, who was a member of the original Sherlock Holmes Society Of Australia. He joins me now in what I hope will be a singular episode of The Adelaide Show. Original members of the Sherlock Holmes Society Of Australia, from left, Anne Dunn, Peter Dunn, and founder, Alan Olding, at the launch of the movie, “Young Sherlock Holmes” Before we proceed, I must say that I love Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s use of English, in particular, his use of the adjective, singular. I find myself using it. Are there any other words or phrases that rubbed off on you, other than, elementary (which rarely comes up)? How did the Sherlock Holmes Society of Australia come to be, and what drove its members’ passion for Holmes? Let’s have a listen to how The Case Of The Elusive Sherlock Holmes Society came to be solved, thanks to the Jo Laverty interview on ABC Adelaide. This is my second interview with Jo on the day. Tell us more about the society and some of those connections to stories and to the author. In my first chat with Jo Laverty, I brought up the only blemish in Stephen Fry’s narration, when he we trying to do the accent of Lady Brackenstall from Adelaide, whose maiden name was Mary Fraser. Here’s a snippet from the story, The Adventure Of The Abbey Grange. What do you think of that accent? We should go back to the beginning and “A Study in Scarlet” because this is how we meet Holmes and Watson and set the stage for all that followed. Charting the story through the lens of Holmes seems to me to have been a master stroke. What do you like about it? How does it compare to the odd story written from Holmes’ perspective? “The Final Problem” was the story when we meet Moriarty and both he and Holmes supposedly die. What sort of discussion arose around this story in the society? Let’s turn to “The Hound of the Baskervilles”— because this has remained the most popular Holmes story and is where we experience the clash of spiritualism with Holmesian logic. Can you imagine Doyle’s inner world as he wrote this? This brings us to October in 1920, when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle visited Adelaide to give a lecture on spiritualism. Samela Harris pointed out a scathing review. I will read some of it, and then let’s discuss the enigma that the famous author was: CONAN DOYLE’S VISIT UNINSPIRING LECTURES. AN INTOLERANT “EVANGEL”  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has come to Adelaide and gone, but he probably made few converts to the “faith.” The curious thing was that the noted spiritualist did not profess to be able to make them. All he hoped to do was to “sow the seed,” so that those people who thought well enough of it could continue their enquiries into the new revelation, which, really isn’t new at all. This seems a sweeping confession of one’s impotence to convince the public mind of the truths of the cult when it comes from so high an apostle of the movement — “the flaming evangelist of spiritualism,” as he was billed; a man who claims to have spent 34 years of his important life reading about it, delving into it, and experimenting with it. It is a poor apostle who has such small faith in his ability to garner fresh recruits! As a lecturer Sir Conan lacks the power to grip or arrest an audience. In a physical and mental sense there is plenty of him, but his rugged personality is too material, his emotions too inflexible, and his arguments too unconvincing to impress or influence a mass of earnest, intelligent  isteners. WAR ON DOUBTERS. But those are not his only handicaps. He exhibits a vexed and an intolerant attitude towards those who dare to differ from him. Instead of extending a charitable and winning indulgence to his critics or honest doubters he hurls cutting jibes at a “sneering and jeering world,” scoffs at the “amazing ignorance and enormous impertinence of little people,” contemptuously brashes aside “so-called leaders of science and religion,” and rails at “the great stupidity and levity of the press.’ His style is unreasonably didactic and his methods jarring. It is “the Gospel according to Sir Conan” — and woe unto the unbeliever! While no one will question the sincerity or honesty of the celebrated visitor, there were yet elements surrounding the series of his Adelaide lectures which smacked of the “showman.” Often when unfolding an interesting phase or enunciating a certain principle the speaker would abruptly break off with the intimation that he would deal with that in a later discourse — “to be continued in our next,” as the serial says — and what was originally intended to be two addresses developed into four “spellbound” lectures, the last, as the public notice read, “at popular prices  notwithstanding the enormous success of Sir Arthur’s visit.” DISAPPOINTED LISTENERS. So far as it was possible to glean opinions of people who attended the lectures it seemed that many were disappointed that there was no public seance given which might help to clear away suspicion or stimulate thought on the revelation. At such a time in the history of the world when  people are borne on the surging bosom of a restless sea of doubt and distrust, when there is an expectant longing for something that is new and entrancing, the way of the man with a fresh and fascinating gospel is open if his doctrine is but convincing. But there was little tangible in whatSir Conan had to say or present. Even for the genuineness of some of his spirit pictures he would not vouch, and he shattered the popular belief that the camera would never lie. Then he admitted the unreliability of some of the mediums and warned his hearers to beware of fraud. “We have discovered,” said Sir Conan, “that certain people have the power to throw out a substance generally known as psycho-plasm, which is at the basis of all this material phenomena. It is thrown out by certain people — more by some than others— and it is this psychoplasm which really makes the medium.” What do you think about some of the later Holmes stories. To me, there was a decline in the quality of the last ones in His Last Bow and The Case Book Of Sherlock Holmes. Peter what are your favourite moments and stories from the Holmes canon? Let’s draw to a close with an obscure story How Watson Learned the Trick, which is not included in the main collections and was written for a specific occasion. This short piece was for a booklet compiled for Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House. He also wrote The Field Bazaar for a university fundraiser. [I will read How Watson Learned The Trick]. This is like Holmes in fast forward. Your thoughts? What do you think Holmes and Doyle have brought to cultural and intellectual life around the world? How Watson Learned The Trick, from Arthur-Conan-Doyle.com Watson had been watching his companion intently ever since he had sat down to the breakfast table. Holmes happened to look up and catch his eye. “Well, Watson, what are you thinking about?” he asked. “About you.” “Me?” “Yes, Holmes. I was thinking how superficial are these tricks of yours, and how wonderful it is that the public should continue to show interest in them.” “I quite agree,” said Holmes. “In fact, I have a recollection that I have myself made a similar remark.” “Your methods,” said Watson severely, “are really easily acquired.” “No doubt,” Holmes answered with a smile. “Perhaps you will yourself give an example of this method of reasoning.” “With pleasure,” said Watson. “I am able to say that you were greatly preoccupied when you got up this morning.” “Excellent!” said Holmes. “How could you possibly know that?” “Because you are usually a very tidy man and yet you have forgotten to shave.” “Dear me! How very clever!” said Holmes. “I had no idea, Watson, that you were so apt a pupil. Has your eagle eye detected anything more?” “Yes, Holmes. You have a client named Barlow, and you have not been successful with his case.” “Dear me, how could you know that?” “I saw the name outside his envelope. When you opened it you gave a groan and thrust it into your pocket with a frown on your face.” “Admirable! You are indeed observant. Any other points?” “I fear, Holmes, that you have taken to financial speculation.” “How could you tell that, Watson?” “You opened the paper, turned to the financial page, and gave a loud exclamation of interest.” “Well, that is very clever of you, Watson. Any more?” “Yes, Holmes, you have put on your black coat, instead of your dressing gown, which proves that your are expecting some important visitor at once.” “Anything more?” “I have no doubt that I could find other points, Holmes, but I only give you these few, in order to show you that there are other people in the world who can be as clever as you.” “And some not so clever,” said Holmes. “I admit that they are few, but I am afraid, my dear Watson, that I must count you among them.” “What do you mean, Holmes?” “Well, my dear fellow, I fear your deductions have not been so happy as I should have wished.” “You mean that I was mistaken.” “Just a little that way, I fear. Let us take the points in their order: I did not shave because I have sent my razor to be sharpened. I put on my coat because I have, worse luck, an early meeting with my dentist. His name is Barlow, and the letter was to confirm the appointment. The cricket page is beside the financial one, and I turned to it to find if Surrey was holding its own against Kent. But go on, Watson, go on! It ‘s a very superficial trick, and no doubt you will soon acquire it.” 01:17:59 Musical Pilgrimage In the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature song by  Professor Flint, Creatures Of The Slime. This is the third album by the Prof, and a total of five albums from the pen of Michael Mills. All the links are here. The new album, “Creatures of the Slime” , has just dropped and explores the remarkable fossil heritage of the Flinders Ranges. It comprises 16 newly recorded songs, including a song about Spriginna, the South Australian fossil emblem. In our discussion with Peter, he points out that the nearby Hallett Cove Conservation Park now has a model Diprotodon, which Peter went to see, bumping into the man who found the fossilled remains of the massive marsupial from our past. Diprotodon at Hallett Cove, photo taken by Peter Dunn It is a great example of what happens when creatives work with researchers at places such as the South Australian Museum, to create content for the community. And while mostly for young humans, aged 12 and under, and their families, the album includes the title track, remixed by a US DJ, having played the song on a regular basis at a nightclub in Los Angeles!Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

392 - Leadership Drought: A Call to Wine Australia Amid Small And Family Winery Despair

Whether you drink a little bit of South Australian wine, or a lot, your decisions about what you buy and where you buy it from, make a big difference. We sit with three passionate people from the wine industry, today, and they have some tales of woe to share, some stories about labour of love they all carry out, and some messages to those of us who’d like to see a thriving sector of small, family-run wineries who bring texture and body to the glass and to many circles of the economy throughout our state. There is no SA Drink Of The Week this week. Well, actually, there are four, but they are woven through the episode. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature a new song from Suedan, that is slightly related to our theme: Whiskey Did It.

Oh, and here’s our index of all episode in one concisepage Running Sheet: Leadership Drought: A Call to Wine Australia Amid Small And Family Winery Despair00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week Not one but four SA Drinks Of The Week this week. They are interwoven throughout the episode. If you would like to hear the tasting notes, you’ll find them here: 00:09:08 – Paulmara Estates 2021 “The Marriage” Cabernet Shiraz 00:47:27 – Ben Murray Wines 2021 Barossa Valley Shiraz 01:18:15 – Flinders Run 2021 Baroota Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 01:49:05 – Paulmara Estates 2021 ARETÎ 00:03:19 Paul Georgiadis, Emanuel Skorpos, Dan Eggleton It’s a tough gig, being at the helm of a family-owned winery in Australia in 2024. China’s tariffs on Australian wine bit hard, causing a glut in supply, while the multinationals like Coles and Woolworths used their clout to create “fake” boutique wines that “magically” got shelf space and retailer support from, well, Coles and Woolworths. Meanwhile, our 2500 wineries and grape growers have been contributing to the coffers of Wine Australia in the hope that its role of supporting and regulating the Australian grape and wine industry would mean that someone was looking out for them and not ignoring the big bad wolves who are plundering the sector every day. But, if you’re surviving in this industry, maybe that’s enough because as one of the guests who couldn’t make it today was quoted as saying on the ABC recently, you don’t get into the wine industry to make money, you do it because you love it! Who are our guests? We have Paul Georgiadis who, among other things, is the founder and owner of Paulmara Estates, along with his wife, Mara. We’re recording at Paulmara in Marananga today. We also have the man who suggested we hold this discussion, Emanuel Skorpos, the Principal Vintner at Flinders Run in the Southern Flinders, and Dan Eggleton, the cofounder and winemaker at Ben Murray Wines and Principal and Founder of Vinous Consulting. I like naming elephants in rooms, so my first reflection is that we’re all blokes, sitting around this table. We haven’t excluded women, it’s more that Emanuel is directly connected to you all and this gathering developed organically from there. Had we more microphones, I would have arranged for Jane Richards to join us from Eight At The Gate Wines in Wrattonbully – she is an absolute dynamo – and I’m sure you all work with women in different roles. Can we acknowledge some before we move on? The key theme of our discussion is that “mum and dad” wineries make up the bulk of those 2500 wineries in Australia, and it always hurts a bit when we see our Premier hobnobbing at a new Wolf Blass cellar door to celebrate government support for a business you’d think was hardly in need of extra help. Mind you, I did mention this to a winemaker friend of mine, who is also part of a family-run winery, and he confessed that he “gets it” because the levies that fund Wine Australia are based on volume and the big end of town contributes more than we do. Can we start here? What are the big pain points for family wineries right now, and where does the support of Wine Australia hit and miss, in your opinions? Summarising the role of Wine Australia, goes like this. It’s role is to support and regulate the Australian grape and wine industry with its primary functions being Research and Development (R&D) (and sharing and commercialising results of that research), Marketing and Promotion to boost consumption of grape products here and overseas, Regulation and Compliance, especially when exporting, and User Pays activities. But I note this: Wine Australia operates under a Statutory Funding Agreement with the Australian Government, which prohibits it from engaging in political activities or acting as an industry representative. Its governance and operations aim to achieve the best possible return on investment for the Australian grape and wine sector. Does this mean it’s not the body that has any role to play in protecting us from the savagery of the duopolies, or in lobbying for government support to be directed to particular sectors, like “mum and dad” wineries? While on the government front, state and federal governments are crowing about China’s ending of the industry-strangling tariffs it had placed on Australian wine, but I haven’t seen Emanuel popping the sparkling wine cork. Does this mean there is devil in the detail? I am curbing alcohol consumption and opting for quality over quanitity. I am not alone. What do you make of this trend? What’s your message for government? Is it harder for them to care, given how many of you there are vs there being just a handful of big, headline-grabbing operators? What’s your message for consumers? Should they change buying habits? Do little changes make a difference? 01:57:17 Musical Pilgrimage In the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature song by Suedan, from the latest album, Suedan Mountain Blues, titled, Whiskey Did It.

391 - Navigating Adelaide with Disabilities Amid Well-Intentioned Interventions

In this important episode, we delve into the complexities of living with disabilities in Adelaide, set against the backdrop of the city's ongoing efforts towards inclusivity. Our guests, including David Olney, Jorja Denton, and insights from Clair Crowley of the Strong & Capable Co-operative, share their lived experiences navigating well-intended urban interventions that sometimes present mixed outcomes for individuals with different disabilities. As Adelaide seeks public feedback on its new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, this conversation aims to contribute unique perspectives to the dialogue, exploring the interplay of technology, community support, and the broader societal understanding of disability. There is no SA Drink Of The Week this week. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature the the song "Fabulous" by Rachael Leahcar, written and produced exclusively for the No Strings Attached Theatre Of Disability.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concisepage Running Sheet: Navigating Adelaide with Disabilities Amid Well-Intentioned Interventions 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week No SA Drink Of The Week this week. 00:02:32 Jorja Denton, David Olney, Clair Crowley The City of Adelaide publicly states that it's committed to making the city a welcoming and inclusive place for all people to enjoy by working toward demonstrating best practice in access and inclusion planning. And yet, even in my small circle of friends living with disability, I know about certain interventions that are great for people with certain forms of disability while making matters worse for others. With the City seeking public feedback on its new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan by 5pm, April 2, 2024, I thought we'd get a few people around a microphone to share their lived experiences and maybe this episode might be an unusual contribution to that process? My guests today are my friend, fellow podcaster, and colleague at Talked About Marketing, David Olney, another friend made through the early years of The Adelaide Show Podcast, Jorja Denton, and General Manager of the Strong & Capable Co-operative & a social innovator, Clair Crowley. I should note that Clair could not be here with us in person, today, but she has contributed some thoughts. I should also note that one of the most important aspects of her organisation, is its Peer Mentoring Program, which invites people with particular expertise and passion to mentor someone living with a disability to learn more about and engage in that field of interest. But the key thing is that this program includes mentoring BY people living with disability, not just FOR them. This is an important step in maturity for our society, and if you'd like to learn more, there's a Peer Mentoring Launch Party on Thursday, April 4, from 4.30-8pm, at Hard Days Night ADL. Launch Party invitiation. You can find info about the Co-Op and its programs over at www.strongandcapable.com.au. David and Jorja, perhaps I should get a reflection from you both by the universal, two-way flow model that Clair is developing through that program? Jorja, can you give us a snapshot of your lived experience with a disability and perhaps a "day in the life" view of how you get on in the world? David, could you do the same - giving us a snapshot of your lived experience and what a "day in the life" looks like for you? Looking at The City of Adelaide's Draft Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, there seem to be five main initiatives that are worth discussing and that will give us some more inroads into your lives. They are: Infrastructure Improvements: The plan includes specific targets for enhancing the accessibility of the city's infrastructure, such as footpath ramps, audio-tactile push buttons at crossings, and accessible bus stops. Liveable Neighbourhoods: Efforts to create more inclusive communities include the development of sensory-friendly spaces, upgraded Changing Places facilities, and the implementation of accessible community grants programs. Now, on that, I had no idea what Changing Places were and I found this definition on the Council's website: Changing Places facilities are best-practice bathrooms for people living with disability and their support person. They offer more space, a hoist and other customised features, providing dignified and purpose-built toileting and showering facilities for people with disability when you are out and about. Events and Festivals: The plan aims to make Adelaide's vibrant events scene more accessible through an accessible events project, incorporating accessibility planning checklists for event organisers and partnerships to foster access and inclusion. Business Engagement: A Business Access and Inclusion Program is proposed to improve the accessibility of city businesses, including efforts to promote inclusive businesses and support upgrades through development of skills and knowledge in the sector. Inclusive Customer and Employee Experiences: This involves training for City of Adelaide employees in inclusive practices, improvement in the accessibility of Council meetings, and a commitment to co-design and consultation activities involving people with disabilities. I'd like to wander back through these, and we might start with the last two or three, about training and promoting Council, Business, and Event management and employees to foster better access and inclusion. And there's one hurdle here that I think needs naming, and that is TIME. I feel that I'm under pressure to work much faster than ever before and if there's one thing I've noticed when organisations like No Strings work with people with disabilities, especially in physical gatherings, we all have the calm the heck down and slow down. And I mean, really slow down. Is this a tangible threat to the success of these initiatives or a mirage created by our own self-centredness? CLAIR: The common theme for me through starting my own business where I supported tourism operators to become more inclusive and where I am now with the co-operative, is that lived experience is where the value is, and even though everyone experiences their disability in their own unique way, the insights and knowledge that people with lived experience with disability can share with others is absolutely priceless and trusted. In tourism in particular we have seen inclusion come in leaps and bounds with the services they provide and their willingness to find ways to welcome more people through their doors, this refers to adapting the physical environment AND the customer experience. Many small - med owner operated businesses have an advantage in this space because they are in the frontline interacting with customers and they know the operational aspect of their business inside out, this means that when they listen to their customers to be more inclusive and they (usually) have the ability to adapt quickly and with a warm welcome. One thing I think would be an amazing asset would be the accessibility planning checklists for event organisers. Anything to make it easier and not half-hearted, is a good thing. I remember talking about having Jorja over to watch a movie at our place but none of our doors are compliant. Surely that doesn't happen with buildings today but instead of throwing shade, actually shining a light seems like a good move. The liveable neighbourhoods section is where I turn to both of you because you both live within the City Of Adelaide. How liveable is it or is it not? Let's turn to infrastructure, such as footpath ramps, audio-tactile push buttons at crossings, and accessible bus stops. Can you please take me on a tour of the good, the bad, and the ugly? How has technology enhanced your autonomy in navigating the city, and can you give examples where it fills gaps left by urban infrastructure? Technology is one thing, but human touch and support is another. I would love you both to reflect on whether or not it is important that friends, families, and colleagues support you by going the extra mile to make inclusion possible, but I want to preface this discussion by another comment from Clair. CLAIR: For my family, sport provided a pathway into a new life, after my husband's accident, he was invited to play wheelchair basketball and this was absolutely instrumental in finding his way forward. Sport continues to play an incredibly important role for us, it means we are part of a community where we can connect with like minded people, contribute and participate, it keeps us fit and healthy and always striving forward. It also opened up doors we didn't even know existed, for example we got to live in Northern Italy for a Wheelchair Basketball season and la dolce vita! In Italy it was really evident that good customer service is what makes the biggest difference to how we feel we 'fit in'. The built environment had its challenges, but we were always met with an Italian that was ready to help as needed. Clair mentioned sport, how important is the visibility of paralympic athletes in changing perceptions about disability, and what more can be done to support and promote disability sports? And turning to the arts and popular culture, can you identify TV shows or movies that either positively represent disability or perpetuate stereotypes? How do these representations influence public perceptions? What are some closing thoughts for those of us who are "not considered to be living with disabilities", from the perspective of inclusion, and just being a decent human? 00:59:57 Musical Pilgrimage In the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature song by Rachael Leahcar, written and produced exclusively for No Strings Attached Theatre Of Disability. Rachael says it reflects the “esprit de corps” she experienced being in amongst the whole No Strings team for her final placement for her uni studies (Bachelor of Disability and Developmental Education). And I quote: “I looked up what esprit de corps means and I completely agree with this and all the other sentiments. This is a huge team effort and I'm in total awe of how everyone worked together so seamlessly, navigating obstacles and making snap decisions sometimes. Everyone has so much passion for the arts and I want to thank you all, as a performer with a disability myself, for giving the opportunity for people to be portrayed as ACTORS instead of characters with disability (nothing wrong with that as well, just a rare opportunity). The actors have often commented how great it is to be accepted and have their strengths recognised.” The song has been gifted to No Strings and if you'd like to support the company by buying a copy, please contact them at nostringsattached.org.au. As an aside, Rachael actually wrote and recorded the song in the week before the No Strings end of year showcase, AMPLIFY, which was also the week just before her wedding! I also note that while she wrote this specifically for the show, everyone embraced it as their own personal theme song.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

390 - Protecting Native Plants From Kangaroos In The Adelaide Hills

James Rolevink and his wife, Rai, received just under $30,000 to look after vegetation on their Forreston property. That money was a small slice of the $1.3 million paid out to private landowners late last year as part of the State Government's Native Vegetation Heritate Agreement program. James has a legally-binding agreement to look after specified native vegetation and his story is fascinating. (The image on the show notes for this episode is the Blue Fairy Orchid, taken by James Rolevink). The SA Drink Of The Week is The Soloist 2021 Shiraz by Coriole, and it does link in nicely with our main topic. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature the new single "Humble Heart" by West Thebarton, offering a taste of their upcoming album "Mongrel Australia." Plus a special cheerio to U3A Flinders (University of the Third Age), where Steve spoke recently about 10 years of podcasting. We hear from one "volunteer", Elizabeth Bleby, and we should thank Steve's mum, Yvonne Davis, for lobbying for the talking spot.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concisepage Running Sheet: Protecting Native Plants From Kangaroos In The Adelaide Hills 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:04:38 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week this week is the 2021 The Soloist Shiraz from Coriole. As Steve notes in his tasting, apart from loving this wine, he compares the nature of The Soloist vineyard to the work James is doing on behalf of the native plants he is now custodian of. All will be explained. 00:08:44 James Rolevink After losing everything in the Cudlee Creek bushfires, James Rolevink and his wife, Rai, bought a property at Forreston in the Adelaide Hills, hoping to start a new chapter in their lives. Well, little did they realise that before too long, the State Government gave them close to $30,000 to look after their garden. Well, that's not exactly the situation. As you're about to hear, James received this money to help his family protect rare and threatened native plants from, among other things, kangaroos. James, welcome to The Adelaide Show podcast. Before we get into the grant and the plants, I need to ask about Cudlee Creek because I am 100%  sure that I have no idea what it would be like to lose everything in a bushfire. In the hope that it might spur more of us to take our bushfire planning more seriously, what are some of the consequences of the bushfire that took you by surprise, that you didn't foresee? Today is tipped to reach 40 degrees. How present is the threat of bushfire in your mind? Our native plants have evolved to regenerate after bushfires, before we talk about them, can you see now that new things were generated within you and Rai as a result of this experience? Now, I'm told that when you and Rai saw this property, everybody else was looking left while you were looking right. What had caught your eye that the others were missing? Had you always known about native plants? What prompted your interest? Something that was counterintuitive when I first heard about your story, was native plants being threatened by kangaroos. To be fair, I suppose we have squeezed roos out of their habitat and we have put lots of paddocks of vegetation into place that helps them breed. Can you talk us through the situation and how it really sent you down the Heritage Agreement rabbit hole, so to speak? Actually, our episode on the History Of Rabbits In Australia is fascinating and worth a listen. Do any of the native plants on your property bear fruit that can be eaten because then I could say the grant is "money for jam"? I mentioned the temperature earlier, it's going to hit 40 today. We know native plants cope with bushfires by regenerating afterwards, but how do they get through these boiling days? Do these plants attract native birds? They can't protect themselves from kangaroos, what about introduced grazing animals, any luck there? Did our colder, wetter start to summer impact anything? What will you be expecting to see develop through autumn and winter? Any tips for home gardeners in relation to natives? And if someone in a bushfire zone asked you what is the minimum they could do to get by, safely, what would you recommend? 00:49:44 Musical Pilgrimage In the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature the new single from West Thebarton, Humble Heart. West Thebarton is hitting the road this year with its ‘Mongrel Australia’ Album Tour With Guests OK Hotel. The single, Humble Heart, is from their new studio album, Mongrel Australia, which will drop on March 22, 2024. If you're up for their high octane rock, you'll want to get tickets to see them live at The Gov on Friday, June 21, 2024. Tickets at westthebarton.com.

389 - The Economic Weather Forecast For Adelaide

It’s estimated that half of all Australians are now living from payday to payday, with no money saved up for emergencies. And yet last weekend’s opening of the Fringe saw record, pre-covid levels of people on the streets of Adelaide. We will get stuck into these seeming contradictions with our special guest, Jordon Tomopoulos from the Adelaide Economic Development Authority. Here’s a taste. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Atlas Genius has two new singles that just dropped. We’ll play one of them and build a link between them, Taylor Swift, and P!NK!

Oh, and here’s our index of all episode in one concisepage Running Sheet: The Economic Weather Forecast For Adelaide 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week There is no SA Drink Of The Week this week this week. 00:05:00 The Economic Weather Forecast For Adelaide There is no doubt climate change is making our weather unpredictable, but what are things like in the economic realm? Jordon Tomopoulos from the Adelaide Economic Development Agency, spends his days conducting economic research looking for insights into data and he joins us to share some of his findings. This talk is partly about data and partly about sentiment. According to some data from the financial comparison site, Finder, half of all Australians are now living pay cheque to pay cheque with no savings, with no money saved up for emergencies. Meanwhile, an Advertiser story towards the end of the first year of Covid, stated that it’s essential to transfer any spare cash into a buffer account that could see you through 3 to 6 months.  It quoted Dominic Beattie, editor of online financial resource Savings.com.au, telling readers to prioritise that buffer account. The article warns people that while it’s tempting to go to the pub or eat out now that restrictions are lifting, recessions can last for a while – you don’t know what might happen down the track.” And now I turn to you, Jordon. At the Adelaide Economic Development Agency, you want to see a thriving economy. Before we dive into your data and analysis, as a fellow citizen here in South Australia, what’s your reaction to these two bleak items, especially when your latest weekend foot traffic report shows people have flocked to the city for the opening of the Adelaide Fringe? I just came back from Melbourne for Taylor Swift. The city was swarming with swifties. I hear that bead bracelet kits were sold out for months in the lead up and that international leaders were begging Tay Tay to Stay Stay in their countries for the economic impact. The Australian reports that hotel occupancy during the Friday and Saturday nights of the concerts was sitting at 83%, which is pretty impressive when you consider how many hotels exist in Melbourne. However, we have Pink coming to Adelaide next week and your numbers suggest a bigger impact? What is the importance of big events like concerts, conferences, and sport (AFL Gather Round), events like the Fringe, etc (although. I get the impression they are like Carbs for the city – we get a big rush and then we’re craving again. Is that fair? And is there anything that provides that lovely, Protein-like, slow release goodness over time? Hindley Street has been in the news with the City of Adelaide calling some special meetings to address the rapidly shrinking number of nightclubs and bars. This begs the question: Are there business models that rely too heavily on over consumption of alcohol? I ask because La Trobe University recently published a report titled, Generation Dry: why young people are drinking less. How can we cultivate that “buzz-based entertainment” when less people are chasing that high-margin buzz product? Has working from home stopped spending or just spread it out more through the suburbs? And can we get too much of a good thing? Tay Tay made us wait for going on stage – and we got the pay off. I am taking a break from Fringe because I was becoming jaded. Is there a role for peaks and troughs in a healthy economy (absense makes the heart grow fonder), or does that make you shiver? What was 2023 like? How is 2024 looking? 00:41:12 Musical Pilgrimage In the Musical Pilgrimage, Steven Jeffrey had told us a new Atlas Genius song was on the way and it just dropped this week. So we’ll listen to Nobody Loves Like You. This fits in well with our discussion this week because we looked at the economic impact of big artists performing in a city, especially those that aren’t saturating our radio stations. Atlas Genius has a huge following in the USA and a passionate group of followers in Australia, so when I saw someone starting a petition to bring Atlas Genius back to their hometown of Adelaide, the main thing I can hear is the sound of cash registers tinkling all around the city.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

As he explains, the unrelenting toll of women being murdered by blokes has him distraut and feeling helpless, so he’s reached out for some wisdom about what to do when you notice or suspect domestic violence and/or coercive control being carried out by a mate or by yourself. You’ll hear from the CEO of OARS Community Transitions, Leigh Garrett, who will give us some insights and urge us to spread the word about Don’t Become That Man (DBTM) Counselling Service. Steve also mentions the next Pay Our Respects 2024 event on Saturday 20th January. The sixth Pay Our Respects to Australian Murdered Women event will be held on Saturday 20th January 2024 on the steps of Parliament House, gathering at 9:00- 9:15am for a 9:30am start finishing at approximately 11:30am. The gathering honours the Australian women murdered in 2023. If it’s your first time hearing about this (as was the case for Steve), Pay Our Respects has been individually honouring all the women murdered through gendered violence across Australia in the previous year. In the SA Drink Of The Week we have both an Olive Oil and an Italian style wine from Coriole, McLaren Vale. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we hear from Steven Jeffrey again (of Atlas Genius fame), with a new song by Eden Of Avalon.

The first is Coriole Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2022. The vineyard has been producing olive oil for 30 years and this latest vintage is sublime; pungent, grassy, rich, intense, and, as Steve discovers, peppery. The second is the Coriole Negroamaro 2023. This is a light-bodied wine, very fragrant and perfumed, perfectly balanced for chilling slightly and serving over summer.

Steven wrote this song in 2014 when he was moving to LA full time to concentrate on the music dream. He was in a long term relationship but he knew the distance was putting a strain on that. The lyrics came to him while he was flying between LA and Denver.

There is so much goodness in the album, that we have them in the studio to walk us through a selection of songs about this state and this city, which has been named the Coolest Place In Australia by the Wall Street Journal. Buy Back in ADL on Bandcamp. Fergus, you've been on the Adelaide Show before, and you have 100% South Australian bona fides, having been born in Whyalla and grown up in Clare. Plus, you are married to one of our longest term listeners, Andrea Ferguson. I picture Johnny Cash walking along a railway line in the country and picking out a tune like, I Walk The Line. When did you first write a song based on a location in South Australia? Dr D. In the early days of our podcast, you had to be born and bred in SA to get a gong, but having moved here from the UK after your frequent visits gradually hardwired SA into your DNA, you are warmly welcomed. You've performed on five continents including legendary venues in London and Chicago. Is there a tangible, physical difference between the venues in those places compared to venues in South Australia OR if they feel more significant, is that due to the aura of those cities? It took me 4 or 5 songs on my first listen to fight through the echoes of cultural cringe. I’ve spoken about this with Peter Goers about how I don’t bat an eyelid when a song talks about Baton Rouge or New York or Chicago or London, but when it mentions anywhere in Australia, let alone South Australia, it feels tacky or too familiar. I don’t think it’s actually cultural cringe because I’m very proud of our country and our townships. I think it might more closely be linked to the saying that a profit is never recognised or respected in their homeland. Let's get going with the title track, Back in ADL. BACK IN ADL (17:35) When you are writing about places, how do you stop them from sounding like TV commercials or slogans or jingles for property developments? Henley Square is one of those songs that comes very close to sounding like this, but so, too, does the title track, Back in ADL. The line take me to your deli counter and let me taste your ways because there's lots of innuendo there especially with smallgoods ... or is that just me? In our early days, we had the Adelaide Visa Council because people made lazy jokes about Adelaide being boring and Paul Barry from Media Watch was very cynical about Adelaide earning the Coolest City label from the Wall Street Journal. Let's listen to his cowardly backhander from a recent episode of Media Bites. I thought we were past these lazy jokes. Your thoughts? The second track on the album, Gulf of St. Vincent, contains the O word. Is that pedantic to query that? Is that just Total Adelaide? Talking of Vincent, I think St Vincent Street is a great song that needs to be included, all about about a particular female police officer. VINCENT STREET (36:00) Talking of streets, let's address the myth of naming conventions and the belief you cannot cross the king. In episode 28 of The Adelaide Show, around the 45-minute mark, Keith Conlon highlights that it was popularly believed that the reason none of our city streets continue either side of King William Street is because you CANNOT CROSS THE KING. PLAY KEITH CONLON INSERT Have you caught much flak about that song? CROSS OUT THE KING (47:50) When you get into history, I note that This Is Our Beef has an early Redgum feel. Beef Rebellion story THIS IS OUR BEEF (58:05) The thing about writing songs about places we know and live it, is that we all have stories that intersect with your songs. Do people call out during the show or want to talk to you afterwards? FOUR TREES (MIRNU WIRRA) (1:08:01) If I were at your show, I'd be chewing your ear about Johnnie's Gone Away because I worked at John Martins in the 80s in the West Lakes store in boyswear. And my maternal grandman, Lillian Field, she worked in the basement of the city store in the late 1930s when a young man from an engineering company turned up to fix the lifts. He soon became my grandpa. Why did you guys write about John Martins, which we're reflecting on the day after the 2023 Christmas Pageant which was a gift to SA from John Martins for most of its 131 years. JOHNNIE'S GONE AWAY (1:17:00) Finally, your Fringe show has won awards, and gotten great reviews. What is next? Has your song, Letter To Paul Kelly, caught Paul's attention? LETTER TO PAUL KELLY (1:28:45) 00:00:00 Musical Pilgrimage This whole episode was an extended Musical Pilgrimage segment.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

I grew up with my dad playing "hits of the war years" over and over again and I always wondered what a quartermaster was. Well, fast forward to today and I am sitting next to a woman who has spent some of her army career as a quartermaster. I refer to Retired Major, Meredith Burgess. Meredith, we're sitting in the Magill RSL Sub Branch, where you are President (she is also Vice President of the RSL in South Australia) and on November 18, 2023, I'll be quiz master for an 80s trivia quiz being run by the Magill Sunrise Rotary Club to raise money for your programs here. Before we talk about them, and before you help me wrap my head around the role of a quartermaster, there is some South Australian business to attend to. You grew up in the wheat and sheep area of Lameroo and finished your schooling in Murray Bridge. What do you remember most about life in that part of Australia at that time? I worked for 7 years at 5MU and would often drive out to regional towns to do interviews in my HG70 panel van without any knowledge of mechanics. Was the tyranny of distance part of the reason that attracted you to getting under the hood? In other words, was it a simple survival mechanism? This drive you had for motor mechanics and metal fabrication led you to TAFE and then you joined the Army Apprentice School at Albury-Wodonga in the second class of female trainees where only 4 out of 13 graduated. My daughters have demanded that I ask you to share what it was like being outnumbered on grounds of gender and what enabled you to get through and then later get encouraged to undertake training as an officer at Duntroon? You've had various roles as quartermaster, what is it, in layperson's terms because to the best of my knowledge it was the person responsible for making sure supplies got to where they're needed? To get a sense of why RSL clubs and services are so important, I think us lay people need to remember the extremes service people are exposed to. Sometimes this is combat but at other times it is the aftermath of combat and atrocities and just squalid conditions. Would you mind just painting a picture or two of the conditions you and your fellow service people experienced when you were among the first to arrive in East Timor in 1999? You're on the record discussing the difficulties you faced in adjusting back to civilian life but it seems that your involvement in this RSL club has not only been good for you but also good for the club. Can you take us through the club's resurrection over the past 10 years, and then we'll look at some of the services. What keeps you going? What feedback do you get? Can we be part of it - non service people? Is there any protocol to follow? I spoke at a Mess In night for the RAAF at Edinburgh a few years ago and I had 17 pages of protocol to read, including the Passing Of The Port. 00:51:20 Deb Herring A theme of the conversation with our previous guest, Meredith Burgess, will also run through our next chat. That theme is the human drive to build community even amid change. This is given great focus in the lives of Australian Defence Force personnel because they are posted to different locations with great frequency, having to pull up roots and replant them over and over again. Deborah Herring has lived that life when she was in the army - twice. She's now living and working in the Barossa working as Chair and Editor of The Top Ender Tri-Services Magazine (which is a magazine for service personnel and veterans) while also running an events and tourism business, Barossa Fun Factory. Deb, you're settled in the Barossa now. I assume that's better than being moved about all the time, but what's it really like because us humans learn to adapt. Is it a challenge to learn to be in one place? How much did you move about in the Army? What do "relationships" look like in the defence force? Is it hard to build friendships or do you get better at bonding faster? What happens if the team on a particular deployment is not ideal? Meredith Burgess mentioned she felt quite lost when she left the Army. What was your experience? Your work with The Top Ender seems to be driven by a fire in your belly to give veterans a sense of connection. What fuels that fire? What sort of stories do you cover? At first look, nothing seems further from being in the defence force than running a company called Barossa Fun Factory. But there is some shared DNA, isn't there, because you talk a lot about your pop up events and corporate workshops as not only creating a sense of fun but deeply building connections between participants? What were the first things you ran? Are there regular events for kids? Halloween is just ahead of us at the time of recording. Special calendar events get you springing into action, don't they? You have run some successful corporate events, too, that have a bit if "kid's fun" to them. Talk us through an example and how it's linked to greater team engagement? And with Xmas upon us, I want to finish on something I think is excellent. You stage events called Mingle Bells, which transform the typically awkward or sometimes drunken company christmas event into a time of real connection. Finally, Remebrance Day is upon us. Is that a significant day for you, or is Anzac Day stronger. What do these days mean to you? 01:26:43 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Shake A Leg Like Elvis by Dino Jag. Given that Elvis did his time in the Army, it's only fair we feature a tribute to him by our own Dino Jag, on this pre-Remembrance Day episode.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

385 - Davine Intervention In Adelaide Theatre

The brain, heart, and sould behind Davine Productions is David Gauci, and he's our guest today. The SA Drink Of The Week in from Yalumba - The Signature. This is partly because the wine is superb but also because Yalumba has long been a supporter of Davine Productions. And we'll be joined in the tasting by winemaker, Kevin Glastonbury. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Kaurna Cronin has a new song out and it's made itself into an ear worm, competing with the soundtrack of A New Brain!

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concisepage Running Sheet: Davine Intervention In Adelaide Theatre00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:03:09 SA Drink Of The Week 2019 Yalumba The Signature. One of the signaturies of the 49th vintage of The Signature, is red winemaker at Yalumba, Kevin Glastonbury. He sits down to taste the wine with Steve Davis, as part of Yalumba's ongoing support of the arts through Davine Productions. 00:41:29 David Gauci, Davine Productions In 2013, the same year The Adelaide Show began, David Gauci put his roots down in Adelaide and started the theatre company, Davine Productions. Prior to this and alongside this, he has had a 25+ year career in professional theatre, as well as being a teacher to countless performers in a number of colleges and institutions including the University of Adelaide Elder Conservatorium. At the time of recording, in October 2023, Davine's about to open a production of A New Brain. This is a delightfully quirky musical that twists left and right in surprising ways and bestows upon us such unexpected rhymes like: If you make me cry, Then I’ll probably have to kill you, I will you,  know. Learn more about Davine Productions and get tickets here. October 13-21, 2023, Star Theatres, Sir Donald Bradman Drive. David, we'll come back to A New Brain but while we're on the topic of lyrics, do you have some favourite ones from the show? I almost tripped over on the beach today when I heard the lyric in the "children's" song that went:Or when someone says,“Would you like to lose your virginity?”Someone with who you haveNo affinity We just celebrated 10 years of The Adelaide Show and its reason for existance which was, initially, to fight the lazy way people used to use Adelaide as the butt of jokes for being boring. And yet, there you were, also in 2013, launching a not-for-profit, non-professional theatre company in Adelaide, with exceedingly high standards and backed by the likes of a broadway composer, a former director of the Sydney Theatre Company, a former head of acting at NIDA, and a much-loved national celebrity with multiple logies to his name. Can you share with us the moment when Davine Productions materialised and the importance of it being in Adelaide? How do you maintain the high standard of excellence that Davine Productions is known for because in a professional company you have a big stick - you can dock someone's pay or fire them. But in community theatre, we all need each other. What's your secret? There is much said about humans becoming more selfish and closed these days, so over the past 10 years, has that impact shifted your approach to finding humans who are willing to "give it their all" for the love of performing, when it's tempting to stay home and coccoon? I've seen (and reviewed) a couple of your shows - Beautiful, The Carole King Musical, and Summer Of 69 - how do you go about selecting shows for Davine Productions? What do you look for? What is the message or feeling you want the audience to walk away with from a Davine Productions show? On the Adelaide Show, we've previously discussed the profound impact that teachers can have on us (especially in episode 291 in which my daughter, AJ, interviews two important teachers in her life, Kaye and Jenny), so, I'm curious to know which of the three teachers during your primary years had the greatest impact: Sr Carmel with her piano lessons and theory, Mrs Mulvahill with her elocution lessons, or Mrs Tilley and her singing lessons? How does your role as a teacher at the University of Adelaide Elder Conservatorium influence your work at Davine Productions? Davine is, of course, the feminine of David but it also means Beloved. That makes it a great name for a theatre company. But it also sounds a little like Divine. I'd love to learn more about your adventure at a seminary, studying theology. Why did you do it, what made you leave? David, it's fair to say you and I both love musical theatre but what's your definition of what is "good" musical theatre? I love Les Mis, My Fair Lady, Urine Town, The Producers, Superstar, Fiddler On The Roof, anything by Stephen Sondheim, but despise Phantom Of The Opera. There's a delicate balance in the recipe - nourishing melodies, clever word play, a story line that primes us for emotion or farce or both. Do you agree? Your new production is, A New Brain, with music and lyrics by William Finn, inspired by Finn's own experience with an arteriovenous malformation and the healing power of art. Can you set it up for us? 01:37:44 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Eraser by Kaurna Cronin. Eraser is a great concept for a song, when someone is the ink unto your paper. Try as you like, you can't erase them. It just shows Kaurna is still on form and there are many comments in his online places of people saying the song is now stuck in their heads. David, is that the sign of a great song - generally, let alone in musical theatre?Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

384 - The Voice And The Voices: From The Referendum To Community Friday Nights At Kanmantoo

It's interesting that Australia is poised to vote on giving First Nationsl people a voice to parliament, but for many of us we are not familiar with the voices around us. How many of us know our neighbours or interact regularly with people in our community, stopping for a chat and a shared experience? In this episode, our political pundit, Robert Godden returns to "read the tea leaves" of where Australia is at regarding voter intention for the October 14, 2023, referendum. This segment will either age really well or age really poorly. Then, we hear a number of voices from people who have gathered at the weekly, Friday night, open mic evenings at Carob and Hare in the main street of Kanmantoo. The Carob business owners and curator of these community events, Donna Twycross, takes Steve on a journey through Carob, and then expands on her vision for regular community nights at her venue. We also hear from Stevie Ray Wonder (MC for the Friday night events), Kathryn and Peter Roberts (local residents), and Garry Duncan (artist). The SA Drink Of The Week in this episode is a Gipsie Jack Cabernet from Langhorne Creek. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, our featured artist is another performer from Carob and Hare, Rod Mitchell, who is one half of the collaboation, BW4.

This wine is the "house red" at Carob and Hare and is an intriguing drop, over-delivering on value with every sip. 00:08:54 Robert Godden and The Voice Referendum Our political commentator, Robert Godden, joins Steve to read the tea leaves of where Australia is at as it approaches the October 14, 2023, referendum on The Voice. 00:39:44 Donna Twycross, Carob and Hare, and the people and performers of Kanmantoo Every Friday night from 5.30-ish until 9-ish, locals and visitor amble in to Carob and Hare on the main street of Kanmantoo, to eat simple food, have a drink, and either listen to or perform music (or both), with an environment of inclusive warmth. The mystical and energetic conjurer of this gathering is the owner of Carob and Hare, Donna Twycross. Donna fell in love with carob when she was in her teens because it tasted great (to her) and met her needs of being a healthy addition to her diet. Today, she produces Hare Balls and other treats using locally grown carob, from our friends Michael and Jam Jolley at The Australian Carob Co. in Booborowie, South Australia. As you'll hear in the discussion, carob is a sweet edible pod that comes from the carob tree. It's been cultivated for over 4000 years and if you get good pods, it tastes very good. That wasn't Steve's experience growing up, but Donna helps put that into perspective. Aside from her carob business, Donna explains the rationale for the weekly community gatherings she hosts, as well as special, monthly, Saturday night themed events. She also shares a sneak peek into her new, Sunday afternoon events themed around Alice in Wonderland, should you happen to visit Kanmantoo from mid-October onwards. In this chat we also meet Stevie Ray Wonder (not his real name, but all will be explained), who has fallen into the role of MCing and stage managing the Friday night events. We also meet locals, Kathryn and Peter Roberts. They moved here many years ago and have reflections to share, including some from Peter who has been driving the school bus for a long time, watching kids grow as he gets them from point A to point B. Finally, we chat with artist, Garry Duncan. Garry is another local and a regular and his artwork not only adorns boardrooms around the world, silos around South Australia, and a variety of galleries everywhere, but it hangs in pride of place around Carob and Hare.​ 01:42:01 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Plague Of Monsters by BW4. BW4 is a partnership between Steve Hearne and Rod Mitchell. Rob Performed at Carob and Hare, despite being a long way from his hometown of Andamooka (which is a hefty stone's throw from another source of opals, Coober Pedy, which recently featured on The Adelaide Show). BW4 is named after a redundant microwave tower on the Stuart Highway just south of Pimba because Rod was fascinated by Central Australian deserts and disputed Australian History. That note makes this song more relevant than ever because The Voice debate has seemed to release angels as well as monsters as people reflect on what the referendum is all about.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

That’s a Portagaff you’ve made, with Coopers Stout and lemonade...."I know it particularly well because it was my dads best friend and my godfather who starred in the ad and sang the jingle. (Don Barker. Aka Detective Sgt Harry White in Homicide.)I wish that ad was on YouTube. He sang one verse in a manly voice dressed in manly clothes, the next in a falsetto voice and a white suit, then they had the split screen of the two singing a duet. David Fuller was the ad man responsible for the Portagaff ad. According to SA Life: The ad for Coopers Stout and lemonade — “mix them up, you’ll be amazed” — was a stick-in-your-head jingle that was another of Fuller’s early efforts. It was recorded for a cost of $720 and ran for six or seven years. 00:26:59 Nostalgia Discussion Topics for discussion: Don Violi on cutting Don Dunstan's hair (along with commentary about hairdressing icons of Adelaide, and his work cutting Jack Thompson's hair along with other cast members of Sunday Too Far Away) The Clifton Pugh stobie pole controversy - nude Adam and Eve at Don's new hair salon in the 80s - got worldwide coverage and Don Dunstan opened it Opening of Rundle Mall, and the redirection of traffic away from Devil's Elbow The restaurant explosion - move away from buffets and dinner dances (Hilton with Cheong Liew, the revolving restaurant, Chloes, Don Giovanni, even a naughty one I remember) Birdman Rally, Soapbox Derby Bazz and Pilko (some of their hijinks) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pgu7-rCLyk Touch Of Elegance Pat Davies Figurama Slimming Salon (and other fashion/fad icons) 01:26:11 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Reckless Moment by Courtney Robb.

382 - The Adelaide Show Nigel Style With John Schumann

During the second year of The Adelaide Show podcast, the lineup transitions from a trio of hosts to an interview format with one main guest and two hosts. Nigel Dobson became the permanent co-host, along with Steve Davis. In this time, the podcast had some wonderful innovations from Nigel, not least of which was the Is It News segment, and a decision to hold topics to a high standard of requiring an evidence-base. There is no SA Drink Of The Week in this episode, although we do sip on a 2018 Highbank Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon during recording. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, John Schumann joins Steve to talk about his remake of I Was Only 19 with The Waifs.

381 - Another Boring Thursday Night In Adelaide 10th Birthday

The Adelaide Show podcast began in 2013 with a mission: to challenge the notion that Adelaide is boring. This special episode is a reunion of the three founders, Steve Davis, Colin Richard, and Brett Monten. "I remember meeting Colin Richard sharing our frustration at the lazy jokes by comedians on the eastern seaboard about how boring Adelaide was," recalls podcast co-founder, Steve Davis. "We decided to start a podcast and name it after the Redgum song, One More Boring Thursday Night In Adelaide, as an ironic counter attack." Another Boring Thursday Night In Adelaide was launched on August 29, 2013, and one of the first segments was called The Adelaide Visa Council, in which the podcasters read out tweets by users who referenced Adelaide being boring. The "evidence" was discussed and if the offending tweets were deemed unfounded, the trio revoked the Twitter (now X) user's Adelaide visa, and let them know. "Those who fell foul of our deliberations would often engage in discussion and most of the time they recanted their allegations and had their visas restored, including a former leader of the Adelaide United cheer squad, who was terribly apologetic." Early features included regular segments on health (the Made to Move Minute with exercise physiologist Max Martin), and news (headline highlights by InDaily's David Washington). Its early, conversational format transformed to a structured, long form interview program by episode 80, at which time it rebadged as The Adelaide Show, having taken credit for reducing online slurs against Adelaide. The SA Drink Of The Week is a 2016 Highbank Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Ben Searcy and his haunting song, Wangary.

And he said yes. Shortly thereafter, I spoke to Brett, and he said yes. The driving themes for me were frustration over the lazy, unfunny jokes and barbs that interstaters and some locals made about Adelaide being boring, a desperate need I had to get out of the rut of working seven days a week, and my unquenchable love for the art of radio.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Reflecting On 10 Years Of Adelaide Show Podcast Community With Owen Eastwood 00:00:00 Intro Here's the plan for our 10th birthday Month Of Episodes. Tonight, it's Owen Eastwood. Next Tuesday night, we will release our first Retrospective episode with the boys who created our original manifestation of Another Boring Thursday Night In Adelaide. The following Tuesday night, the second Restrospective episode will feature Nigel Dobson. And the final Retrospective will feature Adelaide hairdresser and trivia extraordinaire, Don Violi. At the time of recording, the current wording on the homepage of our website distills the meaningful, human insights that Owen Eastwood shares in his work. It reads: Welcome to The Adelaide Show podcast community. You are not alone. There are hundreds of fellow South Australians awaiting you in our episodes. Have a listen. Many of them will inspire you to continue (or discover) an endeavour that fulfills you. We have a great community here in South Australia. While it’s not perfect, it has sustained many people to build connections and follow passions in ways have enabled our state to punch above its weight on the world stage. But as Dr Jane Goodall said back in episode 42, the best way to make our world a better place is to start with the square metre you’re standing on, and build from there. To help you find “your people”, we’ve sorted our episodes into categories. If you browse the list below you’ll be able to start with themes and topics closer to your heart. That said, in the process of putting the passion of South Australia on centre stage, we uncover some surprising people an insights, so we also encourage you to chance your arm and listen to some random episodes. It might just be what you needed to hear. If this is your first listen. Welcome. I hope you enjoy this and feel encouraged to explore other episodes, as well as let friends know about The Adelaide Show. If you're a regular, thank you very very much. Knowing you are there and occasionally hearing from you is a very important part of a community endeavour like this. It's been hard work, but it's been an absolute joy, and it has introduced me to many many people and places throughout South Australia. There's more where they came from. How much longer will this continue? I do not know. But for now, I intend to keep making every conversation count and I will continue to be grateful for every minute you let me put the passion of South Australia on centre stage. 00:08:37 SA Drink Of The Week We have a special wine this episode, the 2016 Zema Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. It's special because one of my fondest memories was the road trip Nigel Dobson and I took down to Mount Gambier to record a special interview with Maria and Walter from Caffe Belgiorno. On that night, we drank the same wine, but it was a 2012. You can relive that night, here: Episode 139, Mount Gambier Is Noyce Ployce: Stories From Caffe Belgiorno. 00:14:21 Belonging with Owen Esastwood Owen Eastwood is an author and performance coach, among other things, who happens to be a New Zealander of Māori descent. He works with some of the world’s leading athletes, sporting teams, business leaders, entrepreneurs and performing artists. Over summer, I read his book, Belonging, The Ancient Code of Togetherness, and it has profoundly impacted my life, not least for Owen's engaging description of Whakapapa, a Māori idea which embodies our universal human need to belong. They say hindsight is 20:20 vision and as I look back on 10 years of creating my passion project, The Adelaide Show, I can't help be think I've missed the bullseye of making something truly grounded in community. To that end, I'm honoured to have Owen on the line from the UK to distill his concepts of Community and Belonging, and hopefully tease out some approaches to grounding this, or any future projects, more squarely within one's community. Owen, I truly recommend our listeners to read your book, Belonging, but for the purposes of this interview, I fear I need to ask you to help define a few terms and lay some foundations. The first is a definition of Whakapapa. The second is that moment when you became aware of the power of being told, you belong. In your book, your sports stories are superb but working with the commanders of NATO was a really grounding way of applying your approach to community. Can you explain what you did with them and what impact it had? How do you define the human urge to belong? I think you gave it great context in the sandpaper affair when Australia played South Africa in test cricket? How aware or ignorant are we of our need to belong, especially in light of Prof Anna Lembke's book, Dopamine Nation, in which she says we have pleasure on tap. Is that numbing our awareness? How did you interpret the more recent controversy of Australia's wicketkeeper, Carey, stumping or running out England's Bairstow? I am watching the women's FIFA world cup. I get a strong sense that the Matilda's seem to have some bond that seems more than just wanting to win for a team. What signs do you look for through the filter of Whakapapa or community? Now, the big question for The Adelaide Show. I feel like I have glanced the surface of community. What questions, what thinking, what conversations can help ground a community endeavour? 00:58:09 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is La La by Suedan. Suedan is a dynamic blues and roots duo formed in 2016 by Sue and Dan, two talented musicians with a passion for creating soul-stirring music.

Rainer Jozeps In The House With No Books

Do you have books in your home or workplace? And, perhaps more importantly, do you read any of them? Our guest today, Rainer Jozeps, says the presence of books is a symbol of your curiosity and your interest in engaging with the world (my words). However, that utterance was a small park of a bigger issue he drew attention to in In Review, namely, our state government’s dropping of the ball (so to speak), when it comes to arts funding vs sports funding. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, thoughtful singer/songwriter, Lucas Day. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of one segment?

We’d greatly appreciate it. And please talk about us and share our episodes on social media, it really helps build our community. Oh, and here’s our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Rainer Jozeps In The House With No Books 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week No SA Drink Of The Week this episode. 00:02:32 Rainer Jozeps Books on bookshelves, news avoidance, ignorance, cocooning, and art making. These five topics were woven into an intriguing piece in InReview by Rainer Jozeps, entitled, South Australia Has Become Like A House With No Books. Rainer has been involved in Australia’s arts industry for more 30 years, holding senior executive roles with the Australian Elizabethan Theatre Trust, Adelaide Festival Centre, West Australian Ballet, Australian Dance Theatre and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Rainer, I’d like to use your article to give structure to this conversation, even though I’m anticipating that we will do an awful lot of colouring outside the lines. Your article begins by recounting your many visits to display homes to sate your curiosity about what was being offered by builders, noting that you’d leave with an empty feeling in the pit of your stomach because the homes had no provision for books. You then quote Greek philosopher, Cicero, who said “a house with no books is like a body with no soul”. I’d like to explore this a little because my initial reaction was to cheer your claim that “books inspire creativity, excite the imagination and stimulate the intellect”, but then I realised that I have a wall or two of books at home and many have not been touched for years. Do you think there’s intrinsic value in “the having of books” or are you assuming that those with books actually read them? Does the presence of books create a more thoughtful headspace? David Olney noted that seeing books can spark conversation. Our books are on our phones – perhaps our screens could run slideshows? Russ Roberts from the Econtalk Podcast says if we read a book a week, we’ll probably read about 2,500 books in our lifetime. That’s not many. Are there any you believe are a must – either by title or genre? The next theme in your article is ignorance, defined as the lack of knowledge. You argue ignorance can be a chosen state (you realise other people know things you don’t know), or it can simply be that you are unaware of there being things you don’t know. You note that ethicists call the former “recognised ignorance” and the latter “primary ignorance”. This drew recollections of the Johari Window but also the toxic saturation of conspiracy theories that thrive in this Donal Trump-led era of Fake News. Setting aside mainstream news consumption for the moment, are you hopeful or pessimistic about our society’s chances of shaking free from this almost ubiquitous, heavy veil of ignorance? I sense there are First Principles at plan here. No matter how deep the proliferation social media, if we all chose to take heed of Socrates’ dictim, that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” we might create space between hearing things and reacting to them. Do we need meditation before education? I did talkback radio for a number of years and I was always dumbfounded by vocal callers who robustly stated their position on anything you put in front of them, within a millisecond. My intuition would suggest their arguments were flawed, but I always needed more time and openness from them to investigate what their beliefs were based on. Needless to say, they were never open to that. Have you mixed with such people. Have you developed any strategies, not to trick them, but to engage them in reflection? And how important is it to actually challenge bad, stereotypical ideas? I ask this because psychologist and writer Adam Mastroianni has eloquently argued on Econtalk that, “our minds are like the keep of a castle protecting our deepest held values and beliefs from even the most skilled attacks. The only problem with this design for self-preservation is that it also can keep out wisdom that might be both useful and true.” He says there is little to do to change people’s minds; you can’t access our brains through our ears. Your thoughts? The third theme is the link between ignorance and “news avoidance”. What is news avoidance and what do we know about it? I am a former journalist and I get news from a glance through the ABC app, a longer dwell time on the Al Jazeera app, occasional reads of the Ukraine independent app which I subscrib to, Zaborona, and the In Daily newsletter when I see it. That keeps me abreast of most timely stories but for “colour, as I confessed to Peter Greste, I now get my news “sense” from news satire shows like The Bugle, Mad As Hell (when it was on, even though writer David M Green says they didn’t think they were fulfilling such an important role), and comedic articles by The Chaser. By being prepared to describe the context of a story and then shout convincingly that the emperor has no clothes, they keep tabs on those in power. How would you define me on the news consumer to news avoider continuum? And where do you sit? The fourth estate has abdicated its responsibility. Peter Greste shared first hand how newsroom editors measure “success” by likes, instead of the important measure of editorial value. Your thoughts? The fourth theme is cocooning and I confess, I might be in that category. I quote: “Cocooning” is a middle-class phenomenon coined by US futurist Faith Popcorn, who predicted large swathes of the community would, in fear of an ever-changing outside world, equip their residences with entertainment rooms, streaming services, security systems and perimeter walls, and utilise ever more home delivery services. And now we want to work from home! What’s wrong with this picture? I have worked from home for almost 20 years and I do everything I can to avoid driving in peak hour, if at all. I was in LA a week or two before Covid and the multi-lane highways were a non-stop channel of filth and waste and exhaust. Come Covid, they became almost deserted and peaceful, and air quality improved. Are there not good things about working from home? Going out necessitates a place to congregate with others and bars, cafes, and restaurants typically fill that need. But in an article in 2020, you lamented the noisy architecture of our eateries, where you have to shout to be heard. A client and friend of mine, Laura Drexler, has started a site called, Ambient Menu, where people can review eateries on their level of noise. Is this the other half of the deadly duo strangling social cohesion; crappy, selfish, dumbed down media and news, coupled with venues that encourage consumption and monosylabic conversations? The final theme in your article is art making. You lament our State’s reduction in art funding, especially compared to its increased funding of sporting events. I quote: “The arts in South Australia are woefully underfunded relative to other states. From 2017-2022, states and territories cumulatively increased arts funding by 22 per cent, while SA was the only state to head in the opposite direction, reducing funding by 9 per cent over the same period.” I think we can accept the funding figures as fact, so let’s look at your underlying reason for frustration here, you state: Our civic life needs thriving cultural institutions to counter ignorance and intolerance. How is that so? I have seen some wonderful, thought-provoking theatre that had potential to counter ignorance and intolerance, but it it seen by a select few who can afford $50+ a ticket and who are primarily people from the chattering, enlightened classes who are already doing their best to stay informed and engaged. What is the value of our State Theatre putting on worthy pieces, society-improving pieces, if only the tiniest morsel of the community can see them? At the end of every episode since 2013, we have said goodnight to Don Dunstan, to honour his legacy as a Premier who stirred things up and got our kitchen cooking (literally). In a stirring piece you wrote in 2o16, Inauthentic “vibrancy” is damaging SA’s shrinking arts sector, you lamented then Premier Jay Weatherill’s dropping of the ball (so to speak) in reducing arts funding. There are many buzzwords in art but especially in politics and “vibrancy” is one, along with “activation”. What have you noticed about governnment support for the arts from Weatherill to Marshall to Malinauskas? Some of the events receiving money at the moment, most likely at the expense of arts, include Liv Golf, the AFL’s Gather Round, and bidding for next year’s Netball grand final. Do you think these events are intrinsically unworthy of funding? Our guest, next week, for our 10th birthday episode is New Zealander, Owen Eastwood, who has written a beautiful book about Belonging, drawing on many principles and insights of his Maori culture. He has noted that the communal act of following a team and “being there” every week is actually good for the spirit and the soul. Have you ever partaken in such a thing as “following a team”? And is there something from this dynamic that we can learn from in The Arts? I am part of a netball family. My wife coaches three teams and both my daughters play in two teams apiece. It has a strong web of grassroots involvement and is a crucial part of holding many regional communities together. Could there ever be an Arts alternative? Your words to our government and us? 00:53:22 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Intuition by Lucas Day.

377 - Unearthing Opal Live From Coober Pedy

Unearthed Australian Opal is set to make opal industry history with an unprecedented event, Unearthing Opal Live. This groundbreaking occasion brings together live opal mining and a simultaneous auction of any rough opal discovered during the event. Taking place on August 2, Unearthing Opal Live will be a thrilling 3.5-hour live stream from an opal mine in Coober Pedy, the renowned Opal Capital Of The World. And the Adelaide Show has the inside scoop with tonight's guests. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan.

This unique event allows viewers to watch the mining process unfold before their eyes, ask questions about the process, and bid on the gems as they are unearthed, creating an unparalleled opportunity to acquire opals with genuine provenance. However, Unearthing Opal Live is not just an event. It is a personal journey driven by the passion and expertise of its owner and founder, Dan Measey, who started prospecting in Coober Pedy when he was one year old. Dan’s fate as an opal prospector was sealed when his opal-mining father dug him a new bedroom in the family’s underground dugout home in the late 70s. The home extension yielded a blue, green, crystal opal the size of a cigarette packet worth $1500! While online auctions for opals are not uncommon, Unearthing Opal Live will take this experience to an entirely new level because the telecast will show opal mining in real time and enable viewers to immediately participate in a live auction to bid on the gems freshly discovered from the mine. This unique combination of mining and auction provides an exclusive opportunity to own opals with a direct connection to the source. As Dan says, "this will be the closest thing to experiencing real mining because viewers will share the anticipation that accompanies prospecting. They’ll share in the thrill of not knowing whether any opal will be found, mirroring the experience we have every day as we explore our claim." You can read more on the Unearthed Australian Opal website: Unearthing Opal Live. To take part in the auction, visit the Facebook Live Event. 00:47:25 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is actually an instrumental composition by Slava and Leonard Grigoryan entitled, Fred's Vision. Given our presence in the outback for this episode, it's a perfect opportunity to play a track inspired by Fred Hollows. Fred was an opthamologist who was inspired to restore eyesight to thousands of people in Australia and overseas. He always pushed for change and spent much of his career fighting for better access to eye health and better living conditions for Indigenous Australians. He was known for carrying a little wooden box full of lenses and frames and when the Grigoryan brothers saw that box, they were inspired to compose this track; Fred's Vision. Fred's Vision is from the Grigoryan Brother's album, This Is Us.

376 - From Adelaide To The USA With Love And America Josh

America celebrated Independence Day earlier this week, on the Fourth of July, so while the spotlight was on the US we thought it would be the perfect time to catch up with New York-based Adelaidean, Josh Pugh aka America Josh, to get a sense of the South Australian expat community in the Big Apple as well as reflect on some comparisons between life there and here. The SA Drink Of The Week is a gold medal wine, the Baroota Creek 2020 Cabernet Shiraz from Flinders Run. Watch this winery. I hear stories of people buying Penfolds Grange for quite low prices before it was famous, this has the potential to be one of those wines. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Gerry Masi is back as part of Distractor Code. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of one segment?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: From Adelaide To The USA With Love And America Josh 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:03:53 SA Drink Of The Week We have two special wines this episode, the Flinders Run Baroota Creek 2020 Cabernet Shiraz and the 2021 Baroota Creek 2021. Flinders Run is a winery in the Southern Flinders area, run by Emanuel and Laura Skorpos. This wine has just been awarded a gold medal score of 95 by Wine Showcase Magazine. This special tasting was held at Enzos's Ristorante, with Emanuel and Laura (although Laura preferred to take photos and videos rather than be on microphone) and Damon Musha from Wine Australia USA. 00:17:01 Josh Pugh, America Josh In 2017, Josh Pugh left what he described as a "fantastic life" in Adelaide and headed to New York to start a new life there. He handed over control of his company, sold his house, sold his car, and even gave away his cat so his odyssey could begin. Luckily for him, things have fallen into place: He found a home, a wife, and a dog, all in a matter of a few short years. However, last month, another South Australian, Fairlie Delbridge, connected with Josh at the launch of the South Australia Club in NYC, and then connected Josh with The Adelaide Show. And, as fate would have it, we're having this chat with Josh while he still has South Australia's famous Mitani chicken salt in his system. America Josh How did you get Mitani chicken salt? Is there a list of items or places you miss? Food items, events like Fringe? Are there some things you are glad to have left behind? Tell us about the South Australia Club in NYC. The opening was attended by Stuart Nutting, who is Austrade's Regional Director South Australia Trade and Investment, along with Trade and Investment Minister, Nick Champion. If it is anything like the Adelaide Club, the only way you get in is if you're a pastoralist, an Anglican, or you share DNA with Alexander Downer? We have much to unpack but we need to start with your decision to leave Adelaide. If your life was truly "fantastic", why did you leave? You currently run open gatherings in Central Park. Why do you do that? Your website says you created America Josh to help people plan to move to or settle into New York. What is involved in getting a Green Card or residency? You mention you were attracted by the "buzz" of New York. Something we've long argued at The Adelaide Show is that you can have a miserable boring life here or in New York; most of it depends on how proactively you are engaging with life. Firstly, has the buzz faded like the initial burst of romance in a relationship? And, secondly, can you reflect on the extrinsic and intrinsic factors that have helped you feel settled? What was Fourth of July like? Fairlie Delbridge is a mover and shaker in SA but is spending a year studing at Harvard. How have your paths crossed? Cricket. Was watching the other day and remember you talking fondly of cricket. Commentators were talking about timers to keep games moving at pace and how baseball now has countdown times for pitchers. I must say, I watched some baseball. It is soooooo boring. Being there is okay but, just like golf, it's not made for tv. Your thoughts? Also, what do you think of the stumping in the Ashes? I get confused with cricket umpire Steve Davis and I notice there is an English comedian, Josh Pugh. Do you ever get mis-identified? Who will you vote for in the elections? The dangers of stalking guests is that I saw a picture of you as Mrs Doubtfire. Is that a regular habit? Final thoughts for people thinking of moving? And are you encouraging Americans to move here? 01:24:15 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is This Town by Gerry Masi under the banner of Distractor Code; his collaboration with Paul White. It’s all played on 80s synths with Gerry singing and, unlike the songs under his non de plume, Mad Dog Malcolm, there are no inappropriate lyrics!!! Given the US flavour if this episode, I should point out that This Town is not the classic Frank Sinatra song, nor is it Adelaide's version of New York New York, however, it puts Gerry's operatic power to good use and it broods with darkness and passion. For Josh, he'll note The Arts Theatre in the video cover image, below.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

375 - Loss, Grief, And Forgiveness: Rosemary Wanganeen On How Indigenous And Non-Indigenous Australians Can Thrive

How has your understanding of and relationship with Australia Day changed over time? What goes through your mind when you hear a Welcome to Country or Acknowledgment of Country? And what do you think of when you hear the term Aboriginal prosperity? These are just some of the questions touched on in this extended interview with Griefologist, Rosemary Wanganeen, who takes us on a journey towards healing by embracing grief. As you'll hear, there is important work to be done by Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Australians, and it starts with finding ways to forgive our 1788 ancestors. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Nataleigh shares a song produced as part of her 13-year-old songwriting competition, eMusic.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Loss, Grief, And Forgiveness: Rosemary Wanganeen On How Indigenous And Non-Indigenous Australians Can Thrive 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week There is no featured drink this week. 00:03:04 Rosemary Wanganeen, The Healing Centre for Griefology Three weeks ago, at the end of May 2023, The Healing Centre for Griefology, shared a post that read: Did you know that 25% of Aboriginal people living in the inner city have mental health problems? We can change this - we can educate institutions and organisations about Griefology as a proven method to enact Aboriginal prosperity. It triggered an avalanche of comments like "looking for more handouts", "the solution to Aboriginal prosperity is not different to Whites - get off the grog", "easy fix, pack up the 'dilly bag' and go 'walkabout' and get out of the city, you all get paid by the government no matter where you go, and you will still get everything for nothing no matter where you go, so GET OUT OF THE CITY IF ITS MAKING YOU CRAZY". When the founder and director of the Healing Centre for Griefology, Rosemary Wanganeen, shared how much hurt this caused her team, a flood of compassion arose from many people, including me, who just couldn't process the vitriol the Centre had received. Rosemary Wanganeen Niina Marni (how are you)? Rosemary, you are a Griefologist, a Clinical Loss & Grief Counsellor, today I want to delve into what griefology actually is, what The Seven Phases to Integrating Loss and Grief are, and your upcoming symposium on July 7, along with some discussion of the polarising views about Australia Day, my mixed feelings about Acknowledgement Of Country rituals in some circumstances, some insights about how to approach The Voice, and the buried art of intuition. But first I want to return to those spiteful, racist messages you and your team received. My reaction was almost a carbon copy of everybody else's. We were staggered by the unveiled hatred. One comment from anthropologist, Sue Fraser, summed it up by saying: I am so sorry that you and your team have to deal with these comments. It is sickening and sad that people believe these things, and that they think it's okay to dump these comments on to someone like yourself who is doing such great work for Aboriginal Peoples and for the rest of us as well. Sending love and hugs Sue. However, I think I have a deeper understanding of what was behind those comments, now that I have spent a few weeks listening to you talk. In particular, you shine a light on the psychotic state of the 1788 arrivals, explaining that they became perpetrators of violence having been victims of a broken approach to life that disconnected them from their humanity, in a process that stretches back to Plato and even beyond. Can we please start here because I think your framing of this evolution might help us make sense of the macabre way Romans crucified people, the hideous human waste of The Great War, and even what’s happening today in Ukraine. I'd like to dwell a little longer on Australia Day. My own journey over 50 years has been one of a little bit of "rah rah", then many years of indifference (although the public holiday was gratefully received), to a stirred reflection on the "experiment" of South Australia, to growing conflict about how to process my growing understanding of some of the dark, dark stuff my ancestors did, to a point of being rather frozen now. That's why my ears priced up when you mentioned, in a recent interview, the importance of you finding a way to forgive the 1788 arrivals, and the importance of us Anglo people finding a way to forgive them, too. Can you please expand on this? The theme of forgiveness is key, here, but you do differentiate between grief forgiveness vs religious forgiveness. Can you explain this to me? This reflection on words does raise the importance of both language and the process of passing on knowledge. In Sand Talk, Tyson Yunkaporta talks about Europeans named the mountains in the east as The Great Dividing Range, even though it doesn't diving anything (it is, in fact, an song line that connects), and the coral off the east coast as the Great Barrier Reef even though it is not a barrier but in fact another song line that connects. Does this explain why there seems to be such a large gap between indigenous and non-indigenous cultures? Something else Tyson shares in his book is the role of passing on knowledge through stories or yarns and how written words tend to be processed in short term memory but oral stories tend to get stuck into long term memory. As part of discussing this, it also brings up themes of the characters in Aboriginal stories - people, animals, plants, and even rocks and stars. He shared a story about a magpie and a crow that is still triggered every time I see one of those birds (it was part of a story about the importance of taking the learning of knowledge seriously) but I've also heard you tell a story about a meeting with Grandfather Crow. I'd love to understand this dynamic more. We start our episodes with a simple acknowledgement of country and at the netball recently, there was a truly earnest and profound Welcome To Country that had gravitas and meaning. However, I see so many acknowledgement of country rituals that are either blurted out quickly as an inconvenience, or are made overly elaborate and hand-wringing in some theatre settings, that they come across as either hypocritical at one end or virtue signalling on steroids at the other end. What is your thinking about these rituals? One of my clients was warned not to do an acknowledgement of country at an event for fear of offending people but as I learn more about griefology and the seven phases to integrating loss and grief, it seems that fear is because there is stuff bottled up inside many of us and it threatens to blow in harmful ways, or even just uncomfortable ways. Could we walk through these phases? Phase 1 Contemporary Aboriginal DisadvantagePhase 2 Childhood Violations / Losses & Unresolved GriefPhase 3 Australian History; English History; Ancient History; Plato 388 BC.Phase 4& 5 Ancient Traditional CulturePhase 6 Reclamation of Contemporary Loss & Grief ProgramsPhase 7 Develop Training Programs for every sector across society I'm fascinated by your methodology for developing griefology. You talk about intuitive research. What does that mean and how can we be sure the voices we hear inside are not delusions? Can you tell us about the National Symposium on Griefolology at the Adelaide Convention Centre. What it is, who should go, and what you hope it will achieve? Steve references his documentary, Sorry Proof Country, during the interview. It was uploaded to YouTube many years ago when there was a 10-minute limit. So here is part one of the 30-minute film YouTube will guide you to parts two and three as you watch. 01:36:54 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Here in the Woods, by Nataleigh. Nataleigh is a dynamo on the local music scene. She performs all over place but also makes musical magic with her twin sister, Amanda, by hosting an annual music competition called eMusic. The twins invite friends to submit a song that follows three rules; each song has to be original, recorded at home, and meet the 'general' characteristics of the chosen genre. This year the genre is acoustic, but previous years it has been everything from power balads to children's songs. There tend to be about six entries each year and then the 50 or so people who turn up vote on the songs so that a winner can be chosen. The song we're going to listen to is a good accompaniment to this episode. It's called Here in the Woods. It was written by Amanda but both sisters sing it. It's a good choice for this episode because part of what Rosemary Wanganeen was encouraging us to do was to get "into the woods" to reconnect to the stories from the land around us. And this song makes many references to immersing in and observing the woods, the forest, the moon, etc. We wish them all the best for this year's 13th eMusic competition - and thank you to Carol Neller for putting us in touch.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

374 - This Medical Life And The Andrew Wakefield Fraud

When Steve Davis is not recording The Adelaide Show Podcast, he's sitting in the co-pilot's chair with Dr Travis Brown as they create This Medical Life, a podcast that explores the history of different diseases and medical conditions, along with the latest insights in understanding and treatment. And what better way to give you a taste that wrapping a podcast within a podcast! And in the Musical Pilgrimage, The Public Servants will sing Four O'Clock Friday (make sure you stay for the end to hear it, and don't clock off early). You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of one segment? You can click next to jump to the next chapter in the show. We're here to serve!

We'd greatly appreciate it. And please talk about us and share our episodes on social media, it really helps build our community. Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: This Medical Life And The Andrew Wakefield Fraud 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week There is no featured drink this week. 00:08:10 Dr Travis Brown and This Medical Life Dr Travis Brown is a pathologist who has a passion for the stories of medicine. He's also Resident General Pathologist at Clinpath Pathology. His obsession for storytelling led him to create a podcast in 2020, called This Pathological Life. In late 2021, the podcast broadened its focus and became This Medical Life. Travis is 83 episodes into this journey and in every one of them he takes a particular disease or medical condition, explores the history behind it, and then covers our understanding and treatment of it today. Typically, he has an expert from the field handle the last part of each podcast. The enterprise is an open gift to the medical world. It is pitched at GPs and specialists and medical students, but he's also attracting a general interest audience of humans who are curious to learn as well as patients who want to know more about their particular illness. Our very own Steve Davis is the co-host of this podcast and because he is having his Covid booster and flu shot today, coinciding with an episode about vaccines and one about influenze just about to be released, it seemed the perfect time to throw the spotlight on this fellow Adelaidean podcast. We will hear the complete episode (Season 4, Episode 38), in which the special guest is Brian Deer, the award winning investigative journalist and bestselling author of The Doctor that Fooled the World, which blew the whistle on the great fraud carried out by disgraced former doctor, Andrew Wakefield, who wrongly linked the MMR vaccine to autism and fuelled parts of the ant-vax movement. As you will hear, this is not based on semantics, this truly was a fraud at many levels. It's a horrifying insight into how such evil can then lure well-meaning people not only off the safe path but into the thickets and weeds of conspiracy and pseudo science. 01:01:54 Musical Pilgrimage Our featured song this episode is Four O'Clock Friday by The Public Servants. This Adelaide band claims to be the world’s premier public servant-themed novelty punk rock band. And I think they're on the money. On Friday, June 16, 2023, The Public Servants will officially launch their debut full-length album ‘Code of Misconduct’ at the Hotel Metropolitan, with support from Adelaide’s Celtic folk rockers The Backyarders. You would expect public servants to have obsessive personalities and the band members do not disappoint. They are all vinyl buffs so their debut album has been pressed into luxury 180 gram brown vinyl. And it will be a limited edition, too, with only 100 copies made. Code of Misconduct on vinyl is available at The Public Servants’ shows and online at Bandcamp, with the music available through all the digital platforms. A final thought. Public servants also like statistics so it is no surprise that their media release contained this gem: 100,000 songs are released each day. They posit that as the reason they're striving a bit weird, because there's a lot of "noise" to cut through. To give you a taste of the content, ,the album opens with Blend 43 – a coffee staple in many a workplace. It's followed by Papercut, Stress Leave, and Bored. The song we're playing, to keep the episode family friendly is not, Flexitime Sexytime, but rather, Four O'Clock Friday. It's got to be four o'clock Friday somewhere, right?

373 - Cunnos, Comedy, and Micallef with David M Green

When Shaun Micallef pulled up stumps after 10 years of Mad As Hell last year, the writers in the team had to start looking for work. One of those writers, who was part of 13 of the 15 seasons, David M Green, is an Adelaidean whose life has been dedicated to pursuing the craft of comedy. He joins us to share some great insights into writing, the nature of comedy, and the workings of a weekly comedy show. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Matt Cahill returns with a new Evoletah song.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Cunnos, Comedy, And Micallef With David M Green 00:00:00 Intro One of our former guests, Caroline Rowe, whose episode was, I Wouldn't Be A Baker If I Couldn't Eat The Cakes, has just launched in interesting quiz on her website that helps you identify your inner cook, so you can start the process of getting more confidence in the kitchen. During this week, while she's testing it, you'll find it on her homepage at carolinerowe.com. She'd love you to make use of it and the resources it points you too. Also, Steve is working with some university students on a project focussing on the City of Adelaide and would dearly love you to fill in one or both of their surveys today or within the next few days. As a thank you, when you complete the surveys you can opt to go into the draw for a $50 ByAdl voucher and a $30 Rundle Mall voucher! The first one reflects on living in, working in, or visiting the city: Resident/Visitor survey The second one is perfect if you work in the city but have had changes in where you work brought about by Covid: Working from home survey Ideally, they need you input by Saturday, May 27, 2023. 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week There is no featured drink this week. 00:05:31 David M Green In recent years, there have been only two shows that have given me my money's worth in paying for the ABC. The first is Mediawatch. The second was Mad As Hell. So when Shaun Micallef pulled the plug late in 2022 after 10 years and 15 seasons, I was left, well, Mad As Hell. One of the people who created the magic  behind the scenes was a comedian and comedy writer from Adelaide, David M Green. He was invited onto the show by Shaun for season 3 and he stayed there until season 15 in 2022. Some might say that gig was a long way from his humble beginnings of producing the Channel 31 show, Good Afternoon Adelaide, in between popping down grab some bargains at Cunnos. David, welcome. Link to David's website: David M Green Link to David's youtube channel: David M Green on YouTube The movie referred to is not Mad Men or similar with Dustin Hoffman but rather Crazy People with Dudley Moore. Crazy People David, you might be pleased to know that even though I don't have a team of writers, I did revise my intro a few times. I'd like your opinion on one of the early drafts: After mentioning Micallef's decision to end the show I had this sentence: For Mad As Hell comedian and writer, David M Green, the end of the show meant he had to find a new gig so that he could continue being paid to release his Kraken (and by that, I mean, joke crackin'). Yes, I've opened this interview with a Bill Shorten-style zinger. Talk to me about revisions. I imagine gags and jokes follow some sort of arc. Can you tell me what the life cycle of a joke was like at Mad As Hell? Something I find intriguing and disturbing is that News Corp and many other outlets have twisted and ransacked journalism so much, that I find I get most of my news sense from comedy and satire programs like The Bugle, The BBC News Quiz, and Mad As Hell. Did you have any sense that you were helping us distill the silliness and the context of news in your comedy? Use by dates are severe in political writing. When I was a journo, I lived and breathed in the news cycle to the extent that it overtook my life. Did you need to be a news junkie to write for Mad As Hell? We'll be back in a moment, to talk about comedy through Covid, the limits of comedy, and Cunningham Warehouse Sales That is a classic ad that you wrote for Mad As Hell. There were many nutjobs and deluded people swanning around with various conspiracy theories during Covid. In fact, it was like covid became an incubator for lunacy. Were they easy gags or did you get some pushback? This brings me to the question of "the line". You reference online that you are quite the nerd, so I want to nerd it up for a moment and create a quadrant. From dry to the opposite, and safe to daring, where do you sit now, and where have you sat? This might be a good time to talk TJs three jokes because we've been talking about crafting some Division 12 footy players Woman wiht axe in car Armed robbery at supoermarket Protester dangling A truck driver safely swerving all over the road The Crows doing pies in faces One of the main triggers for doing the quadrant was this Good Afternoon Adelaide visit by Santa (cancer and dead dad). What's your reaction to hearing that again. Let's turn to the VHS Revue. Some points for discussion include: Cunninghams Warehouse Sales SA Great Commercial Lots of sung jingles including Southern Music Centre about Organs - we can make them big or make them small Force Electronics with paper money Monday Morning Movie Why do VHS Revue nostalgia? Just fun, or important? What is next for a career in the arts? I want to finish with some Mad As Hell highlights: The 2019 wrong episode Your favourite character Favourite moment with shaun Most memorable moment Would you have done anything different 01:16:27 Musical Pilgrimage You might recall our special episode with Matt Cahill, reliving the history of the band, The Violets. One of his other projects, which had been brought to our attention by radionotes with John Murch, is Evoletah. They've just released a new son, Calliope Dream, and Matt tells me there's a new album on the way, too. This is a nice mellow end to the show which should transform us from mad as hell to mellow as the Ancient Greek heavans where Calliope was a muse to the Greek poets.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

372 - How A Green South Australia Can Thrive

Imagine if we had enough housing in South Australia. It is possible, according to entrepreneur and developer, Barrie Harrop, our special guest this week. Barrie has plans afoot for building a tall hotel in Victoria Square out of timber, a quality resort in Whyalla, and housing developments that offer free electricity to occupiers while making best use of existing road and rail infrastructure and accommodates people who need affordable accommodation. John Gledhill returns to walk us through some new wines; this time they are fortifieds. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we hear a small snippet from South Australia's Kaurna Cronin, who is about to take his local music to Europe.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: How A Green South Australia Can Thrive 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:02:46 SA Drink Of The Week This week we are joined by local winemaker, John Gledhill from Gledhill Vignerons, who gives us a sneak peek at his two new fortified wines; a Fortified Durif and a Fortified Touriga. John also gives us a glimpse at the complexity of fortified winemaking. The wines will be available soon on his website: Gledhill Wines. 00:13:16 Barrie Harrop and a green South Australia Someone I've been watching in my LinkedIn feed for some time is Barrie Harrop. Barrie is there, every day, championing anything related to Green Hydrogen, Whyalla, and Sustainable Construction of buildings and houses using Cross Laminated Timber. Among many other things, Barrie is the chair of Thrive Construct, a building and development company that is committed to quality design, life time construction, carbon neutral living, free energy (subject to fair usage) and fast construction. Barrie, although much of your career has focussed on significant scale property development, the one term that seems to tie everything together is entrepreneur. My social media feed would have me believe that South Australia has 17 entrepreneurs for every square metre of the state - every week has some sort of powerful gathering of entrepreneurs, or some sort of award like Best Left Handed Entrepreneur Aged 35 - 30, but in your career, you actually get things done. Could we start by defining what you think makes an entrepreneur a true entrepreneur, and perhaps share a couple of your proudest entrepreneurial successes? Another theme I see running through various "self made" people in my feeds, is how everybody around them is small minded and negative. And I think there's some nuance here. Just because an idea is big or grand or new, does NOT mean it is worthwhile or good. You have had your share of dealing with naysayers, and, one of them that brings this issue to the surface is the Southgate building at the bottom end of King William Street.Back in the 90s, the atypical design for the Adelaide cityscape drew many critics.What was it like, being at the centre of that project, including being the subject of that persistant Financial Review story, entitled, "Developer Adelaide Loves To Hate"? So, Southgate was all about steel but a major theme in your posts over the past year or two has been CLT or Cross Laminated Timber. This material is the centrepiece of your proposed hotel tower for Victoria Square but before we get there, I want to share the story about CLT and also how it's related to building and construction practices in Australia, which I've seen you claim as some of the most wasteful in the world. Turning to Victoria Square, I'm surprised we need a new hotel because everything I have been seeing is talking about scarcity of residential properties in the Adelaide CBD. Can you talk us through why hotel accommodation is the approach you've taken? I'm working with some Flinders University students at the moment and they're grappling with scenarios where a city has a lot of vacant office space and crushing scarcity of residential accommodation. As an entrepreneur and developer, what do you think of the concept of refitting vacant office buildings as residential, or adopting a hybrid approach? Does that have legs, given that landlords traditionally make more money from commercial clients, don't they? Something intriguing about your approach to development is captured in this line on your website: "We're planning the world's largest sustainable and affordable housing projects and as part of the planning we will introduce micro grids (wired and integrated with solar and battery technologies) subject to fair usage clause our model is free energy for our occupients". And you took a shot at the Adelaide City Council's Bus Station redevelopment for its small percentage of affordable accommodation in the mix. How does the affordable accommodation aspect work; what stops investors using tricky methods to steal the affordable allocations away from those in need? Do you have any thoughts on our shrinking Housing Trust stock? Morphettville is being plundered and redeveloped at the moment and a part of me is sad that housing that once helped the less well off is now being converted into little McMansions. You wrote to the Department of Infrastructure a few years ago and you floated one idea to alleviate our lack of affordable housing options. You said 400sqm areas around train stations and tram stops in the suburbs should be rezoned to allow 8-storey developments because it puts people right where transport is and gets the balance right. Do you still hold this view? Have you seen the growth in Mount Barker? Large parts of me die when I see farming land turned over to low densite housing. We can't eat concrete. Where's our food going to come from? Back on the hotel front, you've been writing for some time now that Whyalla is the perfect place for accommodation investment because even broom closets can fetch $200 a night. What is the dynamic at work there and what has you so involved in the town? What makes Whyalla the perfect location for Green Hydrogen production to help us become a green South Australia? I am hearing a lot of criticism about the so-called "dumb" choice of governments backing electric vehicles as the shorthand answer for decarbonising transport, on the basis that our electricity grid, especially in apartment buildings, just can't cope with battery charging. Would hydrogen-fuelled vehicles be an answer or the answer? Finally, I just heard some research being discussed over the weekend about how our ideas get more extreme when we only mix with people who agree with us. How do you keep your ideas sharp and balanced and not given to simple idealism and wishful thinking? Do you have a Devil's Advocate in your circle? 01:07:14 Musical Pilgrimage Given that during the weekend of recording, England reminded us, through the crowning of their/our new king, that they sent people to Australia in the 1800s, it makes sense that we blow a few horns for local singer/songwriter, Kaurna Cronin who will soon be our export back to Europe. He has a number of dates planned - get details and music from the Kaurna Cronin website - but to finish this episode we're going to hear one of his latest songs, Our Way, from his recent album, Harsh Reality.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

371 - Not For Glory - Australian Women At War With Susan Neuhaus

From the trenches of the Western Front to the ricefields and jungles of South-east Asia, Australian women have served and doctors and medical specialists from World War I until the present day. Not For Glory is a book that tells their stories of adventure, courage, sacrifice and determination as they fought to serve their country… and won. Co-author, Susan Neuhaus joins us to share some of those stories ahead of Anzac Day. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we hear a small snippet from South Australia's 2022 Dawn Service, lest we forget.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Not For Glory - Australian Women At War With Susan Neuhaus 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week No SA drink segment this week. 00:03:22 Susan Neuhaus As we approach Anzac Day 2023, I'm reminded of a review I wrote about the play, Hallowed Ground in 2019. In the play we get to meet a number of women who have served Australia, our allies, and humanity in various locations and situations in response to a deep calling to "do their part", do their service. The production by The Shift Theatre, was adapted from the book, Not For Glory, by South Australian army veteran and surgeon, Colonel Susan Neuhaus CSC (Retd) and Dr Sharon Mascall-Dare. I wrote back then that in light of this production and this book, I will certainly be recalling these women’s stories as part of my emotional and historical journey every Anzac Day. And to prepare myself for this Anzac Day, and to share some extra insights with you, I have Susan Neuhaus with me now. This simplest link for finding Not For Glory is here: Australian Women At War bookshelf page. Susan, you spent 20 year5s in the military in both the Australian Regular Army and the Army Reserve as a clinician and a commander. You served in Cambodia, Bougainville and Afghanistan, and in 2009, you were awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross, followed in 2020 by being admitted as a Member of the Order of Australia for services to medicine. What compelled you to serve Australia in what is referred to as conflict medicine? How does medical work in the field differ from back in normal practice? In small business mentoring, I have found that often I end up playing the role of confidant and counsellor. Surely that must happen in the field to a much greater degree. Can you share an example? Are there any disciplines or procedures you learn in the military that make civilian life better (or worse)? I want to reflect on your awards because it connects directly to the title of your book, Not For Glory. When you and so many other service people join the military to "answer a call", how does one hold the notion of medals and awards, when that was not a part of one's motivation? What is so important about these women's stories, that has propelled you to go on the gruelling pathway of crafting a book? What impact would you like this book to have on readers and on the military itself? Can we look at some stories? Through what lens do you reflect on the current situation in Ukraine? 00:48:27 Musical Pilgrimage The most fitting music for this episode has been drawn from the 2022 Dawn Service at the South Australian War Memorial.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

370 - Can Wellness Tourism Heal The World?

More than 60 bespoke wellness experiences and events are headlining the 2023 Wellness wander three-day weekend in the Adelaide Hills this coming weekend, March 31-April 2, 2023, so Steve arranged an interview with the event founder, Katherine Droga to not only discuss the event but also the whole topic of wellness tourism. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we hear an unplugged song by long time favourite of the podcast, Kelly Brouhaha.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Can Wellness Tourism Heal The World? 00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week No SA drink segment this week. 00:03:42 Katherine Droga This coming weekend, March 31 to April 2, 2023, the Wellness Wander Weekend returns to the Adelaide Hills. More than 60 bespoke wellness experiences will be staged from Stirling, to Hahndorf, Mount Barker to Lobethal, Crafers to Paracombe and the greater surrounds. At the heart of this event is Katherine Droga, Founder of Wellness Wander, Executive Producer of Well Traveller TV, and Chair of the GWI Wellness Tourism Initiative. Katherine, I have found that as I planned some questions for our chat, there are some challenging ones in the list because I do have this social justice bent in me in which I hate seeing vulnerable people exploited and the area of health is one of the danger zones. But I know you're up for it and I appreciate that. But first, Katherine, how do you define wellness? The wellness idustry attracts many types of people, from those who are unwell to those who feel called to help others. And the first thoughts that arose for me when hearing about the Wellness wander, were coloured by concern about potential opportunism. My initial analogy was that the wellness tourism operators were setting up stands around the edge of a broken and dangerous playground to make money from selling bandaids to injured people. But then I realised that even bandaids have a role to play in healing and maybe an event like Wellness wander might give people the breathing space they need to take stock. What are your thoughts? There is gold in the wellness hills. The Global Wellness Institute says wellness travellers spend 53% more than typical international travellers and 178% more than typical domestic travellers. How do we ethically balance the care factor  of wellness with the brute force of economic drivers? What role has Covid played in spurring interest in wellness travel? One major lens of an event like Wellness wander is at the personal level but no matter how much healing you might undergo, it doesn't change the fact that playground of the world is still a broken place. To fix the causes of suffering in the world is a much deeper task. In fact, I would love your reflection on this insight from Owen Eastwood's book, Belonging. He seems to suggest that our disconnectedness from ourselves and our society (which causes unwellness) actually relates to our lack of understanding of Whakapapa. This is a maori concept of noting that we are here as part of a long line of those who came before us and that the sun will shine on each of us brightly and our job is to try to leave a better legacy. Does that resonate with you? What has occurred on your journey that propelled you into this world of wellness? I was heartened to see The GWI has a strong focus on evidence, which is great because our podcast has a long history of supporting evidence-based enterprises and products. For example, we have long been appalled by the water that is sold as expensive homeopathic medicine. I can state right now that we stand against that sort of skullduggery. However, we're also aware that there are some alternative practices where although they claim a certain type of action is happening, what is really going on is a placebo effect based on the biopsychosocial factors arising from just having attention from a therapist (the patient– practitioner interaction). How do you apply safeguards in an event like Wellness wander to save people from themselves? We will put a link to the full program in the show notes, but I'd love to look into a few things that caught my eye from the program: Sensory Journey at the Ukaria Cultural Centre Family digital detox Yoga The Wellness wander is an overarching event for the weekend with individual events 100% run by providers including setting their own price points for the event. However, there are plenty of cheaper options for those who are on a budget such as: Guided Meditation and Labyrinth Walk - $35 https://wellnesswander.com.au/activities/guided-meditation-and-labyrinth-walk-2/ Introduction to Breathwork and Wander -$25 https://wellnesswander.com.au/activities/introduction-to-breathwork-wander/ Candlelight Yin with Live Music - $40 https://wellnesswander.com.au/activities/candlelight-yin-with-live-music/ Wellness wander through Hahndorf history - $10 https://wellnesswander.com.au/activities/wellness-wander-through-hahndorf-history/ What can other tourism operators learn from the Wellness wander and from this thing called wellness tourism? 00:39:01 Musical Pilgrimage The most fitting song in the Musical Pilgrimage this episode. It is Campfires by Kelly Brouhaha. There are three reasons this is the perfect song ahead of the Wellness wander. The Wellness wander is about reconnecting with your self and your place and that should also include connecting or reconnecting with our magnificent, homegrown talent. Kelly is an Adelaide-based singer songwriter and following her and supporting her is a great way to ground yourself in life-enriching local art. This song is about the goodness of gathering around campfires to tell stories and to just be (among other things). As referenced in the interview with Katherine Droga, Owen Eastwood argues for the importance of campfire storytelling in his book, Belonging, which is all on theme for this episode. And, finally, this is Kelly off her recent Unplugged album. If anything says simplicity and honesty in harmony with the Wellness wander, it's an artist communicating with us intimately "unplugged".

369 - The World Of Adelaide Music From Atlas Genius To Hayli

Steven Jeffery from Atlas Genius asked us to listen to music from a new artist, Hayli, who he's convinced will take the world by storm, so Steve agreed. The result is this special episode diving deeply into the story behind the music industry, covering fame, fortune, and the preparation that goes into this career. Plus, we also taste Pirate Life's Strawberry & Watermelon Crush in the SA Drink Of The Week. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of one segment?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: The World Of Adelaide Music From Atlas Genius To Hayli00:00:00 Intro Introduction 00:02:18 SA Drink Of The Week We sip an SA Drink Of The Week at Pirate Life because next month, April 16, 2023, Hayli will be launching her debut EP at the brewery. We taste the Strawberry & Watermelon Crush. 00:05:48 Steven Jeffrey and Hayli In episode 358 in August last year, we featured a song by Atlas Genius because the band had just taken the USA by storm with appearances on just about every US prime time talk show you could imagine. The single, Trojans, was the tune that got into the heads of Americans, selling more than 1 million copies, achieving Gold status, and reaching number 3 on the US Alternative Music Chart. Just another little export from Victor Harbor!! One of the founding members is Steven Jeffery, and he joins us with a superstar-to-be, Hayli. There's much to discuss today, from behind-the-scenes insights into the music industry, the grind of rehearsals, the creative process of writing or choosing songs, the unrelenting need to promote yourself, and the challenge of maintaining the joy that music is all about. But I want to start by joining some dots in the Atlas Genius story because for a youngish band, it's amazing how many different versions there are online about your formation. Steven, can you start by sharing "that moment" when you and your two brothers, Keith and Michael, decided to form a band back in 2009? An American ABC article says you've left, and the Wikipedia article about your band has a list of almost a dozen people who are (or have been involved). Has it been a case of musical chairs, and if so, why? Many US fans first learned about you when your song, Trojans, was featured in Greys Anatomy. Let's have a listen to that song and then come back and discuss how it came to be featured on the TV show and what the aftermath was like? TROJANS Trojans is a reference from Greek Mythology and, of course, Keith told reporter Taylor Dunn that the band name was also "a certain play on the Greek mythology". Was philosophy an area of interest for you boys? Every family has its own mythology, to a degree, which is something I hope to focus on this year as we reach 10 years of The Adelaide Show podcast. Performance coach and author, Owen Eastwood, goes deep into this in his book, Belonging, as he talks about the Maori concept of Whakapapa; the notion that oour ancestors came before us and the sun shines on each of us in our turn. In your case, your father was in a band, I believe. Is there much music and performance heritage in the Jeffrey family? Hayli, we're about to turn our attention to you but first I want to play another Atlas Genius song that Steve says is his favourite and your favourite. Why do you like The City We Grow? TO THE CITY WE GROW Hayli, when I first listened to the three tracks you currently have on Spotify, I wrote this to Steven: If we were going to draw a Venn diagram with Hayli, Kate Bush and Melissa Etheridge, I think there’d be some sizeable areas of overlap surrounding Hayli’s own features. Hayli, here you are, at the beginning of your career. What goes through your mind when listeners try to peg you to other singers like I did? What was the moment when you decided to throw everything into a music career? I hear that you've written your songs based on your life and the people around you - which must make it a bit scary if someone's about to hear themselves or their actions described in a song. What's been the process for writing songs? The Triple J Unearthed feature on you, specifically notes that you keep your songs ambiguous enough so that people don't really know who they're about - which might be important when the topic's more about hate or impartial romances - but how does that sit next to Leonard Cohen's belief that it's in the particular where we find the universal? In other words, do you lose any power by making references to people more general? Set us up for Mustang Crescent because that's the favourite Hayli song with my daughters. MUSTANG CRESCENT I've noticed your songs, and most Atlas Genius songs, run between 3:30 and 4:00 but I've noticed that DJs these days are either cultivating or responding to a mass sense of Attention Deficit Disorder by only playing 30 seconds of a song, or maybe a minute, or having songs overlaid on each other (remixed). For me, I'd be deflated that all the thought and effort had gone into verses, choruses, instrumental breaks, and lyrics, just gets wasted. I'd probably start just producing 45-second songs, or just 45-second of novel stuff and the rest on "repeat". How does this impact your planning around a song? Hayli, your voice is so strong and raw and sensual, that I get a little impatient with the music on your tracks - I just want to hear your voice. How do you balance that? There is one exception to my "vocal forward" attitude, and that's on the track, Mistaken, because if features some excellent Hammond Organ. [If you want to hear a great discussion about the Hammond, catch my chat with Evan Whetter from Lazy Eye in episode 303.] What made you both opt for the Hammond - was this Steven's keys background? MISTAKEN I've just read an excellent book called Chokepoint Capitalism, in which the stranglehold that Spotify and record labels have on the music scene is described in great detail. What does Hayli need to do to earn a good living from being a singing superstar, and has having a record label deal brought riches to Atlas Genius? At the time of recording, you have a big rehearsal scheduled tomorrow, Hayli. Take us through the planning and discipline that goes into setting yourself up to launch your career properly. Cryptic is your latest release. Can you decipher it for us? CRYPTIC Steven, Hayli is a singer/songwriter and that comes through in her songs but for Atlas Genius, I sometimes get the sense that the lyrics in the songs are almost like other instruments; it's not so much what they are saying but how they are sounding? What's your take? We're going to finish with Molecules, a track that has that anthemic, dance floor sound, with keys at the fore. Tell us about being the keyboard player, even though Wikipedia has you listed as the bass guitarist. Do you get your share of the limelight? Can you introduce Molecules, which features my favourite lines: We steal the molecules from the deadWe liberate inanimate objects MOLECULES Atlas Genius website Hayli (Tripe J Unearthed) Hayli InstagramSupport the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

368 - Adelaide Fringe MBA VS Wankernomics: What's Plagiarism Between Professors?

In 2021, Professor Sebastian Longsword debuted with his Adelaide Fringe MBA in a show called, Lunchtime MBA, in which he promised attendees could come for lunch and leave with an MBA in 60 minutes. Fast forward to 2023, and the blurb for Wankernomics by Charles Firth and James Schloeffel has it described as a 60-minute MBA. Is this plagiarism, is this the inevitability of great ideas floating to the top and conjealing on the surface of life, or does it signal something else? In the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a classy piece of jazz by local outfit, Monsoon June, entitled Triangle.

It now an occasional segment when stellar beverages are discovered. 00:03:04 Professor Sebastian Longsword and Charles Firth [Interview by Professor Sebastian Longsword from The MBA School Of MBA Credentials] Hello. My name is Professor Sebastian Longsword from The MBA School Of MBA Credentials and I'd like to thank The Adelaide Show for making its studio available so that three grown humans can have a mature discussion about some prickly topics, as a model for the rest of society. By addressing each other with respect, I am certain we will finish debating as warm acquaintences, friends, or even lovers. But first, I have a formal introduction to read. Initially, I was going to ask Associate Professor Chat GPT to do this, but then decided to ask my assistant, Ms Paige Turner, instead, because I find nothing is quite as confident and reassuring as her hand. Let us begin. In 2021, I debuted my Adelaide Fringe MBA with a show called, A Lunchtime MBA, in which I promised attendees could come for lunch and leave with an MBA in 60 minutes. Fast forward to 2023, and the blurb for Wankernomics, Solutionising The Corporate World by Charles Firth (from The Chaser) and James Schloeffel (frome The Shovel) describes itself as, and I quote, a 60-minute MBA. Is this plagiarism, is this the inevitability of great ideas floating to the top and conjealing on the surface of life, or does it signal something else? I have summoned my Fringe colleagues to get to the bottom of it. Here are the link to the two 2023 Adelaide Fringe shows in contention: 100% MBA Success: Whisky And Trivia With Professor Longsword Wankernomics: Solutionising The Corporate World My approach to this "difficult" conversation will be following some guidelines from the NSW Education Department. Their three points are: Have the conversation sooner rather than later (which I why we're about to get stuck right in) Allow time and space (which is why I've made sure we are each in a different state of Australia) Reflect (which is why I have a mirror in front of me) Are you ready, Charles? Charles, if I may circle back to 2021, what puzzles me the most about your decision to mimic my previous work, is that I distinctly remember cradling you in my bosom and laying a hand on your shoulder as I slipped you a shiny, fully-sized, MBA Business Degree. Is it this small act of tenderness that's played in role in crafting these hijinks with James? As an aside, plagiarism detector dot net says 57% of your blurb is original and 43% has been plagiarised. What might surprise you is the sources it used for this report. The first was a site called estellar.com.au, the second was Bing, and the third was the New International Version of the Bible. Apparently, you got penalised for using the word, James. Did he steal his name from the Bible? So, if you are claiming that this show, Wankernomics, is your own work, please show us your workings. How did it come about? The ABC reported today that interest rates are expected to keep rising in 2023, not only making Reserve Bank Governor, Philip Lowe, the pinup boy in this month's Viagra Superstars Magazine, but it also means he would be the one with the hands pulling the leavers of Wankernomics in Australia. Are we right to admire Mr Lowe, or should we fear this currency cavalier? I asked my MBA students to share their favourite terms, the ones that make their bosses smile and admire their white collar status. I think it's wonderful to know you've got a saying you can use to get you out of trouble, a bit like a shibboleth (which is another term from the bible, James): Low hanging fruit. What are your thoughts about that? It's a no-brainer. Ducks in a row. In my research for my original Fringe show, 100% MBA Success - Whisky And Trivia With Professor Longsword, I uncovered a term that I had thought was pleasant but sweet but is actually considered passive aggressive. It's the term, Kind Regards. Apparently, Regards means I despise you but I'll grit my teeth and smile at you condescendingly, whereas Kind Regards means, gloves off, you little twerp, I truly despise you and am dreaming of ways to bring you harm. You'll be pleased to know I have done semantic research and come up with a replacement, it is Gentle Love And Kisses. Who would you love to receive a letter or email from, that's been signed off with Gentle Love And Kisses? And wouldn't that make workplaces warmer places to be? If I may, I would love to test you with a question I'll be putting to my audiences, just to see if you really are MBA quality. It's to do with coinhabiting office environments with other humans. Some of them speak loudly, all the time, robbing others of concentration. It's my contention that we can find punishments for these people while still keeping HR happy by staying within the guidelines of the 1949 Geneva Convention. So, Charles and James, imagine the most annoying people you know, standing close by and carrying on with a loud conversation about football, the opera, or their child's report card. Which of the following punishments is NOT permitted by the Geneva Convention A: Shoot them with a small calibre pistol, loaded with rubber bullets, and then lock them in the stationery cupboard until 5pmB: Convene a court and try them for crimes against humanity, provided you select a fellow employee or manager to represent themC: Lock them in boardroom for 2 minutes with Kyle Sandilands Of course the answer is C because the Geneva Convention strictly prohibits torture. Did you know two of our universities in SA are in merger talks - the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia. And given how sharp you two seem to be, if we were to consider merger talks between my school and yours, what are your mandatory, non-neogiable requirements that you believe every business school needs? Our mandatory items are twofold. A school hot tub for faculty meetings. And a school sommelier. Have you any final thoughts or insights to share to encourage people to see your show, Wankernomics? 00:28:11 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Triangle by Monsoon June. Monsoon June is performing a few shows during the 2023 Adelaide Fringe, simply entitled Monsoon June, featuring songs from their latest album, Shadows. Monsoon June: Phil Banytis composer/guitarist, Alex Mcleod saxophone, Spiro Kolovos bass, Zed Crawford drums. They formed in 2018 and play contemporary, melodic jazz. Shadows, their latest album, was released last year. They're playing at three different venues during the Fringe, in Prospect, Port Adelaide, and Brighton, with full details at adelaidefringe.com.au.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

It now an occasional segment when stellar beverages are discovered. 00:03:02 Greg Fleet, A Star Is Torn Greg Fleet, “the comedian who can act”, is back with a new play this Adelaide Fringe. That's how I began my 2021 review of Greg's previous play, The Twins, which I loved. This Fringe, he is back with a new show, A Star Is Torn, in which two stand up comedians meet, resulting in laughter, tears, and laughter. Greg, in A Star Is Torn, you play a "one-time king of comedy who is brilliant but is gradually drinking and drugging his way out of the limelight". Did you choose this autobiographical set of character traits because, when it comes to acting, you folloow the Stanislavski Method? Seriously, this play, The Twins, and an earlier piece, This Is Not A Love Song, all have very broken lead characters. What's your attraction to these characters? One thing I have noticed in your work is that when you have a character who is "drugging themselves out of the limelight", you put a lot of focus on how their actions impact those around them. Tears flow with your work. Do they flow in the writing process? Can you take us through the story of A Star Is Torn, and introduce us to your co-star, Krutika Harale? Your blurb says, "Stand-up comedy is internationally “sexier” than ever," why is this? And can you give us a potted history of the scene since you began? I am not a prude when it comes to explitives but I have a very low tolerance for comics who rely on vulgarity for laughs. To me, they're just scooping up the easy stuff. Ban them from swearing, and watch them flounder. Your thoughts? You go warts and all in your writing. Do you have any filter? I ask because I think I still have a parental filter at work in my mind. One step further on transparency. It's one thing to be personally open, but you also break down maleness. In reviewing your work with Ian Darling in Twins, I wrote: We might think that we primarily get “man stories” all the time due to white male privilege, but we don’t. What we usually get is male bravado and posturing. The Twins takes us behind the veil and into the swirling thoughtscape of imposter syndrome, anxiety, questioning, and vulnerability that still exists in even the most privileged of people; well, at least those who allow time for reflection. Do you get pushback from "blokes" about your work, especially in the blokey world of stand up? 00:37:34 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Walk by Emilie Kate. Emilie is making her Adelaide Fringe debut with Songs and Stories with Emilie Kate. The blurb for her show says, ‘Growing up. Absent father. Loving home. Country kid. Moving. Trauma. Self hate. Love. Broken heart. Moving. Loneliness. Self love. Moving. Falling in love. Moving. Getting everything you’ve asked for. Staying still. Living every single moment.’ Sounds intriguing and satisfying. All the best to Emilie with her show, Sunday afternoons at My Lover Cindi, with an hour of original songs and stories.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

366 - Of Droughts And Flooding Rains

In Dorothea Mackellar's poem, My Country, she refers to Australia being a land of droughts and flooding rains. With the River Murray currently flooding many river towns and with people on the land preparing for a summer and its threat of bushfires, we've recording a dual podcast with Belle and Pods from the Adelaide Hills Farmcast.

It now an occasional segment when stellar beverages are discovered. 00:04:28 The January Edition Of The Adelaide Hills Farmcast In this chat, hear a special episode of the Adelaide Hills Farmcast with Belle and Pods from Adelaide Hills Farm Services. They've been producing a monthly show in the style of a farming almanac coupled with feature interviews. It is aimed at small acerage landowners and farmers throughout the Adelaide Hills but now also includes the Fleurieu Peninsula. We arranged this joint recording as our effort to shine a light for city people on the challenges and responsibilities faced by rural landowners and producers; the deeper the mutual respect, the better for all of us. In your Farmcast, you usually start with an almanac of specific activities property owners and smal acreage farmers should plan for in the upcoming 4-6 weeks. You get lots of good feedback about that. This month, though, for January, we're just restructuring the almanac into a list of five things property owners and small acreage farmers should think about over the summer break. Water for stock and for essential supplies should there be a bushfire Bushfire Risk - spraying, slashing, firebreaks, even farm firefighting units Summer weed spraying to keep on top of weeds Around the home garden and house paddock - mulching for water conservation and plant health And if you’re going away over the summer - alerting neighbours and consider using sensors 00:43:37 Now, to the interview proper. I want to start with the most famous extract from Dorothea Mackellar's poem, My Country: I love a sunburnt country,A land of sweeping plains,Of ragged mountain ranges,Of droughts and flooding rains. Do you really love the sunburnt nature of parts of Australia? What goes through your minds as people from the land? What was life like on the farm around Christmas time growing up? I have family in Karoonda and often Christmas is pushed out or brought forward depending on weather conditions and crops. Some landowners close to the River Murray are having an anxious time either being flooded or being threatened by floodwaters or by having to come up with contingencies due to transport disruptions, what have you heard? What would you like us city folk to keep in mind when we head out and saturate farming areas for our Christmas holidays? 01:03:46 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Without It by Lucas Day from the album, Swell. Lucas says ‘Without It’ started as a song about the ego - but has come to mean something more. It’s a bell that chimes anytime his bad habits rear their ugly heads. He's hoping it will fuel positive change in anyone who needs it. It takes time to learnYou are not your thoughts That's the opening line of this song and Lucas Day is spot on. Trouble is, most of us go flat out all the time and don't get a chance to actually stop and notice our thoughts. Belle and Pods, do farmers get more of a chance to have time to reflect, when either sitting in a tractor for hours on end or travelling long distances or doing repetative mending or cleaning? Have you had any ah-ha moments of thought while out and away from distractions? And do you think it is due to not having distractions or is there something about being closely engaged with animals, plants, dirt, and weather?

Y Natural. Why Local?

Recently, in an article entitled, Y Natural: The Inner Beauty Of Buying Local When You Say You Will, on his Talked About Marketing website, Steve wrote: "There is a resigned sadness among many small business owners like Barbara Gare from Y Natural, when they hear friends say they believe in buying local but don't actually follow through. As small business owners and leaders we are right to feel disappointed in these friends while at the same time making sure that we are living up to the shop local ethos ourselves. The magic of our economy is that it is the circulation of credit from one party to another that keeps the lights on and wheels turning, so this matter of following through on buying local is a win win win that is worth going the extra mile for." For those reasons alone, we're bringing back Barbara's delightful and detailed interview from 2016, but we're front loading it with Steve's small business segment on FIVEaa with Richard Pascoe. We hope you find it inspiring. In the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a "new" song by Courtney Robb. And Steve plugs his 2023 Adelaide Fringe show: 100% MBA Success: Whisky And Trivia With Professor Longsword.

It now an occasional segment when stellar beverages are discovered. 00:02:26 Christine Schloitte On November 17, 2022, the SA Music Awards will be held. To help tune in senses before the big event, we're joined by the CEO of MusicSA Christine Schloithe. But first, let's here a few snippets of artists who joined us in 2016 when we attended the SA Music Awards with then Musical Curator, Dan Drummond. Thom Lion and Troy Benson (hear Thom Lion tracks on episode 142 and episode 31) Nate, Chris and Jesse from Recreator after winning Most Popular Rock Artist (hear Recreator on episode 167) Zaachariaha and Michael from Electric Fields Hannah Yates (hear one of Hannah’s songs on episode 156) Tara Carragher (you can hear Tara singing on episode 148 and episode 65) I am dressed Dino Jag style with my tshirt and relaxed gym gear - so it doesn't matter if I sweat later when I shake a leg like Elvis. Now, Christine, the majority of your professional background has been in areas like, arts and cultural programming, producing, touring, and festival management, so your heart must have had a ringside seat as Covid struck. What was your journey like and what are some lessons learned from that unexpected curve ball of destruction? As we brace for another Covid wave, what are you expecting artists to do to prepare? My colleage at Talked About Marketing, David Olney, is a former Adelaide University lecturer, and he noticed a dramatic change in students as Covid struck (and things are still very, very different). From a music industry perspective, what are some of the trends or strands you can see from SA’s emerging artists, that might have been forged in the Covid cauldron? What are shaping as some of the more common pathways our artists are taking to “fame”? How would you describe the “business model” or models that seem to be working for our artists? Are record labels active in promoting local music? I ask because I just heard an interview with Jono Coghill from Powerfinger, saying how their record company did heaps for them and probably more than they realised at the time. What is the state of live performance venues and options in SA and nationally? Now that we don’t have just a few outlets for content, which meant airplay equalled success and fame for the likes of Cold Chisel and Aussie Crawl, are we moving into an era of splintered stardom, in which people have niche audiences rather than mainstream (as the main rule of thumb)? How are fans accessing music these days – are many still buying, or are they just streaming and artists are relying on concert tickets for income? We've featured one original song by a South Australian artist every episode since 2013, which is 360-odd songs. Probably a lot more than any mainstream radio stations have played. I haven't seen a lot of mainstream media coverage of the awards or playing of local artists - how frustrating is this? What needs to change to make it improve? Thoughts for young artists starting out – what would you advise them? And touching on some of the artists in contention this year, with any particular stories of struggle, interest, etc? In particular, And tell us about Hindley Street Music Hall. Where is it, what's special about it? Is there a budding singer or musician inside you? 00:51:21 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Abyssinian Suite Pt 4 by the Shaolin Afronauts. The song was only just released in September this year. Have you heard it or have you seen this band? The Shaolin Afronauts are an Afrobeat band based in Adelaide, Australia. Their music is heavily influenced by West African Afrobeat artists such as Fela Kuti, but also incorporates elements of avant-garde jazz, soul and other traditional African and Cuban percussive rhythms.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

363 - Farming Through Drought

When the opportunity arose to interview Chris Thomas about his time of farming in the mid-north of South Australia during the great drought of 1982, not even flood-damaged roads could stop Steve from travelling to Crystal Brook to record the stories. Meanwhile, a different climate story was celebrated in Adelaide last week; 50 years of Seeley International and its mission to provide reliable, innovative, and affordable cooling to people everywhere. While we don't cover that story directly, there is a snippet in the introduction of Steve's recollection of the night at Ayers House, that uncovers a quirky bit of SA history. And as a board member of Radio 5mbs, Steve often listens to the station's Liston On Demand programs and during one recently he heard a song by local band, Suedan, that demanded to be played on this episode.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Farming Through Drought 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. This week this includes a recollection from the Seeley International 50th Anniversary dinnar at Ayers House, where Steve sat next to friend and client, Donald Kay, from Don Alan Pty Ltd. Steve mentioned this during his regular segment about small business on FIVEaa with Richard Pascoe, and it seems Donald will be hauled into FIVEaa before too long. However, Donald was mentioned because of some trivia about Sir Henry Ayers that he discovered and shared. Also, Steve recorded the rare and boisterous "Go Power" chant that Sir Frank Seeley is known for. He did a moderate version in front of the dignitaries on Wednesday night, which Steve captured for posterity. 00:00:00 SA Drink Of The Week No SA Drink Of The Week this week. It now an occasional segment when stellar beverages are discovered. 00:06:32 Chris Thomas One of Steve's clients, and a former guest from episode 353, Alex Thomas from the Plant A Seed For Farm Safety and Save A Life, Listen To Your Wife campaigns, was heading to Crystal Brook last week to see her father, farmer, Chris Thomas, who farmed during the dramatic 1982 drought. Given that Australia is currently experiencing flood, Steve thought it would be the perfect time to remind all of us of the extremes of nature that farmers need to contend with to keep us eating fresh food. Chris also got very ill during his farming career, due to Q Fever and a series of other complications, meaning Alex has had to care for him since she was 15; inspiring her to spearhead a down-to-earth farm safety business. She delivers talks and runs workshops all around Australia and as you'll hear in the interview with her dad, farmers have a certain mindset and make up which is all about "getting the job done" and not so much about "self care". That is changing but it's also how these dogged humans have been able to push through and craft farming enterprises to support society here in Australia. This is not an exhaustive documentation of farming or the drought; it is a story about passion and the eeking of a living in South Australia. 00:42:50 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have One Day by Suedan. Steve heard this on River Blues, a blues program on Radio 5mbs, which you can listen to via their website or by subscribing in a podcast app (there are also jazz, world music, and classical programs). Suedan was formed by Sue Filmer and Danny Filmer in 2016 as a musical duo. They had played in bands for many years but never together. Although Sue Filmer and Danny Filmer had played in many bands before they had never played together. Steve first became aware of them while working with them through his business, Talked About Marketing, helping them set up their website. To then hear them on 5mbs with a song befitting the mood and tone of farming through drought was too much of a coincidence not to feature the song in this episode. Suedan produces roots and blues music, using cigar box guitars, cajun drums, blues harp, and vocals. Catch their music, check out their upcoming shows, and hire them, via their website, Suedan Music.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Adelaide podcaster, Leesa Scanlan, is shining the spotlight on mental health Anxiety and depression get talked about a lot but it's taking a South Australian podcaster, Leesa Scanlan, to bring a dose of gentle, frank reality to the high tide and low tide of mental health. We start our discussion about mental health in the SA Drink Of The Week segment, which features a beer from Shapeshifter Brewing Company. And we bring our discussion home in the Musical Pilgrimage, with a new song by Rhys Howlett. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Some time we will talk about suicide and self harm, if this is triggering for you please take a moment to decide if you should continue to listen.

In preparing for our chat, I've been thinking about your comments about diving on a recent episode. You said diving was the great escape from issues and worry because it's just you and your breathing and the ocean. It made me wonder if drinking has become my "diving". I've always prided myself on drinking for the flavour, not for the buzz, but during the time of Covid I think I've started using alcohol as a pressure relief valve. I'm not saying diving and drinking are similar - beyond their relief they bring to stress and worry. Ultimately, diving leaves you fitter and healthier, drinking just leaves your body with a little extra work to do in processing alcohol. So I am dropping the SA Drink Of The Week as a permanent segment on this podcast. It will still appear when I have an amazing drink to share, but I want to model a lifestyle in which drinking is something done as a pleasureable and mindful activity, not as a medicinal "necessity" or a fait accompli when people get together. I'm not throwing the bottle out with the bath water, I'm simply severing the ties of habit. 00:13:43 Leesa Scanlan The host of fellow South Australian Podcast, High Tide Low Tide, is Leesa Scanlan. Leesa and her guests talk about all things mental health because in Australia, one in five people have a diagnosed mental health condition and nine Australians die from suicide every single day. Having been diagnosed with depression and anxiety more than 16 years ago Leesa truly understands the power there is in being able to share your story, not only for the person themselves but for every single person listening and relating to parts of it. And her storytelling is disarmingly frank and insightful, which is why she's joining us today. Leesa, the blurb for your podcast says: This podcast is for the one person who needs to hear it today. What do you mean by that? How do you define Mental Health? Do you think it's possible to have "perfect" mental health? RUOK Day happened recently and for the first time I saw some cynical push back on social media - things like, if one more person asks me if I'm okay, I'm gonna punch them. Can you understand that? I've read parts of your diaries, Leesa, starting when you were age 7. Well, to be clear, I've watch you read them on your Instagram feed. Have you always been reflective? Socrates is believed to have said, "the unexamined life is not worth living" and it makes me wonder, is there a fine line between healthily reflecting on our lives and obsessively being consumed by mulling things over and over again and getting stuck? Leesa, the reason I wanted to get you on The Adelaide Show was episode 10 of your podcast in which you talk us through your lived experience of dealing with mental health, especially the way it manifested itself as cutting. I had known that cutting is a thing but your explanation was so clear, this action which I had never been able to process, became understandable. Can you define cutting and why it worked as a solution for you at various times in your life? You lived in Indonesia for six years, during which time your work with tourist ventures and diving gave you enough money to survive on, I think you say you basically you were poor while living in Indonesia. This gives us a chance to ask the $64 question, literally: were you able to be poor and happy? Was any happiness due to being poor or due to working in an enjoyable industry? I want to return to diving, mentioned during the SA Drink Of The Week segment, would you say diving just brings symptomatic relief to mental health issues, or does it actually help change things in an ongoing way? Finally, you have an episode in which you list 10 tactics for helping to cope with mental health issues. Could you share a few of them to finish off our chat? 01:04:11 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have  Dutch Cream Potatoes, by Rhys Howlett. Rescue Dogs is a collection of songs that Rhys has written over the past 10 years.  And Dutch Cream Potatoes is a perfect song for this episode because it touches on the weight and endurance of sad memories, and the healing power of walks on the beach. In the lyrics, Rhys writes: Sometimes the best of intentions can lead to the saddest outcomesAnd I don't work hard but I laugh a lot and the thing about walks on the beach that I loveIs how storms will pass, when you're out in the open you can see the blue skyIf it's off in the distance at least you can see itAnd wait just a minute you'll be walking right in itSo maybe when people feel isolated it's a matter of getting out into the openTo breathe in the sky, to stop asking why and start asking how, to make things better And another lyric that seems poignant: I think a lot about patterns of behaviourHow factory settings restore when we're troubled and stressed You can buy and stream Rescue Dogs and other albums on Rhys Howlett's Bandcamp page.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

360 - Horse Riding And Horse Loving Around Adelaide

According to one of our guests in this episode, Andy Ide, there are 1.5 million horses in Australia and about 5,000 horse businesses. So the question is, why does our love affair with horses linger, given it's been 100 years since we replaced them as our transport partners? We then pick up the sound of horses as modes of transport in the Musical Pilgrimage, thanks to a song we were introduced to by Libby Green of Classic Carriage Drives in the Adelaide Hills. The full spotlight, however, goes to South Australian horse, Noddy, who works with people with disabilities in southern Adelaide as part of disability services provider, Heartfelt Support. The SA Drink Of The Week is a Nippys Cloudy Apple Juice which we try guest taster, Dr Travis Brown from fellow South Australian podcast, This Medical Life.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Horse Riding And Horse Loving Around Adelaide 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:04:30 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is Nippys Apple Juice, which Steve tries with guest taster, Dr Travis Brown, from the This Medical Life Podcast. We chose this drink to honour the connection between horses and apples/carrots, but also because Travis referenced horses in a recent episode of his podcast about blood pressure, in which a horse was an integral part to the first measurement system. Discover the episode from the fellow South Australian podcast, This Medical Life: Hypertension, Too Much Of A Good Thing. 00:11:02 Robert Godden and Noddy Earlier this year, I met Noddy, a brumby who is an integral part of a program for people with disabilities. He is co-owned by, Robert Godden; a political contributor to The Adelaide Show who also co-runs Heartfelt Support, a disability support service in Southern Adelaide. I was prompted to do this interview because brumbies evoke a lot of love from keen horse people and, tragically, they made the news for the wrong reasons recently when 11 horses were slaughtered in Kosciuszko National Park. So the South Australian we're really shining the spotlight on today is Noddy, but his spokesperson will be Robert Godden, which is the next best thing to hearing these stories straight from the horse's mouth. Robert, let's start with brumbies themselves: how are they different from other horse breeds? Why do so many people love them? Of course, on the other side of the equation are people who view brumbies as a community that requires "management"; we're looking at you, governments of NSW and Victoria. What's the latest we know about these eradication activities in Kosciuszko National Park, involving Arrowboy and 10 other brumbies? Here's a media release on the topic from the Australian Brumbies Association. Is their method the only way of dealing with brumbies? Was Noddy ever at risk of a similar fate as Arrowboy? What's his story? Beside horse riding, what are the bonds and interactions like between Noddy and his riders? 00:35:09 Andy Ide Owning horses is similar to having children; you're responsible for a lifelong adherence to care for them. This means keeping records of their health and development, whether or not you plan to sell them or their heirs. Enter Any Ide and his software product called Horse Records. As Andy explains, Horse Records is a locally-developed package that delivers everything you need to record performance, veterinary, farrier, feeding, dentistry, chiropractic, serving, foaling dates, pedigree, progeny and much more! 00:48:02 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Singing Shoes, by Pete Denahy. We are breaking the rules slightly because Pete is not a South Australian singer songwriter however the horse-loving community let us know he was heading over to SA for some local concerts and his song is all about that lovely sound of horses hooves clip clopping along our roads arising from horse riding and horse and carriage travel. So, we've made an exception in the way a ridden horse will dodge obstacles and adapt its path on the way to its destination. One of Pete's fans is Libby Green who runs Classic Carriage Drives in the Adelaide Hills. So we have a chat and a ride with Libby who then introduces Pete's song.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

357 - Magic In Adelaide

Have you ever found yourself in awe of magic tricks being performed right under your nose? Steve has been, which is why he invited Adelaide-based magician, Barry "Baz" Seeley onto the podcast to explore the discipline and the mindset of doing performance magic. The SA Drink Of The Week with a Brockenchack Shiraz from Eden Valley, ably supported by our guest taster, Glenn Malycha.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Magic In Adelaide 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:02:30 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is the 2019 Brockenchack Zipline Shiraz, ably supported by our guest taster, Glenn Malycha. As you'll hear (and see) in our tasting with Glenn Malycha from Wine Pro Australia, we learn that the winemaker behind this wine is Trevor Harch, who is a "former" Queenslander who's fallen in love with our patch of turf! 00:17:35 Barry "Baz" Seeley If I had three cups and a ball and performed a trick in which you lost track of where my ball was, I'd be performing one of the first magic tricks in history, dating back to about 3BCE. We would both know there was no "magic" going on. We'd both know I was using your senses to deceive you. But we'd all enjoy this moment of illusion. Over the history of The Adelaide Show podcast, we've chatted with illusionists, Michael Boyd and Laurence Leung, but in this episode we are sitting with an official magician of many years' standing, Barry Baz Seeley. Links and references mentioned in the podcast: We recorded in the underground home of SA's magicians: Bombshelter Magic Adelaide Magic Clubs: Australian Society of Magicians (ASM)Phil Ahrens 0438 055 188 2. International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM)Steve Burford 0402 462 881  Barry, before we get lost in the world of magic, magicians were long associated with the devil and the occult. I mention this because we're recording this episode underground in a WWII Air Raid Warden's "bomb shelter" in Adelaide and I'm worried about being made to disappear. Will there be some dark arts performed down here today? Which clubs use these clubrooms and how did they come to use them. It seems like the clubs are taking the cloak of secrecy quite literally? I was watching The Prestige with my daughters a few weeks ago and they demanded it be turned off after a scene in which the magician came off stage and had to empty the dead bird out of his magic trick equipment. We'd all thought he'd made a bird disappear. He had, but in a gruesome way in which the cage collapsed lightning fast, killing and squashing the bird out of sight. He later pulled a similar looking bird out of his pocket to release to the crowd. Do you think that was based on truth and, if so, how many birds do you go through? There was a strong focus in The Prestige on the secret craft of developing an elaborate stage trick, most of which was all based on pure mechanics. How does that still of complex magic compare with the magic you do which I've experienced first hand, in which you are up close and personal and don't have the benefit of distance to disguise what's going on? There is a murky area that lies between logic and wonder and I feel this is where your craft exists. It's why I've been talking in terms of dismissing "magic" and focussing on the art of illusion. How do you react to that? In other words, what mindset do you embrace when performing or thinking about magic? What mindset should audiences adopt to get the most out of a magic show. I'm particularly thinking of us older, jaded theatre goers. Is there something we can or should learn from children? Do you make up your own tricks? And, if so, what's the inspiration and the process? Let's talk about the discipline of being a magician. How long does it take to perfect a trick? And what are the obstacles you must overcome? Does it get boring doing the same trick many times? Is there any such thing as a new trick? What happens if you forget what you’re doing when you’re in the middle of a trick on stage? What happens if a card trick does not work, you’ve made a big thing with choosing a card and it turns out to be the wrong one Can (and do) you apply magic craft in daily life? We're going to film a trick in a moment but can you teach us a trick just through audio? And can you tell us what happens in this bunker during meetings? 01:22:19 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Cha Ching, by Mad Dog Malcolm from the newly released album, The Adventures of Mad Dog Malcolm, The Street Fighting Cabaret Artiste. Mad Dog Malcolm is known around comedy circuits as an undefeatable street fighter who has embraced a career as a cabaret singer to lift himself out of his rut of shady deals and living on the edge. He is the alter ego of singer and comedian, Gerry Masi, who will be stealing Mad Dog's work on Saturday, August 27, 2022, at the Laugh Lounge in Adelaide. The song we're about to play is not for the faint hearted. It is dark, black satire of the fact that whenever there are terrible catastrophes, some entertainment promoters cash in and make a fortune as people try to escape the bleakness of life. So, you have been warned. Pause this now if you have kids listening or you're at work, but if you're still here, listen on and marvel at the affrontary of Mad Dog Malcolm.

356 - Lest We Forget Ukraine

Our media outlets have amnesia when it comes to stories that "drag on" for longer than a few days and the Russian invasion of Ukraine is one of them. So in this episode we sit down with Adelaide-based, Ukrainian expat, Natalya Boujenko, to get a deeper understanding of Ukraine's history and culture, of the war, and of the various things we can do to help Ukrainians. The SA Drink Of The Week with a Sorby Adams, Jutland GSM, ably supported by our guest taster, Glenn Malycha. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a new song from Vince Contarina, whom you might know better as the front man from The Zep Boys. He has a whole lotta original songs going on, and we're going to hear one. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Pitch-black Podcast From Our Dark Sky Reserve00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:06:15 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is the 2019 Sorby Adams, Jutland GSM, ably supported by our guest taster, Glenn Malycha. As you'll hear (and see) in our tasting with Glenn Malycha from Wine Pro Australia, we learn that the winemaker behind this wine is Simon Adams, who spent about 20 years at Yalumba as a senior red winemaker, so there's plenty of experience that the Sorby Adams label draws upon. 00:17:57 Natalya Boujenko On 22 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered military forces to enter the breakaway Ukrainian republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, calling the act a "peacekeeping mission", just 48 hours before launching a large-scale invasion of Ukraine in what he called a "special military operation" to "demilitarise and denazify" the country. For many Australians, we'd been aware of Ukraine but not actively focussed on it until our natural spirit to support the underdog kicked in and many of us instinctively felt great anger towards Vladamir Putin for his vicious and illegal war. Our media outlets jumped onto the Russian Invasion story and "milked it for all it was worth" until the inevitable lure of sport and celebrities drew their attention away. Today, I had to go to page 38 to find a mention of Ukraine in The Advertiser, despite the signing of a deal to allow wheat exports from the country having significant importance for avoiding widespread hunger around the world. To help deepen our understanding of Ukraine and to sift through some of the details of what life's been like for her fellow Ukrainians, Adelaide-based expat, Natalya Boujenko, has agreed to join us and share what she knows. Help Ukrainians Australia Kozak Bar & Kitchen I read through the sprawling history of Ukraine in preparation for this interview, and I must say it is one of highs and lows and waves of invasion and shifting alliances. Down here in Australia, our neighbours are states and there is little more than state rivalry; we don't have Victoria getting all "miliatary" against us. So, just in general terms, can you help plot Ukraine's history and it's place in its part of the world for us? In my reading, I discovered that decorated Easter eggs seem to have been developed in Ukraine, well before it became Christian. Is that widely practiced today; the painting of eggs and using wax in the process? I also saw that so called "Cossack Songs" are considered a rich part of your musical history. Earlier this year, I heard about Ukrainian punk band, Beton's cover of London Calling, renamed Kyiv Calling. What are your understandings of Ukraine and music? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWQUkRKqp2E And are their any traditional dishes that make you homesick or proud of Ukraine? When I moved to Hungary (Alexis, take a sip) I realised that few people in Australia appreciated the advanced, modern, historical, layered histories of other countries in the world, especially those in the "eastern bloc". Could you find some ways to describe Ukraine to help us get a sense of where it is really similar to Australia and where it is really different, perhaps looking back 4-5 years, prior to this war? Poland and Germany and Russia and Austria all have "history" with Ukraine. Has that been stable in recent history? When you and I met at an event recently, you made some comments about the gritty reality of life on the ground in Ukraine, with details that did not match was I was reading about in the media. I told my family and my 12yo responded with a set of questions that are just as good as any I would come up with, so I promised Caitlin I'd ask them on her behalf. What’s happening that they don’t show us in the news? Is it still happening or is it just the news not showing us any more? How do you feel about this? I've never experienced what it must be like when a foreign nation invades my country. Have you got any way of describing this for us? And living in the aftermath: A bomb blast takes seconds but there is no quick fix to the infrastructure. We grumble if the power is out for half an hour, but having no power or water or gas, that's hard to truly comprehend. Especially the myriad ways it would dominate all our thinking and decision making every moment, just to survive. And what can we do that really has an impact in Ukraine (I always fear that donations to some places evaporate and never make it through to do good). For example, very early on I discovered that the people behind Crocobloc, a collection of plugins for WordPress websites, were based in Ukraine, so I used the support channel to send this message: Hi team. This is not a support request. I just wanted to say that our little team here in Adelaide, Australia, is right behind Ukraine and we are disgusted by Russia’s evil invasion of your country. We hope you can survive well and prosper and we hope our western allies in the EU are able to support you better. The person I was talking to was completely taken by surprised and very grateful, saying it helped make her day. I've also made a donation to a Ukraine magazine but am considering subscribing to Kyiv Independent to show support to fellow journalists. Is that sort of thing useful, in your opinion? I know you have been involved in arranging support. Is there a good source of news? I've turned to Al Jazeera to have a constant supply of solid reporting. 01:22:41 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have What Things? by Vince Contarino from his new album, Goin' Home. It's tight, loud, blues-infused rock, with plenty of respect given to the riffs, meaning songs have long intros allowing the guitars and sometimes the Hammond organ to "get their groove on". Vince has some dates coming up performing songs from the album 'Goin' Home' with special guests (and favourites of The Adelaide Show) Lazy Eye, and Stuart Day. We'll put a link in the show notes but basically they include Friday August 12 at Pepper Tree in Aldinga, Saturday, August 20 at the Three Brothers Arms in Macclesfield, and Friday, August 26, at the Naval Association in Port Adelaide.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

355 - Pitch-black Podcast From Our Dark Sky Reserve

In this episode, we stay very still to let our eyes adjust before recording interviews at night time in the River Murray International Dark Sky Reserve. We met the originator of the Dark Sky Reserve idea for the Mid Murray region, Chris Tugwell, former SA Chief Scientist-turned-astrophotographer, Don Bursill, and astronomer, Joe Grida. We didn't get to interview Ivy from the Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Site but we hope to get back for a separate episode because her stories of her people and the land were deeply intriguing and impressive. We also have a chat with Captain, Max Lindsay, on board the PS Marion, which had docked on the side of the river, along with Michelle de Leeuw-Smeets, Tourism & Heritage Officer – Mannum Dock Museum of River History. The SA Drink Of The Week has made its mark in the space-time continuum; a non vintage Rosé from David Franz Wines, ably supported by our guest taster, Glenn Malycha. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a new song from Kyan Burns, which has a big sound for a big mission. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Pitch-black Podcast From Our Dark Sky Reserve 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:51 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is the 2021 Cuvee Non-Vintage Red Rosé from David Franz Wines. As you'll hear (and see) in our tasting with Glenn Malycha from Wine Pro Australia, this wine features 108 varieties in every bottle - that would make for a fun wine night! 00:16:16 PS Marion interview We recorded this episode on the PS Marion, a fully restored heritage paddle steamer built in 1897 and one of the last operational, heritage, steam driven, wood fired, overnight passenger carrying side paddle steamers in the world. Captain, Max Lindsay, has a lot of experience on the river and driving boats, and I'm told he loves the PS Marion. As does Michelle de Leeuw-Smeets, Tourism & Heritage Officer, Mannum Dock Museum of River History. Max,  what is it about a vessel made of wood and steel that can make a grown man LOVE it? Can you sort out one discrepancy for me? The official website says the Marion was built in 1897 but some accounts say it was built in 1896 as a barge them converted to steam power in 1900. Will we ever know the exact dates? The Australian National Maritime Museum: Although planned to be a steamer PS MARION was originally built as a barge. In 1896, shipbuilder A.H. Landseer from Milang on Lake Alexandrina South Australia was commissioned to build a steamer by Mr. George Swan Fowler, a prominent Adelaide business man. Unfortunately Mr. Fowler died soon after building began, and his trustees decided that the hull should be completed and offered for sale as a barge. It was named MARION and first floated in February 1897. The Marion played an important role in the early years of Federation by being the platform for the openings of lochs, even at one time having Prime Minister Andrew Fisher on board. Who else has graced its boards? One thing that sets the Marion apart is that its owners and designers were very good at making sure the vessel could change with the times. I believe it's configuration changed a few times from simply carrying goods to being able to carry passengers, and its big funnel is of an adjustable height. What else can you tell me about what it carried? Most of us experience the Murray as a quiet, meandering old soul but does danger lurk under the surface for riverboat captains? Tell me about the Mannum Dock Museum? What do you get from hopping on board while the PS Marion is stationery? Should we return to paddlesteamers for moving freight? 00:39:37 Dark Sky Reserve Eight out of every 10 people on this planet, live under night skies that are ruined by light pollution. And, yes, that includes Adelaide and surrounds. While it's nice to see the Adelaide Oval lights juxtaposed against a deep red sunset, what happens when we lose sight of the stars at night is that our sleep patterns become disrupted, nocturnal habitats of our native animals become disturbed, and we get cut off from being reminded just how spellbinding the night sky can be. To me, this means we forget the healthy reminder, captured beautifully by Carl Sagan many years ago, that we are living on a pale blue dot amid a vast, vast, incomprehenisible universe. I think this is healthy because it can remind us to look out for each other as humans, and not get swept up into our fickle vanities. But before I get too deeply lost in philosophical meanderings, let's meet tonight's guests who are joining me in the dark on a cold night on the PS Marion, in the middle of the River Murray International Dark Sky Reserve; Chris Tugwell, .... The IDA (or International Dark Sky Association) defines an International Dark Sky Reserve as a location on public or private land where we can experience starry nights of exceptional quality and becomes protected for its scientific, natural, educational, cultural, heritage and/or public enjoyment. At the moment, the River Murray International Dark Sky Reserve is the only IDA reserve in Australia. Chris, there are many questions but first, where is this River Murray reserve? What criteria did you have to meet to get listed, what things have to keep happening to maintain the listing? How should or can South Australians interact with the Dark Sky Reserve? What do we think about Elon Musk's dozens of broadband internet satellites that are apparently visible in the night sky? How connected are we to the stars - not re astrology but in relation to understand space and time? 01:19:22 Joe Grida interview Joe is an astronomer who entertained passengers on the PS Marion Dark Sky Reserve cruise, and he shares his thoughts on the night sky and star gazing. One bit of trivia: Do you have any idea why this being episode 355 is perfectly linked to the topic of the stars and time? It's because our calendar is based on 24-hour days but the orbital period of the Earth is not an exact multiple of 24. Over time, calenders get out of step with the actual orbital period. After moving from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, we had to do a little jump in time. So, in 1582 the date jumped from 4th October to 15th October, making that year the only one in history that had 355 days! What other delights and stories can we gather from the night sky access? He also referenced former guest, Vic Gostin. Here is a link to Vic's interview: 220 – Vic Gostin On Time, Rocks, And Space You can have the "Joe Grida" experience as part of one of the Day/Night tours arranged by Juggle House. Here are the details for the Dark Sky Gold Stars Sunset Dinner 01:29:29 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have We Won't Let Them Win by Kyan Burns. Kyan wrote this song after observing kids struggling through the Covid-19 pandemic by being isolated from their peers and more exposed to bullying due to being online more. It features hip hop artist, Boffa, and a kids choir.

354 - Beer & BBQ Festival 2022

In this episode, we get ready for the 2022 Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival, which has been stopped twice before by Covid but this time is all set to kick up some smoke at the Royal Adelaide Showgrounds from July 15-17. The SA Drink Of The Week is Five Minutes Away by Big Shed Brewing. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a song by one of the bands appearing at the Festival, Mums Favourite.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Beer & BBQ Festival 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:02:45 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a collab beer from Big Shed Brewing. It's called 5 Minutes Away and it was brewed for the 2022 Beer & BBQ Festival in collaboration with local band, Bodyjar. 00:11:21 Gareth Lewis and Craig Basford We are well aware of the impact Covid had on the arts, as well as a variety of businesses and community endeavours, but it seems to really have had something against the Beer & BBQ Festival. They had two Adelaide Beer & BBQ events cancelled, one of them on the day before which must have hurt more than accidentally touching a barbecue hot plate! And they had a third event canned; their home brewed event in January was called off because there was too much uncertainty around the changing nature of restrictions. In terms of major events in SA, this crew has every right to pack it in BUT co-directors Gareth Lewis and Aaron Sandow have gotten back into the kitchen (even if that kitchen is outside) and put together an impressive lineup to ensure the Beer & BBQ Festival can rise from the ashes, so to speak. Craig Basford from Big Shed Brewing, and Gareth Lewis from the Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival, thanks for joining The Adelaide Show. Buy tickets here for the 2022 Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival Learn more about Big Shed Brewing here In my intro, I referenced you getting back into the kitchen "even if the kitchen is outside" and a thought to myself, the art and the act of barbecuing is not as exclusively outdoors as it used to be because when we recorded episode 127 with The Smoking Joint crew, I reckon Grant and the team did a lot of work with their black gloves on the kitchen bench. What is the state of play for serious barbecuers these days? How much action happens away from the barbecue or the smoker? As a person who barbecues on a traditional barbecue with a chargrill plate and a hot plate, and who is done in 30 minutes, I'm in awe of the more complex and slow approach to BBQ. Are there first steps someone like me could take to start producing the "wow" effect with his barbecue? What would you start with? Does good BBQ always take a long time? Is a smoker a must? How important are thermometers and can I trust them? A mate of mine, Jesse Donnarumma from Smoke & Steel, always uses meat rubs, etc. Because I don't plough through good meat all the time, whenever I'm ready for a beautiful steak, I want to taste the steak, and not seasonings other than a little salt and pepper. Is that cool or am I really missing a deep vein of gold here? Pickle juice - can I buy spring gully pickles and just drain the juice from them? Tell us about the brewers on board? Tell us about the bands on board? And give us your insider's tips on how to get the most out of this festival. 00:50:57 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Joan of the Arcade by Mums Favourite. Mums Favourite is one of the bands appearing at the Beer and BBQ Festival in Adelaide, July 15-17, 2022, and they'll be serving up their own selection of indie/rock/blues, garnished with a generous dash of haunting/frenzied power. I can hear influence from early Nick Cave and a sense of freedom to follow each idea much like Kate Bush although in a grounded, and earthier way. But, of course, they are themselves. In Joan of the Arcade we get a bass riff to die for, tight drums, great lead guitar solo, and sinister/sultry vocals by Sasha.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

353 - Radar Reminder App By SA Firefighter Turns Hose On Speeding

Our special guest in this episode is inventor and firefighter, Steve Grealy. What attracted us to Steve is the way he encounters problems or challenges and then investigates way to solve them. In particular, his pair of anti-speeding apps grabbed our attention, which we go into in some detail in our chat. The SA Drink Of The Week is a Howard Vineyard 2020 Shiraz, tasted with guests from another South Australian podcast. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a song by Jennifer Trijo.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Radar Reminder App By SA Firefighter Turns Hose On Speeding 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:10 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a Howard Vineyard 2020 Shiraz, tasted with Belle Baker from the Adelaide Hills Farmcast (a great local podcast if you're a lifestyle farmer in the Adelaide Hills) and her guest for her upcoming July episode, Alex Thomas. Alex is a sought-after speaker in the realm of practical farm safety and her website is well worth a visit: Alex Thomas. 00:09:13 Steve Grealy In Stephen Covey's book, The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, he shares and anecdote about finding ways to overcome our weaknesses. For example, by putting important things you need for a meeting the next day by your front door, means you won't rush off and forget them. In a similar way, senior firefighter, Steve Grealy, has applied this thinking to speeding. He knows he's got an inclination towards being a leadfoot BUT he 100% determined to drive safely and within the speed limit. So, he has co-developed an app called Radar Reminder that acts like a driving coach to keep us alert to speed cameras and road hazards, and make sure we stay conscious of not creeping. Radar Reminder website Radar Reminder App for iOS phones Radar Reminder App for Android phones Speed Camera Club website Steve, I love your creative response to understanding your own weakness. I would call that applied creativity! We are going to go into the details of the app later but I'd love to start by hearing a story about THAT MOMENT when you knew you needed to create a tool like Radar Reminder. You piqued Today Tonight's interest, too, I hear? It's not your first invention though. You had something involving accelerators? Some people might think it's a bit surprising having one former member of our emergency services trying to undermine the speed detection work of another service. Is that how you see it? Or do the Fatal Five link all services together. As a firie, were you ever called to a car accident scene? I don't want to go for any morbid titilation but I do want you to describe what those first moments and experiences are like, where some people's lives have been drastically or fatally disrupted. What's it like being on duty and "waiting"? In the city, there must be dozens of false alarms in office buildings and hotels every week, if not daily. How do you psych yourself to be at the top of your game when you know that almost all of them will be false? In my days as an office worker, I admit being rather blaize about fire drills (and I wasn't alone). What do you want to say to "young Steve" and to anybody else who shares that character flaw? Have you attended many actual building fires? What have been your experiences? How similar or different is the routine of a South Australian fire fighting team compared to all those US TV shows? Do you recall having any gutteral reactions during 911, on behalf of your colleagues-in-fire-fighting? On a lighter note, there are a lot of popular culture references to firefighters being HOT. I saw a t-shirt saying, "I hate being sexy but I'm a firefighter so I can't help it". Is there pressure to keep the bod in shape inside a fire station, or does that just come with the territory? Now, back to Radar Reminder. It's free or $2.99 to remove ads. Exactly how does is work? How accurate is that data that SAPOL puts out about locations? They have other speed detection units, don't they? Can you update your app with road hazards? There's an online community, too. 01:03:07 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Someday by Jennifer Trijo. Someday is the title song from an orginal cabaret show Jennifer wrote in which audiences are inspired and motivated to achieve their dreams and life goals now rather than wait until one far-off, distant day when conditions might be perfect. You can read The Adelaide Show's review by Ekkia Evans here: Someday. Jennifer's finalising plans to take Someday to the Eastern States (Sydney and Melbourne) later this year. Jennifer has just completed touring with Once the Musical in Perth as an actor-musician. She has more gigs coming up with Emma Knights (see Steve's review of Emma's show, Myths, Legends, and Fantasy) during the winter season which will soon be announced on Emma's website. Jennifer is in rehearsals for another musical which is soon to be announced so she can't mention just yet. No doubt details will appear on her website when ready: Jennifer Trijo.

352 - Empathy: Where Sex Meets Science Fiction

In this episode, we explore the creation of worlds within science fiction with Fay Lee, author of Empathy, and Matthew R Davis, literary horror author, in a conversation recorded at the launch of Fay's book. The story of Empathy circles around the life of a luxury pleasure-nymph, an augmented human capable of echoing and amplifying a client’s every indulgent sensation, and aside from being an intriguing thriller, it also raises many issues about power and privilege. NOTE: This episode does cover adult themes. Listen with care. The SA Drink Of The Week is a Norton Summit Vineyards Pinot Noir. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a song by guest, Matthew R Davis, from his band, Blood Red Renaissance. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

For others, it is power. While others have sex for the sensual thrill or as a drug free pathway to relaxation. In the new science fiction novel, Empathy, Adelaide-based author, Fay Lee, hones in on the controlled application of sexual gratification through the eyes of a sex worker in a bleakly dystopian world. It makes me wonder how Isaac Asimov would have codified this aspect of life in the way that he made the Three Laws of Robotics? Perhaps that might make good discussion fodder for your book group after you've read empathy. But first, let's explore the themes of this book with its author, Fay Lee, and fellow author, Matthew R Davis. Buy Empathy online Buy Matthew R Davis books We are recording this at Fay's book launch and we've all just watched a video in which the people at Hawkeye Publishing gave some background to Fay's journey to publication, while also raising an intriguing observation about the chief protaganist. More on that later. Let's begin at the beginning, Fay, and flesh out a little of your background to give some context to this chat. You were born in Port Moresby, which is part of Papua New Guinea, Australia's closest neighbour, but which might as well be on the other side of the world. Have you mined any memories of PNG for the world in Empathy, or of any characters? You also brazenly and proudly dub yourself as an engineer, saying that engineers make the best science fiction writers. Why is that so? Our other guest for this chat is Matthew R. Davis. Matthew is an Adelaide-based author and musician with more than sixty short story publications to his name thus far. He was shortlisted for a 2020 Shirley Jackson Award, has been nominated for many other accolades, and won two 2019 Australian Shadows Awards. His books include If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, Midnight in the Chapel of Love, and the forthcoming novella The Dark Matter of Natasha. Matthew, I think it's fair to say that your dark fiction is commonly described as horror. Are you comfortable with that and what does "horror" mean to you? Fay, your publishers said it took 18 months to get the blurb right for this novel. I'd like to read that now and then ask you to embellish it as needed: The ultra-rich have abandoned Earth. Cruising far above its congested surface in lavish Sky Towns, they partake in the ultimate luxury-pleasure-nymphs, augmented humans capable of echoing and amplifying a client's every indulgent sensation. So who would kidnap a nymph, torture her, and leave her for dead? When one of Sky Town's most prized nymphs wakes to find herself missing a sizeable sum of both money and memories, she has no idea who took her, why they did it... or what threat she poses to their monstrous plot. Slipping back into her world of splendour and seduction, she must navigate its hidden webs - both old and new - to find the spiders lurking within, and retake her stolen humanity. Combining the vision of Asimov with the voice of Atwood, the author creates a world where empathy is a service, a privilege, and a vice. For one pleasure-nymph, it may also be her only weapon. Fay, you set the goal of writing a novel in 2012 and, if my notes are correct, within three weeks you had the draft of the current novel we're celebrating today AND you had RSI? Why? Were you handwriting this or using a really clunky typewriter? How does this marry with your approach to writing, Matthew? Given that you wrote this so quickly, I imagine you were tapping into something rich in your subconscience. How did you settle on sex work as the basis for a novel? I would like to explore whether or not Empathy sits within the realm of feminist literature, especially because invoking sex work brings related topics like power dymanics to the fore. But to set the scene, I'd like to play a snippet from your publisher, Hawkeye Books, because there is an amazing discovery they draw attention to, that arose for them after a number of readings [insert bit about character not having a name] Was it a deliberate ploy, not giving a name to our pleasure nymph? If so, why? If not, how could that have happened? One of the main reasons you are here tonight, Matthew, is that you reviewed Fay's book and, I believe one of your observations led to some changes. Are we allowed to hear what the change was because I am a theatre reviewer and I am fascinated by the dynamic of an artist listening to a trusted reviewer and then making a change to improve their art? The cover of this book is one of contrast. A deep red, textured background is backdrop for an ornately made up and seductive, disembodied eye. How did you arrive at this? And, Matthew, what's been your experience with cover art selections? Does this world of ebooks put different demands on covers and cover art? You are both dubbed as speculative fiction authors, an umbrella term for work that draws upon elements that don't exist in reality or nature or history or even the present universe. What's the attraction? And given that creativity often rises to the challenge of restrictions, do you find ways to still subject your work to rules? You've both been published by traditional publishers. Would you ever consider self-publishing? Do you have advice for aspiring writers?

351 - Meet your NFT (non-fungible token) Muse on your NFP (non-fungible podcast)

Welcome to your non-fungible podcast as we hear about the Muse Frame. If you move in technology circles, you would have heard the term "NFT" (or Non-Fungible Token) bandied about quite a bit over the past year or two. However, along with terms like Metaverse and Cryptocurrency and Blockchain, your understanding might be a little vague. Steve's was, so he invited local entrepreneur, Dylan Blaquiere, CEO of Muse Frame, to give us a layperson's tour of these terms as well as share insights into his new product: A muse frame which can collect, verify, and display your art purchased with an NFT or non-fungible token. The SA Drink Of The Week is 36S Blood Orange Vodka - nothing Russian here! And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have Dino Jag back with When The Day Comes.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Meet your NFT (non-fungible token) Muse on your NFP (non-fungible podcast) 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:05:20 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is Blood Orange Vodka by 36S from the Adelaide Plains. 00:07:23 Dylan Blaquiere In medieval times, fungi vice meant to serve in place of. In the 1600s, this gave birth to the word, fungible, which also meant to serve in place of. It wasn't until the early 1900s before usage of the term fungible began to rise, peaking in the past 10 years as a pretty cold, hard capitalist term for describing  workers who are "virtually indistinguishable from others" in terms of the value of their contributions in the workplace. But fungibility has returned recently in relation to tokens you can buy to prove ownership of digital assets, aka NFTs or non-fungible tokens. A new Australian technology company based here in Adelaide is champing at the BIT (see what I did there), to have a seat at this table, through a new product called Muse Frames. Prepare yourself. You're about to be immersed in terms like Metaverse, Bitcoin, Blockchains, and Digital Wallets but my goal is to get you through this without needing Google Translate because I want The Adelaide Show to be your non-fungible (or irreplaceable) podcast for interpreting this new World 3.0. To help me achieve that, I welcome the CEO of Muse Frame, Dylan Blaquiere. Dylan, when was the first time you ever used fungible in a sentence? Dylan, we are going to talk about your innovation, which is this release of the first Australian digital frame exclusively manufactured to display non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and your collaboration with the Australian Open's "AO Metaverse" but for all of us to appreciate what you're doing, we need some background to this fairly new raft of technical terminology. Is this a good mud map?FungibilityArt and its ownership (physical and digital)BlockchainBitcoinMetaverses A five dollar note is fungible. If we both had them and swapped them, nobody would care. Grade 2 corn kernells are the same, no matter which farmer grew them in what country - to be Grade 2 is to be of a certain standard. However, a Lamb Roast Dinner that I make compared to one made by Jamie Oliver, I would say is non-fungible - you can't just swap one for another. How would you describe it? As an aside, business writer, Michael Gerber's E-myth Revisited is all about building businesses on fungible humans so that you can just replace them ... but Seth Godin in Linchpin says we need to make ourselves non-fungible to thrive PLUS business owners like Michael Gerber are making businesses that are easily copied if you just have expendable, fungible, swappable humans. You're an entrepreneur, what's your take? Should you gather irreplacible people around you and face a big hole if you lose them, or play it safe? Art. NFTs don't always relate to art but given the nature of Muse Frame and your current project, it's a good place to start. People have been buying art for centuries and when you buy something physical you either have it or you don’t. Is it fair to say that possession is 9/10 of the law in relation to physical art, and therefore there’s no need for any sort of ledger or account book to prove that I own something? When you buy an NFT (non-fungible) token that says you own this artwork, does it actually mean ownership, giving you rights over it, or does it mean you own copy number 2000 of 2020? Someone just learned this the hard way in relation to the book, Dune. An anonymous NFT group called Spice DAO (decentralized anonymous organization) spent $3m on a $40,000 rare art book: Jodorowsky’s Dune (which was the concept artbook for an ambitious project to make a film version of Frank Herbert’s Dune that never got off the ground. These "spiceheads" planned to convert the book into NFTs, burn the physical copy, and adapt the story into an animated series. However, they soon learned that all they bought was the physical copy of the book, not the copyright to Dune. Your thoughts? To Blockchain now. Can we imagine it as a big excel spreadsheet with columns to describe an object or hold a legal agreement, and then other columns to capture the time, date, and place, in which certain people have taken actions like buying or signing, but that it's got replicated copies of itself all over the net and a security system that reports everything, eg, someone tries to change the value of a cell, it is recorded and traceable. How close am I? Blockchains are closely related to Bitcoins. And this is where I'm lost. I just haven't had the headspace to investigate this speculative type of currency. Can you give us an overview? I do hear that the computer energy needed to "mine" bitcoins is huge, and blockchains similarly, so much so that some countries have banned mining (or restricted the use of bitcoin) like Qatar, Turkey, China, etc. Does it worry you that this new realm of connectivity is going to hurt the planet? Our last stop before getting to Muse Frames is to get our heads around (or into) metaverses. A metaverse is an immersive, virtual environment where a likeness of you can move and interact with others. For example, I joined Second Life when it began more than a decade ago. I got to move my avatar, 4InTheMorning Writer, around to different worlds (I logged in again today and boy is it still clunky). However, these days, when I think metaverse, I think of my Oculus Rift in which I put on the headset and play cricket at Lords and it is quite realistic in a cartoonish way. What does the Metaverse mean to you? Now, can you tie all these strands together so we understand Muse Frames and Tennis Australia, the Kickstarter campaign, and the future of your business. Is this (or will this be) in the realm of mums and dads? If I wanted to mint The Adelaide Show logo, what would I need to do? Finally, Lot Fourteen is SA's innovation precinct, and the government is calling for expressions of interest from cafe operators to create a new, healthy cafe there. I think of geeks working around the clock, eating pizza, drinking Coke, probably smoking weed, and just burning up their bodies. Has that changed? What would you consider a perfect nerd cafe? 01:07:50 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have When The Day Comes by Dino Jag, which reached dizzying heights on the National Top 10 AIR Chart late last year. We love Dino, love his energy and the quality of his music, but also the quality of his heart. At the time of putting this episode out, Dino was preparing to be part of the UKRAINEstock Music Festival supporting refugees affected by the conflict in Ukraine.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

350 - Eggs In A Days Work

Every day, Days Eggs produces thousands of eggs to feed families in South Australia and beyond, thanks to their very clever and hen-friendly farms and systems around the state. In this interview, we discuss hen living conditions, egg types, cooking with eggs, and even things to be wary of when re-using egg cartons. The SA Drink Of The Week is Run With The Hunted - see below. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have an original song by Libby O'Donovan, presented to us by Zac Tyler, one of the people behind this weekend's Seasonal Sessions at Woodville Town Hall.

The story behind this farm's production of this humble source of protein is fascinating. So I thought I'd ask the owners, Dion and Anne Andary, to join me to scratch around and peck at all the various topics related to chickens and eggs. Welcome. As I was planning for this interview, I asked myself, what topic should come first; the chickens or the eggs?  I was tempted to start wtih chickens because so much of the egg story these days is focussed on their welfare but then I remembered that eggs have had a chequered history, especially in the west, so I'd love to hatch our story there. Dion and Anne, you started Days Eggs in 1987. What was the nutritional and public health status of eggs at that time? In fact, Jason Gosseck, writing in Medium, recalled growing up amid the cholestrol scare of the 80s and how the price of eggs plummeted and how his dad doubled down and they had eggs every meal. How did it play out in your world? Anne, I believe you did most of the sales work in the early days. Who was buying and what was involved? Have you noticed any changes in egg consumption over the years? Fitness junkies with raw eggs, the brunch culture, the "egg whites good, egg yolks bad" movement, etc? How are most of your eggs sold today - supermarkets, commercial trade, etc? For a long time, I never cooked eggs at home, even though I loved having poached eggs when out? I just didn't like the eggy smell when doing dishes. Bizarre! Now I have an egg poacher. How do you cook eggs? Any tips? We're recording here at Lower Light/Two Wells, which is the headquarters of Days Eggs. Can you take us through the story of how you outgrew your first base and then bought up other farms as they became available? I'd like to turn to hen welfare now because even this morning in our BnB at Claire, they provided eggs and I recoiled when I saw Cage Eggs. So let's walk through Cage Eggs, Barn Laid Eggs, and Free Range Eggs, because each have their pros and cons. People argue Free Range leads to happy chickens. How do you know when a chicken is happy? 00:56:48 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Don't Feel Down by Libby Donovan. Before we get there, though, I want to bring in Amelia Ryan's "other half" Zac Tyler, who is another arts professional, known by many for his work with the artistic directors of the Adelaide Caberet Festival (Kate Ceberano, Barry Humphries, Ali McGregor and Eddie Perfect). He now runs his own company, Release Creative, who have gone on to create Barossa Contemporary, a multi-disciplinary arts festival in the Barossa Valley, and he's also worked with Amelia to create Seasonal Sessions, a weekend of intriguing song, story, and cabaret at the Woodville Town Hall, May 6, 7, 8 2022. The weekend kicks off with local original music on Friday May 6 at 8.00pm and on Saturday May 7 at 6.00pm will feature a celebration of Australia's pioneering women of pop and rock starring Amelia Ryan and Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2022 Icon Award winner Libby O’Donovan in UNSUNG. At 8.00pm Charmaine Jones and the GOSPO Collective deliver the classic Aretha Franklin standards in Soul Serenade - The Aretha Legacy. On Sunday 8 May at 3.00pm, the acclaimed writer Clementine Ford and her bestie, Libby O’Donovan, deliver a secular sermon that mines matters of the heart in Love Sermon. But, back to the interview with Zac, let's get the goss out the way. Of the Cabaret Festival directors you worked with, who is most memorable and why? What is this arts festival in the Barossa?

And Steve was lucky enough to do a tasting with one of the co-founders, Bernie Woods. 00:12:28 Matt Cahill, The Violets I like to write my own introductions to interviews but the wordsmithery I've found online for the subject of this interview, the band The Violets, is so sublime, I'm just going to use it verbatim: From the day they first formed in Adelaide, back in 1990, The Violets were an enigma. Created from a fusion of shimmering guitar lines, sonic abstraction and an almost cinematic vision, they smashed together light and dark, and made beautiful agony dance cheek to cheek with pretty mystery. It was pop, it was prog, it was flat out indie rock but it was never quite like anything else. And I think we'll discover that our guest today is quite like nobody else, singer/songwriter, guitarist, producer: Matt Cahill. Before we start plucking the petals of the flower that is the story of the band and of the music industry, let's stop and smell The Violets with Mary who? MARY WHO? This is where I start with a confession. I just wasn't around in Australia in the 90s. I was living and working in Hungary and then moved to England (yes, dear listener, Alexis Cattely. take a sip - he has a drinking game based on how often I bring my time working for Radio Budapest into the conversation). As a result, the 90s really is a dark area in the map of my musical memory. That applies to everyone, for example, I only just discovered The Cat Empire in time for their goodbye concert. So, I am coming to this interview with no nostalgia, with no common points of reference, so I'll apologise in advance for any awkward questions. That said, I have recently been introduced to The Violets with your re-release of Leased Regret, and a special preview copy of your new album, Smoke, Mirrors, And Other Half-Truths, and I've become quite smitten. And because of your dramatic history from early success and Triple J airplay, then record company signings, then record company feuds, then the band dissolving, then the band reforming 20 years later, I feel like we have a rare opportunity for some musical palaeontology to help us deeply understand the workings of a band and the music industry. So, Matt, can you take us to the beginning and piece together how The Violets came to be? What did rehearsals look like? (And sound like to neighbours) It's very common for people to suffer from Imposter Syndrome and self-sabotage their creative desires (doubt their intrinsic qualities and vision). What was the internal journey like when it came to sticking your head up above the trenches and risking judgement by music lovers and entertainment power brokers? So, what would you nominate as your first "break"? Would that involve the song, Ain't Love Grand? AIN'T LOVE GRAND I recall watching the biopics of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash and in at least one of them, they capture the moment when these fledgling icons first heard their music being played on the radio. Can you describe what it was like hearing The Violets on Triple J for the first time? And do you remember where you were and what you were doing? Tell us about the South Australian Music Awards. What's the process and what was the experience like? Does a music award and airplay have a psychological effect in the writing process? Does it start making you double-think yourself (if that's a term)? Here's my naive observations of 90s music. We had simple harmony vocals and drum/guitar/keyboard/(sometimes brass) in early country/folk/blues, then rock and roll simplified and made the sounds harder with some doses of strong hooks. Then things got more experimental as backing tracks and layers came to the fore in the late 60s early 70s. Then we got more sophisticated, clearer production sounds (big sounds) in the 70s (along with the emergence of glam and a smattering of punk). Then the 80s really brought high power and rock and roll and/or electric music to the fore (some of the sickly songs from the 50s and 60s were recreated or evolved but with modern sound engineering). Then the 90s. I see electric "fake" sounds dumped in favour of dirty, murky, emotional, throaty, frenzied masses of guitars, a token set of drumlines, and vocalisation that was not so much focussed on the lyrics but on the sound of the voice. You could say, there was a trance like quality to the 90s sound, punctuated and differentiated by little crumbs of vocal quirks to satisfy our desire for some confection amid this serious mining of frustration and expression. Your reactions? Some examples: Somewhere has that hook - somewhere in the back of my mi-iind (play snippet) Are golden hooks like that planned when you write the song, or do they emerge in the studio, or can they sometimes be the prime idea? NERO - has that really full throttle, guitar intensity (play snippet) Does that feel good just going full bore? Mood seems to be given its due in the 90s, especially the mood of despair or melancholy. Can you explain why? Or am I misinterpreting things? There is a raw honesty, an open reflection in some of your songs that lets us get closer to your inner world that we might expect to be possible in polite society. Pretty Hate Machine is very self-critical, almost confessional. Can you take us through that writing journey? PRETTY HATE MACHINE Everything's going great for The Violets. You were a touring/recording act from Adelaide that was signed to Phantom Records for 13 years and then you secured a deal with KRELL/SHOCK records. Amazing. But that giddy height was where you became embroiled in a Record Label war, ultimately leading to you playing your last show in 2001. I can hardly imagine how bittersweet that must have been, walking away from such an enriching enterprise. Can you take us through that time? What did you do in your "in between" years? Our listeners will know of Evoletah (you can hear one of your tracks in episode 323, Run With The Hunted. Last year, you re-engineered and re-released your first album, Leased Regret. How and why did that come about? What was it like writing new songs together? We've already featured one of the songs from your new album, Sideways - which you can hear in episode 348 - but the first track I'd like to play from Smoke, Mirrors, And Other Half-Truths, is called Love Lies In The Rain. And the reason I want to start with this is because when you sent me the link to the album and I was listening while cooking, I found my random email sent to you while in my apron and with the sizzling of the oven behind me. I wrote: "Love Lies In The Rain is a stand out to me." Shall we set this song up? LOVE LIES IN THE RAIN Discussion about the artwork for the video for Sideways. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGlsndZ-9-o Something I noted was how evocative this album is of my vague recollections of 90s music but also hints of some of the more complex 80s sounds (I'm thinking early Cure, Simple Minds, early U2). There's a noisy quality that is for your ears what scrambly busy artwork is like for the eyes; it demands stillness and application and rewards those who sit with it. Is that fair? Having said that, one thing I note in the new album is how much the "noise" aspect is actually more refined; we have more definition of the specific instruments and voice. Is that just a moving of the style, or is it about modern recording techniques? April's Fool, from the new album, is an example of the delicate qualities in this album. It has modern, adult music, but the lyrics contain snatches of kids' rhymes and allusions. Can you whet our appetites for it? APRIL'S FOOD It's 2022, how are things sitting? Given the long break and the curse of biology, you guys are older than many of the other bands vying for "ear" time. Do you think that will influence your experience over the next few years because US commentator and comedian, Bill Maher, recently said to the 90 year old William Shatner, that ageism is the one remaining discrimination that our society turns a blind eye to? Something else I'd love your comment on is the band name. I've found a UK band with the same name and a young band from WA called The Violets that seems to have started in the early naughties while you guys were in hibernation. Does that cause any confusion? Where and how can people support you? Finally, I found another quote from a random email I sent you while cooking and listening to your album: All Went South is brilliant- am thinking of a full episode actually. Watch this space. Well, we have not only watched this space, but we've filled it with story and music. Thank you, Matt Cahill. Would you mind doing the honours and introducing the song that will take us out? ALL WENT SOUTH 01:28:18 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we're going to listen to a couple of tracks from a new album featuring Professor Flint and Gemma Dandie, These Curious Things. The tracks we'll hear are, My Dog, Trey, and the title track, These Curious Things. Michael Mills shares some of the back story and Gemma shares what working with Michael is REALLY like ;-) Here's the best link for this project: Professor Flint linktree link.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

348 - Opera everywhere, music in a park

Opera everywhere, including the beach, and world music in a park This is a very special episode if you enjoy music in manifold ways. We're covering opera, world music, and alternative rock, so prepare for some sensory overload. Firstly, we turn to opera because State Opera of South Australia has two intriguing programs lined up that are exemplars of the company's stated aim of introducing new audiences to opera. We'll be joined by State Opera's Head of Music, Anthony Hunt, and its Artistic Director, Stuart Maunder. Secondly, we chat with passionate attendees of Womad, recorded at the event last weekend. Finally, in the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature the latest song from The Violets - the great, Aussie alternative Rock band that has reformed after, well, let's say, quite a few revolutions of the sun, and they show they still have it. Oh, and for the SA Drink Of The Week, we try some Green Ant Gin, as tasted at Womad. PS Here's our final reminder that Steve Davis and Ekkia Evans have been reviewing Fringe shows again this year. Read the Adelaide Fringe reviews here, throughout the Fringe. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Opera everywhere, music in a park 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:01 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a Green Ant Gin by Seven Seasons Distillery, founded by Larrakia man Daniel Motlop. This premium distillery uses native Australian ingredients to create a taste of the world’s "oldest new" flavours. 00:04:40 Stuart Maunder and Anthony Hunt, State Opera SA State Opera South Australia is launching a series of recitals this weekend ahead of the much-anticipated Boheme On The Beach - yes, that's opera by the seaside. I know State Opera has a mission to introduce opera to new audience but this seems to be evidence of the doubling of efforts because the recitals will be quite intimate - you'll be up close and personal with some of the celebrated chamber musicians and opera singers - and taking opera to the beach is a very Aussie move to "normalise" listening to opera. Let's explore these new frontiers with State Opera's Head of Music, Anthony Hunt, and its Artistic Director, Stuart Maunder. Bohème On The Beach Songs For The Sea Songs For A Day Songs For A Muse I'd like to start with the recitals. You'll be holding these at UKARIA Cultural Centre, which is a lovely venue in some of the last remaining natural scrubland around Mount Barker. It's not big. So, Anthony, just how close are we going to be to the performers? What headspace should one be in for attending a recital. I ask this because I've been doing a little work with 5MBS the Classical and Jazz music station, and there was an intriguing comment that a few listeners made when I was interviewing them. They said that they can't have fine music on in the background, they must listen actively. Are you expecting that most of your audience will be the type of listeners who LEAN FORWARD in their seats? OR, is it possible to enjoy these recitals the way Leigh Warren advised me to enjoy dance; just lean back, don't try to focus on anything in particular, and absorb the experience? Anthony, we will share the link for more information in the show notes, but can we have some highlights of the program? I would say, your elevator pitch, but that conjures an image of musak, which we don't want associated! Stuart, it took everything within me not to curtsy when I came into your presence today because I still remember the absolute perfection of your May 2021 production of Sweeney Todd. I was swooning for weeks - and I went unshaved! I know State Opera wants to broaden its audience and I noted two things. Firstly, my young cousin, Jamie, was there with a group of friends (all in their 20s); they'd made a special effort to attend. And, secondly, I brought along former Lord Mayor, Stephen Yarwood, who said he only accepted my invitation because it was me; typically he'd reject invitations to any concerts featuring country music or opera. But he left converted. Can you describe the alchemy involved? What cross-over potential does Boheme On The Beach offer? How accessible will this be to "new" ears? I've been reviewing theatre for almost 30 years and always take note of the projection of voices. How on earth will our singers project when you have such a large open area, sea breezes, and ocean waves to contend with, not to mention the occasional clanging of a tram? Is there a trend towards more engaging and interesting dramaturgy in opera these days; I note that State Opera's Barber Of Seville last November was very ornate in its acting demands on the performers. And what does La Boheme have in store? Finally, can we wear thongs to Boheme On The Beach? And does this create a precedent for Her Majesty's Theatre? 00:43:05 Womad voices Last weekend, Steve wandered the parklands at Womadelaide 2022, and bumped into some passionate advocates of the event who were quick, willing, and able to share some thoughts on why they're attracted and how proud they are of the organisers for persevering through Covid. Our Womad voices are: Karen Lewis Stuart Kuhl Evelyn Roth Alison James Heidi Angove 01:07:59 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we're going to listen to Sideways, the first track to be lifted from The Violets' first album in 20 years! Back in the 90s, if you listened to Triple J and other places where the cool kids hung out, you would have heard a few tunes by The Violents. They were signed to Phantom Records for 13 years and after eventually securing a deal with KRELL/SHOCK records, they ended up in a label war and ended up playing their last show in 2021. Fast forward to 2020 and in the event of the remastering the re-release of their 25th anniversary album, ‘Leased Regret’, which won music industry album of the year 1995, they decided to reunite and make an album that has just been released. It's called ‘Smoke, Mirrors & other half truths’.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

347 - Music from the soul to the screen

Exploring music from the soul to the screen in South Australia Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners and readers are advised that this episode and its show notes may contains images, names, and voices of people who have died. This is a very special episode if you enjoy music and "screens" in manifold ways. Firstly, we chat with Director/Producer/Writer, Philippa Bateman, who's just released a visually stunning and deeply moving documentary, Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow. It's about two of Australia’s greatest songwriters, Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter, and was filmed here in South Australia in Hunter’s Ngarrindjeri country. I will follow that interview with a few snippets from a humble documentary I made in 2003 called, Sorry Proof Country, which featured Doris Pilkington, the late author of Follow The Rabbit Proof Fence. In the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature the latest song from Kyan Burns - a singer songwriter from Gawler and SA Music Awards nominee, thanks to the radionotes podcast with John Murch. We were atttracted to it because the song lives on the "screen" through its vivacious video clip! And for the SA Drink Of The Week, we blend wine with the screen. It's an Eight At The Gate drop, which features in a Stan TV show based in Adelaide called, Wolf Like Me.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Music from the soul to the screen 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:28 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a 2016 Eight At The Gate Shiraz Cabernet, as featured in this scene from Wolf Like Me. This TV show on Stan is set in South Australia. In the scene, Isla Fischer is moving in on Josh Gad and supplies an "expensive" bottle of wine. Psst, it's not really expensive but it is REALLY good. 00:04:55 Philippa Bateman Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter would be considered by many to be two of Australia's great songwriters. Their music has a depth and authority that aligns in my mind with the likes of BB King, Bessie Smith, and Miles Davis, while also having a unique honesty, sadness, and resiliance due to their lives as First Nations people deeply connected to the land we call Australia. In 2004, they performed with Paul Grabowsky and the 22-piece Australian Art Orchestra after a collaboration that created a special musical event, Kura Tungar — Songs from the River. The river in question is our beloved River Murray, which flows through the late Ruby Hunter's Ngarrindjeri country, here in South Australia. Director/Producer/Writer, Philippa Bateman, has just released a truly awe-inspiring documentary that brings that event to life. It's called Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow, and she joins us now. Philippa, firstly, congratulations. This is a stunning and moving documentary and one of the things that struck me was your courage and fortitude as a filmmaker in this era of fast-paced cuts where scenes are timed to the second, to give us passages of minutes in which we can dwell quietly with the beautiful footage of the Murraylands and Coorong. What was the creative reasoning behind this? When was the seed planted for this documentary because if we're talking about an almost 20-year project, then that puts you in the same league as Stanley Kubrick who was renowned for not rushing projects in his quest for perfection? At the Adelaide Show, we put South Australian passion on centre stage, and aside from Archie and Ruby, the South Australian landscape has star billing in your documentary. Can you share some of your experiences in capturing Ngarrindjeri country on film - the river and the wildlife. I'd love to know if it spoke to you in some way and has affected you at all? The documentary gives voice to Archie and Ruby's retelling of their first hand experience of being among the Stolen Generations. It's emblematic of this production; we see great love and great hurt and we also see river time juxtaposed against city time, especially when the song Down City Streets is performed. Can you describe the weight of the responsibility as a filmmaker in honouring these extremes while maintaining layers of nuance. What are the musical highlights for you? And what mindset would you suggest audiences adopt when they go to see this in cinemas? We'll have links in the show notes and, as my partner said while we were viewing the documentary - we must buy this, I'll want to watch it again and again and again. 00:32:39 Sorry Proof Country Exceprts from Sorry Proof Country documentary. This is a documentary I made in 2003, in response to the then government's inability to say "sorry" in the wake of the Bringing Them Home Report into the stolen generations. In this episode, we play three snippets from these guests: Doris Pilkington Garimura AM, author, Follow The Rabbit Proof Fence Brian Butler, former ATSIC Commissioner for SA Sir Ronald Wilson AC  KBE CMG QC, Co-author, Bringing Them Home Report And here is the documentary, which was uploaded at a time when YouTube had a 10-minute limit on videos, so it has been split into parts one, two, and three. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-HsxTqKZJY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roSGpPncn5k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2MWLrYKLxQ 00:37:02 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song called Guess by Kyan Burns, pronounced (Kye-Ann). We discovered this SA Music Awards nominee via the radionotes podcast with John Murch. Click through to hear his expansive and excellent interview with Kyan.

346 - Adelaide Fringe at home and about

Adelaide Fringe at home, in a park, or in a theatre? Take your pick! The Covid-19 pandemic and ever-changing response protocols have prompted Hartstone Kitney Productions to make it possible to do the Adelaide Fringe at home this year, more than ever before. Joanne Hartstone and Tom Kitney formed their production company in 2017 and in recent years they have invested heavily in filming and streaming live shows. Amid the uncertainty of the pandemic, all their Fringe shows this year will only be available via livestream or on-demand. A reminder that Steve Davis and Ekkia Evans will be reviewing Fringe shows again this year. Read our Adelaide Fringe reviews here, throughout the Fringe. For the SA Drink Of The Week, local comedian and show producer, Wendy Torbet, will share a Coopers Pale Ale while discussing some stand up comedy insights. And Melbourne-based performer, Tash York, who lives in Adelaide every Fringe (and has done for many, many years), will share her insights on Fringe, interstate acts, and the glam/big hair aspects of cabaret. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we finish off with a track by Nick Vulture, that will feature in a show he's putting on called Southern Sounds.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Adelaide Fringe at home and about 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:04:53 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a Coopers Pale Ale, as recommended by Wendy Torbet, a comedian and producer who's producing some live, in-the-flesh comedy shows again this fringe. Shows mentioned: Open Mic Comedy at Legends Bar Fashionable and Fabulous The Good, The Bad and The Ugly 00:08:19 Adelaide Fringe at hom with Joanne Hartstone and Tom Kitney In 2020, when Covid-19 struck and theatres went dark, the State Theatre devised an ingenious program called Decameron 2.0; a weekly hour of 10 short monologues broadcast online. It was a hit and the production qualities were very high. Some amateur companies also experimented with livestreaming or prerecorded theatre with mixed results, typically due to lower budgets and lack of experience. Our guests today have truly honed the art of filming and streaming live theatre, so much so that for the Adelaide Fringe in 2022, all their shows will only be viewable online. Joanne Hartstone and Tom Kitney, welcome to the Adelaide Show. Shows mentioned: The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign by Joanne Hartstone / Hartstone-Kitney Productions The Reichstag Is Burning by Hartstone-Kitney Productions EGG by Erin Fowler Movement Spaces Between Us + Epilogue by Lewis Major Projects Satori + Unfolding by Lewis Major Projects You Can’t Hide In The Desert by Tracy Crisp Something In The Water by Scantily Glad Theatre Company Prepping For Theatre by Dr Lane Myths, Legends and Fantasy by Emma Knights Or just click HERE to see all Hartstone-Kitney Productions shows for the 2022 Adelaide Fringe I had my first virtual experience of Black Box Live, which is the manifestation of your livestreaming and on-demand theatre, last year. I'd missed Dr Gill Hicks' theatre debut, Alive And Kicking, so watched your on-demand version. It was wonderful experience and I'm glad I got to see it. I also know that because of her connections to the London bombings, there were readymade audiences in England who got to watch the broadcast performances. What are your recollections of that show and your other shows during the 2021 Fringe? And did audiences split evenly between in-theatre and online, or was there a skew? Can you take us through your thinking process for opting to only do Fringe shows online this year? Was it prompted by some heartbreak last year when restrictions were brought in right on the day before a big new season launch? Did you watch any of the Decameron 2.0? Thoughts? Apart from your productions, what livestreamed or on-demand theatre thrilled you over the past few years? I hear some people, Peter Goers is one of them, who poo poos livestream theatre, saying theatre is meant to be live, in the flesh. I think if you go back a few years to filmed productions that had one or two cameras and sound being recorded from the auditorium, then I would be with him. But I've seen some stunning and thoughtfully filmed theatre in recent years and have become quite a convert. Do you still encounter this sort of staunch resistance? Or is that fading like the claims of early luddites who railed against the printing press in 1492, claiming handwriting was the moral superior to mechanical printing? Martin Scorcese was once asked what was more important, vision or sound. He said, sound. And I agree. What's the trick for capturing good sound when livestreaming? How do you plan when to be close up and when to have a wideshot or even follow the action? I was at Essential Theatre's Shakespeare In The Vines at Sevenhill Cellars last weekend, and their actors had wonderful skills around projection. Would they blow your mics? Is there a different discipline required for actors on your sets? Are all shows suitable for filming? I think we've covered many aspects but can we just reflect on some of the pros and cons related to producing theatre for the screen. For example, one person can buy a ticket but a whole family could watch (so you bleed some ticket sales). Similarly, I am sure there are actors who thrive on audience feedback. On the plus side, theatre on screen allows for greater access for people with disabilities, plus a greater chance of fitting theatre into lifestyles. What have I missed? Are some of these factors more or less important than others? What do you have in store for 2022? I need to ask about critics. There seem to be some different assumptions about the role of critics. In an ideal world, how does the role of critic fit into the journey of your production? All reviewers got this note from the Fringe last week, in which it said: Due to the impacts of COVID, venue capacity limits and in an effort to not take seats away from artists and venues, Media will be able to select 1 complimentary ticket per event. We will still issue 2 complimentary tickets for Kids and Family events for parents/guardians to accompany children. If you need to request a second ticket for extenuating circumstances for an event you are attending, you may send a written request to [email protected]. Please note that this request will be evaluated by our MediaTIX team and in consultation with the artist and in many cases may not be approved. What makes me think there is some wrong-thinking happening in the Fringe head office is the notion that critics "take seats away from artists and venues" when, in fact, critics help spread the word about shows to potential audience members. It is completely shortsighted and seems to come from a notion that when I get a "free" ticket, I'm just in seventh heaven going on a junket, without any thought OR RESPECT for the 1-2 hours it will take me to invest my own time in reflecting on the show and writing and promoting a thoughtful review. Comment? Oh, and for the last three Fringes, I have run 4 events and there is no way I would ever have limited a critic to a single ticket. When you were producing "proper" theatre, you're obvious competitors were other producers of "proper" theatre. But now that you're in the online space, do you feel you are competing against TikTok and YouTube stars, let alone Netflix, Stan, and all the rest? How do you make sense of your marketplace? 01:33:55 Tash York Tash York is a Melbourne performer who lives a month of her life every year in Adelaide. Amid rumours that some people are saying that all interstate shows have been cancelled this year (yep, that's been discussed in the Fringe artists' Facebook group), I thought I'd have a quick chat with Tash for some "proof of life". Shows mentioned: Tash York's Happy Hour Wine Confessions with Tash York Tash, when did you start coming to Adelaide? What changes have you noticed with the Fringe and with Adelaide over this time? What is your mood and your thinking in relation to these pandemic times? Tell us about Happy Hour? Do you really improvise an original song, live? And tell us about the goon! You've also recently joined the cast of Confessions. Finally, you have big hair, your sidekicks do, also, along with big makeup. Most of us don't walk down the street like this. What is its appeal? Do you think it's voyeuristic escapism, eg, we watch you and marvel that we could never do that? 01:51:43 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song called Perfect Storm by Nick Vulture. Show mentioned: Southern Sounds Nick is part of Southern Sounds, a one day event on Sunday February 27th 2022 between 1pm (doors from midday) to 7pm at the beautiful Port Noarlunga Arts Centre.  It will be celebrating some of the amazing original singer songwriter talent from the south of Adelaide with award winning acts such as Loren Kate, Tilly Tjala Thomas, Jen Lush, Steve Ashley and, of course, Nick Vulture.  There are plenty of nearby eateries to grab a feed before and/or after, and drinks will be available inside the Arts Centre.  This is a one off event with amazing musical talent, so get on board and support this amazing bunch of musos and enjoy a day by the beach at the same time!  Tickets at Fringetix - just search Southern Sounds!Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

345 - Writing Wedding Vows

I choose you: Writing wedding vows with Tim and Jade Weddings have been disrupted during Covid, but despite the hurdles, many couples have still been tying the knot in South Australia, including Tim and Jade, our special guests in this episode of The Adelaide Show. They got married last year in an outdoor ceremony and their vows were so different from the ones usually heard, that we asked them to join us to share their thinking and writing process - and to check on their marriage progress, to date. Tim and Jade are both vegan, so for the SA Drink Of The Week this week we chose one of their go-to wines. It's made by Yalumba.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Writing wedding vows00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:02:53 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a 2019 Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache from the Barossa Valley. We chose it because it's one of Tim and Jade's go-to red wines, fitting in with their vegan lifestyle. 00:09:23 Writing wedding vows One of the great writers and wits, Oscar Wilde, references marriage in many books and plays and two of these quotes seem to be contradictory: The proper basis for marriage is a mutual misunderstanding. The other: Ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation. Back in October last year, 2021, a friend of mine, Tim Whiffen, married Jade Schulz, down on the outskirts of McLaren Vale at McCarthy's Orchard. What struck me about this wedding more than any others I had attended, was the quality of the writing in the service and in the vows. Of course, when you have two philosophers getting married, I guess one's expectations should be high. Jade and Tim, welcome to The Adelaide Show podcast. Let's deal with a few Oscar Wilde quotes. Tim, if you had to choose, which would be the better basis for marriage: mutual misunderstanding, or conversation? Jade, your thoughts? Another great writer in the world of romance, is Jane Austen, and perhaps Pride and Prejudice is considered one of the great romance novels of all time. One of the themes running throughout is the desperate and calculating nature of marriage and how Elizabeth keeps getting marriage proposals from Mr Collins. So much so, that at one point the story goes like this:“Really, Mr. Collins,' cried Elizabeth with some warmth, 'you puzzle me exceedingly. If what I have hitherto said can appear to you in the form of encouragement, I know not how to express my refusal in such a way as to convince you of its being one.”Who asked who to marry? Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran is listed everywhere online as the number one bridal waltz (what did you use). I would like to interrogate the lyrics briefly. And darling I will be loving you 'til we're 70And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious waysMaybe just the touch of a handOh me I fall in love with you every single dayAnd I just wanna tell you I am How did you two meet and strike up a romantic interest? So honey nowTake me into your loving armsKiss me under the light of a thousand starsPlace your head on my beating heartI'm thinking out loudMaybe we found love right where we are Is love something can be "found"? We are going to look at your vows now. And as a prelude, I found these writing wedding vows tips from brides.com. Let's see what you think about them. Say "I love you." Tell your partner you'll be there through thick and thin. Share personal stories. Actually make promises. Acknowledge the support you'll need from others. They also offered tips about writing them. Don't wait until the last minute. Plan to have your vows written three weeks before your wedding. Make a list of all your thoughts. Write up to three drafts. Don't try to include everything. Avoid words like "always" and "never." Embrace sentimentality. Go after laughter. Get inspired by books, songs, movies, and poems. Practice reading out loud. Indicate pauses and intonation. Ask a trusted friend to listen. Make a fresh copy of your vows for the ceremony. Keep the vows a secret from your partner until the ceremony. In fact, let's listen to them. Jade, you read yours first, so let's listen first: Tim, you are truly my best friend, the person I want to share every important moment with, good or bad. You are the person I want to share ridiculous jokes with and to do weird dances in the kitchen with for no reason. I feel so incredibly lucky to have found someone who is so genuinely kind, caring and thoughtful. You don’t hesitate to go out of your way to make the important people around you feel loved and valued, and I think that is such a beautiful quality. I love how passionate you are about the things you care about, and how much you love to learn and grow as a person. I am so unbelievably proud of you and I promise to make you proud too. We both know that I am absolutely terrible at making decisions, indecisive is an understatement, but one decision I am so confident in, is that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I don’t believe in fairy tales, but I do know that when I am with you I feel a sense of stability, comfort, acceptance and love that I never knew existed before I met you. I know that special moments in our life have been made so much better by sharing them together, and that we are both prepared to work on and grow our relationship for the rest of our lives, and honestly I can’t imagine anything better. I feel so fortunate to be able to love someone who enriches my life in so many ways, and cannot express how excited I am to marry you. Tim, I promise to always support and encourage you, to care for you and celebrate with you. I promise to value our differences as much as our common ground. And I promise to always be grateful that you eat all the yucky flavours of skittles and save the green ones for me. Today I stand in front of the people who mean the most to us and say, I choose you. I choose you over all others, I choose you to laugh with, to cry with and to grow with. I choose you to love, and I will choose to love you every single day for the rest of my life. There are three things, in particular, that struck me about your vows, Jade. Tim's nature of going out of his way to make people around him feel loved and valued. How did that crystallise as a quality to include in your vows? Tim eating the yucky Skittles for you. What are the bad colours? You finished by saying "I choose you". Describe the nature of that verb. Is it once off thing, or is choosing an on-going aspect of your relationship? Now let's listen to Tim's vows: It is without doubt that we have flourished together, Jade, we are more than the sum of our parts, and today I stand here committing to this relationship, considering myself beyond lucky to have found that. I have had many wonderful opportunities in my life, fortunately I was wise enough to recognise the greatest opportunity in asking for your hand in marriage. For all the knowledge and skill, I could seek to gain, I value this, what we have together, above it all. With all the beautiful and shiny things available in life, I am most drawn to your beauty, your nourishment, and your madness, because you are just mad enough to make things interesting. So, I won’t avert my gaze to the stars when what I’m most proud of is in front of me today. My heart chooses you, Jade, and this life we have. When I wake every day, I do so with you in mind, when I dream a dream, I put you right beside me because what would any of it be worth without you? I could achieve many things alone, but I have achieved true greatness in love. My head can only kneel before my heart in its choice, and so I promise, beyond rationality, to continue to choose you, in sickness and in health, through absence and presence, peril and joy. I will love you after every board game where you target me and win, I will love you through every late arrival to everything without fail, and I will love you after every time I have to give you directions to your own home. I trust that you’ll accept my love hand poured into every terrible or lazy meal I ever make, or the love I’m expressing through every annoying song I sing, and with the strength provided by our dearest friends here today I’m sure you’ll be able to accept my love and apologies after facing my many imperfections. As philosophers, you and I don’t deal in the absolutes of forever, but any fears I have are vanquished by trusting you. Your patience in the face of my flaws tempers my insecurities and your graceful love enriches my very being. Just knowing I don’t have to face trials alone is halfway to deliverance, so it is you and I against the world, dear Jade, I love you, and I’m elated to be married to you. Tim, some things I wanted to explore. What did you mean by, I have achieved true greatness in love? You say you will love Jade after she targets you in board games and wins. What is this a reference to? You reference "graceful love" and not having to "face trials alone". Is this a key point for you? Questions from listeners about vows. Craig Mitchell, a friend and a Uniting Church minister. My question is about to whom the vow is given/addressed. There are family and friends as witnesses. Some of doing this publicly is that we are in a sense making ourselves accountable to others to uphold our promises, but also acknowledging that requires a supportive community. For some, this 'accountability' also has a religious dimension. ie being accountable to a deity, but also recognising the need for the deity's strength. So my question is how this wider sense of marriage as a social and even religious contract/covenant with both accountabilities and the need for 'a village' shapes both the words and the intent? How would the vows be different in private? What are we expected to say or need to say because this is a public declaration? My second question similar to above is how social expectations might negatively shape such vows (including seeing them as irrevocably eternal or even lifelong when that is largely the exception)? How do you take something seriously without requiring the impossible? Third question: When do celebrants draw the line and say “I don’t think you should say that?” Michael Mills, actor and writer. Q: How is it okay that in some wedding vows in 2022, part of a woman's vow is still sometimes "to honour and obey." While the man doesn't have such a vow? How is this still a thing? And yes... I've witnessed it recently. A question from Colin Richard: Do people still say things like ‘forever’ and ‘always’ and things like that? They’re lovely ideas, but we should probably throw in the words ‘I will try…’ rather than promising something so many can’t achieve (because we’re all human, things change, and we can’t always deliver on the original promise). Your thoughts? Let's start drawing this to a close now. Perhaps a little more Jane Austen, this time from Sense and Sensibility: "Lady Middleton resigned herself... Contenting herself with merely giving her husband a gentle reprimand on the subject, five or six times every day.” I think that's a reference to nagging. Are either of you nagging each other yet? Have you learned strategies for dealing with such things? And in Much Ado About Nothing, Benedick says to Leonato, "Thou art sad; get thee a wife, get thee a wife!" Tim, is that good advice? Thank you, both. Oh, and this podcast interview is me fulfilling my pledge made at your ceremony, to keep you two in check and accountable. 01:26:56 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a live version of Call On Me by Siberian Tiger, recorded during their intriguing conversation with John Murch on the radionotes podcast. The episode featuring Bree Tranter and Chris Panousakis, is available here: Siberian Tiger, radionotes podcast. In the chat with John, Bree and Chris explain the rationale behind their choice of the Henley Sailing Club as the location for the video for Call On Me.

When this episode goes live, you should be finding your show notes on our brand new website, which has been put together by Tom Bussenschutt from Talked About Marketing. Thank you, Tom. The SA Drink Of The Week this week is a KI Spirits Gin. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we finish off with Leave A Letter by Kaurna Cronin.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: True Crime SA style 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:04:17 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is a KI Spirits Gin. 00:09:48 Dr Samantha Battams and Alison Oborn On the 15th of July 1920, Alexander Newland Lee was hanged by the neck until death at what is now called the Old Adelaide Gaol. It was South Australia's 53rd execution and it promted calls to end capital punishment. Lee was 31 years of age and the poisonings he was accused of carrying out, bore an uncanny similarity to those carried out by his aunty, Martha Needle, in Melbourne, which we discussed with Dr Samantha Battams when she released her book, The Secret Art Of Poisoning, back in 2019 on episode 279. Tonight, we are focussing on Lee because Samantha has now released a book about his crimes and trial, The Rhynie Poisoning Case, The true crimes of Alexander Newland Lee. Welcome to the podcast for your third time. And we're also joined by a former guest of the podcast, Alison Oborn from Adelaide Haunted Horizons, because not only has she read Samatha's book, but she's an author in her own right (Ghosts Of The Past - Adelaide Gaol Ghosts), conducts ghost tours in Old Adelaide Gaol, and is world renowned for her research and storytelling about dark crimes in South Australia. Welcome back, Alison. Samantha, let's start at the beginning and get an overview of the Alexander Newland Lee story. We know it took place in Rhynie, a small town about an hour north of Adelaide before you get to Auburn and Clare. Alison, what are the striking passages that stood out for you? How similar are the Lee poisonings to the Martha Needle poisonings - and do you think Martha inspired Alexander? How much ambiguity was there at the time about his guilt? I ask this because reflecting on this story in 2022, we're more aware than ever that every week in Australia, one woman is murdered by her parter or ex-partner. Without that knowledge, you're tempted to say, maybe this was an accident. How did you get so many slabs of narrative between characters, especially Lee and his love, Dolly, and the publican and his wife? I want to turn to the focus on the trial and then his time in Adelaide Gaol. What were the notable events of the trial? Alison, what would life have been like in Adelaide Gaol for people like Lee? Who are some of the characters who've also been on death row at Adelaide Gaol? Did Lee's hanging impact capital punishment in SA? If so, why, how? What should the local tourism body in Rhynie do with a book like yours? Or, indeed, other towns? On one hand, it's historical and people are drawn to "true crime" but on the other hand, is it disrespectful to the victims? What other stories are yet to be told? And might you two collaborate? 01:04:36 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Leave a Letter by Kaurna Cronin, from his Feathers album. This is the perfect song to end this episode, particularly with the mournful lyrics about thinking of lost love after death: When I dieGo leave a letter in my graveThat tells me all you never told meAnd ill write back one daySupport the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

343 - Peter Greste on Journalism and Press Freedom

Talking with Peter Greste on journalism and press freedom has been one of the highlights of producing The Adelaide Show. This esteemed journalist began his career at Channel 10 in Adelaide before travelling the world and working for Al Jazeera. It was in that role that he was sent to Egypt to cover the Christmas holiday season at a time of political upheaval and was arrested on false charges and jailed, along with two of his colleagues. He is now conducting research into the state of journalism today and its needs for the future if it is to continue playing a vital role in society; the role of shining a light on important public events and people, as well as teasing out bad dealings taking place in the shadows. Our "Fourth Estate" has been tested during this time of Covid 19, with politicians and health authorities using different methods of engaging with the media, while the media has had to reassess its "tabloid headlines at any cost" mentality as it both juggled supporting and critiquing authorities (those same authorities that have brought in bad legislation that is dangerously curbing press freedoms) with dealing with conspiracy groups and charlatans wanting to use this time of global public stress to push their own barrows and foment discord.I think it's fitting that this episode follows our round table episode that critiqued the many failings of Covid 19 media coverage and government policy, while trying to shine a light on ordinary, stable science during this period of quickly-evolving insights and developments.I hope you find the coversation intriguing, nuanced, and helpful, especially Peter's last comments about one of the books he read while in prison that seems to contain some timely wisdom for all of us: Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl (who survived the Nazi death camps and wrote this short but powerful book about finding meaning in life as a result).As an aside, that book, along with 400 Weeks by Oliver Burkeman, have been my summer reading books and prompted me to remove all social media apps from my phone. It's been liberating, and it led to my Musical Pilgrimage song choice. - Steve The SA Drink Of The Week this week is the 2018 Durif by Gledhill Vignorerons (it's not quite released yet but we got an advance tasting). And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we finish off with Shining Light by David Robinson. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Peter Greste on journalism and press freedom00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show includes a snippet from Peter Greste's first press conference upon returning to Australia after being freed from prison in Egypt. 00:07:14 SA Drink Of The Week This week's SA Drink Of The Week is the 2018 Gledhill Vignerons Durif, made by The Adelaide Show's occasional winemaker co-presenter, John Gledhill. It's not available publicly just yet, but contact Steve if you'd like to get some of this wine which is a bargain at $30 per bottle. 00:09:26 Peter Greste At the Oz Asia festival last year, I had the pleasure of bumping into Australian journalist, Peter Greste. If that name is familiar to you, it's because Peter was jailed in Egypt for 400 days, having gone to the country shortly before Christmas in 2013, to cover end of year festivites for Aj Jazeera's english language channel. Peter and his colleagues were arrested and charged with airing false news and aiding the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned organisation in Egypt. In recent times, Peter has been working for the University of Queensland, undertaking a research project involving journalism and press freedom. Peter, welcome to The Adelaide Show. Peter, I was forlorn when chatting with you at Oz Asia because the fourth estate is something I hold (or have held) in high regard, and I'm quite angry at the way it is being cheapened by news outlets, and played by unscrupulous political leaders. I was forlon because there wasn't a link that made you a valid guest on a podcast that puts South Australian passion on centre stage. And then you reminded me that you worked here as a journo. Take us through that time? What was the calibre of stories covered back then? I've started using the Al Jazeera app. It's like proper news. How does our news diet compare to European or African diets, eg, we seem to lead with car crashes, robberies, or burst water drains, along with embarrassing gaffes by pollies. Detention - Loss of freedom - I would expect waves of despair - your thoughts on our freedom fighers Protecting sources Al Jazeera The twisting of words Does the press deserve its freedom Do we know real journalism and was there ever new journalism I protested 24-hour news cycle in late 80s - is it terrible Meditation How did you find resiliance, not knowing an end date - just like people in the world wars or facing covid Nuance - govt has cracked down badly against freedoms, are we now facing Boy Cried Wolf when it's trying to crack down for public safety It's weird, the press thing. It really is rich people having a business in which they send employees out wielding sticks, or you have govt broadcasters. Why do I need to answer questions from Mr Murdoch's employees? I now don't consume much news. How dangerous is that I find shows like The Bugle and The News Quiz on BBC 01:22:35 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Shining Light by David Robinson.

342 - Heave away, haul away, bound for SA in 2022

What does South Australia have in store for 2022? Well, primarily, this will be determined by what we've done in 2021, along with new policies and practices we're putting in place. To give us some clarity, three regular contributors to The Adelaide Show Podcast, have put up their hands to have their say: David Olney Nigel Dobson Robert Godden They each bring their insights from three very different backgrounds. Instead of ONE SA Drink Of The Week this week, each of our panelists will share their own. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we finish off with a timely song from our archives. And in case you missed it, we just won Silver for Best Interview Podcast at the Australian Podcast Awards. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page   Running Sheet: Let's talk about sex, baby00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:24 SA Drink Of The Week This week, there are four. David brought Mojo Ginger Kombucha Robert brought Apple and Cranberry Fine White tea, made by himself at The Devotea Nigel and Steve both brought different gins by 78 degrees (details to come) 00:09:47 Bound for 2022 in SA with David Olney, Robert Godden, Nigel Dobson In the words of the old folk balad, Bound for South Australia, there's the lyric, heave away, haul away, and it feels like there is still much work to be done to sail safely into 2022 here in South Australia. We have a state that has done some hard yards to minimise Covid-19 cases from overrunning our hospitals but amid angry and frustrated people wanting to assert their rights against getting vaccinated or practicing communal health restrictions for the greater good, our government has yielded to various pressures (not least of which might be the upcoming election) and relaxed many protective measures. None of this has been helped by an opportunistic media, ready to pick over the carcus of truth and facts to find the juiciest tidbits to arouse passions. In short, there are many moving parts and it takes some effort to quieten down our anxieties and check our lazy thinking, to try to discern truth, even when that truth might be inconvenient. So, as we're bound for 2022, I have gathered my Adelaide Show ship mates around some South Australian drinks, to discuss the state of South Australia, especially in relation to Covid-19 and the political landscape. And the ship mates are, former co-presenter and cognitive scientist, Nigel Dobson, diability advocate and part-time political pundit, Robert Godden, and former lecturer in geopolitics, David Olney. Let's start by getting our compasses set to some sort of true north, in relation to SA's current disposition on Covid-19, Politics, and our Geopolitical status. Nigel - Covid. Robert - Politics. David - Geopolitics - are we exposed amid defence contracts, international students, etc? Now I want to work on a few of the main strands that are causing me and many people much despair about our immediate and mid-term futures: Getting straight information on Covid-19 and vaccination, preventative measures like mask wearing and hand cleaning, and how to interpret data being released daily. The notion of civic responsibility. I firmly believe we must get vaccinated for the common good and I would like to see the government step in and mandate vaccination to give our businesses cover. I saw a report into the damaging effects of media language on community confidence - terms like "there are fears ..." or "authorities are scrambling to ...". It's lazy, lazy, jingoistic journalism. What can be done? Politicians seem to not want to be the ones holding the ball when the election bell goes. Will we get good, confident leaders again? What are some things for us all to practice or think about in the New Year: Dealing with friends and family who won't vaccinate or who are completely lost to conspiracy thinking? Reacting to those people who waltz straight past all Check In and mask up notices Weighing up the risks of going to public places and events Sources of good coverage And, of course, the show took a different pathway altogether! 01:28:58 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have I Don't Think You're Lonely by Kelly Breur, from our archives.

341 - Let's Talk About Sex, Baby

The Salt 'N Pepa song, Let's Talk About Sex, Baby, could well be the theme song for this week's episode because that's exactly what we're talking about with our special guest, Wala Truscott, who is a relationship, intimacy and attraction facilitator, professional touch therapist, and The Wheel of Consent teacher. If your relationship has lost is flames of desire and attraction, Wala has some hope-giving insights to share. Instead of an SA Drink Of The Week this week, we're going to chat about some SA condiments with the team from Beerenberg Farm, to celebrate the opening of their new Farm Cafe & Dairy. In particular, Steve gets to meet THE Uncle Steve of Beerenberg Chutney fame. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we finish off with a smouldering song from 2015 by Adie Haines.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page   Running Sheet: Let's talk about sex, baby00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:04:12 SA Drink Of The Week This week, it's actually a meet and greet with some fine people from Beerenberg Farm, to mark the opening of their new Farm Cafe & Dairy. We meet Sally Paech, marketing director, and talk with two people who are "famous" for being on the labels of sought after products, namely, Uncle Steve and Nikki. 00:14:06 Wala Truscott Wala Truscott works with singles and couples who are struggling with resentment in their relationships, so they can move to a place of having open, honest and uncomfortable conversations with their partners and ultimately achieve a strengthening of their "relationship certainty" and a deepening of their sexual connection. So, in borrowing the words of Frankenfurter from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, why don't you come into this chat, and where it's all at. I'm glad you're shivering in an-tici-pation. Wala, welcome to The Adelaide Show. Before get in too deep, is the presence of absence of anticipation a good "canary in the coalmine" when it comes to measuring the sensual or intimate health of a relationship? I noted that you shared on LinkedIn that you were looking forward to this chat so that we could explore why relationships either deepen or dwindle. So let's start there because I just heard a respected social scientist say on a podcast recently (I think it was Sam Harris's Making Sense podcast, but it could have been Paul Bloom on the Very Bad Wizards podcast), that if you counted the number of times a married couple has sex in their first year of marriage, you can then start counting down from that with every subsequent year for the rest of their lives and you will never reach zero. Is that what you'd call a "dwindling" relationship? Why is sex and/or intimacy so important to a relationship? We know it has physical and psychological benefits, so is there reason to be suspicious when someone says they're relationship has "moved on" from sexual relationships? As I grew up, my dad was a priest and he'd often take a text from the Bible to guide his sermons, so I'm going to follow suite BUT I'll be choosing as my text, Kiss, by Prince. Wala, I'd like you to reflect on the healthiness or otherwise of some of the statements in this song. You don't have to be beautifulTo turn me onI just need your body, babyFrom dusk 'til dawnYou don't need experienceTo turn me out Comments? Then he sings: You just leave it all up to meI'm gonna show you what it's all about This seems a bit one-sided? Or can that be a good thing? Let's continue: I just want your extra time and yourKiss Does he stumble into some gold here. Is intimacy really about "time" and "focus"? Some last quotes: You got to not talk dirty, babyIf you wanna impress me (ah)You can't be too flirty, mamaI know how to undress me, yeahI want to be your fantasyMaybe you could be mine Do people often reach for dirty talk or sexting, thinking it's a turn on, when it might not be? How would you talk about this? And finally: Women, not girls, rule my worldI said they rule my worldAct your age, mama (not your shoe size) As someone who is older and whose body shows the sign of abuse and neglect from working too much instead of being physical, there are two points here. Firstly, it's okay to find out how to be "sexy" while being old (and maybe sexy isn't the term), and secondly, do you think people's own embarrassment about their bodies saps them of the confidence and energy of seeking to reignite the flames of passion for fear that their self-repulsion might be shared by their partner? Here endeth my sermon but a friend of mine - a former priest who these days is an awesome family systems therapist, Brett Williams from Adelaide Night And Day Family Therapy - asks you to comment on this: How come in our society, is sexuality (both its understanding and its practice), controlled by organisations like the porn industry and churches, and then by the media, rather than being influenced by the education and academic world? How do you work with individuals and couples? Take us through the various tools at your disposal. What's your advice for people who are seeking or starting a relationship? And for those of us married or in long term relationships, what are some simple things we could do tonight OR some questions that could start the ball rolling? And are there any good books, movies, TV shows, etc, where either characters demonstrate healthy sexuality OR the have great insights, eg, The Love Languages/ 01:15:34 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Shut Up And Kiss Me, a song by Adie Haines, first brought to our attention in 2015, and played on our episode in which we interviewed, Samela Harris. In light of the discussion with Wala, this song is a good one to ponder, given the insights that too much dithering in the bedroom and in relationships in general can be a BIG turn off.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

340 - Hospitality In A Time Of Covid

Simone Douglas wears many hats but this time we are going to interview her as proprieter of the Duke Of Brunswick Hotel and as a representative of the Hospo Owners Collective, during this phase of trying to deliver hospitality in a time of Covid. Ultimately we discover, we need to honour the science, we need to manager our communal health, we need to nurture our economy, and perhaps the missing link has been a strong, statesperson in political leadership? That said, we also note that this is a one in 100 year event. We also drink a stunning Shiraz by Cimicky Wines from the Barossa. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Emma Knights sings There's No Beauty.

Usually, it's all very harmonious. But over much of 2021, we've seen a different side of Simone, as she has stepped up (as co-owner of the Duke Of Brunswick Hotel and as a respresentative of the Hospo Owners Collective), to help her sector advocate for what she calls more responsible and just Covid restrictions. Before we get into the guts of this discussion today, what has it been like, having to be on the front foot, trying to advocate for change against people and institutions you are normally in harmony with? I should also put in early that this podcast rests on a couple of very important principles. Firstly, we accept the world's scientific and medical consensus about this pandemic, about the measures that have been explored to constrain it (thanks to epidemiologists who know a lot more about the complexities of these things than your Facebook Armchair Experts or conservative commentators), and secondly, we feel deeply for SA Health and our politicians who are having to navigate through a once-in-100-years event but are doing so in an age of social media in which looney conspiracy theorists can make as much if not more noise than proper experts. That said, we also hold to the principle that humans are fallible and we must always have a curiosity and and open mind so as to keep reviewing evidence in light of experience and data AND we must appreciate that, as Oscar Wilde said, the truth is rarely pure and never simple. Simone, can you chart us through the journey of running a pub during Covid, noting that you've always had a strong stance of supporting community groups and performers. What's it been like for staff What's it been like with suppliers How have the different phases of government regulations affected you What would you like to see What is holding the government back Researchers from Monash University and the University of Edinburgh, just published the results of a large study. I'll quote from the Guardian story - “This systematic review and meta analysis suggests that several personal protective and social measures, including handwashing, mask wearing, and physical distancing are associated with reductions in the incidence of Covid-19,” the researchers wrote in the BMJ. They said the results highlight the need to continue mask wearing, social distancing and handwashing alongside vaccine programmes. Can you see a way for the hospitality sector to accommodate masks and distancing while remaining viable? What is your message to us?Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

339 - Eudunda 150 Not Out

Eudunda is the birthplace of one of South Australia's most famous authors, the late Colin Thiele, and this week we celebrate the Eudunda 150 celebrations with two local authors; historian, Samuel Doering, and former resident from the 1950s, Chris Stegmeyer. On the way to record this episode, we stopped in at St Hallett Wines in the Barossa Valley to taste the SA Drink Of The Week, which happens to be the 2017 St Hallett Old Block Shiraz. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Eudundan, Michaela Jenke, kicks up a storm with her song, Stop & Stare. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

We'd greatly appreciate it. And please talk about us and share our episodes on social media, it really helps build our community. Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Eudunda 150 not out 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:52 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is the 2017 St Hallett Old Block Shiraz. The tasting was held with National Cellar Door Manager for Accolade Wines, Andrew McDowell, at St Hallett Wines in the Barossa Valley, which is the site for the company's planned, multi-million-dollar Multi-Brand Wine Experience project, set to launch late in 2022. The brands to be featured will be Grant Burge, St Hallett and Rolf Binder. South Australia has long been the jewel in Australia's wine crown, but the D'Arenburg Cube threw a cat among the pigeons a few years ago, revving up interest in SA and McLaren Vale as a wine lovers destination. Andrew, you've been talking to Tourism SA while planning this new Wine Experience Destination in the Barossa. Is that D-word, DESTINATION, what it's all about? Before we get into the details, does the need to pour money into a major project like this signal that the Cellar Door Experience is lacking? You're the National Cellar Door Manager for Accolade Wines - by the way, one of your board members, Sir James Hardy has previously been a guest on The Adelaide Show (ep 298 - Sailing with Sir James Hardy) - what makes a cellar door worth visiting? Now, back to your new project. It's going to be quite big, spanning more than 600 square metres, and will have spaces carved out to create vaults for eating and drinking and different experiences. We'll put some images in the show notes. Andrew, if you could give us a virtual, audio tour of the space, what will we experience inside and, most importantly, can you explain what it means when the media release says the design's been modelled on contemporary Australian vernacular? I mentioned The Cube earlier, which is dashing and garish from the outside, but your project could easily be mistaken as just another hall from the outside - the inside is amazing - but the outside seems very muted. Has that been deliberate? For the gastronomic experience you'd like people to have at your new venue, there's been mention made that you want others to collaborate with you. What does that mean? This is likely to attract people wanting to work in tourism and hospitality. Can we get your 2-3 takeaway points for being good at customer service in a tourism entity? What would make you say, wow, this person is a star and I want to hire them? Finally, tell me honestly, you are at cellar door and you look up and you see two groups approaching. The first group is half a dozen 20-somethings, guys and gals, being loud with plenty of swagger, and then you look up and see a small group of older, very well-to-do people walking towards the cellar door with their heads tilted back as they seem to look down their noses at everything around them. What goes through your mind? 00:22:54 Samuel Doering and Chris Stegmeyer The town of Eudunda, just over 100km northeast of Adelaide, is turning 150 this year. Samuel Doering, chair of the Eudunda 150 sub-committee, invited The Adelaide Show to shine a light on what's happening and you wouldn't read about it but we've come up with two books to explore. The first is The Diary of Emilie Appelt: Eudundan. German. Lutheran. Woman. 1904-1914, which has been edited by Samuel himself. And the other book is Christiaan Stegmeyer - My Story by our other guest, Chris Stegmeyer, who was a resident in town in the 1950s. The Diary of Emilie Appelt While in Eudunda, Steve was also asked to be a judge for the Eudunda Art Prize, and The Adelaide Show Podcast ended up sponsoring a Commendation Prize because there were too many good works! Fellow judges included Peter Goers from ABC Adelaide, and cartoonist, Jed Dunstan, from the Stock Journal. Let's start by getting a sense of your histories with Eudunda. Chris, if we go with age before beauty, let's start with you and your links with Eudunda? Samuel, how long have you lived here? You are a historian, among other things. Has growing up in Eudunda had much to do with that life path? How did Emilie Appelt come into your life? Can you give us a taste of Emilie's experience of Eudunda; arriving when there were only about half a dozen houses? How is this town similar to and different from other SA country towns? Who are some of the legends? And do you know how Peep Hill got it's name? It sounds rather risque. Why should we visit? 01:04:09 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have Eudundan country music legend, Michaela Jenke, with her new song, Stop & Stare. It's been four years between drinks, when it comes to original songs from Jenke. She says writing doesn't come that easily to her but this song was off and running after she'd penned the first lines:‘Been livin’ in a circus. Been livin’ on dreams, and I’m the master of the ring’.Michaela has caught the eyes and ears of the country music scene in Australia but still graciously took time to send us her song to play, while she was on her honeymoon. There's got to be a country song in that, somewhere!This track is about self-empowerment and it has plenty of kick, perhaps just like the original Eudundans.

338 - Sugar vs Dr James Muecke

They say a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down but maybe they should say it brings us closer to diabetes. Our special guest in this episode is former Australian Of The Year and eye specialist, Dr James Muecke, who is on the warpath against sugar because he's seen what it's done to his patients, including instantaneous blindness. In the SA Drink Of The Week, we have a shot or two of Baristador B70 espresso coffee. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Susan Lily returns with her whiskey the way James Muecke would approve!

It comes in every type of food we can imagine and in our brains, sugar stimulates the “feel-good” chemical dopamine, which scientists think has evolutionary roots (find a source of sugar in hunter-gatherer days and you have a source of energy that will aid survival. However, the 2020 Australian of the Year, ophthalmologist James Muecke, says in our society, sugar is a shortcut to diabetes and the next stop after that is blindness. Sight For All James, I feel bad that we're not going to have time to delve into your wonderful legacy of work as an opthamologist all around the world, doing what you could to save and restore sight. So could we start with one of your most profound memories of your work in that field, whether that was in Australia or overseas? Hearing stories like that makes my blood boil because you represent a body of people who dedicated years to learning within the discipline of medical science but most of the noise we get on social media these days is all about how that science is a fraud. Have you developed any coping mechanisms for when you encounter the torrent of half-baked intuitions, psuedo science, and snake oil being touted by these shrill alarmists? I saw you speak recently at a conference of doctors and you stunned us with your opening story of a patient of yours who woke up one day, blind. Can you share that story now because that puts the seriousness of our sugar discussion into perspective. How do we measure the impact sugar consumption is having on our bodies. Are there particular signs that we doing it wrong? Let's talk about the 5 As of sugar. We have some questions about interacting with sugar from listeners but as I look at them, they are largely about sugar itself, whereas you had some good coverage in the media recently about turning the focus around to eat like it's the 1970s. I want to get to the "sugar wrestle" but let's start on the positive step about how we should be approaching food. I want to turn to our 11yo voiceover artist, Caitlin, who has contributed the following questions, completely unprompted.How much sugar a day is good for a human? In other words, should we be having no sugar or a bit of sugar a day?Is the sugar in fruits and sweets the same and if it is, why do fruits have sugar?And how much sugar does it take to gain weight? Two other listeners have asked similar questions:Monique Miller would like to know your opinion on artificial sweeteners and the “sugar free” craze too. Should we cut back on sweet altogether? Are they an ok alternative?And Chris Glenn from Japan asks, what do you suggest as Sugar alternatives because we've been using one made from beets? Another listener, Rick Carter, asks, what do you think about SA Health funded Sausage sizzles ... and The Premier promoting Krispy Kremes. As our household moves towards eating whole foods and reducing sugar, I commented recently to my wife that our days start strongly (intermittent fasting, whole meats and veg and dairy and nuts for lunch/dinner), but then the ship of virtue crashes into the reef of carbs around 9pm when crisps or ice cream or chocolate or all three start their siren calls. Would you think that isolating our weaknesses and strengthening them up, is a fast and reliable way for shoring up the ship, as it were? Should sugar be a proclaimed substance like tobacco or alcohol and only be sold through specific stores AND not to minors? Do we build "slack" into our systems if we're doing most things right, so much so that our bodies can cope more readily with some lopsided eating either as "treats" or during times of unexpected bursts of stress or abnormal situations?Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

A Minnie History Of Andamooka

Not many South Australians have visited Andamooka, way up in the outback. But, as it turns out, people who have grown up in the town have also missed a lot of their history, if the first female opal miner, Minnie Berrington, is anything to go by. Lara Lukich joins us to dig into Andamooka's history. In the SA Drink Of The Week, we have a quick sip of 2016 DiGiorgio Sparkling Merlot, from Coonawarra. And in the Musical Pilgrimage, Dino Jag returns with a Sam Cooke cover. Wow! You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

While big companies tried their hands at mining opal in the area, the nature of the opal fields is such that they're best suited to independent miners, trying their luck. In the mix of this history was a woman, Minnie Berrington, who left clerical work in England in 1926 to become the postmistress and first female opal miner in the town. Lara Lukich (with Katalin Wilby) has a project to capture the life and work of Minnie B, through the company, Cinematica Films, and ahead of this weekend's Andamooka Opal Festival, she's joining us to shine some light on this jewel in South Australia's crown. Let's get the lay of the land sorted first. How far are you from Adelaide and surrounding landmarks? What do you see when you first arrive? What would Minnie Berrington have seen and experienced? What captured your imaginations about Minnie? (The Sand That Ate The Sea) How do the people of Andamooka govern themselves? Is there something we can learn? Is mining still central to life in the town? And what about art? I see there is an Andamooka Tiger on display as part of this weekend's Andamooka Opal Festival. Is this a sign of a healthy artistic element in town? Us westerners value opals for their monetary worth. Is that just because they're pretty? Or is there something intrinsincly valuable about them, for example, do you have any idea how they have been thought about by the traditional owners of the land? Tell us about the weekend's event AND the raffle we can all join. 01:18:52 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, Dino Jag returns with a soulful version of the Sam Cooke classic, A Change Is Gonna Come.

336 - I wouldn't be a baker if I couldn't eat the cakes

We like to cook up a delicious serving of thought and insight and this week, you get a triple helping! Oh, and the reference to the title of the show this week will become obvious but if you can't wait, one guest talks about baking cakes and another guest talks about CJ Dennis who wrote a fun poem for kids called, The Baker. Now, to our aural menu this week: Firstly, in the SA Drink Of The Week, we taste Varci tonics. Some delicious aromatic drinks that go well with gin and/or soda. Secondly, Caroline Rowe introduces us to her philosophy and tips for cooking for one and for finding our kitchen mojo. Thirdly, in the Musical Pilgrimage, Lisa Harper Campbell and Steven Oppes take us into the poetry zone, as they join us to talk about CJ Dennis ahead of their premier of the play, Of Auburn, at the Auburn French Festival this weekend.

We speak with the director, Lisa Harper Campbell, and writer, Steven Oppes about this play which mines the life and poetry of CJ Dennis, who was born in Auburn, and interweaves that with the life of a lesser-known local, Madge Yeatman (volunteer nurse in the Great War). We also hear a short excerpt of audio from the play, featuring some original music by the band, Minnie Little, some words written by CJ Dennis, and some aural landscape from the production. Oh, and here's the full poem, The Baker, by CJ Dennis, to wrap things up: I’d like to be a baker, and come when morning breaks,Calling out, “Beeay-ko!” (that’s the sound he makes) —Riding in a rattle-cart that jogs and jolts and shakes,Selling all the sweetest things a baker ever bakes,Currant-buns and brandy-snaps, pastry all in flakes;But I wouldn’t be a baker if . . . .I couldn’t eat the cakes.

335 - What is POTS?

Do you know what POTS is? If not, consider yourself lucky. POTS is a syndrome that affects women of child-bearing age but can be experienced by both men and women of any age. We'll be chatting with Claire Seeley, founder and director of the Australian POTS Foundation to learn more about the syndrome, its diagnosis, and its treatment. The SA Drink Of The Week is St Hallett's Blackwells Shiraz. And in the musical pilgrimage we have a track from Ben and Janna Romeo.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page   Running Sheet: What is POTS?00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:52 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is 2018 St Hallett's Blackwells Shiraz. 00:08:46 Claire Seeley It was only the last few days that I discovered the existence of a syndrome known as POTS. And the irony is, there could be people among us who are suffering from it without knowing it exists, either. This is the dilemma created by an syndrome that impacts the automatic nervous system in a range of ways, making it difficult to diagnose. What's more, we now are seeing people with post acute Covid being very suseptiable to POTS. Our guest tonight, Claire Seeley, discovered she had POTS, shortly after a viral infection and has not only been living with it ever since, but she's been working with fellow sufferers in her role as a Clinical Nurse Consultant, under the supervision of Associate Professor Dennis Lau (Cardiologist/Electrophysiologist) at Adelaide University. Welcome to The Adelaide Show. Australian POTS Foundation We're going to talk about what POTS is, your research into it, your work in with patients, and the Australian POTS Foundation, but first, if someone I know was suffering from a serious onset of POTS,  what sort of signs would I notice? What did you experience? Let's get into the detail. What do we know about POTS (and how do you pronounce all the words) You mentioned in some of your notes that, historically, POTS has been much maligned by the medical profession. Any idea why? It is related to how complex it must be to diagnose? Who is most at risk? What outcomes should people expect to experience after being diagnosed with POTS? In other words, can it be treated successfully? Can you tell us more about your work at Adelaide University. I think you said you are in one of the primary centres for treatment of Autonomic Cardiac Disorders in Australia. The condition is highly associated with another poorly recognized condition could hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome which affects the collagen in the connective tissue. Why? Listener, Lisa, has a question: She says her mum has Bradi Tachi Cardia, a heart condition. Unsure if related to POTS. Apparently it leads to her heart rate changing from fast to slow and vice versa. She said it would be good to know its common name. There has been a surge in presentations and diagnosis of POTS in people post acute Covid-19.  To the point that there is now a drive for increased funding to understand the impact and cause of this condition. What is your research focussing on? Do you need volunteers? You have started a Foundation, tell us more about it. Finally, I saw you recently at the birthday celebration for Sir Frank Seeley, your father-in-law. We just dressed up and went and feasted and chatted and headed home. Did POTS impact your approach to being at that night? 01:10:30 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we hear from Claire Seeley's son-in-law and daughter, Ben and Janna Romeo, with a song called, Yellow Brick Road.

333 - John Schumann on protest songs in times like these

John Schumann of Redgum fame joins us to reflect on the role of protest songs, especially in times like these, given that protest songs are often rooted in a particular time and place. The SA Drink Of The Week is from Andrew Pike in the Clare Valley And in the musical pilgrimage we have a track from John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page   Running Sheet: John Schumann on protest songs in times like these00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:04:20 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is 2015 Pikes The Merle Riesling, tasting with Andrew Pike. 00:11:20 John Schumann In 2017, John Schumann teamed up with Shane Howard to co-write a modern protest song, Times Like These. Apart from the sense of frustration in the lyrics about how previously hard won gains are disappearing by degrees, there's a haunting line in it that has spooked me, given that I'm now in my second decade as a marketer who teaches businesses how to use social media: From Dondale to Manus Island detentionPeople are drowning in a sea of inattention This society is so fraught with and saturated by things of distraction, I wonder if protest songs are ever going to have potency ever again. So, I've asked John Schumann to reflect on this with me. John, I want to trawl back through some of your protest songs produced with Redgum, and get your reflections on other protest songs of note, but let's start with an experience I had this morning, when I went to YouTube to relisten to TImes Like These. They say that protest songs thrive within a social and temporal context (time and place), that's what gives them meaning and power, so how's this. Your song was not able to play until I'd been subjected to a cheery ad for Target, coaxing me to buy some glittering toys, and then a health insurance ad wooing me to switch to them with the offer of waiving waiting times for claiming extras. I think I got my daily allowance of irony. Could Bob Dylan's Blowing In The Wind get cut through in Times Like These? And when are Times Like These NOT times like these. For example, we hear of people protesting the invention of the printing press, saying books will wear out our brains, we hear of ancient Roman  writers lamenting "today's youth", and then we hear songs from back in the 70s like Winter In America by Gil Scott-Heron with lyrics like: Seem like winter in AmericaAnd ain't nobody fighting,Because nobody knows what to save Are all times as good or as bad as all other times, which begs the question, do we need protest songs at all - or do they give us something to occupy ourselves with, like throwing a bone to a dog? You and I both saw a show at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival recently, The Art Of Protest, starring Vince Jones. My feeling at the time as a Vince Jones fan, was that there was a dissonance between Jone's smooth and polished voice and exquisite jazz accompaniment, and the heart-rending nature of some of the protest songs he played. Are there some key ingredients for a protest song to work, eg, the style of voice and music, as much as the content? There was nuance in the name of Jones' show - the Art Of Protest. Art suggests that artists CHOOSE to do a protest song. Am I just naive to think that "real" protests songs are songs that emerge because there is NO OTHER CHOICE, vs making a decision to do something from the protest genre just like a pop genre? Should there be a price paid by singing or writing protest songs? Can you take us through the chemistry and the road map that led you and Redgum to write and produce some pretty bitter and frustrated songs? What did you ever hope to achieve with any of your songs that might be classed protest songs, such as I Was Only 19? And do you start with an agenda, or do you just have something to say and let the cards fall where they may? In a recent episode of Blind Insights with David Olney, they quoted a former PM of Australia saying: We will tolerate dissent, as long as it is ineffective. Does that wind you, to hear that? Does that make the protest enterprise futile? Most important protest songs? Advice to any young Redgums today? 01:03:56 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a fitting song from John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew, featuring Shane Howard, called Times Like These.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

He notes that Frayne helps us see, almost for the first time, what it is that has been seen many times before. It is an act of revelation. My hope, in this interview is to shed some light, on local photographer and artist, Alex Frayne, so that those of us who have seen his work, can have the artist revealed. Landscapes of South Australia on Wakefield Press Alex Frayne Facebook Page Alex, this chat will be more about themes rather than be based upon specific questions. There is much we can dwell upon and I expect that every stop along the way has great potential for unending conversation. But I’d like to start with the art and/or discipline of “seeing” the familiar. And perhaps your image, Maslin Beach, is a good start for undressing this topic because I’ve just come back from there, but your lens has shown that coastline in its full morning glory – autumnal tones, some water, some vegetation – it was rich and lavish and is right under our noses. How do you decide where to stop and shoot. You have revealed the autumnal palate in many of your shots – a palate I have been hitherto unaware of. Take us through your journey of seeing light – from your time in England, to your time here in South Australia. The outback inspires many – I’ve just returned from it – but you talk about its allure in terms of photographic nothingness – negative space. What do you mean and how does that affect your framing? You are so masterful with your work but you also admit the Mallee has not been conquered yet. What is the challenge? You have a film making background and I know you argue that film makers prefer night lighting. Isn’t that the bain of photography, due to grain? What’s the allure and is there such as thing as perfect black? How do you choose between portrait, landscape, or square? And what determines the depth of an image? Landscape photography, indeed, art itself, requires patience from three parties – the artist, the audience, and the patron, benefactor, or client who funds it. Let’s look at each one. The artist – how do you summon the focus to have patience? And does that mean returning to a location numerous times? And how long before you admit defeat? The audience – a coffee table book demands a coffee table and time to be spent at one. Who is the audience? How do we become your audience? And are there less of us due to us being glued to mobile phones? The patron. In this case, Wakefield Press. They need patience for the momentum to build, do they not? What gets you that sort of support? In fact, you quit film making because photography was more lucrative. That surprises me. Can you explain? My favourite shot from you book is The Long Dark. An Ampol service station at night, in Wistow. We see it and we see the road disappear into pitch black. That leads to introspection. Is that what you want? There was also some fear in that photo. You say film makers still use the aussie landscape to inspire fear – you see it for revelation. Wy the difference? Isn’t it just darkness, ANYWHERE, that inspires fear? Light Visions, Dark Intervals – tell us about this Now, pitch the book. 01:34:46 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a fitting song from Magic Tortoise, entitled, Wild. Follow Magic Tortoise on Facebook. Magic Tortoise performs quirky, atmospheric, alt-folk music and they were brought to our attention by band member, Tim Seeley, whom Steve met last week on Hamilton Island (a perfect tortoise location, maybe).

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page   Running Sheet: We're all going on an SA holiday 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:02:01 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is 2016 Reilly's Clare Valley Shiraz. 00:06:09 Rodney Harrex I grew up in Adelaide in the 70s and one of the most popular things to do was going for a Sunday afternoon drive through the Adelaide Hills or maybe down to Victor. As time progressed to the 90s and naughties, cheap flights led to the travel bug luring many of us interstate and overseas, and then suddenly the Covid pandemic slammed our borders shut. Hence, today, SA Tourism's current slogan is Holiday Here, and those such quaint, Sunday arvo drives have now evolved into Shorts, or Getaways, or visits to the Regions, with the expectation being that we now stay overnight and go cellar door hopping, kayaking, and rediscovering our dreamy coastal beaches. To take us back to this future, we have the SA Tourism Commission's CEO, Rodney Harrex. Rod, where you grew up, was there a culture of Sunday afternoon drives? Or some other "tourism light" routine? We're going to be talking a lot about getting South Aussies to travel around SA, but I'd like to start by comparing that challenge to the one you faced at Tourism Australia, where you were General Manager, UK and Northern Europe, and working hard to attract overseas visitors to Australia? What prompted me to seek you out for this chat was my desire to apologise to the SATC publicly. I'd always harboured a thought that people working in a nice office in the city, in a beautiful state, with some pretty passionate tourism operators, it would be easy to coast on the coat tails of decades of momentum, etc. Then we had the bushfires over summer 2019/2020, followed by the Covid pandemic, and then, like a phoenix arising from the ashes, I saw some very smart and very effective marketing to start stimulating tourism activity, firstly in fire-affected areas, and then statewide and within the CBD. Can you share your memories of that journey from your perspective? There are a couple of tourism campaigns I'd like to throw some extra light on. The first is #bookthemout. This was the push to aid bushfire recovery. It seemed to tap a nerve with South Aussies who all felt gutted by the fires on behalf of those affected. Was that insight based on instinct or did you run some consumer research? The other was the work on the travel vouchers. I was lucky enough to have a front row seat for the recent round of vouchers, and saw the flood of bookings that followed. Where did this idea come from and what are you hoping to achieve? There's always a risk, when businesses drop prices or give things away, that they train consumers to expect such deals into the future. Are there safeguards in the voucher scheme to avoid this OR is it still an emergency situation and you're breaking the glass to stimulate visitation? I think I can see one silver lining to Covid. Many operators have moved quickly to get touchless bookings and checkins. That's got to be healthy for the future. Yes? I hinted at some differences between Sunday afternoon drives and the messaging of the Holiday Here campaign. Can you define the differences more clearly and perhaps outline some of the economic impact of the push to have us stay overnight vs the day trip? I have a confession to make. I recently had a week-long staycation at Moana and had some fun going around to different places with my daughter. But it's only while researching for this interview that I looked at the excellent itineraries and "top 5" lists, that would have helped me come up with some even better things to do. How odd am I? Or is there an obstinant South Aussie who thinks they know everything? Who is the "south aussie" traveller who makes it worth your while to target because they drive the biggest spend? How important are grey nomads? I was recently in Burra, and the place was alive with older people and I heard talk that towns that develop dumping stations, attract nomads by the hundreds. However, I hear other people say they tend to buy a packet of biscuits from the local IGA, some instant coffee, and they make their own lunches. You mentioned that caravan bookings are up. What's driving that? At the Visitor Information Centre state conference, after you'd mentioned the demand for caravans, I made a joke about having a few remaining days left of being able to drive at the speed limit before the next round of vans appeared - and it went down like a led ballon. How important are caravans but equally is there a case for teaching slower vehicles to routinely let other traffic past them? If I'm a small operator and I see other operators featured on the SA Tourism site, what can I do to muscle in on the action. For example, is that out of the reach of a small, b&b operator in Robe? 00:38:26 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a fitting song from John O'Dea, entitled, Parachilna Sunset.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

329 - Til Divorce Us Do Part

Does separation and divorce need to be expensive and fraught with bitterness?

328 - No Recipe Cooking For Busy People

Too busy too cook? Money too tight to eat out? The No Recipe Cookbook might be just what you need. We have its author, Dr Samantha Pillay joining us to help us change habits and perceptions and take control of what goes into our bodies. Plus, the musical, The Wedding Singer, is opening in Adelaide soon, so we'll talk to someone who knows about balancing busyness with eating well, Nadia Komazec. She's playing Holly in the show and has much experience in the gruelling lifestyle of doing back to back musical theatre, so we'll get her tips and hear a bit more about this show. The SA Drink Of The Week is not alcoholic! It's from Samantha's garden!

As a result, I have hardly cooked a meal from scratch since January. It is now March 28 at the time of recording, and only tonight am I about to don my apron and get back into the kitchen. I've missed cooking, and I've been disappointed by my absence from the kitchen but I have had to apply triage in my life to survive these few months of overload. This is why I am very keen to have an extended conversation with our special guest, Dr Samantha Pillay. Not only is she a surgeon, a public speaker, a single mum, and the director of Continence Matters, she is the author of The No Recipe Cookbook. Welcome to the podcast. Did this book emerge from you DESPITE your busyness or BECAUSE of it? We are recording our interview on a Sunday afternoon. Tell me, what is Sunday usually like in your house? Why "no recipe"? Is there something about the recipe format that's broken? Another obstacle to being self-sufficient in the kitchen is not having ingredients which means, shopping. And during my period of overload, that's what often made me resort to ordering in. I might have had time to shop OR cook but not both. What's your reaction when hearing this? You start with evening meal ideas. That's ingenious. Tidy cooking - less dishes, think about the order of using utensils and dishes (even plates). Plus, clean up as you go. Buy the book online everywhere, ask at your local bookstore, or visit her website: The No Recipe Cookbook 01:11:47 Nadia Komazec The Wedding Singer is coming to Her Majesty's Theatre in April and local "triple threat", Nadia Komazec, is in the cast and joins us to give us a peep behind the scenes. Nadia, before delving into your Adelaide upbringing and your role in The Wedding Singer, I have an important question that marries with the theme of this episode - which is about mindfully taking control of our cooking. When you're flat out in musical rehearsals and then during a run in which you'll have matinees and late nights, how do you stay in control of the food you eat to keep your body and voice in top shape? Whereabouts in Adelaide were you born, and what are your childhood memories of life here? How much as your life journey been shaped the the fact that your mother was running the iconic Adelaide dance school, Barbara Jayne Dance Centre in Norwood? If she'd been running an accounting office, would you have become a bean counter? You left Adelaide at 17 to be in Phantom Of The Opera. I saw it in New York in January last year, just before Covid, and I must say, it was like a musical that had 2-3 interesting songs and then a lot of "busy work". Are you allowed to speak frankly about it now? My recollection of The Wedding Singer movie with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, was that it was a comedy with some songs along the way. How much does that focus shift with the stage musical version? Who do you play? What should we look forward to the most? 01:25:29 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a new release from Dino Jag, Sweet Summer Smile. Dino recorded the vocals in the US, just before Covid went crazy, in the same studio where other stars have recorded songs, like the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, and Prince.

327 - Blinky Bill Is On A Podcast

Blinky Bill Is On The Loose ... This week, we use the Fringe show, Blinky Bill Is On The Loose, as a reason to revisit the wonderful Koala character created by Dorothy Wall. Michael Mills (who wrote the songs and oversaw Musical Direction), Chloe Bremner (who performed in the show and on the soundtrack), and Professor Chris Daniels (who captured the vision and decided this was a worthy project for Koala Life to support), all join Steve for a wonderful discussion under the gum trees and next to a cafe at Adelaide Botanic Garden. We also talk to Dorothy Wall's granddaughter, Janet Badgery, about her impressions of her iconic grandma. And we talk to Robyn Moore, the dynamic voiceover maestro who created Blinky Bill's voice for the 1990s animations and has since maintained her connection to the legacy. The SA Drink Of The Week is Eight At The Gate 2016 Shiraz Cabernet. And in the musical pilgrimage we have a song from the musical, itself.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: Blinky Bill Is On A Podcast 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:03:16 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is a 2016 Eight At The Gate Shiraz Cabernet. 00:06:30 Blinky Bill Is On The Loose This is the feature interview of the podcast with Michael Mills (who wrote the songs and oversaw Musical Direction), Chloe Bremner (who performed in the show and on the soundtrack), and Professor Chris Daniels (who captured the vision and decided this was a worthy project for Koala Life to support). You can listen to a buy the songs from Blinky Bill Is On The Loose here. The theatre production was a major production by Kobugs, an offshot of Michael Eustice's Theatre Bugs. 00:43:31 Janet Badgery Most of us have grown up, having been read stories by our parents and grandparents. However, not many of us can say that our grandma was not only reading us a story she wrote herself, but a story that was read by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of kids across Australia over many generations. I talk, of course, about Dorothy Wall's granddaughter, Janet Badgery. Janet, was was your first realisation that there was more to Dorothy Wall than "just being your grandmother"? Did you ever talk about Blinky Bill with her and, if so, how did such conversations come up? Why do you think it became so popular? Did your proximity to Blinky Bill make you popular at school with students and teachers? If you had to identify with one of the characters, who would it be? What did Dorothy think of the 1990s' animation work and Robyn Moore's voicing of Blinky Bill? There is an old-fashioned sense about Blinky Bill. Did Dorothy ever yearn to modernise the look and feel or was there something about that 1930s artwork style that was bound into it's DNA? And what did you enjoy most about Blinky Bill Is On The Loose? 00:53:34 Robyn Moore aka Blinky Bill There aren't many people living in Australia who've never heard Robyn Moore's voice. It's been everywhere. But one of the most endearing and enduring roles she's ever voiced has been that of Blinky Bill. We'll hear how she came to be charged with the responsibility of bringing life to the voice of this iconic Aussie, along with his female friends. How did you become so enmeshed in Blinky's life?

Auditions strike fear into the hearts of many, not just actors.

Michelle Nightingale and Alicia Zorkovic will take us behind the curtain to the world of pre-acting, known as auditions. The SA Drink Of The Week is a Vagrant Wines Cabernet Shiraz. And in the musical pilgrimage we have a new song from J-MILLA (who's become a favourite of our podcast). He was in town over the weekend at the Adelaide Festival and we have his new song, Thang 4 You. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

In this episode, we have two theatre professionals who run a theatre company focussed on training actors to revel in the activity of auditions. Michelle Nightingale and Alicia Zorkovic run Wings 2 Fly Theatre company and tonight they'll take us behind the curtain to the world of pre-acting, known as auditions. Alicia, I first met you in the role of Kyra in Skylight at Holden Street Theatre. What's it like performing on stage when you are also an acting teacher? Does it add pressure that you need to "practice what you preach"? Are you nervous if students come to see you, or does it give you new life? Michelle, many listeners will know you as the weather presenter from ABC TV but you've been in many things on stage and TV, including McLeod's daughters. What role did you play? Was it hard to get into McLeod's? How did your paths cross? I have a lot of questions about acting and most of them were devised by my 10yo daughter, Caitlin, who is the budding actor in the household. What are you looking for in an actor or theatre person? How do you pick people in an audition? Why do we need auditions - they seem cruel? What is the best way to prepare for an audition? How do you tell people they succeeded? How do you tell people they failed? In the Wizard Of Oz Arena Spectacular, they only contacted the successful ones. What should you wear? What pieces work best? 01:26:02 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song from J-MILLA, called Thang 4 You. As he steps into the studio to record his debut EP titled ‘Propah Good’, J-MILLA goes off-script bringing his A-game fun game to ‘thang4me’It’s Hip-Hop gone POP and stacked full of joy about the fact his gurrrrrl - the love of his life - loves him back as much- has done since they first met at High School – and - is a super-hot drop-dead stunner!‘thang4me’ comes with auto-tune, melodies, reverb and a pulsating hook that beats like a heart.“This is a new direction in my music. I had a lot of fun with it and it’s something my dancers and the crowd can vibe with. I wanted a song that the festival crowd could bounce with me - so I challenged myself and did something different from my usual rap style.  I’m really happy with it and can’t wait to take it to the next festival stage”,says J-MILLA.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

325 - Are we there yet? Fringe in a time of Covid

South Australia is poised for another Fringe season with most interstate artists making it across the border before more snap closures due to Covid. We meet one of those artists in this episode, Charles Firth from The Chaser. We also chat with someone who is pushing beyond her borders of security, Dr Gill Hicks. She is giving it all in her Fringe show. And we share a rare recording of Professor Sebastian Longsword, from The MBA School Of MBA Credentials, being interviewed on Radio Adelaide, amid and audience of highly educated listeners.

See how and why he paired it with Poke The Box, by Seth Godin. 00:09:51 Charles Firth Charles Firth is back in Adelaide with a Fringe show about conspiracy theories related to the Pandemic. You'll know Charles from The Chaser and also from episode 322 of The Adelaide Show. But for today's interview, Steve asks about the interstate artist experience of heading to SA when their home states are falling in and out of lockdown, along with whether or not to bring your conspiracy-loving friends along to the show. Here's the link to The Anti-Expert's Guide To The Pandemic 00:25:10 Dr Gill Hicks Dr Gill Hicks is an inspiration. She was the last survivor rescued from the 2005 London Bombings and through the injuries sustained, lost both her legs. Somehow, that experience of pain and near-death, has shaped her deeply and helped her connect with some truths and insights that are all too easy for the rest of us to see as we skim across life in busyness and routine. In this interview, Steve asks her about her show and we get a taste of her life-affirming sense of humour.

Roger and the Albatross, is a South Australian brother/sister duo, Matthew and Alice Barker. They write, sing, play and dance their originally written, harmonious folk songs that tell stories of love, food, lemons and soap. They don’t like to take themselves (or life) too seriously and enjoy playing pubs and festivals. You'll often see them share the stage with the talented Ben Roberts from Ukulele Death Squad.

323 - A South Australia Day

It’s the 26th of January and amid much reflection on Australia's history and South Australia’s history, it became clear that we’ve had one omission throughout this community project known as The Adelaide Show. Even though our full theme song about Adelaide acknowledges the Kaurna people, we have never done an acknowledgement of country at the start of our episodes. That changes today. Caitlin Davis, one of our voiceover angels, has recorded it for us and all future episodes will begin with it. In today’s episode, we have slice of what a South Australia Day looks like. In the SA Drink Of The Week, we taste Green Ant Gin produced by Something Wild, an Indigenous-owned company supplying Indigenous produce. With the Adelaide Fringe upon us, we hear Steve Davis interviewed by local media legend, Mark Aiston, about Steve's upcoming one-man show, A Lunchtime MBA. Please do something different this Fringe; take a slightly extended lunch break and hop into Treasury 1860 for an hour of laughter based on business principles. Oh, and you'll leave with an MBA certificate! Then we'll hear a little about the story of the Prairie Hotel, right up in the Flinders Ranges at Parachilna. Steve had a chance to sit down with Jane Fargher to get the story of the pub that stretches decades in a landscape that reflects millions of years of change. We also had an interview with Glenn Shorrock, no, not that one, the one from Sterlows Sheds and Structures at Stirling North, Port Augusta. Glenn's a dynamic bloke who's creating a new construction initiative in the region, as well as in Adelaide. However, dust got in the way. More details in the show. And thanks to fellow podcaster, John Murch of the Radionotes Podcast, we've been introduced to Matt Cahill from local band, Evoletah, and we get to hear a new song from them.

322 - The 2020 Adelaide Show Podcast Christmas Stocking

In this week's episode of The Adelaide Show, we are rustling through our present cupboard and serving up some audio treats to see you through the festive period. To kick things off for our audio Christmas stocking, in the SA Drink Of The Week, we chat with Australia's most trusted Sparkling Winemakers, Trina Smith, who has just launched a stunning, SA-based premium vintage sparkling wine, Jacob. Then we have three goodies. Firstly, Charles Firth joins us. Charles is a founder of The Chaser - that hilarious comedy team that breathed new life into satire and political comedy on the ABC and now is responsible for The Chaser Report which is not only a podcast but also one of Australia's top ten news sites, according to recent surveys. This interview was recorded for the School Of Hard Knock Knocks podcast but Steve kept some parts for us, especially a roasting dished out to South Australian Chaser writer, John Delmenico! Secondly, we interview Nobel Laureate, Professor Barry Marshall, who won the Nobel Prize for his work discovering that ulcers were not caused by acid but rather they were due to bacteria. This interview was originally recorded for the This Pathological Life podcast but because Professor Marshall achieved his breakthrough working with South Australian pathologist, Dr Robin Warren, Steve wanted to share the SA flavour with us. Thirdly, Steve recorded a chat with Ian McFadyen earlier this year, the man who brought us the Comedy Company. Again, this was recorded for the School Of Hard Knock Knocks podcast but there are two important aspects Steve wanted to share. Firstly, how the generosity of helping someone out actually led to the Comedy Company being possible, and secondly, how happenstance has continued to follow Ian, including some South Australian connections. And finally, in the Musical Pilgrimage, Professor Flint has chipped in with some goodies of his own, a new album of his iconic dinosaur songs produced in Acoustic Unplugged style.

He won the Nobel Prize for his work discovering that ulcers were not caused by acid but rather they were due to bacteria. This interview was originally recorded for the This Pathological Life podcast but because Professor Marshall achieved his breakthrough working with South Australian pathologist, Dr Robin Warren, Steve wanted to share the SA flavour with us. Steve produces the pathology podcast for Clinpath Pathology with Dr Travis Brown, who you hear in the interview but Steve forgot to credit until the end of the show. Whoops! 01:24:46 Ian McFadyen Ian McFadyen is the man who created The Comedy Company - a comedy icon on Australian TV in the late 80s and early 90s. He's had a broad career but in this interview originally recorded by Steve for the School Of Hard Knock Knocks podcast there are two important aspects we wanted to share. Firstly, how the generosity of helping someone out actually led to the Comedy Company being possible, and secondly, how happenstance has continued to follow Ian, including some South Australian connections. 01:58:23 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song from Professor Flint's new album, Paleo Jam, called Rocks And Bones.

321 - An Audience With An Epidemiologist

In this week's episode of The Adelaide Show, we invite you to an audience with an epidemiologist during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we're doing this so you can be armed with more understanding of the complexity of this field and why our health authorities make decisions we often don't understand. Dr Jacqueline Stephens, Research Fellow and Epidemiologist at Flinders University, is our special guest and we were also joined by former host, Nigel Dobson, cognitive scientist. In the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a perfect song by Fergus Maximus, which is most fitting during this time of Covid-19 restrictions. To kick things off, in the SA Drink Of The Week, we return to Rojomoma for a hearty, Barossan red. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page Running Sheet: An audience with an epidemiologist during the Covid-19 pandemic 00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:02:13 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is a Red Art Shiraz from Rojomoma in the Barossa Valley. We taste it with winemaker, Sam Kurtz. 00:10:34 Dr Jaqueline Stephens, an epidemiologist I've been saddened by the growing volume (both noise level and number of voices) of people who are citing anti-science and consipiracy-theory views about our government's approach to dealing with Covid-19. And it is not so much the content - although that's misleading enough, eg, I already have my Covid vaccine it's called Vitamin D - but there is a snide and toxic tone to the commentary. At a time when we all need to be working together for the common good, these voices of dissent are dangerous. As our contribution to helping inform public debate, I am joined by fellow podcast host and cognitive scientist, Nigel Dobson, and Dr Jacqueline Stephens, Research Fellow and Epidemiologist at Flinders University. Thank you both for braving a heatwave day to join me. I'd like to start by getting some reactions to a little grab bag of thoughts and comments, then settle into some definitions, and then dive more deeply into the complexities of your field, Jacqueline, as an epidemiologist. Grab bag one: Heat wave - I've heard someone say that we're lucky Covid struggles in heat and thrives in the cold, unlike some other threats. True? Grab bag two: Serving food today. I had to find separate dishes for our allocation of olives. Grab bag three: I'd like to insert a reading here from The Plague by Albert Camus (read by Luke, on the episode of Blind Insights entitled, The Plagues of 2020). In that passage, Camus writes that the plague never dies or disappears for good; it can lie dormant for years and years in furniture and linen-chests, etc. Is this generally true? Grab bag four: Former guest, Dr Bill Griggs just shared a thought about vaccinations - sure to be a hot topic again. The right to choose not to vaccinate is like the right to chose not to drive on the correct side of the road. Both are expressions of individual freedom. Both may cost you your life. And both may result in death or injury to others. - Quick comment? Jacqueline, can you give us an overview of your field because Susan Payne writes: Infectious disease epidemiology (which includes the epidemiology of viruses) is the study of the complex relationships among hosts and infectious agents. Epidemiologists are interested in virus spread or transmission, with or without disease. Viral epidemiologists try to predict the potential for development of epidemics, and a very important part of their job is to define the kinds of interventions that could contain a virus outbreak. Veterinarians are often concerned with threats to food animals (how a disease of food animals might be spread, or be introduced into a disease-free area). The keywords being complex relationships, hosts and infectious agents, predictions, and interventions. Nigel references this book: The Hot Zone. Steve references this podcast episode, Anatomy of a Pandemic, from the This Pathological Life podcast. How much relative effort goes into epidemiology in chronic illness (heart disease, diabetes etc) , acute illnesses (annual diseases such as flu, chicken pox) and acute pandemics (e.g. COVID)? How often are the various studies and data collections done? (So weekly flu vs. annual heart, cancer studies?) What level is this done at, National , or State? Is it done by the government,private industry of Academia? How does epidemiology influence the funding,policy and work effort in dealing with various health issues? What sort of criteria is used for what we track and what we don't? As more people start tracking their health, steps, heart rate, oxygen levels etc., what sort of impacts will this have on epidemiology? What have been some of the negative impacts of not having any good epidemiological data in certain medical issues? What are the major challenges in the industry? Too much data, changing health priorities, changing government policy, peoples apathy about their health ? etc. On this note, in a recent Sam Harris podcast, Pandemic of Incompetence, Nicholas A. Christakis, MD, PhD, MPH, the Sterling Professor of Social and Natural Science at Yale University, stated: that Trump was advised of the upcoming pandemic in December last year. Now, Trump's not the best example of a proper leader, but if he was briefed surely other leaders were. What blocks government's taking a science-based, timely response to findings of epidemilogists? How has the field changed over the past 30 years with the increased access to computing systems and technology? Given that many actions taken in response to epidemics seem to be counter intuitive to the uninformed, has our access to social media - we all have megaphones - made public health interventions harder? For example, I heard someone loudly complaining (and being supported) that why should a miner in Coober Pedy have to go into lockdown for our recent hard lockdown, when the activity was in Adelaide? When people are self reporting on health issues , how do you get them to give honest answers and not the answer they think the epidemiologists / researchers would want to hear? If people or their kids  are interested in working in this area what sort of education would they want to get? Has there been a public health upside to our new behaviours? 01:59:47 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song, Closer To You by Fergus Maximus. This song is taken from a live EP called, One Gaslit Night, recorded at The Gaslight Tavern in Adelaide during August 2015.Fergus sings and plays sax on the EP, accompanied by Kym Perry played guitars (both acoustic and electric) and stompbox, and Jamie Harrison played basses (both electric and acoustic).This song captures the spirit of those living in quarantine - they are much closer to their family than they possibly ever wanted, while still being distant.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

We taste it with winemaker, Andrew Holt. 00:10:38 Cindy Westphalen "I want to come up a big long driveway and arrive at a surprise". They are the words of one of South Australia's most awarded wedding planners and caterers, Cindy Westphalen, in relation to Woodburn Homestead, a pioneering property in Langhorne Creek that she fell in love with and bought many years ago to become her base of operations. In many ways, the pathway of courtship, proposal, wedding planning, and then the wedding day is also like a big long driveway that arrives at a surprise. Of course, after that surprise, there is hopefully a long road ahead, complete with bumps, twists, turns, and sometimes dead ends. To help us understand how to navigate wedding planning, and maybe even our relationships, Cindy joins us on The Adelaide Show. 00:58:27 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song, Fairytale by BS Roberts of Ukulele Death Squad fame. This song is from the official pilot of the featre length documentary, Adapting.

Oh, and here's our index of all episode in one concise page   Running Sheet: Kym Purling and all that jazz00:00:00 Intro Introduction to the show. 00:05:14 SA Drink Of The Week The SA Drink Of The Week is 2017 Levrier Cabernet Franc from the Barossa Valley. We taste it with winemaker, Jo Irvine. 00:11:37 Kym PurlingKym Purling is a gifted pianist who first took the piano by playing songs by ear that he'd heard his sister playing during piano lessons. Fast forward to 2020 and this Adelaide boy (yes, we claim him as ours even though he was born in Vietnam), has toured the world and performed with many of the legendary names from the music world, the likes of Julio Iglasias, James Morrison, Engelbert Humperdink, Natalie Cole, and Harry Connick Jnr. Due to covid, he's back in Adelaide and has generously taken Dave Brubeck's advice to Take 5 with me for a chat about his life and jazz. At the time of recording, you are getting ready for a performance at the Southern Jazz Club at the Anzac Highway, which I can't wait to see. But before we wade into your world of music, I'd like to tease apart a few strands of your story because they really illuminate some of our history from the 70s. I was one of the foundation students at Marion Primary School, starting in its first year of operation in reception and then spending the next 7 years of my life there. At the bottom of the block of land which was originally covered with 6 foot high weeds and grass, was a tree and across the road from that, was a house, all on its own, just south of Westminster. That's where you lived, yes? Your sister, Rebecca Purling was in my class at Marion Primary and I'm not sure if she told you but that tree across from your house was known as the kissing tree, as we hit years 3 and 4. Did you ever experience or witness that action? I started by mentioning this because my recollection of life in the early 70s in Adelaide was one of simplicity, heat, and dust. We had Italian neighbours, who were gregarious and introduced me to beer, and my parents knew just about everybody on the block. But across the sea, the Vietnam War was underway and in that horrid episode of human history, you were born and then estranged from your birth parents, becoming one of the first children to be adopted from that war zone. I know this is still significant in your life, can you share any recollections of that time and your visits back to Vietnam? is it heartening to see how we have adopted Vietnamese cuisine in this country? I was acutely embarrassed to hear you were the subject of racial abuse when you first returned home? And what is home? Can home be more than one place? is it a factor of time spent, or some other type of connection? The story of you being driven to music by Rebecca's piano lessons is fascinating. Was it really a competitive spirit? I ask because my daughters have fierce rivalry and I don't know whether to stop it, encourage it, or just back off. How do you play by ear? Do you visualise keyboards or you are "seeing" themes and melody in certain ways? You used to play anything you could hear, including Billy Joel. Are you the epitome of his Piano Man? Take me through the arc of your awakening to music, classical, and then jazz. Is playing off chords important for jazz? In fact, can you tell me why I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame - but mainly when it has an off beat, rather than all smooth and tinkly? Can you demonstrate the off chord and talk us through its importance? A confession. The piano is your key method of musical expression. Sometimes I glaze over with piano. It is the bass, the drum, the sax that holds me. What am I missing? Or have I been too influenced by Fats Waller who thumped the lower keys to drive the rhythm in his tunes? I've heard you re-interpret music into the jazz format. Does that work best when we all know the original tune deeply - do you assume that so that you can push out further - or should we try to enjoy a piece for its own sake? And as an example, I cite Sweet Georgia Brown performed live by Oscar Peterson at the 1977 Montreux Jazz Festival. I struggle to find any trace of the original melody in that piece. There are some hauntingly beautiful pieces of music that I guess are called Jazz. One is Si Tu Vois Ma Mere - I have heard the Claude Luter version on the soundtrack to Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris. What style is that and why can it basically repeat itself non stop and not bore me? We interviewed Kiah Gossner in episode 296 of The Adelaide Show and he does some quite avant garde compositions. He believes though, that you do need to insert little treats throughout more obscure pieces to keep the audience with you, a bit like Hansel and Gretel leaving a trail of breadcrumbs. Do you agree? If you had to curate an aural self-drive tour into the landscape of jazz, what are the landmark pieces, performers, and styles you would put into the intinerary? In the world of Spotify and iTunes where people quickly sample a few seconds of a song, how does jazz survive and connect with new or young audiences? Or must you have some years under your belt to "get it"? For example, I find the best jazz (and perhaps music) is very elemental and has an almost sexual charge to it. On the performance side, I would like to finish with a couple of questions. Firstly, how rigorous are you with practice and rehearsals? For example, could you not play for a month and then just pick things up like riding a bike? Or do you need to constantly hone your skill? Secondly, you mentioned in a recent article that you enjoyed your jazz studies at Adelaide Uni but did most of your learning on The Strip in Las Vegas, watching how the world’s best entertainers put a show together: what they say, the songs they choose, how they open the show, etc. Can you please take us through a couple of examples, whether that might be Harry Connick Jr, Sandra Bernhard, Natalie Cole, etc. Finally, how are you structuring your performance at the Southern Jazz Club at the Highway Hotel next week?01:37:25 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a track composed by Adelaide jazzman, Chris Kelsey, and performed by the Golden City Jazz Band from the Original Tune Competition CD from 1993. The track is introduced by Paul van der Koog from the Southern Jazz Club Inc.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

318 - A Range Of Flinders Ranges Stories

In this week's episode of The Adelaide Show, we explore a range of Flinders Ranges stories. Firstly, Brendan, Governess Carmel, and Michelle Reynods share their story of diversitying their Willow Springs Station property into Skytrek (a 4WD tourism experience). Secondly, we hear from Kaye Fels and John Teague from Hawker and surrounds, recorded at the Hawker Drought Muster on the weekend, an event organised by various Rotary Clubs from Adelaide (including Campbelltown and Magill) to cap off their campaign of dropping hay up to drought-stricken properties in recent time. And, thirdly, in the musical pilgrimage, we hear from J-MILLA, a singer songwriter who represents the First Nations of life on this land. We've heard from him before but his new song 60k+ is a reflection on the 60,000+ years that First Nations people lived in and became bonded to the land, including the spectacular land around Wilpena Pound, home of the Adnyamathanha people. To kick things off, in the SA Drink Of The Week is from Rojomoma in the Eden Valley. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of wine?

We taste it with winemaker, Sam Kurtz. 00:09:46 Brendan, Governess Carmel, and Michelle ReynoldsMeet the Reynolds family - Michelle, Governess Carmel, and Brendan - owners of Skytrek Willow Springs Station, a drawcard for 4WD enthusiasts in the Flinders Ranges. There are many Flinders Ranges stories and opinions to share from running a station in drought to building a tourism attraction, from learning through School Of The Air to teaching city slickers how to dress for the country. 00:34:22 Kaye Fels and John Teague On the weekend just passed, the Hawker Drought Muster was held to wrap up a season of hay drops, organised by various Rotary Clubs from Adelaide including Campbelltown and Magill. Steve chats with a couple of local operators about the muster, the drought, and creating a life in the northern Flinders Ranges. You'll meet Kaye Fels from Merna Mora, and John Teague who runs Hawker Motors. 00:46:13 Musical Pilgrimage In the musical pilgrimage, we have a song, 60k+ by J-MILLA. Just over a week ago, J-MILLA was handpicked as one of the BIGSOUND 50, and he celebrated by releasing his 4th official track: 60K+ feat Goji. 60K+ is one of J-MILLA’s more racially skewed musings and came about when the Adelaide Festival Centre asked him to write a song for their youth program about the 2020 NAIDOC Week theme - Always Was Always Will Be. He had 72 hours to pen the track. He says, “60K+ just came to me. I wanted these young kids to understand and appreciate the fact that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples have been living on this country for more than 60,000 years; there’s evidence of 80 thousand years so I wanted to plant that seed in their minds. I also wanted to take the opportunity and point out that I was raised by a non-Indigenous single mother and that she taught me everything Iknow about my black culture. I wanted to make this clear in this song, so that these kids understand that if you care for one another like my mum did me, colour shouldn’t matter at all. Love is universal, we can all feel it.” Female singer, Goji, gives the song rich depth with her smooth melody work. It's the perfect song to wrap up an episode about the stunning land with a lot of history: The Flinders Ranges. And in news just in at the time of broadcast, it's been announced that J-MILLA will kick off NAIDOC week concerts on TikTOk Australia next Monday, November 9 2020, at 7pm SA time. Apparently, he is planning a 20-30 minute set that will be F.U.N.Support the show: https://theadelaideshow.com.au/listen-or-download-the-podcast/adelaide-in-crowd/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

And just as there are many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities that make up the group known as the first people, so, too, this episode is made up of a number of different components. Our feature guest is the former star of Black Comedy on ABC TV, Steven Oliver. This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is from Hollick Wines in the Coonawarra, and we're talked through the tasting by winemaker, Trent Nankivell.
