We are also joined by Radio Adelaide's Zoe Kounadis to discuss the week in Australian News. This week we discuss the yet again proposed closure of Uluru to climbers, as well as the Raise the Rate campaign looking to raise benefits and reform the Australian Newstart system.  

And finally, Andrew Little joins us again this week just as he is about to step aboard an aeroplane. Lillian Hanly speaks to him about the Crime Fund, Drones and road safety changes. Minister Little is however heading to Whangarei tomorrow to visit the District Court, so Lillian starts by asking what such a visit involves.

Thank you to all who made this show happen, the people who spoke to us and of course, you, the listener. 

I/V w/ Rihi Te Nana from #HandsOffOurTamariki: July 17, 2019

Hands Off our Tamariki is a group who has called for a halt to the removal of tamariki Māori from whānau Māori at the hands of the state. Following the release of the Newsroom investigative documentary showing an attempted uplift by Oranga Tamariki of a near newborn baby from their mother in a Hawkes Bay hospital, this longstanding issue has come to the forefront of public scrutiny. The investigation looked at the procedure of the uplift and asked whether this was the best possible process of taking a child. Since the investigation was published, a number of inquiries into Oranga Tamariki’s processes have been called, and the public has condemned the actions of the Ministry formerly known as Child Youth and Family. Over the weekend, Whānau Ora called a hui for Māori to meet and decide on the terms of reference for a Māori led inquiry into Oranga Tamariki. Rihi Te Nana is a community researcher with a background in counselling, therapy and working with whānau. Rihi is also one of the organisers for Hands Off our Tamariki and was representing the Hands Off our Tamariki group at the hui along with Paora Crawford Moyle. Lillian spoke with Rihi about the wider implications of state intervention in Māori whānau, and started by asking what this hui was about.

Hands Off Our Tamariki are presenting their letter to parliament on the 30th July.

As part of Sherry’s investigation into New Zealand’s process with Waste Management, she spoke with Derek Lander from Flight Plastics, one of New Zealand’s only PET recycling plants. Currently, type one PET, clear soft drink bottles, and type 2 HDPE, milk bottles, are recycled domestically. The other 5 types of plastics, including mixed, are sent off shore to be processed. However with the tightening of China's and South East Asian countries intake of offshore waste, active solutions for domestic waste management is all the more pressing. Sherry begins by asking Derek about the organisation Flight Plastics and how PET plastic is recycled.

Plastic recycling is only one of the solutions to reducing the environmental impact of waste. While Sherry was looking into solutions to recycling other forms of plastic, she stumbled upon the Taranaki road and Northland fence posts made from recycled plastic. And while these are exciting developments, the question remains on the effect of micro plastics as these products breakdown...

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) guidelines that allow male-to-female transgender athletes to compete in the women’s category at the elite level has raised significant debate since being introduced in 2015. Today I spoke to bio-ethicists from the University of Otago, Dr. Taryn Knox, Associate Professor Lynley Anderson and Professor Alison Heather about some research they conducted around the topic. Dr. Knox and Associate Professor Anderson gave some context, while Professor Heather spoke on the science of the research. Admittedly, I have very little knowledge about transgender athletes and indeed, transgender issues in general which is why I felt compelled to conduct this interview in an atempt to find out more. However, when talking to the researchers it became apparent that they could not comment on the social implications their research might have. For this reason, I have cut much of the content simply because keeping it in would add little to the conversation. Two separate interviews were conducted on two separate phone calls, which is why there may be some overlap in relation to the questions I asked. Stay tuned for a follow up on this topic in the following weeks, because the interview primarily explores the science behind transgender athletes, but does not address the issue of identity adequately enough.

And finally, this week on Green Desk, Mitch moves away from typical climate crises talk and
discusses a new report with author Dr Erica Todd who has recently released a study which
allows us to understand how certain species of fish are able to undergo sex changes at a
genetic level. Mitch and Dr Todd discuss the physical and genetic changes of fish
that undergo sex changes, raising the question about its potential application in other areas.
Mitch began by asking Dr Todd about the process and just how many species of fish are
able to undergo this change.
