On the show today, we start with a mihi to Huirangi Waikerepuru - a stalwart of Aotearoa and tino rangatiratanga, and champion of Te Reo Māori me ōna tikanga. Lillian had only just heard not long before the show started and was left a little speechless at the loss.
We will hear from Labour’s Andrew Little once again about what’s on the table in his review of Hate Speech Law and Electoral Registration for Prisoners.
Rachel interviewed Dr Paul Taillon from the University of Auckland about the labour crisis in the United States.
Mary-Margaret also catches up with Radio Adelaide’s Zoe Kounadis about there still not being a lockdown in Australia, and this week’s historic quashing of convictions against George Pell.
We have our updates from the Epidemic Response Committee meeting today where a large focus has been placed on the data being released - with new data having been released from MSD, and the announcement of weekly data coming from them with a breakdown of what benefits and subsidies are being provided.
Lillian speaks with NZ First deputy leader Fletcher Tabuteau and we touch base on the overseas New Zealanders and also the Epidemic Response Committee of which he is a member.
