Health Trip 27th April 2009 This week on Health Trip, naturopath Gill Stannard talks about whooping cough. While most of us would think this is a childhood disease in reality most of the cases in Australia are in adults, with about a third of all persistent coughs being caused by this bacteria.  Donna and Kujla chat to Gill about the "100 day cough", how to treat it and why whooping cough is so prevelant despite the high immunisation rate.

Radio Marinara - Marine & Coastal News and Views Jan Juc artist Tony Wills, a.k.a. T-Bone, talks about his latest exhibition at the Swell Cafe in Torquay, "Something in the Water", which continues his three-dimensional theme of seascapes and local surf breaks. Pieces include scenes of Bells Beach that hang alongside surfer's-eye perspectives of riding inside a wave. Recycled native timbers are used to frame the pieces, adding a unique touch to the finished product.

Sydney diver and underwater photographer Mark Spencer played a key role in the filming of the fab new IMAX feature Under the Sea 3D. We chat with Mark about what it takes to shoot an IMAX film, the joys of working on this one and how he manages to lead a double life as a dentist. Lucky we're not on television, or we couldn't show you his face. Apparently.

And it's crappy movie time on Marine Soundscapes as Jeff Maynard introduces a real sinker - Captain Nemo and the Underwater City. Jeff stumps and shocks the team with this question:  which famous underwater personality said, "For reasons of their own, women are suspicious of diving and frown on their menfolk going down"?
