So they call from Christ Church on Skype on a rotating schedule of global correspondents. I shoot the breeze with the breezy anchor, Bryan Crump. This time: an ode to the late great Abdul Kalam; and movies that I liked. Listen to it here.
I did my correspondent duty for Radio New Zealand last week here and embedded below http://www.radionz.co.nz/audio/remote-player?id=201753346
