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

Good to be back home.
This week, politicians including Justin Trudeau, Joe Biden, Jacinda Ardern.
Michael Mann, Political scientist. Lost in his lawsuit against Dr Tim Ball and his complaint against the NZH, albeit in 2004. But at least there’s consistency!
A conversation with Casey Costello, from Hobson’s Pledge Trust about transparency and accountability in local government. There is an attempt underway to undermine the political system and most voters are unaware of it.
And some very good feedback this week with jet-lagged Mrs Producer. I know how she feels.
And an extra - check out this video featuring Thomas Sowell on global warning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rweblFwt-BM

Murder in Oregon
Murder in Oregon
In January of 1989 the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, Michael Francke, was brutally stabbed to death outside his office in Salem. The murder was quickly ruled a “car burglary gone wrong” and pinned on a low-level drug dealer named Frank Gable, a man who Francke's own brother, Kevin, along with storied Oregon reporter Phil Stanford, believe has been wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 30 years. They believe Francke had uncovered a trail of corruption in the prison system— one that led to the top of Oregon’s political establishment. Murder In Oregon follows the two men on a decades-long journey, bordering on obsession, into Oregon’s drug and crime-infested underworld to answer one question: Who really killed Michael Francke?
