What is likely in the case of the New Zealand born woman linked to Islamic State, and her two young children, detained in Turkey? 25-year-old Suhayra Aden has lived in Australia since the age of six, where she attained dual citizenship, and went to Syria from Australia in 2014 to live under Islamic State. Australia has revoked her citizenship, sparking anger from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who says New Zealand is sick of Australia exporting its problems here. If she is deported from Turkey to New Zealand - how could our government respond, what will her fate be and that of her children? Kathryn speaks with Deborah Manning, an Auckland lawyer specialising in refugee, immigration law and human rights law.

A new study has shone a light on the significant financial impact on carers of people eating disorders. The Otago University study surveyed 137 carers most of whom were parents of someone affected by anorexia nervosa. Nearly a quarter of carers reported that they were unable to work or study at all due to caring for the person with the eating disorder. The average income for carers in the study reduced by 27 per cent, and three quarters reported their productivity was half what it was prior to caring for their family member. Kathryn talks with Clinical Psychologist and Otago University Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological Medicine Jenny Jordan.

10:05 Māori scholars on being a minority in academia

Just five percent of the tertiary sector's teaching and research staff are Māori - a statistic that remains stubbornly low. A new book has brought together the stories of 24 Māori academics, allowing them to detail how they've worked in their respective fields to bring their mātauranga - or Māori knowledge - to their work. The book, Ngā Kete Mātauranga: Māori Scholars at the Research Interface, seeks to demonstrate how mātauranga can positively influence Western-dominated disciplines of knowledge in the research sector. Kathryn talks to the co-editors of the book, Professor Jacinta Ruru from Otago University and Professor Linda Waimarie Nikora from the University of Auckland.

11:20 A Soldier's Tale tours again 

Having a huge new show packed with big names cancelled by a pandemic doesn't come as a surprise to us now, but it did to Igor Stravinsky in 1918. Histoire du Soldat, or The Soldier's Tale, was setting off on its maiden tour when the Spanish Flu pandemic shut it down. The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and the Royal New Zealand Ballet are joining forces to take the work to cities and towns right around Aotearoa.

The piece was designed to be played in small town and village halls. It has music, dancing, a narrator and a pact with the devil! Sara Brodie is the director of this production of The Soldier's Tale and she joins Kathryn to discuss staging a show from one pandemic in another, a century on.
