The team continues the great Marinara tradition of bringing you a quirky but informative look at all that is marine. Get to know all things wet and salty.

Pint of Science & Jeff with Soundwaves
This week, Bron and Dr Beach head into the marine lab (to see what’s on the slab), and will peer down the microscope to examine... • Pint of Science 2021! Are you feeling thirsty for some marine science and perhaps a bevvy to boot? Then Pint of Science is for you! Chanel Egan is Chief of Staff (or should that be Head Bartender?) at Pint of Science and will tell us about the wonderful two weeks of online science programs about to kick off. • We’ll then have a chat with two of the stars of this year’s online Pint of Science. We’ll speak with Indrani Mukherjee from UTas about ancient ocean chemistry and the origins of complex cells, and Amy McIntosh from ANSTO in Sydney about radioactive contaminants associated with offshore rigs. • Then Jeff brings us the next edition of Soundwaves Seaquels. Yes the bad stuff just won’t go away.
Seaspiracy, Parks Victoria and Marine Vertibrates
Fam and Anth are on deck Sunday with a diverse rock pool of marine and coastal stuff! Fam been watching Seaspiracy - yep - and like all of us has some views. Join for an RM TV review (with a difference). This weekend is Sharing the Love #5 - the amazing 5th time that Parks Victoria and others have run the Victorian Marine Volunteers Forum - Sharing the Love 5. Time they are in Anglesea. We will be joined live on the line from STL5 by a mystery reporter to fill us in on how this year has gone to date (and will go from here). In our monthly look at marine & coastal adaptation we welcome back Dr Sue-Ann Watson, Senior Curator (Marine Invertebrates) from the Museum of Tropical Queensland, Townsville to talk more about the ways molluscs (marine snails and stuff) are adapting to a changing climate - especially the acidifying of our oceans.
Cabin Boy, Baykeeper, Bellerine Art & Flinders Pier Demolision
This week, Bron and Kade are in the beach house: •Cabin Boy joins us for a sailing report, taking a look at places to sail if you don’t live by the sea. •We’re speak with Bellarine Peninsula artist Chelsea Gustafsson, who frequently uses washed up beach debris to create stunning art that expresses her worries about the health of our oceans and questions the role we as individuals play in making this world a better, or worse, place. •Baykeeper Neil Blake talks about the perils of not-so-innocuous synthetic grass, and the potential impacts on our Bays and waterways. •Plus news of plans to demolish the much beloved Flinders Pier, a federal government announcement this week of $100M for Australia’s oceans, and new research suggesting that the tagging of fish for research purposes might be more detrimental than we’ve previously thought.
Tommy Dodd, Ethic of Fossil Hunting, Soundwaves
Bron and Fam catch up with •Rex Hunter about exciting news about the discovery of the Tommy Dodd in Port Phillip Bay •Ben Francischelli (Museums Victoria), to explore the ethics of fossil hunting, and what you should do if you think you’ve found a fossil, and •Jeff Maynard with Soundwaves Seaquels: this week we ask the burning question… how many Seaquels does it take to sink a franchise?
Cape Bridgewater, Nudibranch, Vegetarian Sharks and Little Penguins of Middle Island
Dr Beach and Kade bring you a diverse hour of all things wet and salty, including: •an update on Save Cape Bridgewater campaign with campaign spokesperson Mary Picard •a fascinating new science paper describing how a species of nudibranch literally loses its head (or body, depending on your perspective), only to grow itself whole again. •evidence that once upon a time, there was a species of now extinct vegetarian shark (go Bruce!) •and Deakin University’s Dr Trish Corbett joins us to talk about the Little Penguins of Middle Island, and the dogs that look after them. Radio Marinara, Sundays 9-10am, Triple R 102.7FM, or listen live or later via rrr.org.au
