Frances then spoke with Shelley O’Sullivan, an educational psychologist about the month-long strike of psychologists coming to an end.
Next up, Zazi spoke with the leader of the Green Party and Minister of Climate Change, James Shaw, about New Zealand passing a world-first Climate reporting legislation.
Then, we had our regular segment Dear Science with AUT Professor Allan Blackman. This week Frances and Allan are talked about ammonia synthesis in a ball mill, vikings in North America and what happened in the world of nylon on October 27th in 1938…
And finally Zazi had her regular talk with Act Party’s Brooke van Velden, talking about the COVID traffic light system and the vaccine mandate for workplaces requiring a certificate of vaccination for entry.
