Part 1 of a special collaboration episode with the Happy Hour History Podcast about a very interesting and not well known part of New Zealand history: Robert 'Bob' Semple. This is all about his early life, his involvement in politics and the early labour movement in Aotearoa. It's an absolute cracker! Warning: language that some may deem offensive used throughout.

What is History of Aotearoa New Zealand Podcast?
The History of Aotearoa New Zealand Podcast is a chronological and narrative telling of the history of New Zealand. Each episode we tell the story of our island nation in an interesting and informative way! Join us to learn more about what made Aotearoa what is today from the first settlement by Tangata Whenua, The Treaty of Waitangi, The Land Wars, The King Movement, WWII and a whole host of other topics! I recommend listening in order as that will give you a fuller and deeper understanding of what we talk about in later episodes. So crack into Episode 0 and I hope to see you soon!
