1:20 Forgotten Victims - Elaine Lacey

Five years on from the Canterbury Earthquakes there is concern over a group of so-called forgotten victims - adolescent boys. Anti violence group Aviva say they have seen a rise in violent behaviour from this group. Elaine Lacey from Aviva joins me  

1:25 'Rat Casino' - Michael Barrus

Scientists from Canda's University of British Columbia have built a 'rat casino', to investigate addictive behaviours. Catharine Winstanley and Michael Barrus are from the university's Department of Psychology. And they've been looking at how lights and noise affect gambling and risk-taking.

1:35 Electric Motorbike - Sytse Tacoma

Our next guest has built a fully electric motorcycle, by hand. Sytse Tacoma designed and built the bike in Blenheim. It will do 0 - 100km/h in 4 secs, it has a 120km range, it charges in 3 hours, all for $1.50 per charge.

3:10 Adam Stelzner

There's just plain crazy and there's the right kind of crazy. A career as a NASA engineer seemed crazy to  Adam Stelzner when he was an average student, failing geometry, playing bass in a band. But that changed when he found his passion in the stars. Landing a rover safely on Mars seemed crazy too, but Stelzner led the team that put Curiosity on the Red Planet. He talks about the right stuff the engineers on the ground need to pull off big projects in space in his new book, "The Right Kind of Crazy: A True Story of Teamwork, Leadership, and High-Stakes Innovation."

3:35 Voices

It’s a disease of poverty. There are about 5 million people affected by leprosy around the globe. Lynda Chanwai-Earle and Justin Gregory bring us a story about high profile Asian New Zealanders in Bangladesh bringing aid to leprosy sufferers. The group of 6 are part of New Zealand’s Leprosy Mission and they’re there to give back to their home country.
