Do violent extremists have common characteristics and backgrounds? Can we predict who among them will become violent? Patrick James is project manager for Profiles of Individual Radicalization in the United States (PIRUS) at the University of Maryland. The PIRUS dataset contains de-identified, individual-level information on the backgrounds, attributes, and radicalisation processes of nearly 1500 violent and non-violent extremists who adhere to far-right, far-left, or single issue ideologies in the United States, covering the years 1948 to 2013. Maria Armoudian spoke to James about the project and the characteristics that lead to violent extremism.

Helen Kelly- Together is a film screening in this years New Zealand International Film Festival. Helen Kelly is perhaps best described as a unionist, and a friend. She was well known for her work with the Pike River Mine families, as well as fighting for justice for those who lost family members in workplace accidents. Later in her life, she also became an accidental advocate for medical cannabis. Director Tony Sutorious was given access to Helen in the last year of her life, as she continued to do the work most important to her as well as undergoing cancer treatment. Lillian Hanly spoke with Tony this morning and started by asking how he gained that access.
