    Tracey Martin has the hardest job in NZ media

    Tracey Martin has the hardest job in NZ media

    The former NZ First MP is leading the establishment board for ANZPM – the new entity which will run RNZ and TVNZ as they re-merge into a brand new, fit-for-the-future media powerhouse. Because they’re also being given nine figures a year by the government, the merger is causing consternation among private sector media – and Martin is tasked with figuring out how to keep everyone from freaking out.

    Janine Morrell-Gunn on a groundbreaking career in television

    Janine Morrell-Gunn on a groundbreaking career in television

    She was arrested during the 1981 Springbok tour, not long after being announced as head girl of her high school – whatever she does, Janine Morrell-Gunn does it with her whole heart. Since those early peaks, she set off into the TVNZ newsroom of the 80s, before traversing into her life’s work in kid’s TV. She co-founded Whitebait Media, the iconic Ōtautahi studio behind What Now?, The Erin Simpson Show and many other hits, influencing generations of tamariki. She was just bestowed the NZ TV Legend award, and joined The Fold to look back on a singular screen career.

    Mister Organ has David Farrier hanging by a thread

    He’s no stranger to chasing down oddballs on the internet, but Mister Organ saw David Farrier finally meet his match in his second feature length documentary. It began with a story about clamping that became a huge hit saga on The Spinoff, and ended with legal threats flying and some deeply freaky confrontations. Farrier joins Duncan Greive on The Fold to discuss the film, his hit newsletter Webworm and all the fascinating and formally inventive moves he's made over his career.

    Madeleine Chapman on her first year editing The Spinoff

    Madeleine Chapman on her first year editing The Spinoff

    She started her career at The Spinoff as a 22-year-old intern in 2016, and became its editor five years later. In between time she wrote two books and became one of the most admired writers of her generation for her wit, intellect and originality. Then she got a job she didn’t even want, becoming one of the youngest editors of a “mainstream” publication ever. Madeleine Chapman sits down with Duncan Greive to reflect on her unconventional path to the role, the early years of The Spinoff and some of her most iconic pieces of writing.

    Jon Duffy on Consumer as the original member-funded media organisation

Yet the challenges facing our consumers are big and complex, and the membership base is shrinking. He joins The Fold to explain why Consumer exists, and how it is evolving in the modern media environment.

    Chris Parker is at his peak but still pining

    One of the most talented creatives working in Aotearoa today, Chris Parker seems to never have met a medium he can’t master. He joins The Fold to talk about his new book, but we also traverse his comedy, his plays, his Instagram, his felting and his extraordinary reality TV appearances. But the most revelatory part of the conversation concerns why he still can’t get his dreams on screens.
