The Panel with Bernard Hickey and Nicky Pellegrino (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:32 pm on 19 May 2015

How can a life form without a brain be intelligent? What the Panelists Nicky Pellegrino and Bernard Hickey have been thinking about. The Flag Roadshow is in Wanaka today. We talk to local radio station manager Mike Regal about what sort of interest there's been in the town. The kind of earthquakes which triggered the Japanese and Boxing Day tsunamis have also occurred here. Does the idea of a "megathrust" quake make you think more about being prepared for the big one? A New Zealander has invented a glow-in-the-dark coating that can be applied to just about anything. Hamish Scott says it has safety applications. Does it matter that Rebel Wilson may have lied about how old she is? The power of nostalgia encapsulated in the hugely popular TV series Mad Men. And it's now over.
