Today’s episode is named after two anniversaries: Today is the seventeenth anniversary of my blog, and yesterday was the 28th anniversary of when I first arrived in New Zealand as a tourist, when Nigel and I met in person for the first time. This coming weekend is also the final Pride 48 Live Streaming Event, and I reminisce and opine about podcasting. Then, I briefly talk about a small project outside. Finally, I share a funny (to me) story form New Zealand’s news.
The June Solstice is tonight, though winter is already three weeks old, of course. The main topic today is a recent public meeting that illustrates what I was talking about last time, and it also shows a good way for politicians to respond. Finally today, I talk about a bit of a shock I had on Monday that affected me.
Today the AmeriNZ Podcast is sixteen years old. No one is more surprised about that than me. This episode is a short “thinking out loud” about the future of this podcast, plus a little more about the organisation system I created for myself.
This is the first episode of the sixteenth season of the AmeriNZ Podcast—sort of. There have been some changes to New Zealand’s response to Covid 19, and I talk about that first. Then, I talk about some changes closer to home—well, in my home, actually.
Today is the Fifteenth Anniversary of the AmeriNZ Podcast! I’m as surprised as anyone that this anniversary has arrived.
Today I just talk about the podcast, the things that shaped the way the podcast changed over the years, and some of the challenges I face. I’ve never talked about a lot of this stuff, certainly not all in one place. It was only when I thought back on all this that I realised how much I’ve gone through to get to this point. Kinda proud of myself, to be honest.
