A great source for news from thought New Zealand. With episodes generally on the shorter side, and covering a wide range of topics, RNZ’s Checkpoint is a great way to check in on what’s been going on throughout the country, and a great mix-in to add with the rest of your podcast feed.

John Campbell has added a great tone to what was already a fantastic format. I've not come across drive time news of this quality from anywhere else on the planet, and I have had a fairly good listen around.
