Regional New Zealand is struggling in real life but is literally a dream for Dan.
Jacinda Ardern played a bonus stage to gain experience and suddenly levelled up. Jane Clifton, who's name I utterly forgot during the episode, had this to say.
Bill English has had a bit of time to settle into the job of leading the nation, but apparently decided nah.
But mostly; an ex-MP wrote a sexy novel about MPs. It is utterly amazing.
Hello! Sorry about the delay!
I know we said we wouldn't be on this every episode but the Trump administration is just too bizarre. Is there a wider geopolitical game of statecraft here, or is it all just dumb, ugly graft?
We resurrect MBC's for a Fake News Special - the topic; pornography.
And we get deep stuck in to the recent kerfuffle regarding Willie Jackson and the Labour Party. Is there a divide between unreasonable wooly liberal identitarians and good keen kiwi economic battlers? Did one of them tell you that? Did he have a moustache? In the battle between progressivism and conservative leftist sexism the fault of the progressives? We apparently need to ask?

Hi, we're back for the first episode recorded this year, 2017.
A fair bit has happened. But first, birth! How does post-collapse survivalism account for the miracles of modern medicine which only society provides?
Trump has been president for only a few short catastrophes but already the doom is setting in. Check out the podcast This Week In Atrocity as mentioned in this episode coz it's not like we're gonna be able to keep up all by ourselves.
Kevin and the art of party economisation. Dan comes face to face with a wild call out.
And it's election year - the MoU between Labour and the Greens gives NZLP some leeway to its right, but is social conservatism the way to play? How anti-Winston is it possible to be? This recording has been overtaken by events so I'm not sure we stand by the conclusions we come to here, given how strawy this camel is getting.
And Peter Thiel's pisstaking of the NZ polity leaves us all red faced, but specifically the dolts who can't see beyond their industry.
Wiley - Back With A Banger
Yello - Oh Yeah
Bombfunk MCs - Freestyler
Murder 1 - No Woman No Cry
It's that time of year again where we round up the best, worst, most embarrassing and disappointing moments of 2016 in popular music. We stayed relatively sober and focused this year and the results this time are are, at the very least, listenable. 2016 was a morbid year, but far from moribund.
Featuring our musical correspondent Mike of Riot Radio.

Playlist is roughly first third Dan, middle third Mike, final third Dave.
