    CONtainers of Tonka's Toys

    This episode was put together after the first episode was released and those, who had previously been impacted by Andrew Tonks actions, reached out to us.
    Dr Muir shares her insight into what behaviour we should really question and how important it is to be able to see patterns in behaviour.

    In the last Episode
    We heard from Fabian Christoph, who sold his restaurant to Andrew Tonks. He had purchased the restaurant using a truck worth $150 000AUD as security....a truck he didn't actually own.

    CONtradictory Stories

    CONtradictory Stories

    If past behaviour is a predictor of present behaviour, can we learn anything from Andrew's?

    In the last Episode
    We uncovered Andrew's involvement with Queenstown Restaurant, a deal that meant for Tony, the owner, he would be selling his flagship restaurant for a cool seven-figure sum.  
    And for Tom, Andrew's investor and would-be Chef, it meant the funds he was days away from borrowing from his family to pay the deposit was saved from getting tangled in a Tonker turd storm.
