    Summer reissue: Derek Cheng would rather be climbing

    Summer reissue: Derek Cheng would rather be climbing

    The Fold is taking a short break over summer. We'll be back with new episodes soon, but until then here's one of our favourites from 2021.
    While most press gallery journalists go to sleep and dream of politics, NZ Herald's Derek Cheng has another true love: climbing. Duncan first met him at a press gallery party, where he was barefoot, cooking up sausages on a barbecue, and since learning of the journalist’s intense passion for climbing, has been intrigued to find out more. In this episode Derek talks about his climbing, a serious injury that brought him back home to New Zealand and why Covid-19 was such a fascinating time to be in the beehive.

    Guy Williams on making New Zealand Today into a podcast

    Guy Williams on making New Zealand Today into a podcast

    Comedian Guy Williams became a household name in New Zealand off the back of his regular appearances on Jono and Ben, and has remained on television in a “volunteer journalist” capacity on his own show New Zealand Today. That show now has a spinoff podcast of the same name, which Williams is co-hosting with former guest Karen Hill of viral “wants her $20 back” fame. He joins Duncan Greive to talk about making the show, why a podcast is his logical next step as a “mediocre white man”, and his friendship with Karen.

Cafrican ,

Love the info

Duncan, you’re so passionate about this and love your big words - makes me feel intelligent

Spikkled ,

So damn interesting

This shouldn’t be anywhere near as good as it is. Should be dry, and a little on the boring side. It’s not. Great mix of folk in the media space, being interviewed that all have some interesting things to say.

My fave!

The best podcast for NZ media tragics. 👍👍
