Great way to catch up on NZ politics
Really great to have a casual conversation like this as a podcast keep up the good work team! :)
Ben Ben Ben
Very disturbed by Ben's near rabid anti- Wellingtonism. Get a grip Ben, it's not as if you're comparing it to Wanaka or somewhere nicer - you're in an Auckland traffic queue for goodness sake 😺
Entertaining and enlightening
Thoroughly enjoy these podcasts.
Panellists from right and left and presenter are informative but don't take themselves too seriously.
Good chemistry between the three and clearly knowledgeable in NZ politics and current events.
The hour flies by too soon!
