Mediawatch, community news, politics and The Mud
The Mud featured on Mediawatch - the National Radio programme that looks critically at the New Zealand media - television, radio, newspapers and magazines as well as the 'new' electronic media.
In a section asking 'Would more local broadcasting boost local politics?' host Colin Peacock interviewed The Mud's Mike Smith - starts at 35 minutes in but there is also a fascinating analysis from media commentator Tom Fruen beforehand.
Thanks to Radio New Zealand for the opportunity to talk about our project - it's fun.
