On Dear Science with Marcus Jones we discuss the trial and error that will be the process of ending Covid19 lockdowns, and also nanostructured alloys lighting the way to silicon-based photonics.

We have our regular Epidemic Response Committee notes and today the committee is hearing from a number of media outlets regarding the effect Covid19 has had on the media industry

Before we hear those notes we will hear some context from Felix who gives us a bit of an outline of the media landscape, particularly after the news yesterday broke that 15 percent of NZME staff would be made redundant.

It is officially the first day of term two so what is this looking like for teachers and parents and students? We hear from one organisation who is supplying the Ministry of Education with a number of learning resources. 

We have NZ First’s Fletcher Tabuteau on the show today speaking about unemployment figures from Treasury yesterday, wage subsidies supporting businesses and touching on the epidemic response committee that will hear from media outlets today.

We also have Green Party Co-Leader James Shaw today as Monday was a holiday, Sherry talks to him about tertiary support, resources given to rest homes, and a greener infrastructure response.
