Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm for Tuesday 5 April 2016

1:10 First Song

'Hurtin' - Margo Price. 

1:15 Social Media Addiction - Philipa Thornton

FOMO, FOBO, and NoMo are among a growing list of acronyms relating to people's fear of not being able to check their social media feed, and it has psychologists scrambling to keep up. Philipa Thornton is a New Zealand Clinical psychologist based in Sydney, and she's speaking about online addictions at the Australia-New Zealand addictions conference in Queensland next month.

1:25 The History Of Human Sacrifice - Joseph Watts

A new research paper looking into human sacrifice in nearly one hundred cultures, including pre-European New Zealand, has just been published. The study looked at Austronesian cultures, and delved into how equal and heirarchical a culture was and the role religion played, in relation to human sacrifice. It was published the journal Nature, and was a collaboration between researchers from the University of Auckland's School of Psychology, the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, and Victoria University. Joseph Watts is a doctoral candidate at the University of Auckland, and he's the lead author of the study.

1:35 Trust Crisis - Prof Michael Macaulay

Is there a crisis of distrust in New Zealand? A new study commissioned by Victoria University's Institute for Governance and Policy Studies has found that New Zealanders have little trust in government, and that trust has decreased quite dramatically over the last three years. The Institute's Director, Michael Macaulay says the rankings offer a snapshot of the current political climate, which is typified by low voter turn out and a public largely disengaged with politics. 

1:40 Favourite Album

2:10 Night Mayor on Cuba Street - Jason Krupp

You'd be hard pressed to describe Wellington's recent CubaDupa festival as anything but an outstanding success. Two days of street food, live music, street artists, and throngs of happy attendees. If such a complaint were to be made, it would probably focus on the number of drunk people wandering the streets late at night, and the 'menace' they represent. Jason Krupp is a research fellow at the New Zealand Initiative business think tank and he's been looking into the ways 'vibrant' cities elsewhere in the world handle the tension between nightlife and community concerns. 

2:20 Classic New Zealand Album

Love & Disrespect - Elemeno P with Dave Gibson. 

3:10 Feature Interview

Tim Urban is an accomplished entrepreneur and one of the most popular writers and illustrators on the Internet. Elon Musk is even a fan of his blog, Wait But Why. He graduated from Harvard, even went to University in New Zealand and got fired by Donald Trump on the Apprentice, all of which is truly exceptional given his life long habit of putting things off to the last minute. Tim Urban is a master procrastinator. He's spent years trying to figure out why he ignores the "to do" list even undergoing an MRI. He has found strategies that help and shares them on his blog and in a recent TED talk.

3:30 Our Changing World

Hector’s dolphins are one of the world’s smallest dolphins, and they have been the focus of a 32-year study by the University of Otago’s Liz Slooten and Steve Dawson. Alison Ballance joins the pair on their research boat in Akaroa Harbour to hear how they use photos and natural markings to identify the dolphins.
