Cataclysm: Episode Nineteen

October 11, 2015


For the last episode of 2015, we return to our roots, spending some time thinking about our home state of Victoria. With enviable beaches, wild bush terrain and the so called sport/culture capital of Australia at our doorstep, is Victoria truly 'The Place to Be'?

After being battered down by Melbourne's weather, EP's Rachael and Ashleigh take their Date Night to new heights and cool off at a roof top bar. Pavement Philosopher Katie Coulthard hits the streets of Melbourne to ask exactly what Victorians love about their vibrant surrounds. 

Evan Young talks to us about the effects the Black Saturday Bushfires are still having upon the CFA volunteers who risked their lives.

Harriet Conron and Brendan Wrigley take Politics on the Couch to the people by roping in some hapless EP's for a quiz, Jade Bate thrills with a wrap of best films made in Victoria and Alexander Darling takes us on a journey through Melbourne's Indie Record Scene. 

And to round out the year, Alicia Barker takes us on a mysterious journey up the river for this episode's Bookclub, with Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness'. 

Presented by Finbar O'Mallon, Ashleigh McMillan and Rachael Dexter.
