After 33 years behind the Newstalk ZB microphone, Leighton can’t give it up completely. There were so many requests to continue his opinionated commentary that the prospect of podcasting was born.

So, without restriction, Leighton continues to serve up on everything you want to hear about and some things you don’t. Stand by to be enlightened, educated and enraged!

Leighton is on summer break, so we are highlighting some of his favourite guests from 2022.

He Puapua, the report commissioned by the Ardern government, was completed in 2019 and secreted from the public.

Its existence was revealed after the 2021 election. There is belief that Labour would have suffered badly if it had been made public.

Constitutional Law Professor James Allan has written an analysis of He Puapua, and the reading of it is not pretty.
