'You've Got the Love' - Jamie xx (featuring The xx).

1:15 Three Words: An Anthology of Aotearoa/NZ Women's Comics - Sarah Laing

We're talking about women in Aoteroa, making comics. Some are slick and professional, some are homemade and crafty. And some have now been compiled into the book, Three Words: An Anthology of Aotearoa/NZ Women's Comics. Sarah Laing is a writer, graphic designer and illustrator. And she's one third of the editing team, along with Rae Joyce and Indira Neville.

1:25 I am NOT Bacon - Carlie Jackson

Animal lover, Carlie Jackson, has penned a new children's book about factory farming pigs. I am NOT Bacon, is the story of Pedro the pig, who grows up on a factory farm. And his quest is to make humans understand that pigs have feelings too.

1:35 Critter Of The Week - Nicola Toki

Our Critter Of The Week isn't a critter at all. It's the Parapara tree, also known as the bird-catching tree. It catches insects, birds, and even more birds who come in to catch the little birds caught in it. It's like Roald Dahl's The Twits!

1:40 Insurance Settled - Sally Murphy

The Christchurch City Council has reached an agreement with its insurer for a 635 million dollar payout for earthquake damage. The Christchurch City Council has been in a protracted dispute with its insurers, Local Authority Protection Disaster Fund and Civic Assurance, over the value of the insurance payout due to earthquake damage to civic buildings. The council says the agreement is for all of the around 16 hundred above-ground assets claims and for business interruption loses.
