8:15 Dateline Pacific
RNZ Pacific's daily current affairs programme covering the major Pacific stories of the week, with background and reaction from the people making the news.
8:30 Window on the World
Are processed foods and urbanisation numbing children's sensory abilities, and should we teach them to smell, touch, taste and even listen to their food to improve their diets and self-awareness? Emily Thomas meets three people from different parts of the world who work in 'sensory food education', which encourages children to explore all aspects of a food. They want young people to be taught these skills in schools, but is this really a job for teachers rather than parents? And could sensory food education really be as important as numeracy and literacy?
9:07 Our Changing World
This week on Our Changing World, Alison Ballance introduces us to two rare elements - actinium and americium - from her new chemistry podcast Elemental. And the Kakapo Files meets some of the island rangers hard at work on Whenua Hou / Codfish Island and discovers what the Ding Dong is.
9:30 The Podcast Hour
This week Richard Scott is doing some hunting. First up we go hunting for extra-terrestrial life and then some Aussie film geeks go on the hunt for a mysterious author in 'Finding Drago'.
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.
11:07 Music 101 pocket edition
On this week's Pocket Edition we talk to Mark Day from UK legends Happy Mondays, and host a live session from Australian singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin.
