Wed 20 Dec 2017

For the final Wednesday Wire of 2017, we have AUT's professor Allan Blackmanin studio again, talking about narrowly escaping nuclear war, how to drink your whisky, a university experiment gone (really) bad, and how heavy meterials get created in outer space. 

NZ First's Tracey Martin briefly wraps up the year with her highs and lows for 2017.

And as it is the final Wednesday Wire of 2017, we are playing a few of the best interviews of the year: 

Our former host and news director Ximena Smith reflects on how the media should go about reporting on Donald Trump. 

Ximena also discusses Māori-run prisons with prison abolitionist Sina Brown-Davis.

Still honouring Ximena's legacy, we play an interview she did with AUT's Gender & Diversity Research group member Katherine Ravenswood, regarding questions Jacinda Ardern faced when she became leader of the Labour party back in August - questions about the future of her womb, not the future of the country.

Finally, we are giving Reuben McLaren a bit of the spotlight for his great reporting on the cloudy world of e-cigarettes (and let's be honest, some great roasting - clink on the link for the whole falling out).

Mack interviews Anne-Marie Brady about China's 'magic weapons' to influence New Zealand.

Lastly, India speaks to Oxfam's Rachael Le Mesurier about global tax avoidance and the 'paradise papers'.

Train workers in Wellington will strike for 24 hours starting early Thursday morning, over longstanding contract conditions.

This will be the largest industrial action taken on the railways of Wellington since 1994 and up to 30,000 rail passengers are likely to be effected.

This is not the first strike in recent times over this issue, with a two hour strike having taken place in during October this year.

Rail and Maritime Transport Union General Secretary, Wayne Butson, told Radio New Zealand that industrial action was the only alternative after months of negotiations..

Reuben McLaren spoke to Wayne Butson to find out more.

This Day in History takes us back to 1971, which saw a massacre in Bangladesh carried out by the Pakistani military, with the support of paramilitary forces.

This was the culmination of tensions following the partition of the Indian sub-continent by departing British colonial authorities, which had been exacerbated by Cold War geopolitics.

This Day in History uses news footage which reflects contemporary attitudes, these do not necessarily reflect the views of 95bFM.
