Niuean-born Sir Collin Tukuitonga is highly regarded for his work in Pacific peoples' health, both in NZ and internationally.

His big health interests are heart disease, obesity and diabetes, and the impact on health of the climate crisis.

He recently resigned from his government advisory roles, citing no confidence, so he can "speak up and speak out" about the treatment of Pacific people.

He joins Susie to share some of his favourite 70's and 80's hits, which he fears show his age!
