Have we not moved away from the idea that Earth is flat?

Mark Honeychurch joins Graeme Hill to talk the week in flat Earthers, the Loch Ness Monster and the 'Spirit Whisperer'.

Flat Earthers are conspiracy theorists believing that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, is full of lies.

A local New Zealand group was able to organise a conference to talk about their current theories and ideas in which national broadcaster TVNZ did a report.

They call themselves ‘Flat Mates’.

Mr Honeychurch and Graeme listen to clips of the conference and look into the group’s religious crossover.

Also, the age old question - is something living in Scotland's Loch Ness?

A bunch of scientists are headed out to take samples from the lake in the hope of extracting unrecognised DNA.

Lastly, the Napier based psychic Craig Wright, otherwise known as the "Spirit Whisperer” has just been convicted on two charges of indecent assault.

Should spiritual mediums be policed by a professional association or does this legitimise the alternative practice?

Listen to the full audio with Mark Honeychurch above.
