Best politics podcast (in NZ and the world)

The combo of Toby, Annabelle and Ben was genius. It is always the first podcast I listen to when a new ep comes out. Very insightful perspectives and seriously funny

Replacement please

Dirty politics shouldn’t be encouraged. Ben is another Hooten. There’s cleverer voices on the right.
Cheers
