The Tuesday Wire Hosted By Kim

12:20 Child Health: a grim outlook
The Pediatric Society has released a wide-ranging report on child health, which it says paints a grim picture. It seems like children have been the biggest losers in this country's recent economic prosperity. Kim will be speaking to Dr Liz Craig about the report's findings.

12:40 The Youth Justice debate
No sooner has debate surrounding the controversial s59 amendment begun to die down, another issue regarding minors has arisen that already looks set to polarize Parliament. This time it's to do with the youth justice system – do we need one at all, and if so, at what age should people fall under it? Kim will be speaking to John Hancock, a senior solicitor at YouthLaw.

1:00 The Arts Hole
What's on in the art world this week? Find out with our resident arts expert Ash.

1:15 The Campaign Against Child Abuse
Dr Hone Kaa is involved in a conference this week aimed at fighting child abuse, particularly in Maori communities. He will join Kim from the conference to talk about the issues that have arisen.

1:40 The Green Desk
A recent report has suggested that a Hummer may not be such a bummer when it comes to effects on the environment. According to the 'Dust to Dust' report by CNW Research, a Toyota Prius outdoes a Hummer in costs to the environment. Today the Sustainable Simon talks to Stephen Pollard of the Clean Green Car Company about what's really fueling the personal transport debate.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
