Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Tuesday 2 February 2016

1:10 First Song

'Somebody' - Mi-Sex.  

1:15 Iowa Caucuses - Aaron Blake

It's heating up in Iowa, and presidential hopefuls have been making last minute pitches to party members today. The caucus process is the first formal step, in the process to elect the Democratic and Republican candidates for the presidency. Aaron Blake is the managing editor of The Fix, the Washington Post's top political blog.

1:25 Iowa Caucuses - Jane Patterson   

RNZ political editor Jane Patterson is in Des Moines. Jane is at the Democrat caucus at the State Historical Building.

1:35 Therapy Research - Dr Mei Williams

Psychologists at Massey University are investigating whether a new approach to therapy which has been successful in England, could be adapted to New Zealand to help thousands suffering depression and less severe mental health conditions. It's called Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dr Mei Williams from Massey School of Psychology, is here to tell us about it.

1:40 Favourite Album

Rochelle Dalziel has chosen the soundtrack to the (2001) movie De-Lovely. 

2:10 Lawyers Gender Balance - Ursula Cheer

This year marks the first time there will be equal numbers of men and women lawyers.
Women law graduates have outnumbered men for more than a decade, and the Law Society says those practicing will soon overtake men. But, while 60 percent of law graduates are women, the Law Society says less than 40 percent become partners. 

2:20 Great NZ Concerts - The Eagles (2015)

Today, on the Great New Zealand Concert, a band which included New Zealand on their concert itinerary four times in their 40 year career.  This is no ordinary band though:  They've won six Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, had six Number One Albums, one of which was the biggest selling album of the 20th century.  They amassed total record sales in excess of 150 million units, enough to make them the fifth highest-selling American band in history.

3:10 Media Circus - Kim Goldman

Kim Goldman found herself in a situation she never could have imagined when her brother Ron Goldman was murdered and American football star OJ Simpson  went on trial. She was just 23 years old in June 1994 and in the middle of a media frenzy.  She's now a victims' advocate who helps other families who suddenly find themselves grieving for a terrible loss in the media spotlight.  She's spoken to families who have suffered loss in high profile cases like Debra Tate whose sister Sharon was one of the Charles Manson murder victims.  Kim Goldman talks about her book, Media Circus: A Look at Private Tragedy in the Public Eye.

3:30 Our Changing World

Bitterns boast some of the best bird camouflage around but it hasn't been enough to prevent them becoming nationally endangered. Alison Ballance heads out in a kayak onto Lake Hatuma, in Hawke's Bay, with Massey University PhD student Emma Williams, to hear why she has given her booming birds names such as Prince Tui Teka, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra.

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show

What the world is talking about with Jesse Mulligan, Jim Mora and Julie Moffett.
