Podcast: Two Cents' Worth

Double-cab ute nation vs carbon zero

In Newsroom's first business podcast, we examine the rise of the double-cab ute and what it means for climate change and tax policy.

We preview this week's report on bank behaviour and we look at what on earth is going on in the wholesale electricity market, which is threatening to put smaller retailers out of business.

Two Cents' Worth has been launched by Newsroom in a co-production with RNZ. It is the country's first weekly business podcast and will be broadcast just after the Midday news on Sundays on RNZ National, be available on both RNZ and Newsroom's websites - and we plan to make it available on iTunes from later today.

Each week we will examine one issue in depth and then convene a panel discussion from Newsroom business editor Nikki Mandow, Interest.co.nz political and economics writer Jenée Tibshraeny, RNZ business editor Giles Beckford and Newsroom Pro managing editor Bernard Hickey.

Two Cents' Worth - the business week and the business outlook. Available from Friday afternoons.
