Taringa

One of the country’s most popular podcasts will be broadcasting live from Kaitaia next week.

Taringa, the award-winning podcast which covers all aspects of te ao Māori – in both English and te reo Māori – will be recorded and streamed live from the Kaitaia campus of Te Wānanga o Aotearoa on November 10.

The show will be livestreamed on social media and will cover te reo Rangatira me ona tikanga and how it enhances our lives, along with an in-depth look at Ngā Iwi o te Tai Tokerau.

Hosts Paraone Gloyne and Puaheiri Snowden will be joined by invited guests from across the region.

Taringa typically attracts more than 50,000 listeners each month and in 2018 received the Mātauranga - Kaupapa Māori/Education - Māori Medium award at the Ngā Tohu Reo Māori awards.

The event, which will run from 10am to 1pm, is the first time Taringa has undertaken such a road trip.

Co-host Puaheiri Snowden – Te Mahurehure, Ngāti Kuta-Patukeha - says it will be an exciting time for the Taringa team to visit Kaitaia and te Tai Tokerau.

“I’m proud to be bringing the Taringa team to Kaitaia, to give something back to my home region and share some kōrero with our people,” he says.

“We can’t wait to meet new and old friends and learn from each other about what makes te Tai Tokerau and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa such special places.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the broadcast, which promises to be both educational and entertaining. 

To be part of the Taringa audience, simply turn up at the Kaitaia campus of Te Wānanga o Aotearoa 24-26 Matthews Ave, before 10am on Tuesday, November 10. 

The broadcast will be followed by a cup of tea and nibbles and a chance to meet the Taringa team.
