    The 90's Nostalgia Episode

    It's time for a mid-lockdown re-charge in Melbourne. What better way than throwing it back to a simpler time - the 90's! In this episode Byron is joined by Aussie music icon Joanne as we go back through all those nostalgic memories you sent in via the show's instagram.

    Listen out for some amazing celebrity cameos and even an exclusive [and terrible] live duet of Joanne's smash 90's hit "Jackie" featuring Byron struggling on his new electric guitar.

    It's an episode guaranteed to give you a lift if you want to escape the news cycle for an hour - whether you're in Melbourne or not!

    Social media sensation Ibby Akbar

    Social media sensation Ibby Akbar

    Eight years ago, Ibby Akbar decided to post a few videos on Facebook to entertain his family and friends. What started out as a bit of fun pretty quickly became something much bigger. Now having built up over 200K followers across his social media networks, Ibby is about to realise a childhood dream.

    In August he will perform to sold out theatres in Melbourne and Sydney on his very first Australian tour "I Am Ibby Akbar".

    At a time when people [at least in Victoria] really need a good news story, this episode comes at the perfect time. There are plenty of laughs as well which definitely doesn't hurt.

    From stories of growing up in an ethnic family, to relationships, to poking fun at society in general, Ibby opens up to Byron about his process and personal beliefs.

    A Covid Vaccine Q&A ...with NO QUESTION off limits!

    Dr Rod Pearce AM, Chairman of the Immunisation Coalition returns to The Byron Cooke Show to answer more of your questions regarding the COVID vaccine rollout in Australia.

Many issues are covered in this episode, from the ineffectiveness of government advertising campaigns through to new conspiracy theories and how these continue to fuel vaccine hesitancy in the community.

    The Immunisation Coalition is an independent not for profit organisation seeking to improve the protection of all Australians against infectious diseases by advocacy for immunisation.

    This episode follows on from two previous episodes titled "Jab Chat" which can also be found at byroncookeshow.com and on your favourite podcast platform.
