We were joined today by Spade and Barrow's Katy Barfield, who spoke about her career in "food rescue" - getting food that would normally be wasted and ensuring it will be used. The most recent phase of this is the Yume app, allowing the public to purchase cheap produce. Download it onto your gizmo and have a look!

Joost Bakker braved the crosstown traffic to make it from Monbulk to East Brunswick. We talked about Melbourne's seasons, grinding oats and flour, raw milk, and nutrition vs politics.

We finished today's show with winemaker Duncan Buchanan, who like most winemakers is BUSY right now bringing grapes off vines. This vintage, everything is ready at the same time so chaos has ensued!
