florence-lang Photo Steve DavisIts show vs show, radio vs podcast, as the Adelaide Visa Council deliberates over the overt attempt by hosts of The Show on PBA FM to obtain a Visa.

Will it succeed? Will it fail? Will both programs’ presenters rattle sabres for weeks to come? You find out in this episode. Clue: Ribbit.

What do a famous cricketer from South Australian history and a famous cricket umpire from Adelaide have in common?

They are both linked to presenters from our podcast.

Brett Monten is related to John Collard Cocker, the man who laid the first pitch on Adelaide Oval.

Steve Davis, through the quirks of social media, fields irate comments from Indian cricket fans about umpiring decisions made by cricket umpire, Steve Davis. In fact, Steve has been drawn into this world so often, he now has a page on his personal website dedicated to his cricket umpiring persona – meet the real Steve Davis.

Brett celebrates his birthday by providing the wine, thanks to Alice from his work who listens to us at high speed?!

Plus we chat about the new Adelaide City Library, National Geographic featuring Adelaide as a Smart City and plenty more.
