This week's featured guests on NBR Sunday Business with Andrew Patterson are "Nanogirl" science educator Dr Michelle Dickinson and author and comedian David Downs.

They discuss their new book No 8 Recharged, which examines some of New Zealand’s more recent innovation success stories and argues that our long-held love of the No 8 wire mentality is no longer relevant and in fact is damaging to New Zealand.

The book features a range of more than 200 business success stories, including the rise of high-profile startups such as Rocket Lab and Soul Machines.
