2:10 The Tokoroa Pie Cart - Lindsay Neil - If you're in the market for a slice of NZ history, there's an auction on Trade Me that could be just the thing for you. Tokoroa's historic pie cart is up for sale, with the reserve met at two thousand and ninety nine dollars, and just one day left to go. The legendary pie cart has fed South Waikato locals for over 50 years now, and the auctioneers say she's got plenty of life in her yet. But what sort of investment would a pie cart make in this day and age? Lindsay Neill is one of the authors of 'The Great New Zealand Pie Cart' and an expert on the pie-cart culture of 'cafe de kerb'.

2:20 The Great Pacific Garbage Patch - Lucy Burns of BBC Witness - We all know it's there now, and it's so big we assume it may have been noticed long ago, but in fact it was 1997. What are we talking about? the discovery by an American yachtsman of an area in the Pacific Ocean full of plastic waste.

2:30 Reading - In today's episode of 'Deep Beyond The Reef' by Owen Scott,  the funeral of two murder victims is barely over in Fiji when allegations about their behavior begin to surface in the media.

3:45 The Pre-Panel Show - Noelle McCarthy - On the day when Kiwi, Lorde makes music history by being the first female solo singer to make #1 on the Billboard alternative music charts for 17 years, here's a little blast from the past.

What the Government's announcing today about child abuse, the shortage of foster care parents as some of our vulnerable children get shunted from pillar to post; What does 100% Pure actually mean? The Advertising Standards Authority has decided it's not really a statement about our environment, but it's being asked to think again.
