Ahh, NZ Country Music, there's a lot to be said for this genre. But Dr. Kirsten Zemke reckons the music speaks for itself, with Delaney Davidson & Barry Saunders' Stolen River, Pasty Rigger's Beautiful Lady, and Prince Tui Teka's Moe Mai E Hine.

Dr. Kirsten Zemke is talking Grime this week, Tess is excited, Mikey's curious. Referencing Dizzee Rascal's I Luv U, Skepta ft. JME's That's Not Me and Stormzy's Know Me From, we dive deep into a genre that may even be compared to Punk. Wow.
