Join hosts Jesse Thorn (NPR's Bullseye) and Jordan Morris (Comedy Central's @Midnight) and a celebrity guest on a rau ...

The Flop House joins Blank Check to talk about this remake that was like okay, but definitely better than the last Demme remake. Is Meryl good or weird? Why is a pack of cards so sexy?

The very week the government looks to legislate on vaping, guess what happens? To serve as a reminder I guess that you can do whatever you want around legislating stuff, you’ll never control the black market. Or squash it, 12 to 13 year old school children are being approached in a busy shopping precinct in Auckland and if it’s happening in Aucklan…
 
As Scotland becomes a world leader in making steps to offer free sanitary products, calls are being made for New Zealand to follow suit.

Dignity New Zealand founder Jacinta Gulasekharam told Kate Hawkesby they…
 
Official figures show we're producing more milk, with fewer cows. Better investment in technology is being credited for the increase.

Shane Ardern joined Kate Hawkesby to ex…

There's a lot of chat around plant based and meat free and veganism these days. Whether it’s a fad or a long term thing, whose embracing it, whose not, what it means for New Zealanders, for farmers, and so on. We seem to be dedicating a lot of column inches to how we eat, what we eat, why we eat, what we shouldn’t eat. And while I’m a big fan of fo…

COMMENT: So what did we learn yesterday? We learned that this 'transformational Government' whose own Prime Minister came into politics purely to stamp out child poverty hasn't managed to do so. In fact, they've fallen well short. The figures out yesterday show no significant change in material hardship. So what's happened here? Were they naive in …

I ummed and ahhed about writing about this because, in doing so, I’m doing exactly what I’m about to complain about. Why is the fact Jesse Ryder’s been charged with drink driving news? I feel bad for him. He’s clearly got demons to battle, he obviously has a problem with alcohol; how does us being judge and jury help him one bit? Why do we report i…

The bill goes before parliament this…

We had the Drug Foundations Ross Bell on earlier in the show, claiming a study they've done, with questions commissioned by the Helen Clark Foundation showing support for cannabis legalisation at 50 percent.

COMMENT I was fascinated to read Bruce Cotterill's recent article on meetings. Cotteril is a company director and advisor to business leaders.

I have long been a believer that meeting…

I spoke yesterday to about the most sensible person we’ve ever had on this show. Ruth Money is a victims advocate, and she makes a lot of sense when it comes to the right to silence law.

Last week I had issues with Wilson Parking, this week it's Auckland Transport. It's getting increasingly difficult to get around this city without problems.
