First up today we had a quick update from the market with John, who *may* have plied us with some grappa... but there are worse ways to start the day.

Next we spoke to Matt Lumalasi and Vanessa Kwiataowski from Melbourne City Rooftop Honey. Melbourne and its inner suburbs actually have greater bio-diversity than traditional regional food growing areas, and there is a lot of unused rooftop space for bees to hang out. We spoke about the marked difference in honey flavour even from sites that are quite closely situated, the importance of the bee to agriculture as a whole, and dealt with any concerns consumers might have regarding "city stuff" contaminating the product.

Finally we spoke to Joost Bakker, restaurant designer to the stars. Joost has grown his sustainable design business over the years, and now is one of the most sought-after designers in the biz. We discussed the growing awareness of sustainability in design; why surround yourself with shit that can kill you? He's currently busily preparing the famous Greenhouse pop-up restaurant for this's year's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

We handed out some bouquets at the start of the show... if you're after a great pizza, you'll certainly find one at Supermaxi in North Fitzroy, and for a cracking dinner you could do a whole lot worse than The Commoner in Fitzroy.

We launch the inaugural "That's my Beach" - where YOU tell us all about your best beach. RM listener Chris Haylock steps up to the plate to wax lyrical about Pt Leo. Then Dr Beach returns with some cool papers, including the size limits of lunge-feeding whales, and the discovery of weird and wonderful communities in newly found deep-sea hydrothermal vents in the deep south. Dr Surf brings a wrap up of the upcoming DSA events at Ocean Grove and Pt Leo, and interviews legendary boardshaper Malcolm Campbell.
