bad-soft-drink Photo Steve DavisCould our Adelaide winter be a blessing for getting healthy?

Professor Gary Wittert from the University of Adelaide thinks so and explains why as we talk to him about all manner of health topics as part of the SAHMRI opening.

The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute is celebrating its official opening this week and we chat with Gary about:

  • The SAHMRI
  • The Fat vs Sugar Q and A involving Tony Jones this week
  • Whether South Australia should use indulgent food in its tourism advertising, given a growing awareness about cutting down on calories
  • You’ll even learn what section of the supermarket makes him angry, really angry!

Chloe from Yelp is with us to undo the professor’s work and guide us around five spots where you can avoid the cold and enjoy hearty, interesting meals – with or without tracky dacks!

Brett poses a question: when is grooming too much grooming for men? He explains in the podcast and seeks your feedback, especially from women listeners.

We note the launch of AdelaideFree City Wifi – enjoy it as you go about the CBD.

Colin notes the large number of mobile phone offenses reported by South Australia Police recently, while Steve shares an inspiring quote from Michael Bollen from Wakefield Press about the true joy of a great book.

And we have the largest Adelaide Visa Council history on record, all thanks to a probing tweet by the @WeAreADL account, being managed this week by Alexis from THE SHOW on PBA-FM.
