1:17 The rising costs of farming

Is it too tough to be a farmer in New Zealand as rules and regulations increase?

New Zealand Primary Industries body AGFIRST  says that the high costs of compliance are making it harder and harder to make ends meet. 

The managing director of AGFIRST James Allen is interested in what he's seeing in the Waikato between Hamilton and South Auckland at the moment.

We all know what pain means to us specifically - but what actually is it and how can we deal with?

Toxic masculinity was not part of our vocabulary 20 years ago when family therapist and educator Steve Biddulph first starting talking about how the challenges of modern manhood were making men depressed, angry and even violent.  He says we lost the links that shape healthy manhood in the onslaught of change over the course of the last 100 years. The New Manhood looks at the issues of love, friendship, sex, marriage, and raising children and how to be a good man in the modern world. 

3:35 Voices What makes a Kiwi adopt the beliefs of Islam? 

Today on Voices, we look at New Zealand converts to Islam since March the 15th. Two Christchurch residents share their own personal stories about their faith.
