Nau mai, haere mai, Plato's Retreat are at full capacity this week, thanks to Cassels Brewing Co. 

Sam and Jenn turn up a little dusty but are positively jiving by the end of the show. This week includes some auspicious firsts (the first Peter Gabriel track and first drum'n'bass track played on the show from Teremoana Rapley), and one big second: the return of the Cassels Milkstout, recently re-crowned BEST MILK STOUT IN THE WORLD.

The whole gang is back in the stud for a rollicking Saturday afternoon on the high seas of musical frivolity 

Four Thirsty covers the Cassels Brewing Co Walrus NZ IPA - an all NZ made big old beauty and we match it up with a stone cold Aotearoa classic 

Rob gives us a good old break down of the sports and Emmerdale and it's another great show

The crew convenes for another Plato's Retreat presented by Cassels Brewing Co - through the magic of the internet/telecommunication network in the year 2020.

Level 3 has been a bit of a slog for the gang - Rob is pleased that he's getting 2 hours of Emmerdale a day though (and the PM/Ashley Bloomfield are apparently big fans). There's lots of basketball being played and that's something for Sam to be cheerful about 

Otherwise they play a bunch of songs which is always a bit of fun eh
