Every week between now and the US presidential election, three experts in US politics, history and media from the University of Auckland, all from the USA but currently happily living here in New Zealand, will take us through the systems, the history and the precedents, and try to explain why things might be happening the way they are.

Tamaki Makaurau's annual week-long festival celebrating Auckland visual arts and artists kicks off this Saturday and one of the many excellent exhibitions you can enjoy as part of it is a collection of visual poems by artist Tanu Gago - who also happens to be the co-founder of queer Pacific Arts Collective Fafswag, as well as a photographer, producer, film maker and queer activist.
Lately with Karyn Hay is a late night radio show on RNZ National, with an eye on live events, an ear for music, a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in people and their stories.
