12.20 Anjum Rahman – spokesperson from the Islamic Women's Council of NZ
On the line to talk about recent comments by Sheikh Taj el-Din El-Hilaly, the Mufti of Australia and New Zealand. I'm sure you've all heard by now that he compared immodestly dressed women to uncovered meat (it's just asking to be eaten my neighbourhood cats). The Islamic Women's Council says the comments have nothing to do with the Muslim view of women.
12.45 Steve Maharey – fortnightly catch-up
Our second chat with the minister in what's now going to be a fortnightly feature. Malarky with Maharey. We'll talk about Labour's new interest in the so-called 'Christian left', we'll also touch briefly on climate change – only because they talked about at the Labour Party conference on the weekend, we'll talk about the so-called obesity epidemic, and apparently he's off to Antarctica soon, so we might have a word about that…
1.00 Robert Patman – Associate Professor in the Political Studies Department at Otago University
North Korea - under pressure from China – has this morning agreed to return to nuclear disarmament talks. The announcement has eased tensions after the North's first nuclear weapons test three weeks ago. We'll have a chat to Professor Patman about how world powers are dealing with the North Korea situation.
1.30 Greg Innes – Chief Executive of The Edge
To talk about their bid to be the site of a new $100 million dollar plus convention centre. They're proposing to build the project while they're fixing the Civic carpark – and they reckon it can be finished in time for the world cup rugby in 2011.
Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
