After reading one of Bruce Pascoe’s poems in last weeks episode Graham Farram bumped into Bruce in the street here in Bega. That encounter motived Graham to delve a little deeper into the content of Pascoe’s poem and look at other works from Guwayu – For All Times edited by Jeanine Leane.

Also in this weeks episode we meet Scott Herring. Scott was instrumental in the development of the Triangle Tool Library which is based in Cobargo. Scott had always had an interest in the communal lifestyle and the power that had in connecting communities. The summer bushfires served as an excellent instigator for setting up a community tool library to help those impacted by the fire get back on their feet.
