A brand-new episode of Newsable, hosted by Imogen Wells and Emile Donovan, drops each weekday morning.

Newsable is brought to you by BNZ. Listen to today’s episode in the player below.

Newsable is all about what everyone’s talking about. High brow, low brow, exclusives, analysis and hot takes – it’s a fresh way to get up to speed on the day’s big stories, delivered in a uniquely Stuff way – at 6am each weekday. Here’s what you need to know about today.

Kia ora, happy Monday, and welcome to a new week! Emile and I were on same-but-different vibes over the weekend – he made a lasagne from scratch (pasta and all, and I imagine very tasty) whereas I went out to an Italian restaurant to get my pasta fix (it was 10/10, perfect, no notes).

Well, who would’ve thought over the course of a single weekend we’d end up with a warrant out for Putin’s arrest from the International Criminal Court and Trump alleging he’s going to be arrested on Tuesday (US time) in relation to the Stormy Daniels hush money scandal?! We break down both situations for you.

Can money actually buy you happiness? Some researchers in the US seem to think so, so we put the question to a prominent Kiwi psychologist, then accidently prove the theory right ourselves by buying and eating Easter eggs – all in the name of finding you the best tasting one, of course.

If you disagree with our Easter egg preferences though, flick us an email at and tell us which one is best, or you can also get in touch on Instagram.

Have a great day!
