Doctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford, Paula Larsson, has written an article titled The inherent racism of anti-vaxx movements.  Paula is currently researching the history of vaccination, and in this article writes about how vaccinations came to be, where anti-vaxx movements stemmed from, and what the repercussions of these movements mean for our future health and safety.

With the Government urging everyone in Aotearoa to get the vaccine, Zazi thought it would be interesting to talk to Paula Larsson about anti-vaxx movements. Yesterday afternoon they discussed Paula’s insights, as well as her views, on the racism within anti-vaxx organisations.  

Zazi began by asking Paula to talk about her research, and how she came to write her article.

A few weeks ago the New Zealand Film Commission established a Regional Film Office in Whanganui to stimulate economic growth, support local film industry talent and potentially help grow Whanganui as a regional screen production hub. With two feature productions filmed there at the beginning of this year, and a large percentage of the population working in the screen production industry, the establishment of the office is a big step in growing Whanganui as its own screen production hub. On the Wire this week, Frances caught up with Emma Budgen, the Strategic Lead for the Creative Industries and Arts at Whanganui and Partners, they talked about what the Film Office’s role is and what it means for creative practitioners and the wider community.

Today on the Tuesday Wire, we are presenting a Best of Level 4 Lockdown show! 

It has been five weeks to the day that the 95bFM News Team started producing news and current affairs content from home. So today, News and Editorial Director Jemima Huston thought she would highlight some of the best Level 4 lockdown pieces created by each person that contributes to our daily current affairs show.

On the show Jemima plays snippets of interviews played on the Wire over the last five weeks. We’ll go over and update our pieces on Conversion Therapy Practices Bill submissions, a book called "Protest! Shaping Aotearoa", how to entice native birds into your garden, the Green Party's thoughts on David Seymour tweeting the Māori vaccination code, the impact of lockdown on climate change, the Canadian election, the latest Afghanistan crisis and the flooding event in West Auckland. 

A massive thank you needs to go to our Wire contributors for their work over this time. Thank you Jessica Hopkins, Louis Macalister, Joe Wickins, Zazi Hewlett, Frances Wright, Justin Wong, Conor Head-McCarthy, Ilena Shadbolt and Noah Ferguson-Dudding. 

You can hear any of the pieces played in this show in full on the Wire page on the 95bFM website.
