Hey man!

We live in a material world, and opinions are material, girl.  What can Harambe can teach us about Post Truth Politics?

Also, Wellington will soon elect a brand new mayor.  Who cares, and why you should too?

And Kevin has had an alright week, mostly pills and techno.

Hey!

The DNC happened and Clinton is the democratic nominee.  Nobody died of surprise, but what does this mean for the contest of political ideas?  Also, the GOP and the fast food strategy.

Helen Clark is standing for the position of UN Sec Gen and it is not mandatory that you support her.  Kevin Rudd is not standing and it is mandatory that you laugh.

Housing is an issue, isn't it?

And a second Kevin is disappointed.

Bumper music:

CHVRCHES: Empty Threat
Massive Attack: Inertia Creeps
The Verve: Velvet Morning
Paula Cole: I Don't Want To Wait
