Rubenerd Show 399: The smokeless Melbourne epsiode (12/11/19)

28:40 – Bushfires have engulfed Sydney for more than a week now, so it was a relief and joy to wander around back in Melbourne on a business trip with blue skies, even if only for a couple of days! Talking about the inevitable comparisons between Sydney and Melbourne, Stanley Kubrick-inspired data centres, health nonsense about Kombucha, tree-lined streets, and wishing for a Ricoh GR III pocket camera. Creative Commons music by Chris Jurgenson.

Recorded in Melbourne, Australia. Licence for this track: Creative Commons Attribution 3.0. Attribution: Ruben Schade.

Released December 2019 on Rubenerd and The Overnightscape Underground, an Internet talk radio channel focusing on a freeform monologue style, with diverse and fascinating hosts; this one notwithstanding.

  1. Rubin,

    Very disturbing to hear about the air quality there. I hope you are staying in filtered environments as much as possible. This should be a national crisis where everyone stays in filtered indoor air. I know that is not practical, but I hope you can stay out of the pollution. Scary stuff. Stay well.

  2. Thanks Chad, really appreciate it :). The same thing seems to happen in California and the western parts of the US too, it’s pretty scary!

    Clara and I are staying indoors as much as possible; we’re lucky that we have a HEPA filter on our air conditioner at home.
