AmeriNZ 401 – The week with missing days

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016I lost several days last week after I hurt myself. Oops. I talk about that first today, and then a bit about the New Zealand General Election because Advance Voting began on Monday. It’ll be interesting to see what happens (which is a nice way of saying no one has any idea what’s going to happen).

AmeriNZ 398 – 17 and 28

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016Today’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.

AmeriNZ 393 – Movable barrier

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016The weather is still a barrier—but I managed to move around it.

AmeriNZ 391 – Winter daze
