At The Drive (formerly known as The Egonomist); your premier source for rants, raves and arguments on topics from Politics to News to Social Trends, with a focus on New Zealand but with an eye to the world. Each week Dan and Dave will bring you new episodes. Sometimes deep and philosophical, sometimes filth and vitriol, we aim to be a voice of informed malcontent.

We finally watched Rising Sun and, yeah, it's trash.

In the news, gang koha, rehabilitation costs and looking after stranded wildlife come under fire from the right because they are not free. Dan sees sandwich crime. Farmers are angry. There you go

Hi;

Toilet party etiquette; when is it ok to use the party facilities for what they were actually designed? Is Lana Del Ray your cousin?

The UK announces cessation of covid mitigations! Ha. NZ's National party wants a debate, albeit about an unsurprisingly narrow group of things.

Haiti's president was assassinated. Literal bloodletting in politics' upper circles is rare, but is it surprising? The US pulls out of Afghanistan at great speed. See War Nerd for more details.

Bumper music;

John Lewis - Baby Bay

Lana Del Ray - The Next Best American Record

Gerry and the Pacemakers - ferry across the mersey

DJ Shadow - Six Days (Remix feat. Mos Def)

Donald Rumsfeld is dead, ending one of the world's greatest KD ratios of all time.

And lord knows the meat of this will wait for another episode, but Collins is doing bad things, badly.

 

Bumper music;

Babylon Zoo - Spaceman

Buse and Gase - Bubbles

Lucy Dacus - VBS

Kira Skov & Mark Lanegan - Idea of Love
