Martin does the weather in a uniquely Nimbinesque way, then takes us on a stroll around the town to meet a cross section of village society in alternative Nimbin. We meet Hip-hop Rappers and Graffiti artists from the Nimbin Youth Club. We get the lowdown on regional media with the editor of the Nimbin Goodtimes - multitasking man-of-many-hats schoolteacher and jazz musician Bob Dooley. Then on to a 'protest' meeting at the local hospital - a lacklustre affair until Martin arrives. Finally a talk with local alternative energy activist Peter Pedals who tells us what's in store with the 'peak oil' issue. Will there be life after oil? Martin wraps it up with a giggle as he goes underground to get the good dope on the Nimbin Bong Shelter project.
