57-richard-pascoe Photo Steve DavisWhat gets Adelaide’s bits into a bob?

Adelaide Tech Guy, Richard Pascoe, pictured as Eric Morcambe, joins us live to survey the IT landscape of South Australia and talk about:

  • Tech trends in SA
  • Cityfree WiFi
  • Podcast listening tips

Then we switch gears and head to Japan, where former South Australian radio man, Chris Glenn, gives us an insight into auto tech. Chris got to test drive the very latest hybrid cars from Toyota and gives us his insider’s opinion.

Then we switch gears again and ponder Adelaide’s ladies of the night. We have an escort of them (is that the collective noun), discussing Adelaide in the Adelaide Visa Council.

In Is It News this week, not only do we have our panel play the game, we then share a set of stories for YOU to play along with at home. The first correct answer to [email protected] will go into the draw with other winners for the month of October, to become a contestant in Is It News in episode 60.

Wine comes from the suburb of Marion – Steve’s old ‘stomping’ ground, so to speak.

And music from Andy and Marta.
