Unique political commentary unlike any other

The podcast broadcasts live at 7.30pm from the Mediaworks studios on Facebook, YouTube & The Daily Blog and posted up afterwards on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Rova & Youtube.


  1. I think Labour have lost the preverbal room, this and the ‘cost of living payments’ could be woven into tonight’s topics.

    Enough with the Greens, everybody had a laugh expect them.. and it’s a non-starter anyway.

  2. Roger Douglas & David Lange in action carving up NZ.

    Someone Else’s Country looks critically at the radical economic changes implemented by the 1984 Labour Government — where privatisation of state assets was part of a wider agenda that sought to remake New Zealand as a model free-market state. The trickle-down ‘Rogernomics’ rhetoric warned of no gain without pain, and here the theory is counterpointed by the social effects (redundant workers, Post Office closures).

  3. Martyn, it is so hard to hear the working group on Youtube. Last night, I gave up 1/2 way through because I couldnt hear any of you clearly. Its frustrating.

  4. Enjoyed this last night, began as a good natured laugh, Trotter wandered briefly in to the weeds talking about womens soccer and then things got serious talking about destruction of democracy.

    Noteable that all speakers were on the same page about fears over anti democratic government. How is it if real people on left and right feel this way, we let ourselves be set at each other and the current government pushes through this co governance poison?
    Enjoyed the honesty of Jamie Whyte especially.

  5. I must say. That was the most enjoyable session so far for me to have watched! Grown ups! Except for Damian.
