Max Harris, Bernard Hickey, Emma Espiner and Todd Muller MP.

Who do we want to be as people and as a nation, what are the hurdles we have to overcome to achieve a better, fairer country and how do we clear them – and is there even only one kind of New Zealand and one kind of New Zealander? Our panellists – financial journalist Bernard Hickey, medical student and writer Emma Espiner (Ngāti Tukorehe, Ngāti Porou) and Bay of Plenty National MP Todd Muller – talk to Max Harris (author of The New Zealand Project) about the shape of the future.
