I have a cold, but I tried to edit this so it makes more sense. Sometimes I succeeded.

I begin with a brief history update, then I tell you about an evening Nigel and I had recently. For the main topic today, I tell you about life in a place with a political and economic system that’s different from my homeland’s. New Zealand has a parliamentary democracy and it’s a social democracy. I know that some of my fellow Americans would hate the idea of either, but other country’s ways aren’t necessarily worse or wrong. There are some aspects to New Zealand that even the rightest-of-right Americans would approve of.

My next political discussion with Jason will be posted on Friday, August 1 (NZ time). If you have any questions or topics you’d like us to discuss, please send them to Arthur(at]amerinzpodcast.com in the next few days.
