A collection of book-based Our Changing World stories

From science and natural history, to poetry and philosophy, we often feature new books and author interviews on the programme. Our focus is on New Zealand books, but international releases also appear on the show. We also write short reviews about other non-fiction books that come across our desk.


From magnetism to musings about the history of science, there is a growing appetite for well-written science books.

Natural History

From big books on trees to small volumes on strange birds, reading about nature can be almost as good as being there.
