If you're a New Zealand business doing shoddy things... well, just you watch out. Rod's on to you, and he's not mincing words. Fletcher Building? Fonterra? You're up.

Poor Bill English. The career obits flow and Assoc. Prof. Curtin's sick burns are taking no notice. But who will inherit the throne? Winter is coming, indeed.

Mikey and David talk Waitangi seachange, world finance, Hobbit law, and general tomfoolery. What's not to love?

Cannabis law reform: so close and yet so far away? With a fair dose of MP flip flopping and an ex-bFMer at the helm, just what happened in parliament when weedy things were recently tabled?

Rod's just back from the US, so who better to talk through some of the more worrying aspects of that nation's current leader. Where to start? Is it all worrying? Should we just roll our eyes and ignore it? Or is reaching critical Trump mass a very real danger in itself?

We remember the legacy and strong values of Jim Anderton - in the age of personality politics, a reminder of the ideals of public service. And relic or a necessary yardstick, just who are '100 day plans' for? The press, the public, the parliament? Oh, and erm... Oprah for President?

It's the end of the year, and let's face it... 2017 hasn't been a great one for empathy. From the public treatment of our politicians to the treament of our least fortunate citizens, David Slack reckons it's about time we all took pause. It is Christmas, after all.

The 'secret coalition document' and the big scoop from David Fisher that no one seems to care about. Today's segment brought to you by the letters O, I + A and the word: 'transparency'.

What's Twyford up to with Auckland's Unitary Plan? Is Winston going to North Korea? When is a (CP)TPP not a trade agreement? Are we having fun yet? (Yes, actually.)

Assoc. Prof. Curtin helps you get to the bottom of what happened on that fractious first day back in parliament. Was it reportedly awful or are the press just starved for snacks? Why's the appointment of a Reserve Bank Governor so important? And Winston asks National: are you being served?
