Green Velvet / Thirty Minutes With

Monday 6PM

Thirty Minutes With

presented by Conor Burke

Thirty minutes with… is thirty minutes of conversation with interesting people.

Your host, Conor Burke has always been interested in people, what they are up to, why they are here and what will they do next.

For thirty minutes each Wednesday, Conor will probe, quiz and cajole everyday people to find out their story.
People who do exciting things, people who know something we don’t and people who can make us laugh, we want to hear it all.

Conor is a reformed tradie and practising journalist.

He has been with Eastside Fm since 2017 and had previous stints producing Eric Gyor’s Wednesday drive show as well as filling in presenting duties across all of the Eastside drive shows.

This is about the future, new technology, capitalism, frog orchestras, biomimetics, waste and resource management, innovation, endangered species, marine debris, post industrial society, intuitive digital , orangutans, palm oil, snake oil, and how the future has been portrayed in film and literature and what it will really be like.
