It's a new year of science with Einstein A Go Go! Dr Krystal, Andrea, and Chris KP discuss Darwin Day - endlings and dinosaurs; the current La Niña climate pattern and Melbourne's strange summer weather; the Russians drilling through into Lake Vostok under the Antarctic Ice; the latest on the Square Kilometre Array and spotting the International Space Station.

The team talk to Professor Michael Quinn, from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Melbourne, as part of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, about the current state of research into this disease.

Starting us off for 2012 we were joined in the studio by Ken Burgin from Profitable Hospitality. As a "go-to-guy" for people wanting hospitality advice, we had a chat about what it takes to run a successful cafe or restaurant. And yes, it should be possible to both make money, and not consume your entire life! We spoke in detail about the challenges of paying casual staff more on weekends / public holidays, and also how hospitality responds to our broader economic context.

Next up we checked in with John at the Vic Market; a lot had been happening over the summer period!

And finally we went "around the grounds", checking in with our major wine-making regions as to how vintage '12 is travelling. Whilst Duncan Buchanan from Dromana Estate, Steve Flamstead from Giant Steps / Innocent Bystander, Mark O'Callaghan from Robert Oatley Vineyard, and Adam Foster from Syrahmi all grow different varieties in different regions, all are very positive about this year's crop.

It's time to shake off the beach towels, head on down to the water and dive into the briny blue for another year of Radio Marinara!
To kick off 2012...

  • We catch up with the marathon efforts of the Save Bastion Point campaign and speak with Leo op den Brouw, live from Gabo Island. What's happened over the summer? Is Bastion Point saved? Has the Government lived up to its election promises? Should we dare to dream?

  • We then talk all things Port Phillip Bay - plenty reports in the papers - but what do they mean? Is the Bay as bad as the mainstream media would have us believe? Brett Illingworth shares his views.

  • Angeline peruses the latest batch of Australia Day Honours recipients, and presents those who've been honoured for their services to the marine, coastal and oceanic environment.

Plus a round up of news, what's on, and a forecast to the launch of our new segment 'That's my Beach' where YOU get to do the talking, and convince us that your beach beats them all.
