E tuituia ana te raarangi uiui o te rangi nei e ngaa kaupapa ohanga. This Sunday's interviews are connected by themes of economy as Heidi catches up with Hannah Valentine, Hana Pera-Aoake and Tao Wells in succession. Hannah Valentine's show 'Interference' at Visions gallery takes Argo Floats - devices for collecting data on our our oceans for the purpose of healing them, but do they avoid doing their own kinds of damage? Hana Pera-Aoake chat's with Heidi about David Graeber's mysterious sudden passing, the arbitrariness of the monetary legal systems that the whole world allows to run it, and we put a call out for her initiative under Kei te Pai Press for book donations for the OOtautahi Women's Prison. Drop any great books you want to share with women who've wound up imprisoned to Enjoy Gallery, Blue Oyster or Strange Goods by the end of the week please! Finally Tao Wells continues the kaupapa of questioning why we've all accepted the current status quo by telling us a little about his social practice and thinking. There's barely time to scratch the surface here, but the skin is broken, it's up to listeners to rakuraku haere - keep scratching it. The world could be so different.
