editor’s letter

Our wonderful editor, Michele Crawshaw, is away with her husband Chris on a great American road trip, so it’s my turn for a spin in the ed’s chair. Like most Aucklanders, my morning commute is long and I fill my bus ride by listening to podcasts. Yes, this means I am like that annoying person in your friend group who is always saying: “I heard this great quote on a podcast.” But bear with me, because I did indeed hear this great quote on a podcast! “Perfection is the enemy of progress,” said Winston Churchill.
