Wales has made the decision that 16 and 17 year olds will be able to vote in their elections.
It's reignited the conversation here about extending the voting age in Aotearoa. Children's Commissioner Judge Andrew Becroft thinks it is a very exciting conversation to be having and that it is even more urgent as we discuss recovery from the health and financial crises.
1:35 Light Skin, Dark Skin
A new exhibition in Titirangi is exploring the politics of existing with different skin colours. Abhi Chinniah's exhibition Light Skin, Dark Skin uses portraits of New Zealand women to explore the journeys people have to take as a result of the colour of their skin.
It's on right now at the Upstairs Gallery in Titirangi as part of the Auckland Festival of Photography.

2:20 Music Feature - How Americana took over the American mid-west
There's been much debate in the American mid-west over the definition of their favourite music, but they settled on Americana and alt-country. We have an Americana specialist to explain it - Mark Rogers. You might recognise his name from the very late show, Nashville Babylon which is on in the last hour of Nights.
3:10 How to Navigate the Future
The most coveted idea ever conceived by humans could well be the crystal ball. But we are far too addicted to prediction says former CEO Dr Margaret Heffernan, and it stifles creativity and resilience. She makes a plea for more preparation than planning in her new book, Uncharted: How to Navigate the Future.
