||ExplicitAmeriNZ 315 – Birthdays||My birthday was yesterday—and today. But first, I have some small updates about the upcoming referendum on the New Zealand flag. I talk about my birthdays (plural) and what a great day it was. I also talk about my latest “Tooth Tales” adventure, wh||1/21/2016||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 314 – New Year||The country’s pretty quiet this time of year, so there’s no real news to talk about. So, instead I focus on updates to what I’ve been up to since my last episode. The old year ended ickily, the new one began quietly. I’ve als[...]||1/14/2016||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 313 – Results||First up today, the results of New Zealand’s first flag referendum. Then, an update to a story from last time about John Key. More evidence the incident did Key no harm. We had some stuff to deal with, but got to see the new Star Wars before m[...]||12/18/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 312 – Flag it||This episode follows up on a few things from the previous two episodes, starting with talking about New Zealand’s flag referenda. I explain how we got to this point, and what happens now. Voting in the first referendum ends on Friday. A few ot[...]||12/8/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 311 – Springy||This episode is a bit of a catch-up—except that I mainly skip over the updates (you can ask in the comments about anything you want an update on). My first main topic is the controversy, reported internationally, when women MPs were expelled from a [...||11/13/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 310 – Winterish||After a little bit of weather talk, I begin the first topic, a recap of my periodontal procedures. More recently, I had a gout attack in my hand. Sigh. Then, I talk about a couple things in the New Zealand news and one from Australia, too. Check out[...]||5/28/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||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|
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.
