    Around the motu: Samantha Gee in Nelson

    Around the motu: Samantha Gee in Nelson

    Marlborough District Council wants to hear from the public on what should be done with Marlborough Sounds roads to make them safe and resilient against future flood events. Since that devastating rain in August, Samantha says it's been a rather dry summer, with the river flows so low in some places that the perennial toxic algae issue in the lower reaches of certain rivers - the Maitai in Nelson and the Waiiti in Tasman. Further down the coast in Greymouth, a conserve water notice has been in place for the Greater Greymouth area since January 4th and in Blackball since January 11. Greymouth has recently experienced some of the hottest recorded temperatures in over 75 years - which has put extreme pressure on local water supplies with usage being more than double the typical amount in some instances.

Amazing host

Katheryn is such an impressive host who manages to combine intellectual interviews on an amazingly wide range of deep and/or sensitive topics. Head and shoulders above most others. I compare her to a wonderful host for the BBC who managed to “drop a word in the ear of the nation”. Kathryn does the same here for NZ with grace and intelligence.
She gets my vote.

Could be better

Great topics covered and interviewees, but the host doesn’t give them enough time to speak (and spends each interview commenting on the time remaining).

Elby One ,

Kathryn Ryan

often seems like the interviewee here, talking over her guests with her sanctimonious sludge. Hard. Very hard to listen to.
