It is Anti-poverty week this week and Ellen Jacobsen came into the studio to update us about a pilot program from HoMie that aims to move young people out of homelessness and into employment. McZiff also continues to further explore the psychology of Trumpism (while Annabolics tries hard to deserve her Nasty Woman status). And GP Dr Joe Sherman - who combines medicine with acting - talks about combining the two ahead of a new production of Chekhov's The Three Sisters this week that he performs in.

We speak with Adrian Hearn, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Melbourne University. He has been going to Cuba every year of the last 16 and has recently received funding from the Australian Government (DFAT - COALAR) for a project looking at urban agricultural practices between Melbourne, Havana, and other cities in Latin America and China.  He says Latin America has some of the best practices in the world in resilient and sustainable urban farming, and in Cuba during the stressful period following the fall of the Soviet Union, urban agriculture was necessary for survival. 

Later in the show we talk with favour makers Ru Norbury and Conor O'Hanlon from Favours who offer *free* services to anyone who just needs a little help!
