You’ve heard George Inglis on our podcast throughout 2015 with his Time To Think pieces but tonight we get him all to ourselves to THINK about Adelaide, South Australia and our future, so get ready for an arm wrestling of ideas!

We talk about our incessant use of and reliance upon cars even though we are clogging our city and making them less useful. We discuss urban sprawl, public transport, Adelaide City Council’s attack on food vans, and a whole lot more relating to city life and city planning.

In IS IT NEWS, Nigel tests us on the theme, Planning and Traffic.

George also provides our SA Drink of the week with a fish out of water – a shiraz from the Coonawarra!

We also introduce our new sponsor, Audible. You can get a free audio book by going to We explain it in the first part of the show.

In music, we hear Andy from Andy and Marta going solo.

In the Made To Move Minute, Myth Busting – Strength Training Making You Bulky.

But first, David Washington from In Daily presents his midweek news wrap, Talk Of The Town.

More details and timecodes below.

00:17:04 George Inglis
George is a regular voice on this podcast with his Time To Think segments but tonight we have him for the whole show to mark the first anniversary since his first appearance so we can find out if any positive changes have taken place regarding transport and planning?
George has been intimately involved in planning and infrastructure in this state, so tonight we’ll let him off his leash to howl at the moon over our suicidal love for cars, illogical aversion to cycling, bemused indifference towards public transport and love for interesting architecture sometimes.
