Politics podcast: Those ‘first day back at the office’ blues (RIP Paddles)

Annabelle Lee, Ben Thomas, Toby Manhire and the land’s favourite baby podcaster discuss an embarrassing start for the new government in parliament, Winston Peters’ legal blizzard, the state of the National Party “monster” opposition, and Paddles the cat.
