    US Election Special: Tick Tick Goes to Washington

    Sure, Tick Tick is 'Stuff's 2020 Election Podcast', but we never specified WHICH country's election, did we? So, now that NZ's electoral process is pretty much wound up, we turn our attention to the rolling maul that is the 2020 US presidential election. What's it all about? Is Trump really that bad? What on earth is the electoral college? And why is Eugene expressing his gratitude to an oven-cooked tuber in the medium of song? Special (American) guests: columnist Tracey Barnett and politics senior lecturer Dr Maria Armoudian.

    Cannabis and euthanasia - your burning referendum questions answered

    Two ticks good - four ticks better. Alongside the general election this year, New Zealanders get to vote on two referendum questions - one about euthanasia and the other about cannabis. A week out from polling day, Adam and Eugene hit the streets to ask voters if there are things they need to know before they make their choices. And then, with the help of Stuff reporters Hannah Martin and Joel MacManus, they find the answers. Plus: David Seymour and Chlöe Swarbrick get just 90 seconds each to make their last-minute cases.

    Behind the scenes at the third - and greatest - Ardern v Collins debate

In this special episode, they bring you all the colour, and ponder what it all means. With polling day looming, what did it tell us about Jacinda Ardern and Judith Collins?

What a soft interview with Collins

Original review: What a soft interview with Collins. When she didn’t answer their questions (eg about Brownlee’s comments) they didn’t press her at all but just let her deflect them away to other topics. And they didn’t ask her at all about her past involvement with Dirty Politics or the Oravida corruption. The only allusion to her past mistakes and controversies was saying “some of your caucus don’t like you and have said nasty things about you.” The podcast basically functioned as a fluff piece for National.

Edit: Aside from that one episode (and generally the interviews with leaders aren’t great), the podcast is quite good.
