The Wednesday Wire Hosted By Paul Deady


12:15 - Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1 and Bruce Kirkland, Tsunami Entertainment

The NZ Music Industry Commission starts its Warrant of Fitness Seminars today, giving local musicians expert advice on how to export their music. Two of the guest speakers join Paul in the studio - Huw Stephens, host of the OneMusic show on a small station called BBC Radio 1, and their youngest ever host. And Bruce Kirkland, president and founder of Tsunami Entertainment whose clients include bands like the Dandy Warhols, companies like Sony, and brands like the Beatles. They'll be talking about the radio climate, particularly music radio, as it relates to the internet.


12.45 - Tim Fulcher, Group3 Technologies

The ITER project is a joint effort from the world's biggest countries to produce energy from nuclear fusion. This is incredibly hard to do, but could potentially solve a number of the world's more pressing energy concerns - dwindling fossil fuel reserves and the need to reduce carbon emmissions. Construction has begun in France, and the project could last for 50 years. Paul speaks with Tim Fulcher from Group3 Technologies, a New Zealand company that wants in.


1.15 - Gordon Campbell

Last night the Bruce Jesson Memorial lecture was delivered by Gordon Campbell up here at Auckland University. The lecture was a bit of a slap on the wrists for both the media and politicians alike, as Gordon talked about the worrying trends in both of those areas towards personalisation, tabloidisation and commercialisation.


1.45 - Regan Cunliffe, throng.co.nz

Regan Cunliffe, along with his wife Rachel, recently launched a website called throng.co.nz. It got not one but two mad props from the Listener this week, who called it a portal for anything TV-related.


Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.

Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Digitl: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?
In 1989 Charles Handy wrote The Age of Unreason. It's a book that looked forward to a time where telecommuting would be an everyday reality. We live in that world today, although we use the term working from home. The book contains other predictions that were on the money... More>>


Reactionary Succession: Peter Dutton, Australia’s New Opposition Leader
The devastation wrought on Australia’s Coalition government on May 21 by the electorate had a stunning, cleansing effect. Previously inconceivable scenarios were played out in safe, Liberal-held seats that had, for decades, seen few, if any challenges, from an alternative political force. But the survival of one figure would have proved troubling, not only to the new Labor government, but to many Liberal colleagues lamenting the ruins. The pugilists and head knockers, however, would have felt some relief. Amidst the bloodletting, hope... More>>


Digitl: Infrastructure Commission wants digital strategy
Earlier this month Te Waihanga, New Zealand’s infrastructure commission, tabled its first Infrastructure Strategy: Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa. Te Waihanga describes its document as a road map for a thriving New Zealand... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>




The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
