It’s A Drama Podcast.
This podcast was born in 2019.
Returning to New Zealand after a twelve-month backpacking trip around the world, Liz started a podcast with her teenage son, Sonny.
They talked about all things travel and living in New Zealand with teenagers.
She told others that the podcast was designed to help other parents with teenagers.
But that wasn’t entirely true.
It was her way of legitimately sticking her nose into her son’s business while she slurped lots of green tea.
When Sonny finally grew tired of spending his days recording conversations with his ma, Liz roped her long-suffering husband, Brian, onto the show.
The couple now records weekly videos on YouTube about life in New Zealand and other very cool stuff.
They like to drink wine and chew the fat. They talk about life, travel, kids, money, being British and living in New Zealand.

There are many myths & misconceptions about the UK that get on our nerves.

There’s no easy way to say it.

But that’s not to say it’s impossible and that you shouldn’t do it.
