Current Events, Just musing

Interview with New Zealand radio host, Tim Fookes


It was my absolute pleasure to welcome Tim Fookes to my show. As a fellow talk show host, it’s always fun to talk shop. However, the nice twist comes from the fact he is from New Zealand and so it was interesting to get his take on American politics and how their media tends to skew information as badly as major American media sources. It was a lot of fun to discuss the current state of social media, the rush to be first and facts be damned and even a few side discussions into sports. I also had a chance to ask how he got into radio and how he approaches his show-prep each day. Hint, you have to read a lot and not just 140 character tweets or cute memes, playing nicely into one of our recent posts by writer @ericwojo, which you can read here.
