Coalition policy negotiations are over and it seems that the three parties are now talking about Ministerial positions with David Seymour making a run for Deputy PM. How times have changed. It wasn't but 10 weeks ago that Seymour vocalised no interest in the position, but now he's likely keener to see Winston not in the position, than his desire to have it National MP has been caught out making tasteless comments with racial undertones, so it appears this leopard can't change their spots. We'll take a look at new MP Cameron Brewer and what he had to say Forest & Bird make bank thanks to Jon Oliver and Last Week Tonight. We'll take a look at the three weeks of coverage Mr Oliver has given NZ and the Bird of the Century competition, and how Forrest & Bird have financially benefitted from this exposure. Councils across the country are having difficulty with their water infrastructure and many people in NZ are drinking water at a lower quality than most of the developed world...if only someone had a plan to look after NZ's drinking water infrastructure and maybe they could bundle in a couple of other water infrastructures as well...but I guess dreams are free. ================================================ Help us by nominating #BHN for the people's choice award at https://www.nzpodcastawards.com/nominate.

The competition closes tonight at 5pm, and voters all over the world will be waiting with bated breath as the results will be revealed next Wednesday.

"Our previous record for votes was two years ago, where we got a top number of 56,000. We'd pretty much clocked that within a couple of hours of the Last Week Tonight show, featuring John Oliver's impassioned rant." LISTEN ABOVE See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

For more than three decades, Phil Williams has set the standard in Nashville for serious investigative journalism on the state and local level, earning him honors and praise from his peers and, now, the local community.At WTVF-5, the CBS affiliate owned by The E.W. Scripps Co., Williams attracted outsized attention for his coverage of a mayoral race in Franklin, Tenn., that drew national attention — and death threats. His on-air efforts exposing falsehoods and a candidate's link to white supremacists, which led to the defeat of the controversial aspiring Mayor, also resulted in a full-page ad in the city's newspaper that directly saluted Williams for displaying “utmost professionalism, even when they encountered threats to their personal safety.”To discuss how Williams uncovered the sordid tales surrounding Gabrielle Hanson, which gained national attention and a lengthy story on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Williams joins RBR+TVBR Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson on the latest InFOCUS Podcast, presented by dot.FM.

New Mexico's largest county jail in Albuquerque has been historically understaffed, overcrowded, and marred by inmate deaths during detox. In 1995, a federal lawsuit cited overcrowding as a factor in violating inmates' rights, while also accusing Bernalillo County of providing inadequate medical and mental health care at the the facility. Today, the Metropolitan Detention Center is decades into navigating a settlement agreement in that lawsuit. Meanwhile, the pressure on the jail continues, as law enforcement officials have highlighted its importance in being the first opportunity to connect someone with a variety of substance and behavioral health treatments. So how could a new healthcare provider at the Metropolitan Detention Center improve those issues and ultimately, impact crime? Since the University of New Mexico Hospital (UNMH) took over as the healthcare provider for inmates this summer, there have already been some major changes. This week, Chris and Gabby host Rodney McNease of UNMH for an extended conversation about what's at play. As mentioned in the episode, here's a link to the "Last Week Tonight" segment from early October, covering the issue of health care in detention facilities. And here's a link to a dashboard featuring information about MDC's current inmate population. We appreciate our listeners. Send your feedback or story ideas to hosts email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We're also on Twitter (X), Facebook, & Instagram at @ChrisMcKeeTV and @gburkNM.
