We farewell the year with a Prime Minister that may not have ever guessed they'd be the bearer of that particular title come 2017's end. What should we be proud of as New Zealanders this year? And what should we work on harder in the next?
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.
