Craig Atkinson from Paper Plus joined Carly Flynn with a couple of his book recommendations.

Fresh, affordable and easy cooking, for Craig it's about getting the kids to be engaged with cooking the family meal and giving them an understanding of where their food comes from - this is why he recommends Nadia Lim's Family Favourites cookbook.

For the novel reader Craig recommends Hellbent by Gregg Hurwitz, book three of the Orphan X series. You don't have to have read the previous two books to get into it, so this thriller is one for everyone. 

Jacinda Ardern: The Musical

This week on the social scene: the Prime Minister got serenaded by a school choir who turned her name into a song, plus the latest reactions from the Winter Olympics in South Korea, New Zealander of the Year, and Trump's response to the Florida Shooting.

Media merger to close or sell 28 print publications

Irene Gardiner has her mind on the media.

This week she talks about the Stuff/Fairfax merger that will result in 28 print publications getting sold or closed. The announcement this past week seemed sadly inevitable, as Stuff focuses on its online operation, and tries to stay afloat in the challenging media environment we are now in. 

And, of course, this announcement also relates to the Stuff/NZME merger that the Commerce Commission has turned down, and that the two companies are appealing again. 

Tova O’Brien is taking over the Three Political Editor role and now Jessica Mutch has been confirmed for the TVNZ Political Editor role. This will be the first time that the heads of all the major media outlets in the gallery have been female.

Silky Buffalo Mozzarella

Right off the back of catering for a wedding, Jess Daniell from Jess' Underground Kitchen joins Carly Flynn to share some her best bean and mozzarella recipes.

Continuing with the mozzarella theme, Helen Dorresteyn joins the show. Helen was one of the founders of the Clevedon Market, as well has Clevedon Buffalo Mozzarella.

Since it's inception 10 years ago, the business now has 12 products and more than nine medals for its buffalo dairy products - and is still staying true to its values – delivering fresh, premium buffalo cheese and yoghurt into homes and restaurants nationwide.

She joins the show and shares two of her best recipes!
