Politics podcast: Farewell to Parata and Cunliffe, hello to PM-for-a-day Bennett

Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas brave the Spinoff stairwell of doom to join Toby Manhire for another Gone By Lunchtime, the hi-energy Zumba workout of political podcasting.

The Spinoff political podcast trio abandon all good sense and attempt to analyse the auditor-general’s report into the Saudi sheep farrago and what it means for Murray McCully even before it is published. They fearlessly assess the legacies of exiting MPs Hekia Parata and David Cunliffe, they recall that day last month when Paula Bennett was running the country and the future leadership of the National Party, they ruminate on Mt Roskill byelection “bribes” and they share every thought they can summon about the Max Key scandal.
