This week we look at Adelaide and South Australia from two different overseas perspectives.
First, we chat to former FIVEaa announcer and local TV cameraman, Sean Perry. He now lives in Malaysia and has interesting stories of life behind the scenes and Channels 7, 9, and 10 in Adelaide, along with FIVEaa, and lots of stories from Malaysia with comparisons between there and here.
Sean tells us the two finger salute he is doing in the picture is commonly shared, innocently, between Malaysians.
Secondly, we chat with Englishman, Colin Hicks, who took holidays to fly half way around the world for the Adelaide Fringe for the second year in a row!
Nigel is back with another IS IT NEWS challenge
George Inglis reflects on the familiarity trap
In the MADE TO MOVE MINUTE, Max Martin claims, Too busy not to lift!
And music directly from WOMADELAIDE.
But first, David Washington from In Daily with the midweek news wrap, Talk Of The Town.
