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.

Opportunity in New Zealand. Does it Exist?

Opportunity in New Zealand. Does it Exist?

Opportunity in New Zealand. Is there any?

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been asked this question. I have to say it is usually from people who are moving to New Zealand from the USA, people who say, ‘we’d love to move to New Zealand but we’ve heard that there aren’t many opportunities there.’

Hmmm.

Time for us to make a podcast episode and share all of the opportunities that we (my family of four) have had since moving to New Zealand twelve years ago.

Where to Live in NZ. North Island or South?

Building a House in New Zealand. Dream or Nightmare?

Building a House in New Zealand. Dream or Nightmare?

Building your own home is what most people dream of.

We were no different.

When we moved to New Zealand twelve years ago, building a house in New Zealand was right up there on our list of hopes. Along with eventually mastering the New Zealand slang words.

And after two years of living in New Zealand, we took the leap and set about building a new house on a piece of land in Taranaki, New Zealand.

In this podcast, we show you how things played out.
