1:15 Major shortage of plumbers 

Getting a plumber, especially in Auckland, is going to become increasingly difficult. The region is predicted to have a shortfall of over 600 plumbers within 2 years - a 60 percent undersupply.

The Master Plumber's Association says that's because too few plumbers are taking on apprentices as it has become too costly and difficult.

Its chief executive, Greg Wallace explains what the problem is.

1:25 Timaru wants a new slogan

The district is getting a new slogan and welcome signs. And the council is throwing $120,000 behind the project. Timaru District Mayor, Damon Odey joins us.

1:35 Australia adds 49 species to threatened and endangered lists

Australia has added 49 species to its threatened and endangered lists last week. But the move comes without an increase in funding to protect the flora and fauna.

The federal government's list of threatened species, made under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, includes nine that are critically endangered. Jesse speaks with Australian Conservation Foundation campaigner, Jess Abrahams.

2:20 The Great New Zealand Album - Second Hand Planet by Opshop

Our Great New Zealand Album today was the second released by the band once known as G.S.T.  It included two top ten hits, one of which became the most played on New Zealand radio in 2008.  Of course they'd had a name change by that time and were our most popular band.

To help us remember "Second Hand Planet" by Opshop is lead singer and principal composer Jason Kerrison

3:10 "Modern mother's treat their babies like little gods"

Modern mothers treat their babies like little gods says Nanny to the stars Rachel Waddilove. Now 68, she is a mother of three and grandmother of six, and trained a Dr Barnardo’s nursery college in the 1960s. She has a particular issue with attachment parenting, which she says teaches babies bad habits and can increase sleep problems.  

3:30 Our Changing World: Type 2 Diabetes

Why is it that Type 2 Diabetes is more common in Māori and Pasifica people, while diseases such as cystic fibrosis and multiple sclerosis are almost unheard of? Geoff Chambers, a molecular geneticist at Victoria University, thinks he's got the answer

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show
