19th Show - Merri Creek

aired Wednesday 28 July at midday.

The focus was once again very local for this show and we thoroughly enjoyed having another very interesting guest. This week it was Angela Foley from the Merri Creek Management Committee. She talked us through the creek's history, the role of the committee, recent successful programs and much more.

It seems that education is the key aim of the committee and you can educate yourself far more about the creek and how to conserve it by listening to this podcast!

18th Show - Solar in East Timor

aired Wednesday 21 July at midday.

We braved the ever temperamental phone lines to contact Anton Vikstrom from the Alternative Technology Association. He works as the International Projects Coordinator for the ATA. Between some informative conversation on the ATA's projects to get solar power systems installed in remote conurbations of East Timor, we had fantastic music once again.

If you find the content of this show motivating and inspiring be sure to contact Anton about donations or volunteering - details within the podcast.

For this show we were joined by Andrea Bunting, a senior lecturer in the Engineering department of RMIT and knowledgeable source of all things alternative energy sources.

Jaime and Steven in particular discussed with her the benefits and drawbacks of alternative sources. After this we all got to hear Andrea's superb politically and environmentally motivated poetry, backed by some very gentle ukulele. As usual, Smokey provided some great tunes to glue the show together.
