Elective egg freezing has seen a steady increase over the last ten years, but it is still only just becoming known in New Zealand. Dr Lois Tonkin, works as a counsellor at Genea Oxford Fertility in Christchurch, is a lecturer at the University of Canterbury and an affiliated Scholar with the Sociology of Reproduction Research Group at the University of Cambridge in the UK. She is currently  working on a new research project, the first of its kind in the world,  where she talks to women who have frozen their eggs to bring the complicated and deeply personal stories of egg freezing to the fore. The project right now is a pilot for a much larger one, and she is looking for interested participants.

Now some technologists are working to develop the next generation of the web - Web 3.0 - which is aimed at decentralising the web and perhaps more importantly eliminating expensive middlemen and giving users more control over their data. One potential solution is blockchain - the same technology which underpins cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Kathryn Ryan talks to Andreas Antonopoulos.

Writer, educator and cultural critic Roxane Gay made a name for herself as a "bad feminist," acknowledging that she couldn't possibly live up to the demands of the feminist movement.
