Episode #24: Protect Ihumātao, an interview with Pania Newton (+ other SHPP nonsense)

This episode follows the Politburo on our trip to Ihumātao and beyond. The show was recorded in two parts. Everything other than Snitch the Sitch was recorded while very not sober, which we hope adds to the charm.

The episode starts with a nonsensical description of our day from a very blazed Ti. It’s mostly coherent and pretty funny.

Concerned Comrades is a lot this week. Justine and Ti get through the first two questions with a straight face before completely losing it in the last question and forgetting to re-record it. You get the joyful mess that is two best buds trying to be serious but struggling hard af.

Snitch the Sitch takes us to Ihumātao, where Emmy, Justine and Ti interview Pania Newton, one of the leaders of the peaceful occupation of stolen land. The interview outlines the history of the land, its importance, the struggle to reclaim it, as well as what you can do to help. You can find out more on their website here: www.protectihumatao.com/.

Finally, in Come in My Library, we read another gem from our returning champion Mike Hosking. Somehow Justine’s takes get 10x hotter when high but Ti just becomes a mess. You’re so welcome.
