John will be chatting to some Uni of Tasmania stalwarts as well as numerous footy types who have popped down to Hobart prior tot he Nth Melbourne vs Sydney game the next day.


It is worth noting that Tech company Intuit will be making their debut as an Almanac sponsor! Thanks to all involved and check them out via the link above. We will be catching up with our friends from Blundstone as well. They are wonderful supporters of The Almanac.
