Declan Fay is a writer and producer known for Rove Live, Dirty Laundry Live, Ronny Chieng - International Student, and his podcast, The Sweetest Plum. He joins Sam and Clint to discuss his most recent project Ronny Chieng - International Student (ABC iView), the supposed 'lefty-loving-bias' of ABC Radio, political correctness in comedy, podcasting and the lifeline The Sweetest Plum, the pros and cons and perhaps even pointlessness of marriage, and 18 months of crazy-insane sleep deprivation following the birth of his first child.

Peter Brukner - doctor for the Australian Cricket Team - joined the podcast this week to be quizzed about his career as a professional sports physician for several national and international organisations including the Melbourne and Collingwood Football Clubs, the Australian Olympic Games team and the Liverpool Soccer Club. We also go in depth into his personal health journey which not only led to a 13 kilogram weight loss but also spurred him on to question current dietary recommendations that are now heavily implicated in the rise in obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and a whole host of 'Western' illnesses. He tells us about his personal experience, how health professionals, doctors and nutritionists could get things so wrong for so long, why they are so resistant to change, and how we can improve our health and longevity despite this. We also chat about the last tour of the Australian Cricket Team, the players that adopted his dietary approach to lose weight and improve their performance, and why he started the Sugar By Half organisation @SugarByHalf.

It's getting hot in here, and if Clint is lucky, Sam may open the window. But he'll be vigilant about spiders sneaking in, especially as Clint will be no help. 

Expect chatter about celebrity kids growing up, Clint still trying to remember where Sam is from, Clint recruiting muscle fibres, and using drugs and alcohol to numb the eternal burden of boredom.

Featuring the music of Isaac de Heer

Dave McDonald is a Quantum Physicist, drummer for The Dark Ales and is about to become a Dad!
