Episode 1316: The View From New Zealand On Stealing Bundee, Wayne Barnes, And Joe Schmidt V Hansen, US Murph On Drew Brees, Ken Excited About Our New Alien Overlords
New Zealand’s media have decided that enough is enough – and they can’t bear to see ex-countrymen lining up against the All Blacks. We speak to Scotty Stevenson, columnist, author and Sky NZ commentator, about why Bundee Aki’s selection for Ireland is all of a sudden a hot-button issue, whether all marginal refereeing decisions go their way, and the ongoing Schmidt Hansen rivalry.
This is so mean-spirited. Attacking a player who gave his all every weekend like Brad Shields did here in NZ shows where the real lack of integrity is. https://t.co/unga9hdoaG

US Murph checks in from Hawaii to tell us about Drew Brees, dad of the year, human of the year, QB of the year and the man who brought a Superbowl to a New Orleans still reeling from Hurricane Katrina, and is still ‘slashing necks and cashing cheques’ in the NFL at 39.
And most importantly of all – we consider the futility of sport, life, etc in the face of the coming alien invasion. Ken refuses to be silenced, despite what the world’s deep state wants, and he brings you the news your government doesn’t want you to hear.

Forget about Trump and Brexit and the stories the media obsess about, says David McWilliams – what really shapes a society is incremental change. He joins Ken in studio today

Davy Fitz gets criticised, more so than maybe anyone else, but why does he feel the need to swing back at every pitch? We try and get to the bottom of the friendships he’s lost, the criticisms that have stung, and why he feels he’s mellowing with age https://t.co/8Pf77ieJYY pic.twitter.com/h2gfV4GrQz
