Navigation for Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan

Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Tuesday 15 March 2016

1:10 First Song

'Sittin' Here' - St Germain.

1:17 The Cacophony Project - Grant Ryan

The sound of the local dawn chorus is set to become louder, if Grant Ryan has anything to do with it. He's invented a Cacophonometer... or simply put, a bit of hardware that's in the bush, that records sounds and sends the recordings to the cloud. It's part of The Cacophony Project and it's aim is to help create a healthier ecosystem.

1:27 Sushi! - Endo Kazutoshi and Nic Watt

One of the world's most celebrated sushi chefs is in New Zealand.  Endo Kazutoshi is recreating his acclaimed sushi at an series of events at the award winning MASU restaurant in Auckland.

1:34 New Zealand Festival - Lynn Freeman

The Modern Maori Quartet, work by a dance legend, small metal objects and a booze soaked rock 'n' roll cabaret are all coming up in the third and final week of the New Zealand Festival in Wellington. Standing Room Only presenter Lynn Freeman can't wait!

1:40 Favourite Album

Watch Your Step - Ted Hawkins. 

2:10 Women Behind The Law - Dr Rhonda Powell

The University of Canterbury is holding a seminar called Women Behind The Law. And its aim is to talk about the role of women in cases, and how they have influenced the development of law in New Zealand. One of the speakers is Dr Rhonda Powell, who's a lecturer at the University of Canterbury School of Law.

2:20 Great New Zealand Concerts - Simon and Garfunkel's Old Friends Tour (2009)

During a six decades long career, Simon & Garfunkel recorded just five studio albums but each was laced with hit singles. The duo came to New Zealand in 1983 and again, 26 years later, in June 2009.  Today we remember their Classic New Zealand Concert of 7 years ago.

3:10 Feature Interview - Somini Sengupta

They say you can never go home again. But after 30 years away, Somini Sengupta, who was born in Calcutta,  returned to India to be the  New Delhi bureau chief for The New York Times.  She says the country was barely recognisable from the one  she and her family left in 1975 when they immigrated to California. It is a country trying to reconcile its past where sex and caste determine destiny, and its future. 

3:30 Our Changing World

Koi carp are a significant problem in some Waikato Lakes, and Waikato Regional Council's Bruno David has come up with a solution that not only removes the unwanted introduced fish from the lakes, but does something useful with the bodies. Alison joins Bruno at a fish trap and he shows her how the fish are caught, dispatched and then fed into a biodigestor to produce 'carp-uccino' and fertiliser pellets that are then used to give native plantings a boost.

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show
