Can a joke between a Man and his Dog be considered a hate crime, and what was the reason for Obamas New Zealand visit?

Graeme Hill and Paul Casserly catch up about WOMAD, which Graeme dashed off to last weekend.

In 2016 a guy in Scotland trained his Pug to perform the 'Heil Hitler' salute when he commanded it to. See the video below:

The video was uploaded on Youtube, and the man has now been convicted of a hate crime. But should he even have been arrested in the first place?

Obama was in New Zealand this week... but what was he really doing here?

They also play a song about Tonja Harding, by artist Sufjan Stevens.

The New Zealand accent of the week is Stewart Clark, listen above to hear what he said.

Lastly, how many times can you say 'right', am I right?

Listen to the full audio with Paul Casserly above.
