The Cat reconnects with its purpose, turning trash into treasure with co-owner of Canberra’s legendary Green Shed, Sandie Parkes. While Kaaron is haunted by an old woman in a knife and Joseph cashes in on his teenage son’s emotional vulnerability, Aaron makes a robot out of paddle-pop sticks. Wet string is discussed, and doctors’ waiting rooms. The history and mystery of objects, their journeys and purposes old and new. The tragedy of objects unused. Fine art. Trench art. The slide rule world, set alight.

This episode was so engrossing, we forgot to make a list of cool things for it, so hit us up on Twitter @LTCIpodcast if there’s anything you’d like a link to.
