62-annabel-crabb-chick-litSouth Australian born, Political commentator, Annebel Crabb, joins us to chat about pollies talking tough tonight.

The conversation stemmed from two happenings in state politics through the week:

Premier Jay Weatherill being humble and passionate at the Welcome To Australia march

Tourism Minister Leon Bignell being all bravado-like, thumbing his nose at North Adelaide residents and telling the Rolling Stones to play as ‘long and as loud’ as they wanted to.

This topic sparks some discussion among the trio and then ABC political commentator Annabel Crabb joins the show to talk about the weird and rare experience of politicians breaking the mould and facing up to dissenting publics.

Janis Hill, local author tells us about her book; Bonnie’s Story: A blonde’s guide to mathematics. It is chick lit, apparently, and involves high mathematics, fantasy, and bunny slippers.

We also enjoy wine from Patritti Wines in the southern suburbs of Adelaide with a grape that has been grown for 6,000 years.

Colin then tests the boys’ news savvy in Is It news? before singer, songwriter, and former AFL-football hopeful, Christian Andrew, sings us home with his new song, Hope.

00:10:20 Interview: Annabel Crabb

Steve talks about the gentle, humble side of the state government, based on Premier Jay Weatherill’s speech at the Welcome To Adelaide march in Adelaide last weekend.

He then contrasts that against Tourism Minister Leon Bignell’s thumbing of his nose to North Adelaide residents worried about the loud Rolling Stones concert, telling the band you can play as long and as loud as you want to.

This leads to our discussion with Annabel Crabb, South Australian-born ABC political commentator, about the unusual experience of hearing politics talk tough to dissenting publics.

It’s not often you get a message like this. Thanks for your interest in my first book. It is a light-hearted sci-fi/ fantasy urban fantasy. What a mouthful. It’s received good reviews so far and is averaging 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads and I hope you like it enough to not revoke my Adelaide Visa!

That author is Janis Hill and she joins us this week to talk about her book, Bonnie’s Story: A Blonde’s Guide to Mathematics.
