Andrew Bolt, 2GB broadcaster, Daily Telegraph columnist and Host of the Bolt Report on Channel 10; and Kristina Keneally, former NSW Premier and Friday co-host of The Contrarians on SKY give their thoughts to the big issues of the week.

Stuart Greggor

Stu Gregor is a chameleon of food and wine. He has written six guides to wine, judged dozens of wine shows and has owned his own wine business for a decade. So he knows a bit about wine. He now also owns a craft distillery which makes Four Pillars Gin – which is now considered one of the 10 best gins in the world (According to the World Spirits Competition, not Stu - he thinks its number one). He is also a food guru, having written reviews for the Good Food Guides in Melbourne and Sydney and worked with many of the best chefs and food producers in Australia through his PR business Liquid Ideas.

Stu also sits on the board of the food rescue charity OzHarvest so he hates wasting food, which is why he is slightly overweight. He’s mad for the Roosters and the Swans.

Kaye Browne

Journalist and broadcaster Kaye Browne used to 'chase' crooks, celebrities, sports-people and politicians for news/current affairs and info-tainment programs before discovering about a decade ago that she much prefers pursuing Veterinary, Animal Behaviour and Training experts so she can pass on their secrets to happier pets…and happier pet-people. When she's not chasing one of her chooks or dogs (Yoshimi and Kismet, the poodle pictured) Kaye writes for various pet/veterinary publications and can be contacted via her blog.
