AmeriNZ #22 - Commonwealth

Episode 22 is now available, and it's free no matter where you get it from. You can listen to it or download it through the player at the bottom of the post here, or subscribe for free through iTunes here (you must have the free iTunes player installed). You can also listen to it for free through the player on my MySpace page.
I begin today with a few short comments on Episode 21. Then, it’s on to an explanation of the Commonwealth of Nations, which New Zealand is part of. From there, it’s a discussion of the Victoria Cross for New Zealand, the country’s highest military decoration, which is being awarded for the first time since World War 2. I play a clip of DjDavidJ from Archerr’s show, then I make a couple comments about Canada, New Zealand and Australia—and where I fit into all that. Finally, a rant about Bush commuting Scooter Libby’s sentence. To close the show, “Death of Democracy” by 37Hz, from the Podsafe Music Network.

Ok, I haven't even heard the show yet - but I wanted to beat Archer to being the first comment on an episode. :-)

Damn! Daniel beat me to it!

Glad you enjoyed the chardonnay. I'll have to look for it here in the states. I know it's around I'm sure.

I couldn't agree with you more about Bush and the Libby thing.

Loved that song at the end...I hadn't heard that before.

Daniel: Congratulations! Because of my time zone, I often get to be the first to comment—especially on Archerr's show, actually.

Archerr: Yeah, now I want to get another bottle--just for scientific purposes, of course—to give it further evaluation.

To me, the saddest thing about Bush's actions over Libby is that it's only one thing on a long, long list of misdeeds done by this administration. And it's far from the worst thing he's done.

Bush has made me remember that song a lot of times.
