The Worst Idea Of All Time

Podcast in a Tree 2: 04

A beautiful day in Aotearoa finds Tim and Guy pondering some heavy questions. Can Pope Francis redeem the Catholic church? How is AI impacting primary education? What are those crystals that you get in certain kinds of honey? Thankfully, a delightful Guest on the Ground, Courtney Dawson, and an equally delightful edition of Drugs in a Tree help lift the mood. Plans are laid for a house band, Tim kills at the checkout aisle, and Guy reboots beloved season 1 segment Sandwich in a Tree with a season 2 twist (an almond croissant).

  • Podcast in a Tree 2: 05

    It’s a sentimental episode of Podcast in a Tree as Tim and Guy consider, among others, the bygone era of reversible clothing, halcyon days of New Zealand radio, and lessons in fatherhood from the Supernanny. The prolific Matt Heath, under fire for his choice in wines, shows up to reminisce about his time at Radio Hauraki, getting death threats on commercial radio and shooting Tim in the face with a t-shirt cannon. The good old days. Guy puts a spin on series segment Almond Croissant in a Tree (a cinnamon breakfast croissant).
