Politics podcast: Kris Faafoi and other tips for texting powerful MPs

Hell’s bells it’s Gone By Lunchtime, with Annabelle Lee, Ben Thomas and Toby Manhire shooting the breeze on Kris Faafoi, Jason Kerrison, Winston Peters, NZ First donations, a cannabis referendum, and the year to come.

Just when you thought politics was tucking under the duvet for Christmas, along comes the guy from bloody Opshop bringing some fishy text exchanges with the golden boy of the Cabinet, Kris Faafoi.

The Gone By Lunchtime podcast assembly, known to their friends as the Strike Podtor Force, size up a dramatic day in politics, and cast their 20/20 gaze back across the stories of recent times, such as the New Zealand First donations scandal, the Labour conference and their polling tribulations, plus the publication of the cannabis legislation.
