Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast with head brewer & co-founder of Newstead Brewing Company, Mark Howes.

 
As one of the pioneers of the burgeoning Brisbane craft beer scene, molecular bioscientist Mark Howes and the partners of Newstead Brewing Co founded their brewery in December 2013 and Mark had to make the rapid transition from 40 litre home-brewer to head brewer of Newstead Brewing Company.
 
With a 2nd Newstead brewery, bar and restaurant set to launch shortly across the road from Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, the brainchild of the Howes clan (Peter, Heather and Mark) and Michael Conrad has gone from strength-to-strength.
Super 1-on-1 podcast about taking the leap of faith from the safety of a 9-5 to running your own successful business. Bite off more than you can chew and then chew like hell. Very exciting!
 
Let’s get into it!

Let’s get started today! 

Australia Day. Striving for a culture of inclusiveness. #ChangeTheDate

Posted on

img_7150

I love Australia… I want to be able to celebrate Australia, wave my flag on Australia Day & be proud of everything that we are… 

This is a phrase that I am sure is true to all of us… indigenous Australians, Asians, Indians, Greeks, Italians, black, white, green, gold… no matter what part of planet earth your ancestors might originate from… all of us in this wide brown land are boat people and of late I have been thinking a LOT about the cultural significance of Australia Day & its lack of inclusiveness for everyone.

If you are in need of further food for thought, keen to learn more or garner an inside perspective from the inside looking out, then I’d ask that you watch this video below by Carla McGrath of Get Up! or download these free podcasts that Australian comedian Wil Anderson has recorded with talented indigenous Australians, Adam Briggs (hip hop artist, writer and comedian) or Cleverman creator Ryan Griffen. These inspiring podcasts are not just focused on the Australia Day issue, but are also wonderful ranging chats with 2 of our brightest creative stars.

Yes, I am a privileged, middle-class, white Australian male who grew up not really knowing, understanding, appreciating or exploring the  dirty, little, not-so-secret of the history of our country… because it’s not ingrained in our schools and education enough and I didn’t try hard enough. We smash beers on Australia Day whilst listening triple j’s Hottest 100, without paying regard or a modicum of respect to the first settlers of this land, who have been here tens of thousands of years… And yet we’ve only been celebrating a 26th of January for 21 years! So why can’t we change the date?

I love this country with all my heart, warts and all. But I’m frustrated by so many elements that hold us back from being one of the most amazing and progressive nations on the planet (Australia Day, marriage equality, casual racism and deplorable internet speeds to name but a few). We only need to look at our cousins in New Zealand to feel ashamed and see how much further advanced we could be in a number of these issues.

I want to be able to celebrate Australia, how much it means to me, to wave my flag on Australia Day, drink some beers & be proud of everything that we are… But I can’t. Not until we change the date. So until that time, my Australia Days will be a little more low key than I’d like them to be and I will use this article that I’ve written today as a promise.

I will use the tools of influence that I have built for myself and my brand… my Bondi Beach Radio show, my Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast, blog and social media channels as a platform to learn more about my fellow Australians and champion their stories and perspectives, so that we can no only #ChangeTheDate, but evolve into a more open society and country where everyone feels welcome… in their own country and their own home.

I look forward to a day where all Aussies can celebrate #AustraliaDay as 1. Black, White, Green, Gold, Straight, Gay, LGBTQA.. Here’s hoping! 😃🌈❤

Rebecca Coomes – Founder of The Healthy Gut & SIBO cookbook author 🎙 Entrepreneur Podcast Interview #112

Posted on Updated on

The Healthy Gut founder & SIBO cookbook author joins Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! on Bondi Beach Radio.

Download the show free on iTunes – #112 Rebecca Coomes (founder of The Healthy Gut & SIBO cookbook author).

 
A highly successful marketing and brand communications professional who has worked with a number of high profile businesses, today’s guest on Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet on Bondi Beach Radio, Rebecca Coomes, is a friend of mine whom I’ve known for about 20 years and is now the owner and founder of The Healthy Gut and author of the new series of SIBO Cookbooks.
 
Before we get into the thick of things of show I wanted provide people with context as to the subject matter today and what SIBO is for those of you who haven’t heard of it before. I must admit to feeling a little confronted bringing this topic to radio as it is not easy subject matter to bring up in a public sphere, but that in itself is exactly why I decided that it was important to do it. 
 
Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is caused when excess number of bacteria enter the small intestine. Some of the symptoms associated with SIBO include abdominal cramping, bloating, food sensitivities and diarrhoea and/or constipation. 
 
Though not well known in Australia, SIBO is potentially a very common condition as it is estimated that up to 80% of IBS sufferers may actually have undiagnosed SIBO. 
 
Author Rebecca Coomes suffered from chronic health issues her whole life. After years of frustrations seeing GPs and her health not improving, she turned to a Naturopath who diagnosed her with SIBO and recommended a new clean eating plan restricting all grains, all sugars, fermentable fibres and processed foods amongst a wider list of gut troubling foods.
 
It means so much to me to promote the wonderful projects and businesses that my friends and people that inspire me are creating and if I can’t utilise my own platforms to not only celebrate their hard work, but raise awareness for important topics that quite often go unnoticed and can make a massive impact on people’s lives in the process, then what is the point in doing what I do.
 
And the best part? The recipes are 100% gluten-free and include dairy-free and sugar-free recipes too.
 
Bec Coomes, you are a legend! Let’s get into the show!

Posted on Updated on

Damian Costin (123 Agency founder + Nighthawk drummer) joins Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! on Bondi Beach Radio

Download the show free on iTunes – #111 Damian Costin (123 Agency founder + Nighthawk drummer).

 
Damian Costin has been in the music industry for over 20 years. Starting out as the drummer of Australian rock band Motor Ace in the late 90’s performing shows with bands including the Foo Fighters, Oasis and Blink 182, Damo switched to the other side of the fence and hit the ground running as one of the top bookers in the Australian industry and a few years back founded his own artist booking agency and corporate business called 123 Agency. 
 
123 Agency boasts an super impressive artist roster that is testament to the hard work of Damo and his 123 Agency team. There’s a whole BUNCH of my favourite Australian artists and bands including Kingswood, Tash Sultana, Ash Grunwald, Harts, Pierce Brothers, Clairy Browne, The Delta Riggs and shitloads more.
 
He’s also back behind the kit in Aussie band Nighthawk. We have SUCH much to talk about and get through including the evolution of 123 Agency, some of your artists including Kingswood and Tash Sultana… so let’s get into it. 
 
Enjoy the show!
