AmeriNZ 327 – Flipside

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016Last time I talked about some storms down south. We had some bad ones last weekend. The bad weather has made it difficult to get my projects around the house finished. There are a couple items in the New Zealand news that are related to the USA—not political, exactly, but politics-related. Mainly, it’s about immigration and very wealthy Americans coming to New Zealand.

AmeriNZ 251 – Fifth Season

Today is the first podcast of my Fifth Season! Monday was my Fourth Podoversary, so this is now my fifth year of podcasting. I begin by talking a bit about April Fool’s Day and a little prank I played. Then I talk about some things in the NZ news, starting with Christchurch and moving on to a political scandal.

After that, it’s on to a discussion of the recent flurry of activity in US immigration law, which ended up right back where it started. I have strong feelings about this and, yes, it’s personal.

Comments round out this episode—and this week. Back next week!
