2:10 The Solo Yachtie - Stanley Paris - It's nearly two years now since we had our next guest on.
Back at the beginning of 2012, former Otago Boys High alumnus Doctor Stanley Paris was a 74 year old with a 64ft yacht, and a mission: to become the oldest person to sail around the world solo.
"Just another crazy kid with a dream", as Leonard Cohen would say. Well, Stanley is 76 now, and he and "Kiwi Spirit"-his Bruce Farr-designed yacht, are just about ready to go. He's hoping to make it from Bermuda all the way back again in 149 days or fewer. Stanley Paris talks with Jim Mora from Florida.

4:06 Michele A'Court and Jeremy Elwood are on The Panel today - Auckland ratepayers forking out for staff parties, and the suspicion that the trumpeted low rates rises in the Queen City are in fact high rates hikes disguised. Could we improve our traffic flows by 40% and cut down journey times in big cities by 25% simply by having smarter traffic lights?What's with all the people on long-term sickness benefits for addictions and are we spending our compassion money in the wrong area? Is it the quad bikes that are dangerous on farms or is a combination of their mis-use, and also dope smoking?
