9th show - reality radio

aired Wednesday 19 May 2010 at Midday.

Since we had no guests on the show today, Jaime decided to test his co-hosts' knowledge of climate change in what he named the Climate Master Competition. Smokey and Stephen felt the heat during the show as they had to compete to stay on the show and avoid elimination.

In the end Stephen prevailed by a relatively slim margin but both contestants performed so well that Jaime decided to keep them on the show at least for a few more weeks.

The quiz was an opportunity to provide a bit of information about some aspects of Climate Change. Interested listeners / readers can access the quiz by clicking here. Not that we copied anything :).

On the show we also mentioned the World Resources Institute and the powerful it produces called CAIT (Climate Analysis Indicators Tool).

And you got to hear:

Michelle Shocked perform 5am in Amsterdam
Morcheeba perform The Sea
Elliott Smith perform Let's Get Lost
The Fall perform Garden

8th show - sharing is caring

aired Wednesday 12 May 2010 at Midday.

Would you like to organise a monthly movie night in your neighbourhood? Do you need a wheelbarrow or some tools but feel it would be silly to buy them to use them only once? Would you like to get to know people in your local area better? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you should have been listening to our show!

We had a great chat about an innovative movement based in Melbourne called The Sharehood. To learn about it we spoke to Michael Green, a freelance journalist who specialises in environmental, social and community issues. Michael is also a committee member of The Sharehood. One of the great things about The Sharehood is that you can start one anywhere in the World, using the same website!

For more information about Michael, do check out his website.

And you got to hear:

Bob Marley perform War
LA Freeway by Guy Clark
Grave Architecture by Pavement
Bobby McFerrin perform From Me to You

7th show - pedal power

aired Wednesday 5 May 2010 at Midday.

We talked about the most efficient self-powered means of transportation according to the Scientific American Magazine, the bicycle!

Stephen, a proud member of the Hume Bicycle User Group (BUG), talked to us about the group and their activities. We also had a lively discussion about the benefits of cycling (probably slightly biased, as we all ride to work regularly) and we mentioned a couple of organisations worth getting to know about if you are planning to get rid of the dust on your bike and start using it:

Bicyle Victoria -
Moreland Bicycle User Group (BUG) -

And you got to hear:

The Fall perform Container Drivers
Sebadoh perform Everybody's Been Burned
