    Whale Of A Problem

    Australians have been protesting, quite rightly, about the obscene slaughter of whales in the Antarctic by the Japanese. Some of us have been protesting for 25 years.

But how can we protest about them and yet right here at home protected dugongs and sea turtles are being slaughtered in the name of tradition and culture?

    Fifty Years On

    A new year in a new decade. New resolutions. New issues. New contract at 3AW. But the same old Hinch. And it was a special day for me today. Monday, January 11th 2010. Because, on another Monday, January 11th I started a new job. My first job. Monday, January 11th 1960. On a small newspaper called the Taranaki Herald – circulation 11,000 – in the town of New Plymouth, New Zealand. Covered a bit of ground since then.
