||ExplicitAmeriNZ 328 – Our Turn||The date for New Zealand’s parliamentary elections has been announced, and I talk about that first, as well as about how New Zealand elections work. I also talk about the politics of all this—the state of the Left in New Zealand, the prospects for t[.||2/3/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 327 – Flipside||Last time I talked about some storms down south. We had some bad ones last weekend. The bad weather has made it difficult to get my projects around the house finished. There are a couple items in the New Zealand news that are related to the USA—not [...||1/27/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 326 – Summertime||We finally got some summer weather! We had pleasant holidays, but this time of year is very quiet and that’s both good and bad (probably mostly good). My birthday is tomorrow! That will keep me from paying any attention to the hoopla in Washington, [...||1/19/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 325 – New Team||New Zealand has a new Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. I talk about that, some of the intrigue, and especially about what all this could mean. On the other hand, I probably won’t have anything more to say about it until the middle of [...]||12/14/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 324 – Shock Resignation||Today the New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key, announced he was resigning on Monday, December 12. It came as a total surprise—no one in the general public saw it coming. In this special episode, I talk about that, what happened, what will happen, a[...||12/5/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 323 – Results||I made Thanksgiving Dinner this year! I talk about that first. Then, it’s on to the recent US election, and how it could affect expats as well as New Zealand. Then, I talk about the results of the NZ local government elections. There were good[...]||11/29/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 322 – Progress||The first and last episode for September is about progress, starting with New Zealand. New Zealand’s new Governor General was sworn in. I yawned—and cringed. We’re still in the midst of our local elections. Turnout has been very low. And, t[...]||9/30/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 321 – Seasons||This episode was recorded on Tuesday, but I couldn’t post it until today due to major problems with this site. The problems were kind of complicated, though ultimately simple to fix, but it took me two days to figure it out. And I think I have[...]||8/24/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 320 – Nine Years||This is a very short episode just to acknowledge that today is the Ninth Anniversary of the AmeriNZ Podcast: Nine years ago today I posted the first episode of the AmeriNZ Podcast. It’s been quite a journey! The second NZ Flag Referendum ended[...]||3/27/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 319 – From Overseas||This is my second podcast episode for March, which is nice, but it turns out that I’ve been posting two new episodes every month so far this year, which I think is a fantastic improvement on how things have been the past couple years. The first actu[...||3/22/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 318 – Old School||This is a short episode as I triumph over adversity. Well, unexpected technical problems. My voice is also a bit raw. But I was determined to record today, no matter what. The first actual topic today is that yesterday was the 31st anniversary of th[...]||3/7/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 317 – Progress-ish||Today, the first topic is polling about the New Zealand flag referendum. There are some surprising results. I talk about the details of the results, and also about how to evaluate polls. After that, I talk about some updates since the last episode, [...]||2/26/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitAmeriNZ 316 – Vampires||Today I talk about things I’ve been up to since my birthday, including the conclusion to an earlier story. It kind of clears the deck for some New Zealand topics next time. First up today, I reached an important decision and made a change. Rec[...]||2/16/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||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.

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.
