10:20 Prison overhaul for women's treatment long overdue

The Corrections Minister, Kelvin Davis, is calling for an urgent overhaul of the way women prisoners are treated. Judge David McNaughton found last month that Mihi Bassett and two other inmates had been treated inhumanely in Auckland Women's Prison. At Bassett's sentencing today he said she had suffered enough and would not get extra time on her sentence for arson at the prison in 2019.  Professor Tracey McIntosh is co-head of Te Wananga o Waipapa School of Maori Studies and Pacific Studies at University of Auckland.

10:45  Sir Ian Taylor: how Animation Research mastered the art of pivoting 

Once a fortnight on a Monday night we chat technology. Tonight we have possibly the busiest man in tech, Sir Ian Taylor, from Animation Research. Sir Ian's company provides the graphics for the America's Cup and for sports fixtures across several countries. But things changed drastically on many fronts when lockdowns prevented travel and sports tournaments were cancelled. Now, Animation Research is doing all the same tournaments virtually.
