  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    I would like some spokesperson for the Police to explain why they pursued this line of inquiry.

  • Hard News: All or Nothing: Accidentally Great,

    I have been able to watch the first three eps. Pretty good really, with Steve being surprisingly philosophical. There is some fun to be had if you watch it with subtitles, when they mangle some local lingo.

  • Hard News: All or Nothing: Accidentally Great,

    I will do, once I get an opportunity (Netflix seems to have swallowed our TV). It sounds interesting and could be considered as a riposte to the local screen industry, given its long neglect of rugby as a source of interesting stories.
    I will be interested in how Steve Hansen performs; he is not the most telegenic or articulate of blokes 🙄

  • Hard News: All or Nothing: Accidentally Great,

    Was rung up Morning Report last week, to give an opinion on this. Will have to watch it now. My hope is that it would give more exposure to rugby in North America, given the growth in professional rugby in the US.

    Congratulations to AudioCulture. I remember some of those early discussions. Coincidentally, I have just received a request to re-work my AC piece on the Pretty Things for a book collection..

  • Hard News: Budget 2018: The final tick,

    I think the claim that there is some kind of stand-off between RNZ and Claire Curran (most recently promulgated by The Spinoff) is without any foundation. Sitting beside each other at the recent Better Public Media panel, they seemed in full agreement. A major barrier to cooperation (Richard Griffin) has now gone.

    Anthonie did a great performance at The Meteor in Hamilton (he really liked the venue) recently,
    Stratford or New Plymouth? There is an important difference (I have lived in both places).

    I name-check Lorde in my latest contribution to New Zealand Memories, about the very early days of local recorded music.
