23rd Show - Election rundown and a new hour-long format!

aired Wednesday 25 August at midday.

This week we were without a guest, so we decided to have a chit-chat about the election results and what they could mean for the environmental issues that are discussed on the program. We also enjoyed the luxury of an extra ten-minutes to squeeze in a couple of extra songs. So, that should be all the more incentive to tune in live next week on 98.9 North West FM.

And you got to hear:
Letter From a Lifeboat by Sugargliders
Brainville by Flaming Lips
Summer Here Kids by Grandaddy
Perfect by Smashing Pumpkins
Speeding Motorcycle by Daniel Johnson and Yo La Tengo
Everybody's Been Burned by Sebadoh

Listen to the show!

22nd Show - Election Special (Part 2 of 2)

aired Wednesday 18 August at midday.

The election theme continued into this show and everyone was happy to welcome standing member for Wills and ALP candidate Kelvin Thompson to the show. Jaime and Smokey quizzed Kelvin on several topics and, much like the week before, he had a little time to tell you all about himself.

Listen to the show!

21st Show - Election Special (part 1 of 2)

aired Wednesday 11 August at midday.

Last week was supposed to be the first show of a political triple header, but unfortunately the Liberal candidate for Wills couldn't join us. This week we had no such problems and were joined in the studio by Mark Riley - the Green Party candidate for Wills in the upcoming federal election.

Mark told us a little about himself, answered questions on several issues - mainly related to the environment - and picked us a track to play too. The show was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about Mark and to educate any potential voters in the area of Wills. Next week you'll have the same chance with Kelvin Thompson, standing member and ALP candidate for Wills.

And you got to hear:
Always tell the voter what the voter wants to hear by Chumbawamba
Apple tree by Hazel Brown
Gurrumul History (I Was Born Blind) by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu
Diceman by The fall

Listen to the show!

20th Show - The Recap Show

aired Wednesday 4 August at midday.

This show was scheduled as the first of a heavyweight political triple-header, but due to a last minute cancellation from our guest we were forced to reassess.

It was decided that our 20th show was the perfect chance to recap on the shows and guests so far. Acting like a directory of environmental action locally and further afield, this show is a perfect chance to get into the show as a first time podcaster or to find out which other podcasts would be most interesting to you!

And you got to hear:

Theme From Get Carter by Stereolab
Sunday by Customkings
Wake Up Boo! by The Boo Radleys
Might Aswell Be Dumbo by The High Llamas
Stillness Is The Move by Dirty Projectors
Monday Morning 5:19 by Rialto

Listen to the show!

Vote 1: Environmentality

Environmentality is off to the polls over the next few weeks.

Current member for Wills and Labor candidate, Kelvin Thompson, is coming in on the 18th. Greens candidate for Wills, Mark Riley, will be on the 11th. We are expecting the Greens candidate for Calwell, Lenka Thompson to join us and are trying to confirm the time. Other major candidates were invited but were not available or didn’t reply.

So, it will be gloves off as we tackle the pollies… I’ll be channelling my inner Tony Jones, Josh is going for Kerry O’Brien, Stephen is an excellent fit for Laurie Oakes and Jaime (who has a track record with female impersonation) will become Leigh Sales.

Should be fun!
