AmeriNZ 252 – Septimana horribilis

It was a terrible week last week (hence, the name of this episode). I start out talking about that first. Then, I tell you some things that are coming up (Easter is a four-day holiday weekend in New Zealand). I may record with Nigel!

My main topic today is news about big moves made by the New Zealand Parliament just today. That leads into a talk of some appalling tactics by the National Party-led government.

Once again, phone and written comments let me expand on the issues discussed.

One thought on “AmeriNZ 252 – Septimana horribilis

  1. When you talked about your hand being almost unrecognizable to you, it reminded me about how I view the back of my own hands (and parts of my arms, legs, feet, face) post-vitilago. “Who the hell IS that?”
