PM Ardern's back from Australia having asked some tough questions and made some kind offers, neither of which seem to have been met gratefully by our antipodean cousins. Maintaing a busy schedule and a level of practical positivity in the face of disturbing new MBIE numbers ain't enough for our PM though - she's still got time for you-lot. Listen in.
With a brand new term and a brand new intro to boot, it's only our weekly chat with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Whether sugar, petrol, standardised testing or other going concerns, no topic's off limits for our newly minted leader.

How hard is relentless positivity in the face of muck raking? Now that Labour seem to be a genuine threat, how dirty could the Crosby Textor team take things? And is Labour really _that_ squeaky clean on that front?
