Wendy Allison, director of Know Your Stuff NZ, runs a team of volunteers who aren't interested in judging if/when/why a person may choose to use recreational drugs - they just want to give them as much information as possible in order to reduce harm and keep party goers safe. Wendy's team offer free drug testing at festivals around the country, spotting 'extra ingredients' ranging from the harmless to the potentially fatal. So, how does it all work? What are they finding? Are there roadblocks to the process? How can we help?

Steve Hathaway is an educational filmmaker and underwater camera operator whose camerawork features in the first episode of the new Sir David Attenborough narrated BBC documentary series, Blue Planet II. (I _knooow_, right?) Steve's work contains footage, the likes of which has never been seen before, of underwater mammals just hangin' out an' that. Fact! If Mike and Sarah can only contain their buzzing excitement, then maybe we'll get some extra facts out of the man as well...

Henry, Lewis and Ethan, also known as the mighty Alien Weaponry, are currently busy putting in the hours at the recording studio before a summer of touring and a February release. But they still had time to drop in and school Mikey on the elements, remind us all of the importance of mana whenua, call Don Brash some names, and spread rumours about each other's dick size.

Even when your album's about to drop, you've still gotta make time for the important parts of being a band, yeah? Yeah.
Catch them this New Year's HERE.

Whakarongo, ngā tamariki! Prepare yr earholes, bolt down any ornaments - there's a new bag of funk in town. Co-compiled by our guest Alan Perrott with music fiend John Baker, Vostok's new 'Heed the Call!' compilation is seventeen of the choicest cuts of Aotearoa funk, soul and disco picked from the fertile decade between 1973 - 1983. And who's that on the line from Sydney? Oh, y'know, just cover star and double compilation feature Mark Williams. Ka mutu pea!
