Darren O'rourke.jpg

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Darren O'Rourke

Season: 1

Episode #: 07

One of this country’s most knowledgeable and attentive butchers, Darren O’Rourke wasn’t intended for butchery, unlike many others in the industry who, for them, the knives are passed down from grandfather to father, to son or daughter.  He’s lived a very different life and walked many pathways- all of which converged at the most famous butcher shop in the world- Victor Churchill. Darren is a quintessential butcher; trustworthy, honourable and knowledgeable, and more than willing to share that wisdom with whoever asks.  He is warm and welcoming and lives to create memories for every one of his customers.  With the existence of local butchers’ shops declining and butchers and their craft vanishing under looming behemothic supermarkets, Darren talks of what it means to him- his skill, the traditions and the honour of serving the local community & the Puharich family business.

Michael Lee.jpg

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Michael Lee

Season: 1

Episode #: 09

We’ve all heard about meat’s role and place in the changing world- whether that be its impact on climate or its high demand by the growing global middle class, impacting its availability & price.  Everyone has an opinion to express on the subject and the topic of ‘meat’ takes up a large chunk of many a dinner table discussion.  Our Guest, Michael Lee, isn’t a farmer, nor a butcher, or a chef- he’s a scientist and his opinion is that to provide protein for the world, we need to look at other options. Where he is looking & working is science fiction come reality: 3D printing of meat.

But even those who think they know him, may be a little surprised by this candid and prophetic conversation. A rare insight into why the Celebrity Butcher: is hell-bent on reclaiming his company’s reputation as Australia’s most prestigious and respected supplier of premium quality protein; why he is eating less meat, and increasingly pasture fed; his views on the dire state of the Australian meat market in light of the drought and insatiable foreign demand; for our produce; the rise and rise of Asian cuisine in Australia; the risks and opportunities being presented by plant and cell-based meat; and why he will never tire in his pursuit of building the best “meat” company on the planet.

Episode #: 26

Costa Nemitsas is perhaps one of the most colourful characters in a rainbow of personalities, which makes up the Australian seafood industry.

I don’t think I have ever had a conversation where someone is so willing to put his ego aside and just tell it how it is. Money, fast cars, family, outrageous levels of debt, unbridled self-belief and fearlessness; they broke the mould when they made this guy. Enjoy.

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Neil Perry

Season: 1

Episode #: 32

If there is one person in hospitality that doesn’t need an introduction, it’s Neil Perry. Most know him as the creator of the iconic Rockpool brand, the face of culinary for Qantas, the man who pulled of the deal of decade with the buyout by Quadrant Private Equity, to form the Urban Purveyor Group, that handsome face, and dare I say it, the ponytail. But there is so much more to this man, including a humility that most would not appreciate.  This is trip down memory lane, and an insight the psychology of a man who is ruthlessly committed to quality, loyalty and legacy. Enjoy

Matt Ringrose is an acclaimed Vedic Meditation teacher, who you wouldn’t naturally expect to find on a podcast about MEAT.

RUOK, Beyond Blue and others do a great job, but like many things, if you don’t fix the root cause, any treatment is a Band-Aid. I am absolutely convinced teaching everyone to meditate and baking it into our daily habits, will move the needle on mental health in hospitality. In this episode we unpack meditation and its benefits in greater detail. Enjoy.

Episode #: 07

One of this country’s most knowledgeable and attentive butchers, Darren O’Rourke wasn’t intended for butchery, unlike many others in the industry who, for them, the knives are passed down from grandfather to father, to son or daughter.  He’s lived a very different life and walked many pathways- all of which converged at the most famous butcher shop in the world- Victor Churchill. Darren is a quintessential butcher; trustworthy, honourable and knowledgeable, and more than willing to share that wisdom with whoever asks.  He is warm and welcoming and lives to create memories for every one of his customers.  With the existence of local butchers’ shops declining and butchers and their craft vanishing under looming behemothic supermarkets, Darren talks of what it means to him- his skill, the traditions and the honour of serving the local community & the Puharich family business.

We’ve all heard about meat’s role and place in the changing world- whether that be its impact on climate or its high demand by the growing global middle class, impacting its availability & price.  Everyone has an opinion to express on the subject and the topic of ‘meat’ takes up a large chunk of many a dinner table discussion.  Our Guest, Michael Lee, isn’t a farmer, nor a butcher, or a chef- he’s a scientist and his opinion is that to provide protein for the world, we need to look at other options. Where he is looking & working is science fiction come reality: 3D printing of meat.

This proud husband and father of four, now lives in the quaint, rolling hills of the Southern Highlands in New South Wales, far from the hustle, bustle, and dangers of the fast lane of hospitality in the big smoke. In this incredibly raw and open conversation, he bares his soul for all to learn from. A must-listen for anyone who has ever experienced anxiety or depression. Enjoy.

131203-AnthonyPularich-08-629-3.jpg

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Anthony Puharich

Season: 1

Episode #: 25

Anthony Puharich typically doesn’t need an introduction to anyone interested or involved in hospitality or meat. But even those who think they know him, may be a little surprised by this candid and prophetic conversation. A rare insight into why the Celebrity Butcher: is hell-bent on reclaiming his company’s reputation as Australia’s most prestigious and respected supplier of premium quality protein; why he is eating less meat, and increasingly pasture fed; his views on the dire state of the Australian meat market in light of the drought and insatiable foreign demand; for our produce; the rise and rise of Asian cuisine in Australia; the risks and opportunities being presented by plant and cell-based meat; and why he will never tire in his pursuit of building the best “meat” company on the planet. It’s a humble and inspiring conversation. Enjoy.

IMG_3303.jpg

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Costa Nemitsas

Season: 1

Episode #: 26

Costa Nemitsas is perhaps one of the most colourful characters in a rainbow of personalities, which makes up the Australian seafood industry. In the first of a 2 part series, we talk to Con about his meteoric rise and spectacular fall from grace. I don’t think I have ever had a conversation where someone is so willing to put his ego aside and just tell it how it is. Money, fast cars, family, outrageous levels of debt, unbridled self-belief and fearlessness; they broke the mould when they made this guy. Enjoy.

Episode #: 27

Costa Nemitsas invested 20 years of his life building a $10m seafood business, before his debt propelled charge to riches, saw his business and life tipped on its head. How he kept his sanity, family and perspective is a story in itself (see Ep26). Why he then decided to join the most prestigious meat company in Australia, founded and run by his best mate, is another colourful chapter and insight into one man’s pursuit of happiness and addiction to hard work and hustle. Enjoy.

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Neil Perry

If there is one person in hospitality that doesn’t need an introduction, it’s Neil Perry. Most know him as the creator of the iconic Rockpool brand, the face of culinary for Qantas, the man who pulled of the deal of decade with the buyout by Quadrant Private Equity, to form the Urban Purveyor Group, that handsome face, and dare I say it, the ponytail. But there is so much more to this man, including a humility that most would not appreciate.  This is trip down memory lane, and an insight the psychology of a man who is ruthlessly committed to quality, loyalty and legacy. Enjoy

Host: Paul Shaw

Guests: Matt Ringrose

Season: 1

Episode #: 38

Matt Ringrose is an acclaimed Vedic Meditation teacher, who you wouldn’t naturally expect to find on a podcast about MEAT. But we work in an industry where pressure is intense, depression and suicide are a clear and present dangers. RUOK, Beyond Blue and others do a great job, but like many things, if you don’t fix the root cause, any treatment is a Band-Aid. I am absolutely convinced teaching everyone to meditate and baking it into our daily habits, will move the needle on mental health in hospitality. In this episode we unpack meditation and its benefits in greater detail. Enjoy.
