Former broadcaster and now freelance Communications Consultant Mike Bodnar. In between engagements he writes and is involved in video production.

The city's Globe Theatre is the focus of paranormal investigators. (10′49″)
British climber Simon Yates has written three books, the latest is called 'The Wild Within'. This book is not all about the climbing. It's a book about challenges, relationships and the spirit of discovery. (23′36″)
It's been nearly nine months since the cargo vessel Rena ran aground, spilling more than 350 tonnes of oil, much of which came ashore on Bay of Plenty beaches. The big question is whether there are any lasting impacts on the marine environment, and that's something that Chris Battershill from Waikato University and David Schiel from the University of Canterbury are studying as part of the Rena Recovery programme.

Your feedback, and a preview of the guests and topics on The Panel. (10′21″)
Topics - An Auckland youth advocate says figures showing Maori students are expelled from school at four times the rate of their European counterparts reflect "institutional racism" in education. The jury is considering its verdict in the trial of the man accused of the fatal shooting of Feilding farmer, Scott Guy. (24′19″)
Topics - The escalating cost of living finds two-income families increasingly worse-off than single-income families were a generation ago - and it is threatening to put them under. Beneficiaries who refuse to take a drug test, or who fail one, while applying for a job could have their benefit cut as part of the Government's next round of welfare reforms. (25′50″)
Produced by Jimmy Stewart, Chris Reid and Susan Baldacci
