The measles outbreak continues in Canterbury, with the number of confirmed cases now 22.

1:25 Celebrating New Zealand poetry 

Poetry New Zealand Yearbook's 2019 edition is out now, focusing on Hamilton poet Stephanie Christie, and containing more than 120 poems. 

The country's longest-running poetry journal also features the work of young kiwi poets, winners of the inaugural competition for high school students.

1:35 Supporting our rural communities

This weekend Jesse was in Canterbury and helped out a fundraiser for the local Rural Support Trust.

If you're not sure what that is, they're there to help in an emergency, but they're also there to help farmers in their everyday lives. 

Neil Bateup is from the national council, and the chair of the Waikato support trust, he's tells us more about it.

3:10 How the tech industry changed our work culture

If you're working insane hours, stressed and exhausted, thank the tech industry. It changed work culture says Dan Lyons, tech journalist and former staff writer for Silicon Valley, the show that parodies the famous California real estate.

Open office plans, silly team bonding games and the never ending quest for innovation have ruined the workplace for everyone.  Dan Lyons makes a plea for companies to ditch the high paid management consultants and see how profit and happy workers can coexist. His new book is called Lab Rats: How Silicon Valley Made Work Miserable for the Rest of Us.
