GET THE NAME RIGHT looks to set the record straight with an unauthorised Māori perspective of our place names told in an entertaining way whilst providing a platform to settle a few debates along the way.  Comedian Joe Daymond (Te Āti Awa/Fijian) and co-host Kara Rickard (Ngati Porou, Ngāti Kōata, Tainui) will travel around Aotearoa and the globe, getting to the heart of the origins of our place names and pose the question about whether it’s time for change. In this provocative new series they’ll delve deep into the history of our country and uncover the good, the bad and the ugly.

So gear up for an enlightening and challenging trip around Aotearoa and the world with hosts Joe Daymond and Kara Rickard as they – GET THE NAME RIGHT.

Made with the support of Te Māngai Pāho and NZ on Air.
