Like my microphone, the world has had to absorb shocks lately. Today I talk a bit about the financial crisis and how it’s affecting New Zealand and Australia (not much). But I spend most of my time taking on a right-wing attack in the US. It’s a little controversial, but sometimes you need that.

In coming episodes I’ll talk about issues, like healthcare, from my perspective living in NZ. Sometimes what the US media says isn’t necessarily so, and I offer a different perspective. Other special episodes are coming up, too.
