    Sports-chat with Sam Ackerman

    Sam looks into a few examples from over the weekend - of how what happens - when the focus is on who you've lost from sporting organisations rather than who is still there - and what the first weekend of the Six Nations tells us in the first on-field step towards the World Cup.

    Business commentator Rebecca Stevenson

    If 2022 was about the rise of unions in the US, 2023 is shaping up to be the year of the strike - but this reaches far beyond America's shores. Britain faces the largest ever strike by health workers today as tens of thousands of nurses and ambulance workers walk out. There are transport strikes, education strikes, civil servants are striking - the Guardian website is now running a "strike calendar" to keep track of them all. And this week bids will start coming in to buy one of the world's biggest sporting names: Manchester United. The club is up for sale by the US-based Glazer family, who are despised by the club's fans for siphoning billions out of the club and eroding its dominance on the field.

    World renowned neuropsychiatrist on longevity and staving off dementia

    World renowned neuropsychiatrist on longevity and staving off dementia

    Common factors for longevity from the neuropsychiatrist with oversight of one of the world's largest studies of centenarians, is reaching 150 possible?. Much of Professor Perminder Sachdev's work relates to the epidemiology of dementia and cognitive ageing. In particular, the focus is on identifying risk factors for dementia, especially those that can be modifying, in diverse communities, so that strategies can be developed to help delay the onset of dementia. The idea behind this is that if dementia can be delayed by even 1-2 years, it will lead to a significant reduction in disease burden.

Amazing host

Katheryn is such an impressive host who manages to combine intellectual interviews on an amazingly wide range of deep and/or sensitive topics. Head and shoulders above most others. I compare her to a wonderful host for the BBC who managed to “drop a word in the ear of the nation”. Kathryn does the same here for NZ with grace and intelligence.
She gets my vote.

Could be better

Great topics covered and interviewees, but the host doesn’t give them enough time to speak (and spends each interview commenting on the time remaining).

Elby One ,

Kathryn Ryan

often seems like the interviewee here, talking over her guests with her sanctimonious sludge. Hard. Very hard to listen to.
