Listen to Breakfasters - 25 February - 01 March 201901:05:0325 February 2019

This week on Breakfasters, we get a quick lesson in what sort of questions NOT to ask the trio (and people in general, really). Food Interlude is back, and food critic Larissa Dubecki is in the studio to talk about Feb Fast, the silliness of mocktails and the best alcohol-free beer around. Former Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner has produced his second fiction novel, "Comeback", and shares his thoughts on crime as a genre, property developers and the diversity of people living in the inner-city. It's time for Feature Creature, and Simon Hinkley talk about the different ways insects defend themselves, from the classic 'roll over and play dead' to the classy fecal parasol. As the former Race Discrimination Commissioner, Tim Soutphommasane experienced a lot of uncomfortable and nasty things in his everyday life, and he visits the Breakfasters to talk about his new Melbourne Uni publication "On Hate". A new segment is born, and Sarah is the first one to bring something for 'Show and Tell'. Listen in to find out what!
