Rob brings in a couple of special topics this week. He teaches Rachel and Tess about the effects of Catnip (safe for animals?) and opens up a debate over the best crisp flavour, must to Tess's dismay.

Rob brings in a plethora of fishy puns. From D Double Eel, to Pearl Clam, they come rolling in from Rob and the listeners. Plus, a guide through coral damage from climate change and how the fish can rebuild. Nice.
