The Thursday Wire Hosted By Imogen Neale

1200 - news, weather and surf with Bjornar

1215 – New Zealand First's Transport spokesperson Peter Brown

Wrapping up a week of Transport, New Zealand First's transport spokesperson Peter Brown joins us to tell us exactly what his party's stance is: What do they think about tolled roads, buses, a connected city of seamless transport or peddle power and electric cars? And then there is the Public Transport Management Bill...

1225 – Dr Sean Sullivan

A big part of the transport debate circles around fuels - how much, what, where from... Dr Sean Sullivan from LanzaTech is developed a way to turn carbon monoxide, or dirty emissions, into clean fuel. I kid you not, it's not science fiction - the government recently put $12 million towards his research. He joins us at 12.25 to talk about future fuels.

1245 – Carol Perwick

As much as women might be tempted to loose weight when they become pregnant research released yesterday argues this is exactly the wrong time to shed a few kilos. Why? Because it seems that women who diet before pregnancy both gain more weight during their pregnancy and increase the risk of things like diabetes, c sections and large babies. Carol Perwick is a clinical dietitian at Christchurch Womens Hospital she joins us to talk through the findings and hopefully impart some basic, and sound advice.

1300 - Greg Newbold

I'm confused. The crime stats make it look like crime is up, some say no, it's just more reporting. Other say yes, they are, more reporting or not. How can it be that numbers are so subjective? Is anyone else confused? Is there a clear picture there somewhere politicos just aren't talking about? I hope that's something Sociology Professor Greg Newbold from Canterbury University can clear up for us at 1.

1320 - Peter Griffin

In Peter's science kete this week is the debut of WiMax technology in the US (whatever that is), a shakeup of broadband plans at Telecom - someone had better warn the furry pets - and the first attempt to record sound on another planet. That'd be Mars. Honest.
1340 – Paper cuts with Pennie

For most people buying a little piece of art for the wall is something they put on their wish list - after they've paid for the many other things like road user charges. But. Wait. Help is at hand. Check this: Esopus magazine. A whole book load of art for your guilty pleasure. Is it that good? Could it be Penni's first 5 paper-cutter?


Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.

Gordon Campbell: On The Lockdown, Masks And Aerosol Transmission

Ironically, our relative success in suppressing the exponential spread of Covid-19 is only increasing the pressure to ease back from those measures, on a regional basis at least. We seem set on course to start tentatively emerging from lockdown in about ... More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Wage Cuts, And The Listener’s Demise

Various levels of across the board wage cuts – 10%? 15% ?- are being mooted for workers in some of our larger firms, in order to help the likes of Fletchers, Mediaworks etc survive the Covid-19 crisis. It is extraordinary that unions should be having ... More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Use Of Existing Drugs To Reduce The Effects Of Coronavirus

So now, we’re all getting up to speed with the travel bans, the rigorous handwashing and drying, the social distancing, and the avoidance of public transport wherever possible. Right. At a wider level…so far, the public health system has ... More>>


Gordon Campbell: On Oil Market And Regulation Crusades

Safe to say, Vladimir Putin did not expect the response he has received amidships from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Earlier, Russia chose to walk away from the OPEC talks in Vienna that were aimed at reaching an agreement on how to reduce world oil production (and protect oil prices) in the light of the fall in demand being caused by the coronavirus.

Binoy Kampmark: Strong Man Legacies: Burying Mubarak

Reviled strongmen of one era are often the celebrated ones of others. Citizens otherwise tormented find that replacements are poor, in some cases even crueller, than the original artefact. Such strongmen also serve as ideal alibis for rehabilitation ... More>>

Caitlin Johnstone: Humanity Is Making A Very Important Choice When It Comes To Assange

The propagandists have all gone dead silent on the WikiLeaks founder they previously were smearing with relentless viciousness, because they no longer have an argument. The facts are all in, and yes, it turns out the US government is certainly and undeniably working to exploit legal loopholes to imprison a journalist for exposing its war crimes. That is happening, and there is no justifying it... More>>

Gail Duncan: Reframing Welfare Report

Michael Joseph Savage, the architect of the 1938 Social Security Act, wouldn’t recognise today’s Social Security Act as having anything to do with the kind, cooperative, caring society he envisioned 80 years ago. Instead society in 2020 has been reduced ... More>>


Gordon Campbell: On 22 Short Takes About Super Tuesday

With obvious apologies to the Simpsons….Here’s my 22 short takes on the 14 Super Tuesday primaries that combined yesterday to produce a common narrative –Bernie Sanders NOT running away with the nomination, Joe Biden coming back from the dead, and the really, really rich guy proving to be really, really bad at politics...
