Is New Zealand behind the times?

In this podcast, Brian and I talk about a topic that so many people (people who have usually never even been here) like to say.

That is that New Zealand is behind the times. A bit backwards. Slow to catch on.

“Ohhh… it’s like the UK in the 1950’s”. There are air raid shelters and everything…


There are many misconceptions about New Zealand and one of them is that the New Zealand people live in grass huts and don’t have internet.

How rude. Everyone knows that isn’t true. Our houses are made of very nice modern-day mud.
