New Zealand went into methamphetamine hysteria this week.

Siouxsie Wiles joins Graeme Hill to talk the week of hoaxes, woo and scams exposed for what they aren’t.

The two discuss a Government report which has uncovered changes to levels of methamphetamine accepted in contaminated housing has blown up.

Siouxsie asks why it has taken a change of Government and a request by the housing minister for evidence, for the con to be uncovered.

Plus, the legitimacy of homeopathy is explored including the hype around kombucha tea. There are supposedly many health benefits, but what are the risks?

Siouxsie also talks about her web series with her daughter.
