15:45 Your feedback, and a preview of the guests and topics on The Panel.
16:07 Topics - the Inspector General of Intelligence and Security has become the latest public servant to weigh in on matters pertaining to spying. The 3News/Reid Research poll out tonight, and the hint is it's not good for National. Louise Nicholas is in the news advocating for rape trials to be judge-only. The anti-rape campaigner says jurors bring their own biases and and are influenced by "rape myths" when deciding on sex offence cases.
16:34 Topics - the USA is one of the world's happier countries, but it's not quite the happiest, and interestingly its in America, from Central America up, where people report being most content. Are 'inspired' teachers the key to getting young people into tertiary education? Not enough students are being inspired by teachers to aim high, according to a survey by ASG Education Programs. And that survey has occasioned comment. We talk about speed limits - a new one is being mooted, 110km/h on big zoomy roads. And now a quiet moment of consideration for the Kiwi jihadist who wants to come home.
