On Dear Science with AUT’s Allan Blackman we are going to kick off the year looking at some anniversaries, as well as what happens when a science paper is retracted.

We have a chat with Rod Oram that Lillian actually did at the end of last year, just after the government’s big infrastructure announcement. We didn’t get a chance to play it then so will have a listen today, but it’s a good chance to refresh our memories at the start of this big political year of the government's spending intentions prior to the more specific announcement that will be made early this year.

Felix has a piece today on the ever-expanding waitlist for state housing, he talked to Ricardo menendez March from Auckland Action Against Poverty about this ongoing housing crisis.

Felix also spoke with Forest & Bird about their naming of 2020 as the “year of the seabird” and the need for greater protection of our seabirds.
