To celebrate the official launch of Right Now Radio on Triple R, we screened "You'd Sing Too", a short film by Sian Darling and recorded a podcast at Loop bar with a live and lively audience!  Ben and Rach speak to Right Now's new Chair of the board and "lawyer to the people" Lizzie O'Shea about her current matter fighting on behalf of indigenous landowners against the government's plans to put a nuclear waste dump at Muckaty Station.  Ben and Rach also chat to RNR's very own arts reporter Evelyn Tadros about all things arts and human rights as well as how to sneak into sold out concerts! 

Finally, as an extra special treat, Evelyn Tadros interviews Okka, an Indonesian poet, performer and inclusive arts advocate about her poetry and the importance of artists who have a disability to be afforded equal opportunities in the arts industry.  And for the cherry on top, Okka performs one of her poems for us.

In a newly re-carpeted studio 2, we started off today's show by having a very quick chat to Mamasita's Scott Eddington; they are moving to seven day trading next year and need some staff. If you feel like working in a busy kitchen / downing marguaritas, get in contact with Scott with your resume.

Next up, Dan Hunter joined us on the phone all the way from Dunkeld. Since joining the Royal Mail Hotel in 2007 he has overseen their rise to the top, currently the only three-hatted restaurant in regional Victoria and one of only four in the entire state. We spoke at length about the Royal Mail's kitchen garden, which was originally born from necessity due to the long distance to the next market. We also spoke about the idea of "growing soil", getting the kitchen brigade into the garden, and the restaurant's effect on the region's food industry.

We also caught up with John at the Vic Market.

We then continued our festival of mega-chefs as Dandelion's Geoff Lindsay visited us in the studio. We spoke about his previous life at Pearl, and what motivated him to move away from the starched tablecloths in favour of Vietnamese cuisine. We covered some of the unique aspects of food in Vietnam, the differences between Viet and Thai fish sauce, and the vibrancy of Vietnamese herbs.

All Over The Shop - 22 November 2012

Stew refers to the All Over The Shop franchise, stunning Larry who points out that usually a franchise is something that makes money. For the first time in aeons somebody mentions the show Beverly Hills Buntz in public. Leapster has to explain to Stew that actors typically play someone who is different from them, by means of pretending. Stew determines you can’t trust actors. In one of the more heartstring tugging moments of genuine emotion on the show, listen out for Larry’s reaction to the news that the AOTS text-message phone has bitten the dust. 


CLASSIFICATION WARNING – Apart from all the usual concerns about swearing words and groin-level concepts, all of Norm Buntz, Andy Sipowitz and the movie career of David Caruso are mentioned on this plodcatse.
