Politics podcast: Simon Bridges, you, and the Ihumātao groundswell


Annabelle Lee-Mather, Toby Manhire and Ben Thomas feast on the political morsels of the month. including the National Party conference and a challenge to Jacinda Ardern over Ihumātao. Plus: a new jingle.

The Gone By Lunchtime team look at Simon Bridges’ efforts to firm up his leadership with just over a year to the election, and his “part-time prime minister” swipe.

Jacinda Ardern is in Tokelau, but should she have made the effort to personally visit Ihumātao, and does the protest movement there presage something bigger?

But first, an overwhelming response to our call for new theme submissions.
