7:10 Hoani Jeremy Lambert: Listening to our kids

Hoani Jeremy Lambert is the tamariki advocate at the newly formed Oranga Tamariki - The Ministry for Vulnerable Children. He only got the job after being given the nod by a panel of children currently living in state care; and part of his brief is to ensure that other government departments become as committed to consulting children as Oranga Tamariki is.

Hoani also refers to the issue of unconscious bias raised on the show by Anton Blank on April 20

Dooms Day Clock

Hans Kristensen is the director of the Federation of American Scientists' nuclear information project and the co-author of a recent article that argued the killing power of the US's ballistic missile arsenal has increased by a factor of three due to its modernisation programme.
