On this episode of The Grapevine, Kulja and Dylan get on the line with Dr Saul Griffith, founder of the Rewiring Australia & Rewiring America, to discuss the benefits of a net-zero emission economy. Dr Griffith breaks down the findings of the new report ‘Castles & Cars, savings in the suburbs through electrifying everything’ that details how Australian households could save up to $5000 on their bills through complete electrification.
Then, regular guest on The Grapevine, Associate Professor of Urban planning at Melbourne University, Dr Dave Nichols, calls in to talk about Melbourne opening up and what our city will look like after COVID.
And Victoria State Library Exhibition Curator, Linda Short, phones in to talk about the online exhibition ‘Changing Face of Victoria’ that among many things, details the history and evolution of coffee culture in Melbourne.
