Are you ready to have your mind blown? Do you even know how to space travel? Are you ready to be immortal? Is this the future we're headed towards?! Dr. Michio Kaku, founder of String Theory & famed futurist, teaches Mikey about what's ahead; travelling on light beams, digitalising ourselves, and who needs flying sauces anymore...?

Hayden joins us to talk how to Get It to Te Papa, the quest for underappreciated cultural kiwi artifacts he deems to be deserving of New Zealand’s national museum in Wellington. So what are these underrated artifacts? We're talking Big Fresh’s dancing fruit & vegetables, the infamous flying Waitangi Dildo, and Auckland’s winking-eyed Santa. Even 95bFM's very own News Director, Lillian, chimes in with analogies of said artifacts.

Julia Croft joins Mike in studio to talk the latest theatre endeavour, Medusa. A beautiful portrayal of the Greek myth, to highlight the strength in female bodies, female violence and female rage. Nothing like an intimate performance fuelled by passion, right?! Get your tickets.

Tobbi and Louis join Mike in studio to talk mental health, the importance of sharing your feelings and being open when you're not okay. When we are living in an era with one of the highest rates of suicide and mental health, what can we do about it? How can we help each other? Mana For Men is one of the organisations that are here to help.

I Have Loved Me a Man: The Life and Times of Mika is launching today after a decade of workings and lucky for us (and you guys) Mika comes in to catch up with Mikey over the last ten years and the all changes he's experienced. Talking about Mika Haka and many of his other achievements, Mika brings the Breakfast show an abundance of positivity and memories from his world. What a pleasure, Mika!

After working on The Hobbit, Jack Nicol presents his first film, She Shears, a documentary about the kiwi women who competitively shear sheep. Jack's film follows the struggles and successes of the women atheletes who shear as many as 400 sheep in one day (...just think about that for a second). Who doesn't love watching a inspirational story about successful women? Yay!

Five years later, and he returns with another studio album, Rhian Sheehan chats to Mike about his newest release, A Quiet Divide, and his upcoming shows. Shows that are filled with glorious sounds, lights and a performance that will blow you away if you're lucky enough to head along. Composing albums and working with Weta Workshop, Rhian, what can't you do?!

Dr. Panteá Farvid and Tara Pond catch up with Mike about Tara's research around the treatment of the bisexual label and how our society needs to be more inclusive. They discuss the idea of the choosing a side or a team and what that means when we are all just humans. If you identify as a woman and are attracted to many genders, you can take the survey here to join the research!

We're honoured to have special guest, Bob Bolton, in studio this morning. Bob's son, Daniel, holds a special place in the 95bFM firmament - however, is probably better known to listeners as enigmatic musical figure Darcy Clay. On the release's twentieth anniversary, Sony is reissuing Darcy Clay's Jesus I Was Evil, and Bob is gracious enough to join us to share stories of the EP's legacy, past and present.

What if we could change genetics to make people run faster? Or become less violent? Woah, but is this even ethical? Luckily, Professor of Philosophy, Tim Dare, joins Tess and Sarah in studio to answer all their many questions about this strange reality we're facing. Science fiction or real-life? Head to LATE 2018: CRISPR - Utopian or Dystopian? Post-nature at the museum to find out.
