Hey how's it going?

We haven't rerenamed ourselves yet, so there's still time to flick that recommendation through, brah.

In the news this hour: what we did in our weekend (raves, it turns out).  Smoking.  Being told off.  Pigeons.  Twitter.

This was recorded seven days ago.  World events of the weekend, should we ever talk about them, happened after this was recorded.

Hey,

Big things going on - we still need a name for one. At me.

Labour Party Conference was last weekend, and was atypically chill.  There's a a focus on the economy, but Boots Theory argues that doesn't mean they've neglected the human side of politics.

The disgraceful scenes in parliament show no sign of abating.  Nor the injustice in Australia.

Hey!

We are still BLUE STREAK while we figure out what we should actually be called. Got an idea? Yell it @_BlueStreak.

In the bloody news: Unemployment up, Wellington council contractors' pay up, Irish drug restrictions down, Goff sideways.

This was recorded well in advance of the travesty in parliament today. We'll get there.

Thanks everybody for sticking by us as we overhaul this mother.  Actually had a bit of a stats bump in the midst of this.  Did you all hate the old name after all?  Thanks for letting us know, you champions.

Hey, we've changed our name.  You may have know us as the Egonomist before, that's over.  We are, for the next couple of weeks, BLUE STREAK.  When we come up with something better, we'll change it again for good.  YOU CAN HELP!  Let us know your suggestions - gizza tweet.

Today we talk about Guy Fawkes, NZ First, Parihaka, Dave's cricket career, Prince Charles gets a kiss.
