The Anxiety Hour is a program where we meet and profile interesting people, and explore parts of their lives that aren’t always seen. In short we’re asking, what are you afraid of? But more broadly, we're aiming to break out of the usual mental health conversations to highlight our shared experiences and feelings. Now, at this point it sounds kind of heavy, but trust us mental health isn’t always sad. Often it’s weird, funny, frustrating and even uplifting.

A new Kiwi start-up wants to revolutionise the way we buy groceries. The start-up, Supie, cuts out the middle man when it comes to grocery shopping so that there isn't the waste that supermarkets experience. Users would buy directly from the supplier - meaning vegetables will still be in the ground and bread would still be in the oven when you orde…
 
A local consultancy business helping kids get into elite overseas universities does not believe an ongoing scandal will affect his business. A new Netflix documentary looks into the US College Admissions Scandal – the one that saw actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin actually sent to jail. The documentary tells the story of Rick Singer, who…
 
The fashion world looks to be entering into the early stages of a new denim cycle. The boss of Levi's Jeans says they're noticing more consumers opting for loose-fitting denim over the tighter fit.

Shops, gyms, pubs and beauty salons in England have welcomed back customers after three months of lockdown, delivering a crucial boost to retail and hospitality businesses that have been forced to close repeatedly during the pandemic. Shoppers braved unseasonably cold temperatures as they lined up outside stores in cities on Monday after restrictio…
 
A former Attorney-General says it's appalling Kiwis aren't doing their civic duty. Fewer than one-in-five New Zealanders turn up for jury service. One main problem was the $80-dollars a day compensation has little pull. Former National cabinet minister Chris Finlayson told Mike Hosking he thinks there's a lot of people happy to take from the countr…
 
Business trips are expected to stay grounded, as baby steps are taken to get travelling again. CNN Business correspondent Richard Quest says it's fair to say business travel won't get back to where it was before Covid-19, but it's hard to say to what extent. However, he told Mike Hosking travel between company offices will likely take the biggest h…
 
It’s a funny old thing to watch at the moment. It's starting to dawn on the greenies that the 'magic' of the electric car might not be as magical as they thought. Like so many who hop on bandwagons, they don’t do the homework. They essentially pedal their ideology based on clap-trap. For all the buzz around EVs, two stark things have been at play. …
 
University of Hull's new marking criteria is being labelled as ridiculous. The English university has instructed its lecturers to overlook spelling, punctuation and grammar errors, so it doesn't appear elitist.

People across Britain flocked to shed shaggy locks and browse for clothes, books and other “non-essential” items as shops, gyms, hairdressers, restaurant patios and beer gardens reopened Monday after months of lockdown. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged people to “behave responsibly” as the country that has had Europe's deadliest coronavir…
 
The government is lucky, as it turns out, that Covid is still front-and-centre because if it wasn’t - and it won't always be - a great deal more time would be currently spent on the economy. Kiwibank tell us the sugar-rush of spending is over. That mad dash we made post-lockdown last year to buy anything and everything is now finished. The househol…
 
I'd love to be able to start the week on the Warriors, but to do that they have to win and when you lose to a useless side there isn't a lot you can say. So maybe next Monday, eh. Anyway - red flag time. The socialist agenda of this government was on display Friday with the news that they had lent Air New Zealand another $600 million. This is on to…
 
A bold move from the US government is being called a 'war on tax havens'. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is calling for minimum global corporate tax of 21 percent across the OECD. The change would provide big businesses with a single tax system, and major players like the world's richest man, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, is on board. Business advocate Phi…
 
People around the world are remembering the man who was Prince Philip. The Royal family is rallying around the Queen as she deals with the loss of her husband of 73 years. Former New Zealand High Commissioner to the UK Lockwood Smith told Mike Hosking he will always think of the Duke of Edinburgh as a wise man. "What I loved about Prince Philip, wh…

Judith Collins says there's no substance to the rumours of a leadership coup within the National Party.

However, Collins told Mike Hosking it as just media talk. "I'm not in troub…
 
The Immigration Minister has defended the lack of migrant workers, saying the Government's doing everything it can. Fruit growers claim there are hundreds of millions of dollars worth of produce going to waste, and they can't last another year without more seasonal workers. The Apple and Pear industry is predicting a loss of more than $600 million …
 
For the second match in succession Super Rugby Aotearoa needed golden point extra time to find a victor. The Crusaders, thanks to David Havili's clutch drop goal, prevailed over the Hurricanes in Wellington on Sunday afternoon but the win came at a cost, and will do little to damper the sense Scott Robertson's men have quickly come back to the pack…
 
The Netflix documentary Seaspiracy, which highlights the problems of overfishing the world's oceans, has been a hot topic of conversation this week.

The country's largest grocery retailer is refuting the idea its advertised specials are misleading. A Consumer survey found seven out of ten people don't trust the specials, and question whether they're genuine bargains. The survey tracked online prices and found some items were discounted more often that not, so the so-called 'special' price is re…
 
At the end of each week, Mike Hosking takes you through the big ticket items and lets you know what he makes of it all. The Trans-Tasman Bubble. 8/10. "Too late, too long, and too delayed. But we got there at last, and it's good for a lot of reasons." Air New Zealand. 8/10. "Record day for Trans-Tasman sales. It proves we aren't all afraid of life …
 
President Joe Biden put on a modest White House ceremony Thursday to announce a half-dozen executive actions to combat what he called an “epidemic and an international embarrassment” of gun violence in America.

A lawyer says the most important thing about the Government's ban on flights from India, is the justification for it.

Chen Palmer managing partner Mai Chen told Mike Hosking the Covid-19 Public Health Re…

Here is how we end up in a mess. This is a case study. We end the week understanding that the vaccine roll out is not going to plan, but then part of the lesson is that it was never going to. The leaked paper showed us we are hundreds of thousands of jabs short of where we should have been. We also now know there are 300,000 doses waiting to be use…
 
Taxpayer spending on housing support is a big ticket that's only going to get even bigger in the years ahead. The Government is now spending a billion dollars on housing every three months. The figure includes rent subsidies, grants and emergency housing. Bagrie Economics founder Cameron Bagrie told Mike Hosking at the current rate, the figure is l…
 
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is not ruling out extending the unprecedented Indian travel suspension to other high-risk countries in order to keep New Zealand Covid-free.

One of New Zealand's early reality TV hits is making a comeback - with some globally recognised talent fronting it.

Since then, she's released two further albums - and now s…

Education NZ Chief Executive Grant McPherson told Mike Hosking that it's expected to take ten years to fix our international education sector, which has been severely damaged from Covid. “For us to rebuild the sector, you’re looking at multiple years to fill the pipeline again,” said McPherson. A contributing factor to this is the options that inte…
 
Turns out we need to offer an apology to Barry Soper. Barry ruined my day yesterday. There I was, sitting down to a small plate of my favourite artichoke dip, some French stick, and an espresso when his voice penetrates the kitchen conversation with the mention of my name. He was addressing the interview with the Prime Minister, but also comments I…

This particula…
 
Insulation requirements need to be up to speed with the rest of the world as New Zealand transitions into winter, particularly with houses.

Resident Builder Peter Wolfkamp said to Mike H…
 
National has got a Ministry of Health report from January stating that 390,000 vaccines should have been administered by now. Instead, it is well below the expected target with barely 90,000 administered. NZ College of General Practitioners medical director Bryan Betty spoke to Mike Hosking about the slow rollout. “It was always going to be a slow …
 
The issue of reopening New Zealand to the rest of the world with the Covid vaccine programme underway is a major concern. University of Otago professor and epidemiologist Sir David Skegg said there is a plan to reintegrate New Zealand back into the international community. “We obviously need to end up as part of the world community. So at some stag…
 
A trans-Tasman travel bubble will open with Australia in less than two weeks. Quarantine-free flights will resume from April 19 -- after receiving the green light yesterday from Cabinet.

More than half of the three million COVID-19 vaccine doses that Australia has manufactured remain in cold storage and cannot be rolled out yet because they are undergoing further batch testing in Europe by the drug company AstraZeneca. News.com.au has confirmed that despite CSL producing more than 3 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine here in Aus…
 
President Joe Biden announced Tuesday that he's bumping up his deadline by two weeks for states to make all adults in the U.S. eligible for coronavirus vaccines. But even as he expressed optimism about the pace of vaccinations, he warned Americans that the nation is not yet out of the woods when it comes to the pandemic. “Let me be deadly earnest w…
 
There is a simple advantage of a vaccine passport, and this is why our tragically slow roll out of the vaccine is little short of a scandal. You can't have a passport without a vaccine, we don’t have vaccine, we don't know when, short of the vaguest half yearly sort of guess, when we will have a vaccine. The droplets of vaccine we have had hasn’t b…
 
Airlines are preparing to radically ramp up trans-Tasman travel - ahead of the opening of the trans-Tasman bubble. Quarantine-free travel will begin on Monday, April 19th. Air New Zealand has been "run off our feet" as thousands of Kiwis snap up Australian airfares with the launch of the trans-Tasman travel bubble on April 19. The number of flights…
 
The Prime Minister says about a thousand spaces in MIQ will be freed up by the trans-Tasman travel bubble.
