This week on the podcast I have Wellington Podcaster’s crossover episode with Mike and Raj from Access Granted.

They share New Zealand tech, social media, startup people's stories.

There are many tech podcasts out there but most come with an American or English accent and both Mike and Raj know that New Zealand has tech stars Kiwi voices that can inspire, educate, entertain and intrigue and we have set out to record and share them all.

They have a casual chat over the guest's favorite beverage or via some technical wizardry such as Skype or a Google Hangout and talk about how they do what they do. They aren't investigative journalists, they don't focus on products or businesses (although it's hard not to talk about them if they are the passions in someone's life) and they certainly don't expect to hit the front page ... in fact, they only have one prepared question.

They know that everyone has gold in their story with each and every show bringing moments of jaw-dropping amazement before we end by asking how the guests they can be contacted which are usually via Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or even in person - they want our listeners to reach out and carry on their own conversation
