Climate change is real. Many governments are doing nothing. Guess who’ll pay the price.

Is ‘clean nuclear’ the answer? We find out from Adelaide University’s Ben Heard just before he flies out to London to address the World Nuclear Summit.

In IS IT NEWS, Nigel tests us on the theme, Nuclear Weapons Testing.

The Royal Adelaide Show opens this week and we have the SA Goodies bag to preview tonight.

Our SA Drink of the week is a Gramps drop from the Barossa.

We hear about an SA author who has a number of books on Audible, our audio book sponsor. You can get a free audio book by going to We explain it in the first part of the show.

In music, we hear a song written for a Mumpsimus production called Money (our guest from last week Andy Packer, is one of the three members of Mumpsimus).

In the Adelaide Visa Council, slim pickings this week, but a blimp is involved.

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