OurActionStation: Moratorium On Mining Permits for Conservation Land w/Catherine Delahunty

On this week’s regular segment in collaboration with OurActionStation, we’re discussing the call from Coromandel Watchdog for a Moratorium on Mining Permit applications on public conservation land. Despite the commitment placed by the Government in 2017 to stop issuing mining permits on conservation land, it has failed to implement the measure and continue to issue permits under the ‘stewardship land’ reasoning’. Trishil spoke to the organiser of the petition Catherine Delahunty on this issue, discussing the issue with stewardship land, and the harms that mining has on flora and fauna.

Travel costs a barrier for Māori in need of liver cancer treatment w/ Jason Gurney: August 15, 2022

Māori are currently 31% more likely to die from liver cancer than non-Māori with the same diagnosis, but covering the travel costs associated with liver cancer surgery could help close this disparity. Researchers analysed the distance travelled by Māori and Pākehā patients to receive their first primary surgery for liver cancer and found that on average, Māori liver cancer patients travelled twice as far than their Pākehā counterparts. Joe spoke to Jason Gurney, from the Department of Public Health at the University of Otago, about how travel costs being are a barrier for Māori in need of liver cancer treatment.

Tutankhamun Tomb Raid Revelation w/Tony Spalinger

In 1922, the tomb of the young king Tutankhamun was uncovered by Archaeologist Howard Carter, led by his patron George Herbert (5th Earl of Carnarvon), opening up widespread interest into Ancient Egypt civilization. Since then, he has long been suspected of stealing it’s treasures before the tomb was officially opened. These claims have been hard to validify, but a newly discovered letter penned by renowned philologist Sir Alan Gardiner may hold the answer to the questions that have swelled up in the 100 years since the discovery of the tomb. Gardiner’s letter was never published, but the letter details how Carter compensated his work translating the cave hieroglyphics with a ‘whm amulet’, which was historically used as an offering for the dead. Despite being told by Carter that the amulet hadn’t originated from the tomb, confirmation came from the then-director of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo Rex Engelbach after testing other finds transported to the museum. To understand more about the controversy and history surrounding the tomb of Tutankhamun, and the surrounding context, I reached out to University of Auckland Professor Anthony Spalinger to discuss the news and more.

Revitalising St James Theatre w/ Steve Bielby & Chlöe Swarbrick: August 15, 2022

New video footage of the interior of the vandalised St James Theatre has been released by Auckland Central MP Chlöe Swarbrick, showing fungi growing on damp floors, damaged electrical fittings and roof, as well as an exposure to the weather and rain, and foundation-eroding dampness. Swarbrick has written an open letter calling for the government to match the Auckland Council's $15 million commitment to restoring the building. She says this decision can't be kicked down the road any more and that the revival of the theatre will secure Queen Streets' status as a buzzing destination that will provide space and a place for Auckland's creative community. Built in 1928, St James Theatre once hosted many shows and concerts. St James Theatre is also regarded as a Category 1 Heritage building, meaning it is a historic places are of special or outstanding historical or cultural significance or value.  However, Building owner Steve Bielby says thieves and vandals had 'gutted' the once historic site. Joe spoke to the owner of St James Theatre, Steve Bielby as well as Green Party MP for Auckland Central Chlöe Swarbrick, about why the revitalisation of St James Theatre is so significant to Auckland.

Communities in the Pacific Impacted by Climate Change w/ Dr Dalila Gharbaoui: August 10, 2022

The Media's Role in the Parliament Occupation w/ Byron C Clark: August 10, 2022

Parliament grounds have been cleared, and the grass will regrow, but the disinformation networks behind the protests remain. This is how disinformation researcher Byron Clark described the aftermath of March’s parliament occupation. In a new journal article, Clark reflects on the media’s role in the occupation, from far-right networks such as Counterspin, to mainstream platforms such as Newsroom and Newstalk ZB, and urges journalists not to ignore disinformation networks, but to investigate them and analyse the role they are playing in our contemporary ‘post-truth’ world. Emilia spoke to Byron Clark about his article, which is linked below https://ojs.aut.ac.nz/pacific-journalism-review/article/view/1248/1580

You'll hear what Nan's most favourite dessert is - we're the first to play the latest single from Marlon Williams - Lewis Black delivers words of wisdom from an old episode of Charlie Brookers' Screenwipe - and Prefab Sprout had another one of their live gigs released from the Beeb again so of course we're playing a couple tracks from that!
