The Chris Smith Afternoon Show

Chris Smith has built an impressive career both in Australia and abroad covering news and current affairs in radio and TV. Chris' radio career began in regional NSW, with many years spent at Network Seven and Nine, where he travelled the world in his role as reporter and Chief of Staff, including six years at A Current Affair. In May of 2005, Chris won the Variety Children's Charity Radio Heart Award for his excellence in radio.

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.

Barnaby Joyce

Senator Barnaby Joyce LNP Senator for Queensland, Leader of The Nationals in the Senate.

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.
