On this week's podcast:

In January, I picked up a book in Australia by American author Bill Gertz. Called DECEIVING THE SKY: INSIDE COMMUNIST CHINA'S DRIVE FOR GLOBAL SUPREMACY, the book makes for a fascinating discussion.

I've been looking forward to talking to Gertz. Now you can hear it.

I have commentary on George Pell's acquittal and the death of Dr Fred Singer.


I briefly address Auckland governance and prime examples of media bias.

Carolyn, as expected, appears with correspondence and some cheap shots at your host.
