    BONUS: The Story of Jacinda Adern

    This week we've seen New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern cement her place as a leader of her generation.

    She's responded to the terror attacks in Christchurch with meaning and purpose, her people saying instead of feeling like she was above or removed from them, she was right there beside them.

    But who is Jacinda Ardern? Mamamia's new podcast The Quicky sat down with writer Amelia Lester who has spent time with one of the youngest world leaders and find out more about the woman currently holding New Zealand's top job.

    Fix This, Michael

    Fix This, Michael

    As Robert Mueller's investigation hones in on the big fish, former fixer Michael Cohen has officially been sentenced to a three year prison term for committing crimes at the direction of US President Donald Trump. Many people think this is the first prison sentence of many. But can Trump really be arrested? Plus, General John Kelly 'resigned' from his post as White House Chief of Staff, and Trump can't find anyone to replace him. With Mnuchin, Mulvaney and Ayers all declining the job offer, the White House corridors are increasingly empty. So Amelia and Mia ask the questions 'What happens next, and how does this end?'
