ANZAC Day Geopolitical Threat Special with Gerry Brownlee, Ben Morgan and Damien Grant


Tonight a one off ANZAC Day special where we will focus on current geopolitical threats, look at the Ukrainian/Russian war, look at China Vs America in the Pacific and we will ask if NZs Military is up to the challenge.

Our guest panel is Former Foreign Minister Gerry Brownlee, Anti-War Libertarian Damien Grant and former NZ Army Officer and Military Blogger, Ben Morgan.


The podcast broadcasts live 7.30pm Tuesdays from our purpose built studio bunker ADJACENT to Mediaworks studios on Facebook, YouTube & The Daily Blog and posted up afterwards on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Rova & YouTube 


  1. WW1 was a War for Empire, WW2 a War against Nazi Fascism but Ukraine & China are Wars to preserve a dying US Hegemony!

    • I watched and was less than enthused by the panel except for Jerry. Whilst I did not agree with all he said he was well structured and considered in his answers, and obviously better versed in the subject matter. That was a pleasant surprise…self slap with a wet bus ticket for damning him simply because he is a Nat.
      As for the others all seemed to view the world as a nail with their only tool a hammer, subtlety of thought and any deep exploration or knowledge was entirely absent. Ben displayed tunnel vision in his high level of military knowledge, so the talk of rugby seemed appropriate. To illustrate Ben was like Sean Lynch , a Lions prop who after a grinding scrum asked Colin Meads, “How was that for scrummaging?” Meads replied that it was impressive but if he looked up he would have seen the ABs score a try. Very Sun Tsu.
