2:10 The World's Biggest Motorcycle Rally - Rennie McRae
To Buffalo Wyoming, to be precise where a posse of kiwis and aussies are en route to the biggest motorcycle rally in the world.
They climbed aboard their Harley's in Colorado, and have ridden across the great expanse of America, through New Mexico, Nevada and Utah with a brief stop in Las Vegas along the way.
Tonight they've made camp in Wyoming, and tomorrow morning they'll ride into South Dakota for the 73rd Sturgis motorcycle rally, where they will be joined by hundreds of thousands of bikers from all over the world.\
2:20 Get Home Safe App - Boyd Peacock
Fiordland man Boyd Peacock was out cycling one day when he rode past a big cliff.
The thought struck Boyd that he wouldn't want to go off that cliff, and then came another thought: who would know if he did? Thus the seed was sown for Get Home Safe: a smartphone app that tracks your movements, and lets a nominated person know if you don't make it home. Boyd Peacock, inventor of Get Home Safe talks with Jim Mora.
2:30 Reading - On the first of July 2001, actor and writer Owen Scott woke in London to be told that his older brother John had been murdered in Fiji along with his partner, Greg Schrivener. Our 2.30 story for the next few weeks is Owen's very personal account of the aftermath of that murder.

3:10 Feature Author - Dark Paradise by Robert Macklin
Aren't remote South Pacific islands supposed to be paradise? Perhaps, from a distance, Norfolk Island looks an idyllic, peaceful, beautiful place lush with tall pines. But look closer and that facade is shattered. For all of the 220 years we have known it, Norfolk's story has been one of darkness, pain, rage and horror. Robert Macklin, author of the bestselling SAS Sniper, tells the vivid, bewitching story of how a unique lifestyle and culture evolved amongst the almost two thousand inhabitants.
3:30 Wind Farm Noise and the Power of Suggestion - Fiona Crichton - People living near wind farms often complain of a range of health symptoms ranging from sleep disturbance and headaches to nausea and heart palpitations. But could public discussion of health effects actually be triggering the complaints?
University of Auckland PhD student Fiona Crichton thinks so, and tells Ruth Beran how she's using the power of suggestion in studies of people's reactions to wind turbine noise.
4:06 Duncan Webb and Steve McCabe are on The Panel as we discuss Fonterra, the strange timeline of disclosure and the likely import of this for our international reputation and for our dairy receipts. "Stand Up Otago!" thunders the Otago Daily Times at the weekend, railing against a lack of any regional development in NZ; we'll discuss that. The movement that's begun in Australia and spreading to Europe against people who think it's fine to be on their mobile phones. Are you guilty of phubbing people? The privacy of communications now that it's been revealed that the police had a look at what Bradley Ambrose was telling his lawyer. Having to get a license to smoke if you're a teenager.
