Politics podcast: Metiria Turei’s Winz confession, Labour’s alt-budget and the Māori seats

gblt5

Our answer to the ‘Black Hands’ podcast is ‘Rainbow Hands’, in which the Gone By Lunchtime team scoff so many M&Ms that their fingers get covered in artificial colouring. Also they discuss politics.

With less than two months to polling day, Annabelle Lee, executive producer of The Hui, returns to the GBLT pod salon, joining Ben Thomas of Exceltium and Toby Manhire of the Spinoff to discuss the Green co-leader’s headline grabbing admission of benefit fraud, the contrast with tax evasion, Labour’s alternative budget proposition, and Annabelle explains why Winston Peters is a rom-com.

Plus, in open defiance of the schooling from professional broadcaster Guy Williams, guest star of the last pod, the confectionery remains the beating heart of the production, with all its sonorous slurping and spluttering.

Behind the scenes of Scribe’s new documentary

'We knew that potentially it could be an incomplete or unfinished story arc and that the end of the story might well be Scribe's vanished again.'
