09:05 Information sharing between governments
Air Marshall Sir Bruce Ferguson, the former director of the GCSB, says the organisation did not use data shared by other countries to circumvent New Zealand laws around what it's allowed to access. Following the revelations about the massive, top-secret United States intelligence monitoring programme called Prism, questions have been raised about what kinds of data the New Zealand spy agency had access to from overseas, and what such data might have been used for.
09:20 Accessing government ministers' emails
The New Zealand First leader Winston Peters is keeping up pressure over who leaked the GSCB inquiry report to the media and is defending his own use of leaked information about Parliamentary emails in pursuit of the matter.

11:05 Marty Duda's Artist of the Week
British post-punk band Killing Joke have been a going concern since 1978. Led by the charismatic and volatile singer Jaz Coleman, they became one of the early “goth” bands before expanding their sound to include influences like dub, Egyptian, metal and synth-pop. The band has been particularly busy lately releasing a career retrospective called Singles, being the subject of a documentary film, The Death And Resurrection Show, and taking part in a world tour that brings them to New Zealand for the first time this Thursday. Oh, and Jaz Coleman is also writing a book and the next Killing Joke album.
