Shakespeare made the Play Within A Play famous so we are developing that notion into the Show Within A Show. Tonight, WE are the guests of Amelia Veale of the Be The Drop podcast. Amelia wanted to interview us about YOU, our podcast community, and we wanted to interview her about Be The Drop, so we recorded two shows at once.
This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is Wirra Wirra Church Block, with a special story
Nigel will try to stump us with IS IT NEWS on the topic of Queen Adelaide
In 100 Weeks Ago we hear from local mum, Ainsley Machonicie, who has MS and was heading to Israel for some stem cell procedures to halt the disease
And in the musical pilgrimage … it’s Written In The Skies
Suggested Tweet text: Will you @Be_The_Drop and start a #community? We get deep into #communication.

Wirra Wirra Church Block, McLaren Vale … tasting notes
Thanks to Pickles and Bonz, we have this wine. We won it by flattering them on their podcast! And Amelia was my muse – I just had to win. Amelia’s image is the first one, Steve’s the one below; the winning one 😉 (Steve).

|00:11:18||Amelia Veale interviews Steve and Nigel and vice versa
A few weeks ago, we met Amelia Veale as one of the other podcasters at the Adelaide Podcast Festival. Tonight, the host of Be The Drop, steps in to interview us. It is a show within a show.
As you’ll learn tonight, Be The Drop is a Bryce Courtenay saying from one of his characters who explained that even a mighty waterfall begins with a single drop.
The theme of our discussion was community.
In the growing internet of things, as computers are increasingly connecting our lives, what does it mean to be human? How do we open ourselves to truly meaningful connection? We can now connect with people across the globe with ease and speed and yet what’s increasingly lacking and what communities and seeking more and more, is the human element. The trick to successfully develop relationship building in today’s online world is to develop strategies that enable you to look your community in the eye; digitally.
Amelia is increasingly interested in the need to be human, to shift our focus towards a human economy. The human economy is one of connection and sharing, where people are recognised and given a sense of significance through valued contribution. All of these aspects build trust, respect and the foundation for mutually beneficial relationships.

> What is the most successful communication platform(s)?
Conclusion – Your #bethedrop tip (aka: your top community communication tip) Find the thing that rocks your boat. It is more than likely that there will be others who share that interest.

|01:39:10||100 weeks ago
|One hundred weeks ago, we met local woman and mum, Ainsley Machonicie, who has lived with MS for many years but was then embarking on a stem cell process to halt the disease and possibly reverse it. As a side note, Ainsley in joining us soon for an update, but here is her helpful analogy to describe the careful way she needs to live so she can conserve her energy and functionality, daily.|
|01:42:22|| Musical Pilgrimage
|And our song this week is Written In The Skies by Ben McNeil, selected by our musical curator Dan Drummond.|
|I may have some holes … what is slam poker? … So long, farewell|
Here is this week’s preview video:
SFX: Throughout the podcast we use free sfx from freesfx.co.uk for the harp, the visa stamp, the silent movie music, the stylus, the radio signal sfx, the wine pouring and cork pulling sfx, and the swooshes around Siri.
