What the Panelists Tim Watkin and Penny Ashton want to talk about. It's been speculated the Meghan Markle's father might not make the royal wedding, with many debating whether he should go at all. Meanwhile Ms Markle's half-sister has been called a "vulture" by controverisal broadcaster Piers Morgan. Do the panelists agree with the frenzy or do they care?

In response to a quick question regarding cycle lanes in Papatoetoe, we get feedback from a listener who says the lanes are not being used because people are too fond of their cars in the area. Deputy Chair of the Otara-Papatoetoe local board, Ross Robertson, joins the show to tell us he agrees. More mums and dads are smoking weed, a new report has found. Cannabis use in parents has risen to 17 percent, the research says.
