It’s not everyday you get called names and apologised to within the hour on the Radio, but such is talk back radio and the heated views people have about the smacking issue.

Last Wednesday I spoke with Alison Mau and Willie Jackson as they kicked off their afternoon show on Radio Live.  I talked about why I objected to Family First’s proposed law change to decriminalise light smacking.  Here is the interview along with some other edited highlights…


A bit later in the show a caller, and Willie, decided to put me straight, culminating (much to Ali’s disgust) in Willie calling me an “egghead”…


…followed by a retraction, and an apology later in the show.  Better egghead, than egg on your face.  No hard feelings Willie.
