Sam Mahon is a respected New Zealand author, sculptor and freshwater activist. In this podcast we discuss Sam’s talents in both writing and sculpting, and why he dedicates most of time towards political activism such as his current sculpture of environment minister Nick Smith taking a metaphoric crap in our glass of drinking water. We hope you enjoy this conversation, and we’d love to hear your feedback!
