Speak Up Kōrerotia - The influence of porn on young people( 0:58:22)       
Episode Information
Online porn is very often aggressive, non-consensual, and shows behaviour that we would normally deem at the very least ‘unhealthy’ and at worst, illegal. If young people are viewing this porn and perceiving this behaviour as normal and/or acceptable, how are these views shaping the way they comport themselves moving forwards into their adult lives and developing relationships? Anne Heins joins Sally as co-host, and they talk with Tracy Clelland (University of Canterbury) and Jo Robertson (The Light Project) about the role of porn in young people's lives.

“Speak Up – Kōrerotia” – a radio show centred on human rights issues. Encouraging discussion on human rights issues prevalent in both Canterbury and New Zealand, Speak Up – Kōrerotia offers a forum to promote the issues facing New Zealanders, providing a voice to affected communities. Engaging in conversations around human rights issues in our country, each show covers a different human rights issue with guests from or working with the affected communities. Analysing and asking questions of the realities of life in Canterbury and New Zealand allows Speak Up – Kōrerotia to cover the issues that often go untouched! Discussing the hard-hitting topics, Speak Up – Kōrerotia wishes to encourage listeners to reflect on the issues covered – be it issues listeners are already engaged in, have a passing knowledge of, or no knowledge at all. In our busy modern lives it is rare to have an uninterrupted hour where you can discuss powerful and important experiences and opinions, and Speak Up – Kōrerotia provides this platform to express and share opinions about those inherently important topics. Hosted by Sally Carlton, the show brings key issues to the fore and provides space for guests to “Speak Up” and share their thoughts and experiences.
