GALWAD, an ambitious, multiplatform arts project set in Wales, imagines what it would be like if we could receive messages from people living in 2052. Audiences can follow the story as it unfolds across the week, both online and on social media, and watch a broadcast of the whole event on Sky Arts. The lead producer Claire Doherty and lead writer Owen Sheers, explain why they wanted to push the boundaries of storytelling.

After a three-week break, it's finally RACE WEEK. The Singapore Grand Prix returns to host a Formula 1 Grand Prix after a three year hiatus. Since three is the number in play, will this prove to be a lucky hunting ground for driver who races car #3 (Daniel Ricciardo, of course)? Of course, there's a greater chance that driver who raced car #33 (Max Verstappen, remember?) till last year is the downright favourite. But let's look back before we look forward?

THE THESIS: The Party paid to get Covid deaths, Covid “cases” and Covid Panic Porn. They are also paying to keep the mRNA injuries and deaths wrapped up in the Propaganda of Silence(™). THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: It's my belief that living in spiritual blindness will eventually lead to complete blindness to truth. After all, God is truth. Deuteronomy 28:28-29 The Lord will smite you with madness and with blindness and with bewilderment of heart; and you will grope at noon, as the blind man gropes in darkness, and you will not prosper in your ways; but you shall only be oppressed and robbed continually, with none to save you. Romans 1:20-22 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, More on the consequences of Spiritual Blindness THE NEWS & COMMENT: First, the good news about free speech. This is fantastic! Twitter and Facebook and YouTube lose; the First Amendment wins; A federal appellate court just blew up the absurd argument that the world's largest carriers of speech and journalism can censor views they don't like. Next stop, the Supreme Court . . .. it's also a starting point. WIth the exception of Gab and Truth Social, the social media companies are extensions of The Party. I call for investigations of all collusion between government and media. Yes, the Mockingbird Media is biased. That's sort of old news [AUDIO] - In March 2021, the mayor of Gila Bend, AZ – population under 2K – pleaded for help as Biden bussed illegal immigrants to the city without coordination. There was no outrage from Democrats. If you aren't a rich, liberal community, they just don't care. - from the Republican National Committee But, this is not simply bias we are watching and it's not stupidity (at least not from the top). What we are witnessing ts a controlled-media environment. [AUDIO] - CNN's Don Lemon tells royal commentator Hilary Fordwich the royal family should pay reparations — immediately regrets it Finally, I am not alone is stating it that way . . . [AUDIO] - Former ITV and Sky News boss Mark Sharman at a press conference (February 2022) on the CV scam. He is addressing injuries and deaths from the mRNA clot-shots which the Mockingbirds all ignore Teen Suffers Heart Attack After Cross Country Race, Baffled Doctors Find 2 Blood Clots and Blocked Artery Even as they begin to tell some truths about the so-called boosters as did NBC 10 in Philadelphia -- thank you! [AUDIO] - Dr. Paul Offit, one of the world's most respected vaccine experts, is now officially an anti-vaxxer! Welcome to the club, Paul. Now, people are beginning to talk openly about the Covid death $500,000 bounty The Party placed on hospitals. URGENT: Daniel Horowitz shared this from Dr. Lxx Fxx as to usual practice in hospitals when our parent, grand-parent, you, anyone, based on hospital COVID Protocol to collect the $500,000 per patient $500,000 per COVIDized patient & thus the COVID Protocol to ensure they collected for each patient; this is why I have called for CEOs, Fauci, Birx, Bancel, Bourla, Francis Collins, all, to be JAILED! . . . but, Mark Sharman, former ITV/BBC Sky boss could just as easily be addressing the dangerously corrupt color revolution agitators at the FBI John Durham's final act: exposing the FBI Major Garrett is deeply concerned about erosion of what he chooses to call a democracy, so deeply concerned that he abides by the blockade of information on why people believe election fraud is rampant. [AUDIO] - .@MajorCBS warns of a dark political outlook “if we enter a phase of American life where either political party refuses to accept a fair and verified election simply because it lost, then we will dismantle democracy bit by bit before our very eyes.” . . . if the Mockingbird Media continues to suppress the valid reasons for concern or, worse, to wrap them up as the elites saving us from ourselves, like Time Magazine did in their infamous piece on how The Party “fortified” the election of 2020, that will mean people will reasonably conclude the media is in on the theft. How is it that Zach Abraham and others like him tell more truth about how The Party conjures money and rewards itself with illegal infusions of conjured financial digits, than the entire Mockingbird Media class. [AUDIO] - “People are shocked by their grocery bills. What can you do better and faster?” BIDEN: “Inflation rate month-to-month was up just an inch, hardly at all.” . . . again, just like the black holes of trust in our election system, many people see what's happening and, as a consequence, they know what the Mockingbirds are hiding. [AUDIO] - With Housing Bubble 2.0 starting to crater and the Fed poised to trigger a new Great Financial Crisis, this Irishman's epic rant from 2008 is more timely and relevant than ever. Alex Hilton on Twitter: My mum got this @BritishGas. This is insane. It's not stupidity and here's more proof. The Mockingbird Media can report the truth--they haven't forgotten how to do that--and, when they do so, it's illuminating . . .. . . but, all too often it is tied to another agenda, like this: See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Red Bull Racing haven't scored a single podium at Monza in the hybrid-turbo era. But we expect that to change this Sunday. Yes, it is tough to imagine someone other than Max Verstappen winning the 2022 Italian Grand Prix...in front of the tifosi. As for Ferrari, let's hope the dash of yellow in their special livery brings better performance & results. Mercedes has scored more points (average) than Ferrari since the 2022 Australian GP (basically, since race #3).

In today's episode, we want to cover I suppose it's a concept, but it's also a new story that we saw recently this week, whereby Disney plus up-and-coming young whippersnapper on the streaming market that's eating Netflix's. I suppose they haven't announced it, but they're suggesting that they will introduce two-tiered pricing whereby you pay less, maybe about $8 US a month, but you might have to watch advertisements, or you can pay more and avoid advertisements. And I suppose this is a little bit like I think it's called "Red" on YouTube, where you can subscribe, you pay a fee per month, and you get to avoid those annoying ads that pop up during your videos. So yeah, what do we think of this? We thought it was an unusual article for a news story. Firstly, it just seems kind of a confusing sort of pricing strategy. Is it a pricing strategy to introduce new price tiers based on things that customers don't like? So you increase the price to avoid something you don't want to see like ads. So obviously they've done their research. I just think it's kind of on customers and found out that they don't like seeing ads. They must not like seeing ads, but it seems counterintuitive in a way to price based on that. It sort of sidesteps the value of the Disney plus proposition. I mean, are they suggesting through that that there is very limited value in their offer compared to Netflix and are resorting to going to paying for not seeing the ads? This seems strange because there's value in that Disney plus the selection of movies. Are they suggesting that that is not enough to maintain customers? But if you backtrack a little bit on that, well, it must have been enough because that's what drove customers to the platform. And that's what customers thought, “ oh Disney plus movies are worth migrating from something like Netflix or a Stan or one of those platforms”. So I just think it's kind of an odd price structure to create and really what I'm thinking is, Is it a price strategy? Or, are they thinking about it, Is it more like a covert price increase price rise strategy? And if you're going to do that's more of a tactical sort of pricing move. And it's something that you really shouldn't integrate into your fundamental price architecture, which is that price structure. So to me, those are my thoughts what do you think? I suppose I have a couple of thoughts. Generally when we're talking about value-based pricing and charging for value, usually we're discussing giving additional value, and charging for that additional value we're giving. It's more of a carat than a stick this more seems to be a stick. This almost seems to be pay or we will self-sabotage what we're giving you. Pay or we will make this product we're providing to you worse, which seems a bit odd to me. Admittedly, they haven't said they're going to do this yet but I've seen and imagined it in a couple of different places. What would that do? Would it drag these services back down to being television? Not very different to actual regular TV, which I suppose was what drove people to stream in the first place. Theoretically, what difference does it make if you're showing adverts on whether it's a streaming service versus whether it's a pair TV system? So I think that was a bit confusing, and I'm not sure that I can see it clearly on YouTube. I would watch a fair amount of YouTube but I can see that the adverts are annoying. The people who tend to advertise on YouTube also tend to be larger corporates; banks, and building societies. These are even term issues anymore. Insurance companies stuff like that big supermarket chains. The adverts tend to be mind-numbing and they're a little bit too long. I think even television adverts some people used to enjoy them, some of them used to be entertaining. There'll be comical aspects to them. I think maybe that's decreased in recent times, potentially with the costs of TV advertising increasing. But I would argue that YouTube ads are more boring unless you also have the ability to counsel them or go straight to the video after a couple of seconds, which is a bit old. It's an old system. It's an interactive system that goes against what TV is. So I don't know if it's well thought through. I don't know if it's a good idea. The other thought about it was it sort of insinuated cost plus mechanism in Disney or whoever will implement this. Are we saying we want to make this much profit from this show over an hour's viewing per person, and we'll either get that money from the paying public or the advertisers? It may be that may not be what they're doing but it sort of suggest that and it also remains with the old saying that, “ if you're not paying for something theoretically you are the product”. If you're not paying theoretically, Disney or whoever it is will be just showing advertisements to you and the paying advertisers will see you as the product and that's how it works. So it's a weird one on it, it leads to something on the one platform, if it stays neat, it would lead to a mixed message I would say from a premium movie enjoyable system to do that. What are the questions I would ask is it clear how the implementation of adverts will make a big difference? Is it going to be adverts during the movie, which will be exceedingly annoying? Or is it going to be an advert before you watch a movie, that is less annoying? The adverts gonna be customised. So having it customised to what you like as a viewer, are they on to that? Yeah, I mean, Are they using data to customise their ads and all that sort of thing? But I do agree with you. I don't think the pricing strategy is particularly value-based. I don't know it just smacks of a very reactive price increase price hike strategy. And somebody just thought okay, if we introduced this new price to migrate customers, existing customers over to this ad-supported version, even though they were on a no ad version, then essentially get a price increase and increase our profitability there quickly. But my thought here, well.. Is that very customer focus? How do customers feel about that? Well, it'd be highly annoying if you've signed up for something with no ads and it was a good service and you're quite enjoying it to then having an inferior service. So I don't think just easily migrating on on on a spreadsheet. It looks kind of attractive, but in real life, I am assuming there's going to be some kind of churn from that kind of dissatisfaction from customers. Not necessarily to Netflix, but maybe somewhere else or who knows. But I also think, here that, as I was saying it's a reactive strategy, looking at the economics of platform-based businesses where it was very egalitarian in their pricing, meaning it was artificially low price, to begin with. And there was always that mission statement around bringing entertainment to the masses. All that broken model such high costs cinemas, and all that sort of thing, bringing the entertainment to your home, having the access to huge amounts of movies and entertainment law at a low, low cost. Now, as we see, Netflix has been challenged by new entrants to the market. This egalitarian pricing model is also being challenged and different platform businesses are competing, we're now seeing price wars, and it's unsustainable. But now we're hearing like, every other business is those slow, dumb, moving, slow-moving corporations that we often talk about that are in that commoditisation, price war trap, the same things now happening with the smart agile entrepreneurial platform businesses. So is this the end of the sort of platform revolution? And is this the beginning of massive increases in price and mass entertainment through platforms? Maybe it's the rise and fall, a very quick rise and fall of Disney plus that that we're seeing in Netflix and I suppose an indication to customers that we're not going to get those nice low prices anymore. Things are going to go up considerably. Looking at the Disney plus price increase in this particular instance, prices for no ads have gone up 37% if they're going to take this new model and new price structure into the market. So that's a quite considerable price hike for something you don't want to see. So let's see how that pans out for Disney plus. I suppose a lot of this comes down to these platforms, I'm calling them platforms not sure that the right term is streaming services, they try to segment their market. I think they've been quite a purge segmentation up to now. I think the only real segmentation that I noticed is how many users can be watching the show at one time, which to me is a bit strange. Like is this saying that four people watching Netflix on the same thing in the same house at one point in time is a bit odd as a big house or maybe people should watch movies together more? It almost suggests isolation is a good thing for these people whose company's market share and share price. So that's odd. I suppose they haven't been very good at segmentation. You know, even if you look back at the old Foxtel, Sky Television, HBO, the sort of companies satellite TV, cable TV, they were quite good at segmentation. You could select the package you wanted, sports, all that sort of stuff. I think with these platforms, to some extent, they haven't moved to that yet. Look even at Disney there are cartoons there are movies, and there are TV shows. How many people watch even a small percentage of them? So I'd argue there's room for segmentation a bit more in that category. Disney's catalogue is so big that they control production a lot better than Netflix does, which is generally redistributed for the vast majority of their product, whether it's the content. So I would argue that segmentation certainly will be increasing because these companies don't want to lose people at the lower end of the pay of eight or nine bucks. They want to keep them but push up their profitability on the higher end. I would forecast that go somewhere in the line. I say Google Play, I used to rent quite a few movies. If there was a movie I wanted to watch, and I only watched one or two a month but I pay $5, $6, or $7 to watch that movie on Google Play. And maybe our forecast that that that would be something that will come back a bit more that we'll move away from the view everything at a certain fixed price to more of you view fewer stuff and you pay a bit more per movie. But potentially it ends up with the same money in the pocket of Disney and whoever else. So I think my forecasts are more segmentation will happen. There's going to be more churned. I can't see Netflix surviving in its current form for more than a couple of years. I think the distributor and the actual production house are Paramount, Disney etc whoever the other ones are, I don't know if MGM is still a big one or not, but they will be producing more they will be growing and it'll be more direct to the viewers with segmentation taking away certain aspects that don't require potentially more pay per view movies. I guess that's my forecast. Sounds like sky and Foxtel to me. So it seems like they're going down the business Yeah, back to the future that's right Foxtel and Sky. I've been through the rocky road and I've recovered through segmentation. But it's funny like with someone like Disney plus there's an element of segmentation in Disney plus in terms of product segmentation because it's all their movies. So as Aodhan was saying Netflix is a distributor of many different types of movies and producers and directors and all of that, but Disney has only got their movies. So there's a bit of segmentation. How niche can they go with their product segmentation? So really what I think they need to work on is customer segmentation. Looking at their pricing model, this new pricing model, they haven't done it except for ads. I like ads. I don't like ads. It is a bit simplistic and dangerous for customer segmentation to go out down because it's highly emotive. It's destroying the very experience they're supposed to be producing well. What does that do that ruins the reputation? So yeah, I'd be interested to see how that goes. And the irony is quite clear. Again, another instance of the egalitarian pricing models through platforms and online comes to piece under pressure when there are more entrants and more competition. So yeah, interesting. We'll be tracking that one. Just my final point is that there could be an element of bait and switch to this old, these disruptors came in, you had a Foxtel and speaking in Australia here, you had a Foxtel subscription. Maybe in the US, it's showtime or HBO and Sky TV in Britain. You have that subscription. Some people were paying 100 bucks a month. And then you had Netflix come in and promised the world 15 bucks a month. But now those prices are ramping up. People now find themselves having four or five six subscriptions plus sports subscriptions. In Australia, you've got several Foxtel subscriptions, and cable subscriptions so many that it's almost hard to keep track of them. So in some regard, we're back at the start. We're back where we began. And is it a part of the delivery system and more of a watch on demand? Is it that different to the old-fashioned Sky TV or Foxtel subscription it is a bit back to the future? And maybe this system needs a disruption. Who knows? Maybe we should just go back to the cinema again once or twice a week. Okay, I think that's it for me today. I'm not sure if Joanna has some more. I'm just thinking, where's the value in all of this and what I'm seeing through this is faster destruction of value than I've seen in the traditional brick-and-mortar entertainment model business models. So yeah, I suppose that's my last thing so I appreciate you listening. I also don't know if Disney's catalogue was very valuable. Clearly, those movies are shown on videos and in cinemas. Reruns clearly they will show the video shops, Blockbuster Video, etc. I wonder are they making more money now? Is this improving their perception of their brand? Who knows? But I guess it's enough for the day. So yeah, have a great weekend.

There's just so much to look forward to this weekend. For starters, a race at Spa? After last year's debacle, all it takes to worry fans & Formula 1 alike is a few drops of rain. Also, will drivers approve of the changes made to make the Spa Francorchamps safer? Let's hope that some of the iconic corner haven't lost their character.

Steve interviews Andy Gaught, a property investor, mentor and coach who has been running his own property investment business, Asset Living, for the past seven years. Andy has been interested in technology from an early age, from upgrading computers in his teenage years to studying mechanical engineering at Southampton University. In 2014, after a couple of years working for TV post-production companies, he joined the 2-year Sky TV technology graduate programme. Then, he became a project manager for Sky's online TV services, Sky Go and Now TV, where he was responsible for delivering technology change projects. He is now a full-time property investor with a portfolio of single lets and HMOs across the South. He continues to invest in high-quality rental accommodation. KEY TAKEAWAYS Andy has built a portfolio and outsourced and systemized his business Asset Living for the past seven years. Outsourcing and systemizing can improve speed and efficiency and reduce errors. Once you've captured and documented a task, you are then free to improve its process. It doesn't have to be complicated to make significant differences. It can be small systems where you store or save files or a simple checklist. Systemizing and outsourcing repeated tasks frees up your creativity. When sourcing Virtual Assistants, be very clear and specific about the role you are offering. Don't rush the process of finding a VA. Make sure you get the right person the first time. Be wary of app recommendations because people have different tastes in what they like to use, and what suits them may not appeal to you. BEST MOMENTS ‘By using technology or other people, it frees up your time, it enables you to scale, it enables you to do so much more in your business.' – Andy ‘It doesn't matter how complex the stuff gets, the simplicity of just noting down “this is what I am doing today”. Because it's just the act of documenting the thing that I'm doing, the steps involved.' – Steve ‘It was simply a checklist, my first system. This is what I do once a year, so I don't forget to do anything important.' – Steve ‘People may sometimes think that systems are restrictive or that they prevent creativity but by having systems in place it, then gives you structure and you can be more creative and have more inspiration than other times.' – Andy ‘I think also, don't rush into it. You want it to be a long-term relationship, and it's such a painful process and time-consuming process to find people, you don't want to onboard them, spend a couple of weeks and realize that it's not right.' – Andy ‘Seek out help so that you can do the right thing for your business, and then you'll wonder why you didn't do it so much earlier.' - Andy GUEST RESOURCES Website: ► www.asset-living.com ► Instagram: @andy_gaught ► LinkedIn: Www.linkedin.com/in/andy-gaught/ VALUABLE RESOURCES Facebook: Facebook.com/SystemsAndOutsourcing/ Website:www.SystemizeYourSuccess.comLinkedIn: LinkedIn.com/SystemsAndOutsourcing/Instagram: @systems_and_outsourcing YouTube: YouTube.com/DrSteveDay ABOUT THE HOST Steve used to be a slave to his business, but when he moved to Sweden in 2015, he was forced to change the way he worked. He switched to running his businesses remotely, and after totally nailing this concept, he decided to spend his time helping other small business owners do the same. Steve's been investing in property since 2002, has a degree in Computing, and worked as a doctor in the NHS before quitting to focus full-time on sharing his systems and outsourcing Methodology with the world. He now lives in Sweden and runs his UK-based businesses remotely with the help of his team of Filipino and UK-based Virtual Assistants. Most business owners are overwhelmed because they don't know how to create systems or get the right help. Our systems and outsourcing Courses and coaching programme will help you automate your business and work effectively with affordable virtual assistants. That way, you will stop feeling overwhelmed and start making more money.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

After nearly 10 years of struggle with a debilitating neck and spine injury in 2012, Rich White explains that through golf he has rediscovered an absorbing sport from his childhood: that has boosted, significantly, his body and soul. Physically it has given him a way back, made him stronger, while the mental tonic has been “exceptional” for him. With three EDGA events under his belt by July, Rich says he feels like he has found a place to ‘belong' again for the first time in many years. After the very darkest of times, golf, and the golfers around him, are the medicine. Rich discovered EDGA when watching Sky TV and golfers with disability playing the new ‘G4D Tour', staged by the DP World Tour. This is his story.

Media commentator Andrew Holden joins Kathryn to talk about the departure of Breakfast host Kamahl Santamaria and the challenge it's created for new TVNZ CEO Simon Power. The recent visit by China's Foreign Minister to the Pacific highlighted tensions between the country's approach to the media and local journalists covering it. And Sky TV is back on the block, with reports two private equity groups have been encouraged to look into a buyout. Andrew Holden is a journalist for more than 30 years including five as Editor of The Press (in Christchurch) and four as Editor-in-Chief of The Age in Melbourne.
For three decades Andy has investigated many enduring truth and mystery subjects in a balanced and fair way, including conspiracy theories, freedom issues and paranormal subjects such as crop circles, UFOs and other enigmas, always finding tantalising middle-ground to evoke animated discussion. He also speaks passionately on mainstream history and folklore. Andy has appeared on many popular radio and TV shows including major UK spots on The One Show, Richard and Judy, Esther, GMTV and Sky TV's hit series Pineapple Dance Studios, and on US shows such as Caught on Camera, with appearances on The History Channel and National Geographic Channel. He also featured in the US cinema-released documentary Crop Circles: Quest For Truth. Andy's latest book, The New Heretics, published by the renowned Watkins Publishing in December 2021, is a brave and timely stand for real freedom of expression and an encouragement to establish genuine understanding of all those who question orthodoxy, whether they are agreed with or not. A better way forward – one that doesn't sanction blanket censorship – must be found. Andy's earlier book Conspiracies: The Facts – The Theories – The Evidence was also published by Watkins Publishing in 2013 and updated in 2019 and has become a crucial overview for many people. It has appeared in several global editions, including Chinese and Czech translations. Andy is author of several books exploring the unexplained, most famously The Truth Agenda: Making Sense of Unexplained Mysteries, Global Cover-Ups and Visions for a New Era. First published in 2009, it has seen several revised and updated editions since, including a US edition in 2015. The book has been a hit in both ‘fringe' and mainstream circles, and was adopted as a sociology textbook at Canada's Vancouver Island University. Meanwhile, Vital Signs: A Complete Guide to the Crop Circle Mystery, has been described by many as the definitive guide to the circle controversy and was nominated for Kindred Spirit magazine's 2002 Best Book award. His book An Introduction to Crop Circles has also been a bestseller in many British tourist outlets. Andy is also author of the celebrated book Christmas – A Short History from Solstice to Santa, published by Ivy Press as a hardback in English speaking countries in 2019, and as a Spanish edition by Alma in 2021. He is also author of four books on Sussex history. See Books for more information on Andy's writings. Andy has written for many journals and magazines, including Kindred Spirit and New Dawn, and he regularly contributes to the popular alternative journal Nexus Magazine. Andy is the founder of Vital Signs Publishing, which has produced Geoff Stray's influential book Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Ecstasy and Richard Smith's A Future World Vision, both edited by Andy. Andy - keyboardsAndy is founder of the Changing Times truth and mysteries group in East Sussex and is also co-presenter of the celebrated Glastonbury Symposium, one of the UK's longest-running alternative events. He is also an experienced keyboard player and wrote music with his co-composer David Swingland for many years, the best of which is available online. He still occasionally plays live with guitarist Phil Light after 35 years. Andy is married to the well-known psychological astrologer Helen Sewell. Andy's always balanced and perceptive views on unusual subjects have become widely respected for giving credibility to areas not generally given the coverage they truly deserve.

The merger between Orcon Group (aka Vocus NZ) and 2degrees has cleared its final hurdle after the Overseas Investment Office granted consent.The deal earlier gained Commerce Commission, GCSB and shareholder approvals.Orcon Group chief executive Mark Callander, who will lead the merged business, said: "We expect the transaction to be finalised in the coming weeks and will come together as a combined business on June 1."The combined business would be known as 2degrees, Callander said.Orcon Group's various sub-brands, including Orcon, Slingshot, Flip and 2Talk will continue to be used. The firm also owns a nationwide fibre network spanning more than 4000km, a small power retailer (Switch Utilities) and provisions service for Sky TV's Sky Broadband.The new company will combine 2degrees' mobile network with Orcon Group's more landline-focused business for what analysts see as a stronger number three competitor to Spark and Vodafone.The merged company's combined revenue will be around $1.2 billion next to Spark's $3.59b and Vodafone NZ's $1.95b for 2021.Source / Vocus NZThe merger of Orcon Group and 2degrees operations follows the transaction just approved by the OIO in which Orcon Group's Australian parent, Voyage, bought 2degrees from its US parent Trilogy.Orcon Group and 2degrees put their respective local IPO plans on hold as deal talks began late last year. Callander says a listing is now off the table.Jarden research head Arie Dekker earlier said given new corporate parent Voyage (in turn owned by investment bank Macquarie Group and Aware Super) had deep pockets, there was now no need for an IPO to raise capital.There has been speculation that the combined Orcon Group and 2degrees could, in turn, merge with Sky TV. Dekker earlier said that was unlikely. Such a deal would add risk and volatility, and regulatory headwinds.- by Chris Keall, NZ Herald

It was a sheer delight to welcome actor and musician, Max Beesley onto The Paul Weller Fan Podcast. What a talent! - piano, vibes, drums and percussion - song-writing - production - and a successful TV & movie acting career to boot!. The Paul Weller Movement kicks off... Even though he was just 18 at the time, Max played a key part in those early days of Paul's solo career with The Paul Weller Movement. He performed live as part of the band across the UK and Europe in 1990/91. Surely I'm not the only one who managed to wear out a VHS copy of the Brixton Academy show because I played it so often?!. I've posted a link to that gig below as it's so very special to me - amazing songs and performances all round. Funky as hell too!. It was recorded on 20th April 1991, a whole year before Paul's first solo album was released in Japan (18 months in the UK). The gig features Steve White on drums, Jacko Peake on saxophone and flute, Henry Thomas on bass and Max Beesley on keys and vibes. Into Tomorrow, Kosmos & playing on the Wild Wood LP Cast your mind back to 6th May 1991. The first solo single… Into Tomorrow was released - and Paul was back!. Recorded at Solid Bond in February, this absolute banger has Weller on vocals, bass, guitars and percussion. Steve White is on drums, Dr. Robert (The Blow Monkeys) on guitar (and BV) with Max on the organ. He also mentions on the podcast about recording Kosmos during that session too. Next time you are digging in to your Weller albums - check out Wild Wood to hear Max performing extra vocals with Marco Nelson on Has My Fire Really Gone Out? and playing wurlitzer on Moon on Your Pyjamas (a song that Paul wrote for his eldest son, Nat). New Music - Song for Sabrina + Omar + Weller Solo? As you'll hear during our chat, Max has been working with Paul again in recent years. We hear about a very special collaboration called Song for Sabrina on his own soon-to-be-released solo album - The Groove Spectrum, working with his old Guildhall mate (and previous podcast guest) Omar in Paul's studio for his new LP and even recording some late night grooves with Paul at Black Barn that will hopefully turn up in the future. What a Roll Call... As a session musician, Max played, toured or recorded with the likes of Incognito, Jamiroquai, Robbie Williams, Omar, Brand New Heavies, George Benson, Stevie Wonder, The JB's and Zero7. As an actor, he has starred in many hugely successful TV series - The History of Tom Jones, Bodies, Hotel Babylon, Mad Dogs, Jamestown and The Outsider. In 2022, you'll be able to see Max starring alongside Keeley Hawes in Sky TV sci-fi thriller The Midwich Cuckoos and in Guy Ritchie's new movie Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre with Hugh Grant, Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza and Josh Hartnett. Spoiler alert, you can also see Max on screen during the Paul Weller video On Sunset - with a little cameo appearance at the end on the promo film.

Ben puts all the details and threads of the current Russian invasion of Ukraine in the context of history. From World War I, American-Russian relations during World War II, the creation and expansion of NATO, all the way to beginning of Russia's invasion last week. Once you hear Ben's analysis, you'll understand that this isn't as cut and dry as the American media has made it out to be (shocker, we know).For those who haven't heard our last episode with Ben (you can listen here), Ben is a former Air Force Geospatial intelligence analyst, with a Masters in Biosecurity and Biodefense. Ben hosts a daily news show on Twitch, and is a host and contributor to The Young Turks Network.
