12.15 Dr Max Abbott Dean of AUT's faculty of Public Health. 1 in 5 New Zealanders and 1 in 4 Aucklanders is a migrant. Dr Max Abbott is one of the country's leading researchers on migrant health. How do migrants fare in this country? Dr Abbott has headed several studies on health issues affect different migrant communities. We'll ask him why for example, older Chinese migrants get depressed and why Samoan mothers have such low rates of post natal depression.

12.30 Oliver Driver. Auckland's enfant terrible of theatre talking about Caligula. Mad bad and dangerous to know. A role he was born to play. We found a doorway to huddle in after the performance

1.00 Dr Rob Salmond. Lecturer in Victoria University political studies department and US expat will give his take on media coverage of the US Presidential Elections.

1.15 Arc Cafe There are fears it's the end of an era for Dunedin's iconic Arc Cafe, which has been a hub for the local music scene for seven years. The charitable trust which runs it has fallen into debt, forcing a change of ownership smack bang in the middle of the fringe festival. Is it doomed to become a bottle store or a tacky Irish bar? We talk to staff and the new manager to clear up the rumours.

1.45 Imogen Neale with the Mag review. This week Imogen is wondering whether a good mag should be any more than light relief. She's in the studio.
