The Panel with Mai Chen and John Pulu (Part 1)
The directors of the failed construction company Mainzeal, who include former prime minister Jenny Shipley, have been ordered to pay the company's creditors $36 million. Business journalist and co-host of RNZ/Newsroom's Two Cents' Worth podcast Nikki Mandow joins us to explain what it all means. A bill which would allow people to change their sex on their birth certificate has been deferred, with authorities citing inadequate public consultation. A new report by Oranga Tamariki and the Office of the Children's Commissioner has been released - one which actually compiles the opinions of children themselves. And the results are jarring, with more than a third saying they face problems like racism, poverty and bullying. Donna Provoost from the Commissioner's Office joins us to talk through the findings.
