The Adelaide Show Podcast 2017 Retrospective: Business

The Adelaide Show 2017 Retrospective: Business, we take our hats off to people who are doing the hard yards and earning their living doing something they love, and who bring their WHOLE selves to “the office”.

Our retrospective is co-hosted by 2017 guest, Leila Henderson.

In 2017, some of the honourable members for this topic include:

  • Brooke Sivendra, author, she runs the business of being an author with smooth, cool, aplomb and Steve got hooked on her books after our chat about sex and suspense in romance novels
  • Richard Fewster from Ruston’s Roses in Renmark, a man who runs his business with great drive but also is a staunch advocate for his region
  • Nick Leaver, artist, has married his artistic vision with his business by using reflections of the digital world to not only create his art but also to promote it
  • The Ceravolo Family from the Adelaide Hills, they work crazy hours to keep us in fruit and fruit juices

But for this week’s show we’ll be revisiting:

  • Michele Bain and Nick Cureton from Yondah Beach House, two designers who have become leaders in ecotourism through seizing an opportunity and putting in a lot of blood, sweat, and tears
  • Alison Oborn from Adelaide Haunted Horizons, a woman whose love for the history of people and places has led to an award-winning business that draws customers from far and wide for her “reality-based” ghost tours
  • Juliet Sandison, Theatre Costume Shop, wears her passion on her sleeve like a costume. She loves her work and has attracted like-minded souls around her who enjoy helping others enjoy dressing up

This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is still the Penfolds Grange, the last morsels of which are now being sipped.

In 100 Weeks Ago, we hear from Becky and Ian Blake of Chunky Custard fame, who part of our 2015 Adelaide Fringe show.

And in the musical pilgrimage … we’ll go back to Willy The Weeper by A.P D’Antonio from episode 193.

Theme (we didn’t use our full theme in the retrospective episodes)
Theme and Introduction. Our original theme song in full is here, Adelaidey-hoo.
00:02:31 SA Drink Of The Week
 1991 Penfolds Grange … tasting notes
00:14:50 Michele Bain and Nick Cureton
This couple has created a nature reserve and a place for human recreation at the bottom of Yorke Peninsula, and it’s been all hands on deck. Here’s an insight into Yondah Beach House from episode 225.
00:19:14 Alison Oborn
Alison Oborn’s Adelaide Haunted Horizons is a business even us hardened skeptics approve of because her motivations are curiosity and an empathy for the people of our past. Alison keeps it real and marries historic locations with the imaginations of guests to cultivate a very popular tourism experience that just keeps winning awards. This is from episode 205.
00:24:52 Juliet Sandison
The Theatre Costume Shop is an institution in Adelaide, especially for high school drama teachers and people who love fancy dress. In episode 222, Juliet Sandison tried us on for size and left us in awe of her natural talents for discerning what’s inside us so it can be displayed through costume.
00:30:36 100 Weeks Ago
In 100 Weeks Ago, we hear from Becky and Ian Blake of Chunky Custard fame, who part of our 2015 Adelaide Fringe show. In this snippet, we ask Becky some questions about Ian, but she can only answer using a keyboard.
00:34:55 Musical Pilgrimage
And our song this week is Willy The Weeper by A.P D’Antonio, selected by our former musical curator, Dan Drummond.
