Podcast cover

Levins sat down with Tom Lawrence from Proudly Pokies Free, a new youth focused campaign which raises awareness about the damage caused by the pokies in Australia. NSW has 50% of Australia's pokies, and you'd be surprised just how many venues (and restaurants) you visit regularly that still have rooms filled with them. Getting rid of pokies means more room for food and live entertainment.

Three episodes in and we're further away from Mitch's kitchen than ever before - we recorded this one at Levins's house in North Parramatta. Andrew Levins and Mitch Orr are joined by return guests Mike Eggert (Pinbone), Analiese Gregory (ACME) and Richard Hargreave (ex-Momofuku Seiobo), plus we welcome first timer Mike Bennie (wine writer, wine maker, co-founder of Rootstock Sydney) to the Mitchen table. What was supposed to be a civilised conversation about the best places to eat in Western Sydney is quickly derailed by a 50 minute shouting match that includes lunchboxes filled with kohlrabi, graffiti in restaurants and whether it's ok to use the word 'funky' when describing natural wine. Halfway through the episode we're joined by another special guest when Levins's one year old son Archie wakes up to add his two cents to the heated debate.
