9:07 Our Changing World
This week Our Changing World celebrates Conservation Week. Alison Ballance heads to Wellington's south coast where community groups are picking up rubbish in a coastal spring clean. And she goes bush at Zealandia, to hear about the unintended consequences on native birds of removing predators.
9:30 The Podcast Hour
Two podcast highlights this week...
First of all a story about a man who collects some of the most amazing coincidences on the planet. Then a homegrown podcast called Taringa- Maori for ear- which is building up its listeners' understanding of Te Ao Māori- the Māori world.
Lately with Karyn Hay is a late night radio show on RNZ National, with an eye on live events, an ear for music, a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in people and their stories.

In this week's Pocket Edition we head to Manurewa High school to meet the band playing the national finals of both Smokefree Rockquest and Tangata Beats, and visit Silver Scroll finalists the Beths at their Auckland studio.
