Welcome to Kiwi Yarns - those yarns you have where you sit down, put the kettle on, pour a whiskey or crack open a beer I honestly don‘t mind. Anyway! We‘re sitting down and we’re yarning to some great New Zealanders, their back stories, their front stories, even stories where they went sideways, we will go there. It’s a place where we celebrate the great people of this glorious nation.

    Emma Twigg

    Emma Twigg

    Emma Twigg personifies a never give up attitude and we all were witness to that when she won Gold at the Tokyo Olympics.


    I'm pretty sure most of us cried when she crossed the finish line, because we felt the heartbreak she'd had with a fourth in London and another fourth in Rio. And this time, she'd done what she always knew she could do.


    A champion rower with an amazing story about how it all went right on the day.

    Ollie Lucks

    We're chatting to filmmaker Ollie Lucks, who has just released his doco/fly-on-the wall film There’s No I in Threesome. Ollie also stars in this as it's a true story about him and his fiancée, and their decision to open up their relationship and share their exploration of polyamory in the build up to their wedding. 


    Polyamory specifically refers to people who have multiple romantic relationships at the same time.


    And look this is a spoiler without it really being a spoiler - the relationship doesn’t end well. But by crikey it leaves us with a delightfully interesting, sad and fascinating film.


    Available to watch on Neon from 18 November.

    Tegan Yorwarth is a bright young radio star who is destined for big things.


    She's one third of the brilliant Mai FM Morning Crew and she’s already a wonderful role model for young women - simply through her relatability, her honesty, her presence, not to mention she’s extremely talented.


    A lovely chat with a stunning gal!

    Abbas Nazari

    Abbas Nazari

    Today’s guest is a remarkable young man with an incredible story. Abbas Nazari was just seven-years old when he and his family fled the Taliban in Afghanistan - and experienced a journey that would last for months - including being stuck onboard the Tampa. This was the boat that Australia horrifically turned its back on resulting in an international stand off 20 years ago. Abbas and his family were accepted to come to New Zealand to be resettled - and it’s from here this amazing man and his amazing family started a new life…


    The Fulbright Scholar has written After The Tampa: From Afghanistan to New Zealand and it's an absolute must-read, along with this absolute must-listen episode!


    Available at bookstores throughout NZ.

    Matthew Saville

    Matthew Saville

    Matthew Saville and I recorded our first episode way back in August when he was JUST about to release his first feature length film Juniper.


    And, well, we all know what happened in August (Delta came) which meant his release date was postponed.


    So we thought we’d catch up again seeing as August feels like ten years ago, to chat about this amazing film I thoroughly enjoyed.


    Matthew has worked extensively as a writer, director, and actor across film, theatre, and television.


    Amazingly, for his first feature length he managed to secure award-winning actress Charlotte Rampling to travel across the world to play Ruth, the alcoholic Grandmother.


    Juniper will be out in cinemas across New Zealand from October 28.
