Laura Kvigstad and producer Louis Laws bring you bFM's daily news & current affairs show, including Neighbourhood Watch with Radio Adelaide's Zoe Kounadis, This Day in History with Ben Goldson and a chat with National Party MP Denise Lee.
The Wire is 95bFM's long-running daily bastion of news, current affairs and views through the bFM lens.
Laura Kvigstad is a student at the University of Auckland, and fell in love with journalism in her second year of studying. She was born in Taupo but raised in Canada (hence the accent) and every New Years she takes a road trip to discover a new spot. Laura enjoys a good political debate and hearing various perspectives people have on the world.
Cities in Aotearoa need improvement. Urban Advisory is a group aimed at implementing diversity, new design and new living expectations to affect real change in how we shape our urban centres. Lillian Hanly spoke to Greer O'Donnell from the Urban Advisory about their vision for Aotearoa.
Last week Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced that the government would be canning the discussions around implementing a capital gains tax. Auckland Action Against Poverty coordinator, Ricardo Menendez March, says this is disappointing. Jemima speaks to Ricardo about how the government's decision will affect New Zealanders.
This week on the Wednesday Wire Lillian and Sherry were away so Jemima and Lachlan held down the fort. On the show, AUT senior lecturer Marcus Jones was in studio for Dear Science where he talked pig brains, genetic height and sexual harrassment in university science departments. Lillian spoke to Urban Advisory's Greer O'Donnell about shaping Aotearoa's cities. Finally, Jemima talked to Ricardo Menendez March from Auckland Action Against Poverty about the government scrapping a capital gains tax.
How are non-governmental organisations, social movements and transnational networks working to combat climate change globally and locally? Maria Armoudian is joined by Astrid Carrapatoso to discuss this. Astrid has published studies on climate change policy implemented by both local, state, national and international governments.
Intermittently on The Wire, we have a theme for the week, this week’s theme for worry week is War, Imperialism and the Military industrial complex, so I thought it was fitting to talk to Auckland Peace Action about their upcoming Picnic for Peace, what it is and what it is reflective of.
The full show podcast for the beautiful mess that is the Tuesday Wire. Today we cover ANZAC day and Aotearoa's military, the new environmental report and the international week of rebellion. A big thank you to every one who made this show happen.
