Political battle lines have been drawn, former MP Tau Henare and political commentator Shane Te Pou have dug in for the campaign. 

They are joined by journalist Mihingaarangi Forbes who acts as mediator as they pick apart policy, decipher political debate and provide a Māori lens on political parties, politicians and their policies.  

The programme could be heard every Sunday afternoon on RNZ National and as a podcast every week leading up to the 2020 election.
