Politics podcast: A classic hits election with one month to go


The very latest from the Ardernified election campaign, which has claimed yet another leader resignation.

Fresh from having read all 140 pages of the Prefu just minutes after it was published, Annabelle Lee, Ben Thomas and Toby Manhire rest their chins upon their fingers and analyse the issues of the moment.

How is National coping with the Labour momentum under Jacinda Ardern? Is Labour’s position on tax a bit crap? How will we remember Peter Dunne? Does anyone give a flying fuck about Gareth Morgan? And just how nighmarish a metaphor can Ben Thomas conjure up to explain what Labour has done to the Greens?
