1:15 Snow blankets parts of the South Island

Heavy snowfall in South Island has closed some roads, disrupted flights and cut power in parts of Central Otago.

In Wanaka, and Lake Hawea it's a winter wonderland. Rachel Brown, a Wanaka community board member and high country farmer Angus Rowley from Lake Hawea Station tell us what the snow's like where they are.

1:25 In Defence of Conspiracy Theories

We hear a lot about the dangers of conspiracy theories, especially if they cause people to make poor or dangerous decisions. But are they all bad?

David Coady from the University of Tasmania has books and articles on conspiracy theories, and reckons they deserve a bit more credit than they get

Snoring has led to divorces,  murderous thoughts, and many sleepless nights!  More than a quarter of men are snorers, and just under ten percent of women snore regularly.

Dr Andy Davies is a sleep and respiratory physician at the Bowen Specialist Centre, and he joins us to explain why people snore, whether it’s a worry, and how to stop it.
