From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:37 pm on 15 February 2019

Auckland's Fringe Festival gets started next week and one of the many weird wacky shows on display is Amy Mansfield's I Didn't Invite You Here to Lecture Me.

Mansfield took seven years' worth of throwaway lines and asides from her lecturers at the University of Auckland, and transmogrified them into a 50-minute "degree", to be delivered to the audience.

She joins us to talk about the show, what people can expect, and why hoarding is SOMETIMES a good idea...
