As you know, we have a semi-regular European segment, which has most recently been dedicated to developments on Brexit. Well today we’re doing something a little bit different, and talking bFM Correspondent Conor Knell. He’s in Northern Ireland, in the city of LondonDerry. If that name is familiar to you, it’s because there has been quite a lot of turmoil in the last few weeks. Firstly, there was the killing of journalist Lyra Mckee back in April. But there’s also been riots and poltiical instability, really throughout the whole country.

Conor is an expert on all of this, as opposed to Stewart who really wants to learn more. Stewart Sowman-Lund spoke to Connor this morning and asked him to run through what has actually been going on in Northern Ireland over the past while.

The government yesterday introduced the highly anticipated Zero Carbon Bill to parliament. The much-anticipated piece of legislation sets targets that could mean huge changes to New Zealand's agriculture sector.

It commits a "split target" – aiming to reduce all greenhouse gas emissions, aside from methane from our farming sector, to net zero by 2050.

Sid, a Core Team Lead at Generation Zero working on the Zero Carbon Act Campaign, joined host Stewart Sowman-Lund this morning to talk about his reaction to the government’s announcement.

Lillian starts the show by acknowledging the passing of Te Wharehuia Milroy.
