On this episode of Between Two Beers we’re rewinding the clock back to April of 2022 when we sat down with Jack Tame.  

Jack is journalism’s Swiss Army Knife – a guy that does it all. He’s been a Breakfast host, a 6pm news reader, he hosts one of NZ’s biggest radio shows on Newstalk ZB, is a columnist for the NZ Herald, has moderated live election debates, now hosts TVNZ’s Q and A and has seen more, and experienced more of the world – than any 36-year-old we know.  

In this episode we talk about how he was given Paul Holmes’ radio job on ZB at the age of 25 with no radio experience, *That* interview with Winston Peters where Jack was called James – about 10 times, the time he was recording live TV while fearing for his fathers life, dancing with Beyonce, covering Trump, why he left Breakfast TV, the things you don’t know about MIke Hosking and so much more.  

This was one of our favourite episodes and one we wanted to share with new listeners of the podcast. Jack is, in my opinion, the best political interviewer in the country and his razor sharp mind and quick wit made this one a lot of fun.
