2:10 Rate Your Flat - Mauro Truglio
Disgruntled renters can now rate and review flats on a new global website, designed and launched in Palmerston North. Rateyourflat.com was launched last weekend, and is in the very early stages of development, but it's hoped the site will become the flatting equivilant of TripAdvisor or MenuMania. The site's creator Mauro Truglio hails from Rome, but now lives in Palmerston North with his girlfriend.
2.20 Back to the Bog - Katy Gosset
Katy Gosset is at one of the longest-running gigs in town - still pulling the punters in its new home.
Part five of 'Bishops' written and read by Mona Williams.
From the age of three, Mona Williams was brought up by her mother to revere British Guiana's exclusive girls' school 'Bishops' and its English values. But having gained entry as a scholarship student, Mona finds herself at odds with her teachers through her constant requests for them to include Guyanese literature, music, history and culture in the Anglophile curriculum.

A community garage sale in Upper Hutt is celebrating its 25th anniversary tomorrow.

Kate Turner organises the event.
4:06 The Panel - Megan Nicol Reed and Michael Deaker
Does it matter if you try and save on electricity costs by switching providers? The Consumer Institute says yes; we'll ask Molly Melhuish. The Government's Power Switch campaign doesn't appear to have brought prices down. Do we think the two fruitflies found in Whangarei are related? The claimed importance of the day's early sunlight in losing weight. Are we as bad as Africa when it comes to allowing tourists in to shoot big game in a non-sporting manner? The use of vitamins in staving off the flu - any use at all? The dangers identified in taking one particular vitamin supplement. And new Austrian research suggesting the vegetarians may be leading a healthier lifestyle but they're more at risk for depression and anxiety as well as some cancers. It's controversial - of course - so we'll try and find out how much credence it has.
