Tim Wilson and Trish Sherson join Mike Yardley to wrap the week that was.

The elimination strategy has officially been abandoned as Auckland began its phased move out of lockdown, with debates about using toilets at a gathering and how many can join up for a picnic.

The vaccine debate has hotted up, with Professor of epidemiology at Auckland University Rod Jackson comparing Delta to a flamethrower in a forest with anti-vaxxers representing gumtrees and vaccinated representing pine trees.

The three discuss the much-anticipated release of the latest James Bond film No Time Die, with Daniel Craig's final outing as the titular character being delayed three times from its original release date in April 2020.

Finally, the three discuss Netflix's latest hit Squid Game, which could become the streaming service's most-watched show ever.
