These are conversations with my old man Ian Smissen for you to learn more about Australian culture, news, and current affairs.

In this episode, we talk about a dog who saved a litter of kittens that were dumped on a snowy road - humanity, where is your heart? Also, we talk about whales that migrate from Antartica to Australia, their dangerous journey, and what gets them stranded.

Finally, what do you think is a convict's worst nightmare? It's prison hell so bad that you draw straws on who's to die first.
