Erica is leaving the Taringa crew for a while, so this episode is all about her time on Taringa. We also welcome our new host - Kahurangi Maxwell nō Te Arawa.

Delving deep back into the archives, Paraone and Snowy listen to some excerpts from the 1988 Aotearoa Traditional Māori Performing Arts Festival (now called Matatini) which was held in Whāngarei.

In this week's "Iwi O Te Wiki" episode, Dr Wayne Ngata shares kōrero about Te Aitanga a Hauiti
In honour of our national day of commemoration of the NZ Land Wars, this installment of Once Upon a Taima is a brief version of the battle of Ō-Rākau in 1864. This version is based on the account of Hitiri Te Paerata, a Chief of Ngāti Raukawa & Ngāti te Kohera, who fought in the battle himself - losing many of his whānau, including his Father and Brother.
