1:15 South Dunedin residents still wanting answers

South Dunedin residents are still waiting for assurances about future proofing the area against adverse weather events nearly two years on from devastating flooding. A group of around 150 people were at a meeting last night organised by the Great South Dunedin Action group. They are looking to get some answers about plans for the area in the longer term which is still susceptible to flooding due to rising sea levels and land subsidence. Ray MacLeod is the chairman of the group and he speaks to Jesse about their ongoing concerns.

You can't choose your family but you can choose your friends. But sometimes friendships that are supposed to be a source of comfort and companionship can be fraught with miscommunication and misunderstanding instead.

Deborah Tannen, a linguistics professor at Georgetown University,  looks as the sometimes complicated friendships between women and the different ways women talk to each other.

Her new book is called You're the Only One I Can Tell This to: Women, Friendship, and the Power of Conversation.
