Politics podcast: mayoral thrills, byelection spills and Aaron Smith’s cubicles

In the Spinoff’s monthly politics recap, Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas join Toby Manhire for a power-walk through the topical rain forest.

If you’re interested in hearing what Toby, Ben and Annabelle have to say about the local elections, the excitements of Phil Goff, someone called Tana winning the Porirua mayoralty, voter turnout, a byelection in Mt Roskill, the 20th birthday of MMP, the Hobson’s Pledge thing, Marama Davidson’s Mediterranean cruise or John Key’s analysis of Aaron Smith’s toilet fucking, then this is the podcast for you.
