230 - The Adelaide Show 2017 Retrospective: Science and Nature
January 18, 2018 Steve Davis

The Adelaide Show 2017 Retrospective: Science and Nature, is our reflection upon our relationship with the world around us and the creatures who share it with us. Our retrospective is co-hosted by 2017 guest, Leila Henderson. In 2017, some of the honourable members for this topic include: Max Martin from iNform Health, it's hard to talk about science and nature without thinking about Max's persistent messages through the life of this podcast to get out into nature and move more, based on his evidence-based exercise physiology expertise. Episode 177. Senior Curator for the National Motor Museum, Mick Bolognese, gave us a great insight into how the Bush Mechanics incorporated "nature" in their vehicles through applied "science" from necessity. Episode 196. Matt Taylor and Krystal Brock from Middle Ground Productions applied science in their own way, to create a post-apocalyptic world in Dust, a web series shot here in SA. Episode 201. But for this week's show we'll be revisiting: Bruce Munday, author of Those Wild Rabbits, to shake our heads over how naive our European forebears were when it came to introducing rabbits to Australia Adrian Sherriff from Animals Anonymous, who confirmed the existence of the Adelaide Snake Lizard and generally helped us feel more comfortable around snakes Associate Professor Vic Gostin, who took us through the wild and rocky ride that our patch of Earth endured over the past few billion years This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is still the Penfolds Grange, which is now being eaten via poached pears. In 100 Weeks Ago, we hear from two mates, John Schumann and David Minnear, who joined us as guests for our first ever live show, as part of the 2015 Adelaide Fringe. And in the musical pilgrimage ... we'll go back to Sleep At Night by Tim Whitt from episode 212, recorded using instruments created from sound samples taken around Adelaide. Tim also has a gig during the Adelaide Festival, too. So watch this man! And please consider becoming part of our podcast by joining our Inner Circle. It's an email list.
