MEDIAWATCH: Political podcast Gone by Lunchtime



I’m listening to this so you don’t have to. It was a mix between state-funded social engineering propaganda on The Spin-off or state-funded social engineering propaganda on Stuff where they just launched a new podcast examining the impact of the news on women.

I’m not kidding, they really did.

So I went with the shorter of the two evils and listened to The Spin-offs’ in-house production of their political podcast “Gone by Lunctime”.

Winding, harmless nonsense that slowly leads nowhere?

Is it their political debate?

Duncan Grieve makes a surprise entry to brag about how much money NZ on Air has given them, then begs listeners overwhelmingly for MORE money!

The show regains its icy tone and I struggle to find a reason to keep breathing.

How is this annoyance funded by NZ on Air?

There has to be a new political podcast broadcast live by much funnier people available on Spotify and ROVA and Apple Podcasts and YouTube by the end of this month, dammit!
