AmeriNZ 216 – Recovery Mode

amerinz_podcast_150x150I’m in recovery—my cold is passing! I tell you what I’ve been up to (busy—a surprise, I know). Then I tell you a bit about Pride 48 and some of what I’ve been working on. This podcast is now played on Pride It means that I MUST now do two podcasts a week! I explain why.

From there it’s some bits from the New Zealand news: A trans-friendly proposal for the next NZ Census, the budget and some observations about NZ politics. I play an example to talk about how NZ journalists are far less deferential to elected politicians than US journalists are.

Comments round out this episode before I’m done for this week. I’ll be back twice next week!

  1. Yay! You are feeling better! Thanks for joining my show last night. It’s always fun.

    Now, as to not saying the date….how will I know what date it is if you don’t say it? I guess I’ll have to go by the date you post it.

  2. You inspired a blogpost – expect it Thursday a.m., US time.

    Love to see a link to the NZ Census questions and a discussion of the types of questions asked (or not) on the different forms.
    (For the US example, you might consider the 2000 long form, or the American Community Survey form, since the 2010 form is SO short.)

    I’ve been fascinated by the fact that the Canadians allow for a question on religion in their Census, while in the US, it would be anathema to many folks, separation of church and state and all that.
    Oh, re your previous show, I forgot to write about TWINKIES! I was boycotting Twinkies in the early 1970s. They were made by ITT at the time, and ITT at the time was part of the Vietnam war machine. So when the war was over, I tried a Twinkie, which I recall liking a lot before. NOT SO GOOD.
