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.

Hi. Bernie Sanders has announced he's going to run for president; oh boy. Can the next couple of years' worth of infighting and rhetoric be predicted this far out? Sure. Have we used this title pun before already? Don't sure.

Venezuela still! As if the world wasn't already an unbearable cynical pit of fire, this serves as a reminder of the weaponisation of the humanitarian instinct and all the wars it has precipitated before. Luckily there are punchable billionaires in the frame to anchor you to the hellish reality.

As Brexit starts to resemble the sort of thing David Blane would do to himself in public we take a look at British exceptionalism. 

Also! Lime scooters, Capital Gains Tax, and the www.righttoselfid.nz campaign.

The Taiping rebellion was the deadly one in the 19thC and the Boxer rebellion was the less deadly one in the 20thC. You don't need to write in about that but feel free to write in I guess? It would be nice to hear from you. 

Bumper music!
