||ExplicitAmeriNZ 309 – Nine||Things I talked about last time have resolved themselves, and that’s where I begin today. New Zealand’s result in the ICC Cricket World Cup is first, followed by the Northland By-election. A peculiarity in New Zealand law caused some iss[...]||3/31/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 308 – Eight||So much has happened since my last podcast that “I scarcely know where to begin.” I start out with my own news (hey, it IS my podcast…), more tooth drama. Sigh. Then, a more serious health issue that wasn’t mine. I also talk about [...]||3/27/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 307 – Selfie||A new year, and my birthday is over. An audio clip about that begins this episode before I go on to talking about what we did on our summer holiday. We didn’t do much, really! It was good, though. Toward the end, I talk about some of the things I’m [.||1/23/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 306 – Solstice||This is the December Solstice, the longest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. I talk about that first, but I made a wee error—did you catch it? Today I talk a bit about why I do politics—not the mechanics and boring stuff, but rather what I[.||12/22/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 305 – Third||This is the third episode of 2014, and the first in seven months. Do I remember how to do this? Well, I did, more or less, but I had some sound issues and re-recorded this again (again) today. A lot has happened since we last spoke: The NZ elections[...]||12/16/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 304 – May||This is the first episode of the eighth year of the AmeriNZ Podcast. Finally. First up, there was a crime in our neighbourhood. After that, I update things I talked about last time, specifically, the NZ election campaign and my tooth-related stuff. [...]||5/30/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 303 – SEVEN||Today is the seventh anniversary of the AmeriNZ Podcast! It’s such a big deal that I had to put the number in ALL CAPS in today’s title—because, many people probably never thought I’d make it. I thought this was a good time to resu[...]||3/28/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 302 – I survived||I’ve been busier busy than usual. First, we got married. Then, there was the reorganising of “stuff”. There will be more of that. In NZ news, the Labour Leadership was decided, and the main islands have names. I’ll be back sooner rather than later||12/11/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 301 – Return||Well, I’m back, again. Again. Today catches us up on stuff, starting with things in the New Zealand news. There’s actually quite a lot to go over, and I do. Then, it’s on to some of what I’ve been up to since my last episode. There’s been a bit||8/30/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 300 – Matariki||I’m all over the place today—appropriate, in some ways, for the three hundredth episode. Today’s is a normal episode: I begin by talking about some things going on in New Zealand, including Matariki, and also some things going on with me. Next, it||6/24/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 299 – Resumption||Today’s episode is all about catching up on what I’ve missed over the past few episodes. It clears the decks so that we can just carry on from here. First up, I talk a bit about marriage equality in New Zealand (and a little bit beyond…). Comments a||5/29/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 298 – Equality||Today I have one topic: Marriage equality arriving in New Zealand one week ago today. I start by telling you about some of my impressions the night. I also give you my full impressions of what New Zealand’s far right did—and is up to now! After some[.||4/24/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 297 – Excitement||I start today talking about the recent earthquakes in Auckland. Then, some New Zealand news since I last podcasted. That includes an update on the marriage equality bill, of course. Personal updates follow, and that leads, eventually, to some talk t[...]||3/21/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 296 – Preparing||I start today talking about New Zealand broadcaster Paul Holmes, who died today. Meanwhile, we’re waiting for stuff. Then, I give an update about the select committee hearing oral submissions on the marriage equality bill. I have some strong v[...]||2/1/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 295 – Waiting||We’re waiting for stuff, especially a three-day holiday weekend. We’re doing some stuff, may do other stuff. I was a grumpy Kiwi the other day, which gives me a chance to talk about some items in the New Zealand news—including a cat figh[...]||1/24/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 294 – Experimental||I begin today with a “Parliament Update”: It started with an update on the marriage equality bill, then moved on to the bill to force charter schools on us, submissions for which close next week. After that, I play various audio files se[...]||1/16/2013||Free||View In iTunes|

That means updates, starting with the holidays and moving on through the diet as well as some things a bit more exciting (for me, anyway…). Then, it’s a whole bunch of updates about various podcasts I’ve been par[...]||1/13/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
Arthur does what he pleases
Without a doubt AmeriNZ is my favorite podcast produced by an American who lives abroad.
Run, don't walk to subscribe to this show! Arthur is always very interesting and informative, and does it with just a slight (yet adorable) Kiwi accent! :) Love the show!
I always enjoy a new AmeriNZ in my iTunes. You will, too! Politics, culture, personal musings, they're all here with one of the nicest hosts in podcast land.
