If you've ever wondered what being a punter in American Football is like then this is the episode for you! In this episode I'm joined by James Evans, the 20 year old from Auckland, who is making a name for himself playing College Football for the Indiana Hoosiers. The size of college football in America is mind blowing where they are playing in sold out stadiums of up to 100,000 crazy football fans. On the back of that sort of following comes the money involved with it. Hearing about the facilities and their budget and comparing it to rugby here in NZ, it's on a whole different level. And of course James' journey to becoming a College Football player is a very cool one. A NZ rugby player who just loved kicking the ball, one day thought how cool it would be to only have to kick. After a short time at the Pro Kick academy, he has now pushed on to the big stage and hoping to push on to the NFL. As you'll here, James is a champion lad and after hearing his story I'm very excited to follow his journey.

Auckland commuters could be paying to drive on inner-city roads in future, with the government expected to announce congestion pricing next week as part of its final Emissions Reduction Plan. If it goes through, the charge could help reduce vehicle emissions by removing 12 per cent of traffic off the city's roads. A 2020 report called the Congestion Question recommended higher charges for peak time periods, starting at $1.50 for off-peak, $2.50 during shoulder times, and $3.50 for peak periods, with the charges only applied once within a two-hour window regardless of distance travelled, and no charge between 7pm and 6am. Kathryn discusses the issue with Auckland mayor Phil Goff, Michael Barnett of the Chamber of Commerce and Editor of urban advocacy group, Greater Auckland, Matt Lowrie.

Countdown's price freeze began today with 500 "essential" items to stay at the same price over winter. Some consumers have expressed disappointment at the lack of fresh produce, dairy and meat on the list. They say with prices at an all time high the freeze doesn't go far enough. So how much will shoppers really save? Or is it cheaper to shop elsewhere? And how do prices compare to Australia? In a statement Countdown said it would love to freeze the price of more fruit, veges, meat and dairy but they are more susceptible to seasonal conditions and global export prices. It says there are 640 items and when it can, it will look to add more items to the winter freeze. How to the prices compare in Australia? Countdown is a subsidiary of Woolworths, which last week promised price cuts on more than 300 seasonal staples for Australian shoppers.  Checkpoint's Australia correspondent Penny Sheffield went to a Woolworths supermarket in Sydney to do the same shop as our reporter Louise Ternouth in Auckland.  Louise's Countdown shop was NZ$238. Penny's bill in New Zealand dollars for 36 items was just under NZ$202 - almost $40 cheaper than our Auckland shop.

Jim has made it his mission to remove the pretension of the wine business, leading the way with a cultural program that includes wine, art, food, and history. And he's certainly succeeding.

Prior to that project, the Washington native was the lead in launching the tasting room experience of MacPhail Family Wines at The Barlow market complex in Sebastopol. Beyond those previous ventures, Morris has played an important role in helping to build complete winery experiences from the ground up, as he was instrumental in commencing the Direct to Consumer programs at St. Anne's Crossing Winery and Truett Hurst Winery respectively.
