The Long Way Home podcast

Long Way Home (RNZ)

Tim from Radio New Zealand flagged a new programme from their stable, "A podcast that is running now is our unique ‘real time’ podcast that follows actor Bruce Hopkins (incl Lord of the Rings) as he walks form one end of NZ to the other, carrying the ashes of his dead father and brother back to where they were born, on Stewart Is.

The Words podcast

It’s topical and thought-provoking with flashes of frustration and anger."

Cocaine and Rhinestones

Recommended by the Pod People newsletter, "I've been meaning to mention this podcast for awhile: Cocaine and Rhinestones is a deep dive into the stories and characters that make up country music. You really don't need to be a country music fan to listen to these jaw-dropping stories. Sex, drugs, and fist fights are just the beginning and that's just the story of the Judds."
