with Pio Terei and Dayna Vawdrey on RadioLIVE
Television hosts Pio Terei and Dayna Vawdrey hit the road for three days to record our “Redemption Roadtrip”.
They stopped off in five locations to chat with a handful of remarkable kiwis who are bringing a sense of redemption to the communities with which they are involved.
Listen to the whole series uninterrupted below.
Martin Bosley in Rimutaka prison
In Rimutaka prison, Dayna and Pio met up with celebrity chef Martin Bosley who trains inmates to cook giving them opportunities for legitimate work once they are released.
Allen Little at Te Takere in Levin
Driving on to the Horowhenua, the pair met up with Allen Little who sang the praises of Levin’s local library, Te Takere, which fosters greater community connection – particularly amongst the elderly.
Sam Chapman in Turangi
In Turangi, Pio and Dayna stayed with Sam Chapman who won the Kiwibank Local Hero Award in 2010 for his work in the community. Sam’s open home policy and commitment to radical grace meant they also had a notorious convicted criminal come to dinner.
Bill & Pauline McLeod in Morrinsville
Jesse & Cat O’Brien in Hamilton
Finally, Dayna and Pio dropped in on Jesse and Cat O’Brien and their family who have had 10 foster children through their home so far.
The series of interviews was aired as part of our Easter weekend programming on RadioLIVE.
