The Thursday Wire
With Fill-In Host Noelle McCarthy

12.15 Holly Walker Critic Magazine.
Holly is on the front page of the Herald today, courtesy of a piece in Critic Magazine which she edits. The Piece is called “Diary of a Drug Rapist” and it’s got Rape Crisis up in arms. The police say it constitutes Date Rape 101. Holly sez she was offended too, but the piece was too important not to publish. She joins us on the Wire at 12.15

12.30 Martyn “Bomber” Bradbury.
Bomber knows a fair bit about drink spiking since an episode of his “Stakeout” tv series dealt with the issue. As a former editor of Craccum magazine he’s also been in the thick of student media. He’s on the Wire to talk about the Critic controversy.

1.00 Matt Nippert. The Listener.
We haven’t spoken to Listener hack Matt since he flew the coop to Colombia University. He joins us with an insight into the media agenda in the USA.

1.30 Alastair Thompson
With his regular feature “In the House”

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
