The Leighton Smith Podcast

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 will continue to serve up on everything you want to hear about and some things you don’t. Stand by to be enlightened, educated and enraged!... Show More

I’ve always liked Alan Duff. Well, as close to always as I remember. He’s got guts, courage and determination. He doesn’t pull punches.
And it’s been a while since I talked to him. Alan’s new book, A Conversation With My Country, gave us the chance. The discussion runs for forty minutes but I wasn’t watching the clock. 
For those who are unfamiliar with Duff, let me introduce you.
There was so many other matters that I ended up passing them on to next week’s podcast, but I do get stuck into plastic bags and manipulating green activists, and a couple of other topics.
There’s also some good feedback. Feel free to write, comment, critique, politely or otherwise.
