The Adelaide Show
196 - Bush Mechanics In Our Backyard
May 24, 2017 Steve Davis

This week, Steve and Nigel get into gear with the Bush Mechanics exhibition at the National Motor Museum, Birdwood. Senior Curator for the National Motor Museum, Mick Bolognese gives us a tour of the exhibits, the themes, the stories, and the culture, while the museum's Tinkerer In Residence, Mark Thompson, shares his perspective on our bush mechanic heroes from his perspective as Advanced Research Director of the Institute for Backyard Studies. This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is from Kersbrook Hill Wines News of a new mascot for the podcast: The Adelaide Snake Lizard. Nigel will try to stump us, virtually, with IS IT NEWS on the topic of bush travel. In 100 Weeks Ago we hear from Peter Boghossian, author of A Manual For Creating Atheists, with a snippet about what type of knowledge to trust. And in the musical pilgrimage ... our musical curator has gone into overdrive with a great selection from a band called Desert Flood (listen in to learn our poignant that choice is).
