1. Has Trump doomed the world? It seems likely, now that the Orange One has pulled the US out of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

2. Could we soon be seeing more female priests in Aotearoa? Dr Eleanor Sanderson is set to become Wellington's first female bishop.

3. What do you think of the 'White Saviour Complex"? A Good Samaritan who was stabbed after he stood up to a white man who was racially abusing two young Muslim women on a train in Portland, Oregon says he's no hero. Micah Fletcher adds that people should really be talking about two other people who intervened who were stabbed to death, and attributes the attention being given to his actions to the White Saviour Complex.

4. Are we on the path to marijuana legalisation? Doctors can now prescribe cannabidiol without Ministry of Health approval.

5. Is Nigel Farage a Russian agent? The former UKIP leader is a "person of interest" in the FBI's probe into whether Russia hacked the 2016 US presidential election.
