The Panel with Andrew Hoggard and Alexia Russell (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:05 pm on 25 July 2018

A survey has found the average person stops seekign new music at age 27 years and 11 months. We have what's called "musical paralysis" after that, where we want to here familar tracks and don't want to try new genres. People from different countries have different ages their musical tastes peak. We ask the panelists if this is true for them. What the panelists Andrew Hoggard and Alexia Russell want to talk about. A quarter of New Zealanders arrive at hospital emergency departments with injuries caused while drinking, a study has found. But the results show New Zealand has improved since 2000, coming in at number 2 on the list of 28, behind Sweden. Injuries from drink driving in particular seem to have eased. Professor Bridget Kool from Auckland University joins the show to tell us what is encouraging and what still needs to be worked on.
