The Galnet Rares Digest - your ULTIMATE guide to the rares in Elite

Rare items - lucrative and scarce - are dotted throughout the galaxy. Some are foods, others machines, some are entertaining and others are just downright dangerous.
In fact - MOST are dangerous (after all, the hint is in the name Elite: Dangerous)

For the last couple of years, the intrepid pilot Aemilia Hawk has been travelling the galaxy - researching and testing all the rares. Investigating WHY they exist, WHY they're rare and exactly what they taste like (and NOT just the foods).

Now - for the first time, and collected in ONE place is your ultimate directory of the rares in the galaxy - not just the little summary in the trade screens, but DETAIL. For your enjoyment (and as a warning to those who even THINK about opening one of those cargo pods) - the list is below.

Our thanks to the marvellous Aemilia for being brave enough to test them all out.

"This IS Aemilia Hawk of the Galnet Rares digest and she tries all of the galaxy's rarest and most dangerous commodities, so you don't have to."

NOTE: Some of them pre-date our broadcasts on YouTube and exist only as audio - we're locating these broadcasts, re-editing them and putting them up on the channel over the next few weeks.
EXTRA NOTE: Might contain innuendo and the occasional naughty word.
BONUS NOTE: More rares tested each week on Hutton Orbital LIVE - Thursdays, 2030 UK time.

We felt with all the pending new lockdowns, and people taking time off for the holiday season - NOW was the perfect time to dip into the list of rares and give you shortcuts to them all.
Well - that lot represents something like.... 1000 minutes of listening right there. Just the rares!
That's a good 17 hours of your Christmas "post dinner" coma you can just tune in and switch off your brain for.
Funnily enough - we were talking about the beermats after the show whilst post processing everything ready for upload.
We need to investigate them - what can you tell us about their history?
