His Worship talks money well spent, right? $600,000 towards private investigators helping to stop graffiti, and Christmas entertainment, of course. We're sensing a few themes this week, Merry Christmas Mayor.
His Worship reckons $250m on the America's cup should be enough, 'cause you know, return on investment and that. Mike and the Mayor also discuss the tragic events that have unfolded over the last week, are we doing enough to reduce domestic violence?
Mike and His Worship talk about those who fought for New Zealand and remembering their legacy. Despite being the Mayor of Auckland, we're also here to talk about the wider matters for New Zealanders. We'll talk more about Tāmaki Makaurau next week, promise.
His Worship is talking big plans for Auckland city, as well as his throne, and those heavy, oh so sacred, chains. Covering the costs of Eden Park, new plans for the viaduct and Kauri dieback, are we actually doing enough Phil?
His Worship talks the latest form of transport around Tāmaki Makaurau, electric scooters... Easy commute or rogue hazard? The Mayor isn't convinced. Phil also catches up with Mike about special visitors to New Zealand and, of course, Guyfawkes.
His Worship talks to Tess about the future of Auckland city's waterfront, can we expect a brand new shiny stadium? And what about smokefree 2025, how's that looking? And wow, all these electric bikes everywhere! Is _this_ the future?
Phil and Mike catch up over all sorts this week, including how the Mayor is looking forward to getting his motorbike out with these warmer months coming. Also covering the cost of wages, homeless count, and, oh yeah, the St. James, what is happening with that Phil?
