Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Friday 26 February 2016
1:15 Political Protest or Violence? - Dr Bryce Edwards
Physical assults against our politians seem to be on the increase, and our next guest has been thinking about how we protest in New Zealand. Recent incidents like the sex toy thrown at Steven Joyce, mud thrown at Gerry Brownlee, and the Prime Minister being glitter-bombed, have created debate about the nature of political protest in New Zealand. Lecturer in politics at the University of Otago, Dr Bryce Edwards, has been thinking about what these things mean.
1:25 The World's Most Continuous High Five, Perhaps - Maria Swinburn
We're off to Greymouth, where 14 Greymouth schools, dozens of businesses and hundreds of members of the public have gathered at Rugby Park. And they've been on a mission, to set the world record, for a continuous high five. One of the organisers is Maria Swinburn, from the charity Parfitt Kids.
1:30 Critter Of The Week - Nicola Toki
Time now for our critter of the week - our weekly celebration of a native species whose survival is threatened but whose charisma is questionable. Nicola Toki, DOC's threatened species ambassador, finds a new species each week for us to discover. This week it's the Hutton's shearwater.

She's a woman who's started a food revolution of sorts, in her backyard. She's started a new cafe and cookery school in Christchurch. But it's quite different from what you'd expect. It's based on healthy organic living and traditional Māori foods. Kākano is based around 240 square metres of organically grown food gardens, that are a focal point of its community activities. Jade Temepara is the woman beind the new enterprise.
