The winter series of The 9pm Edict continues with another very special guest, satirist Mark Humphries. We met up on Bastille Day. We retreated to an upstairs bar. This delightfully rambling conversation was the result. 

We spoke about bigotry, beef tallow, the honesty and integrity of Clive Palmer, giant African land snails and brain worms, Elon Musk versus Donald Trump, Bruce Ruxton, Gerry Harvey, Baz Luhrmann, Cameron Daddo, and much more.

Mary Yong Cong, a Florida Dept of Agriculture scientist, holds a Giant African Snail in her Miami lab on 17 July 2015. The invasive species was discovered in Florida in 2011, and has cost officials $10.8 million so far. Florida plant detectives are hot on the trail of a slippery foe, an invasive African land snail that is wily, potentially infectious, and can grow as big as a tennis shoe. In the four years since Giant African Snails were discovered in Miami, they have slowly but surely spread to new territory in the southern suburbs and even northward into the neighbouring county of Broward.
