AmeriNZ 195 – Summer simmer

amerinz_podcast_150x150It’s HOT in Auckland! I was also completely busy last week, partly because of a public holiday. Actually we had two public holidays last week, which leads me to talk a bit about public holidays generally. This year, Waitangi Day touched off discussion on changing the New Zealand flag. I talk a bit about that, and even about flag burning, of all things. New Zealand news updates this episode are about a singer who died, an update to something I talked about last time, and also the Prime Ministers speech to Parliament today.

Before comments, I have some updates about this podcast. A lot is going on!
