Food, Views and Big Ideas

The new podcast from Straight To The Source

Co-founders and food and hospitality multi-hyphenates, Tawnya Bahr and Lucy Allon, are launching a new podcast called Food, Views and Big Ideas.

Food, Views and Big Ideas will connect listeners from around the world with some of Australia’s most dynamic food business leaders, artisans and innovators in the gastronomic landscape who are helping to make Australia’s food industry world-renowned. Guests will be invited to share their stories and how they are disrupting their industry by bringing new ideas or products to the table.

The first episode of the podcast features Tawnya and Lucy in conversation with the inimitable Alice Zaslavsky (Alice in Frames), followed by episodes with Sue Heward, founder of Singing Magpie Produce, and Fiona Aveyard, co-founder of Outback Lamb.

Tawnya and Lucy are thrilled to be launching this highly anticipated podcast, with Tawnya saying, “Food, Views and Big Ideas delves into the psyche of the people we work with everyday through Straight To The Source. We will be introducing listeners to the people who are driving our food and hospitality industry forward and positively influencing the food landscape, whether it be on the land, in the kitchen or from the boardroom”.

Lucy adds, “Our guests have been chosen because of the significant role they are playing in the evolution of Australia’s food identity and culture, whether that be locally, regionally, nationally or internationally.

They are people driven by passion, who think outside the box and who are making a difference, and we want everyone to know who they are, their views and their big ideas.”
Food, Views and Big Ideas draws on Tawnya and Lucy’s collective award-winning experience as chef, restaurateur, consultants and educators in the food service and hospitality industry. Both bring over 20 years of individual expertise to Straight To The Source, and are passionate advocates for homegrown producers and industry professionals alike.

Food, Views and Big Ideas is a fortnightly podcast available to stream here or on Spotify, Google or Apple Podcasts from Sunday, February 27.
