We started today’s show with a quick wrap-up of Matt’s trip to adult Disneyland, Las Vegas… surreal.

Frank and Elizabeth from Home Make It joined us to tak about the upcoming Darebin Home Made Food and Wine Festival, which as the name suggests is all about the cultural traditions of doing things yourself at home. Home Make It specialise in classes for making your own passata, salami, and (clearly the most important) wine. Never thought of trying this at home yourself? Maybe check out the festival and learn how!

Next up we spoke to John at the Vic Market.

To finish today’s show we spoke to Philippa Sibley, who has just finished up running the kitchen at Prix Fixe. We chatted about mushroom season and how best to use them, as well as Philippa’s spooky flavor combination of passionfruit and mandarins.

This week we're joined by Phil Newman, RM's Mornington Peninsula correspondent to catch up on surf news from the MP and the recently completed Pt Leo information centre. We'll be lamenting how crap the surf has been this year, why 3 is the magic number and asking for formal applications from prospective Surf Coast and Phillip Island correspondents. And listening to groovy early 70's tunes.


During the week, confirmation by the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) that four dolphins and two seals were killed in the nets of the supertrawler ‘Geelong Star’ within the first few weeks of fishing in Australian waters. The risks of catching and killing threatened species have always been one of the main concerns since the Abbott Government permitted the vessel into Australian waters, despite the concerns of NGOs, recreational fishers and the wider community. We’ll speak with Tooni Mahto, Australian Marine Conservation Society about the reaction to this terrible event, and the proposed sanctions – are they going to be enough?

And Rex Hunter, our Maritime Heritage expert brings us the latest in shipwreck and maritime archaeology news, and a profile of the wreck of the month – the Cape Verde.
