Nutters Club

The Nutters Club is a world first, online and offline media phenomenon that has changed and saved lives. It has spawned a very large, strong and supportive Facebook community and morphed into a popular television series on Maori Television. Over 500,000 people view the Nutters Club Facebook page every week.

It’s stated mission is "to forever change the way people, feel, think, talk and behave in relation to their mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, cultural and sexual well being; and in doing so encourage us all to take ownership of our own health and well being.” In plain English it’s a show about “Nutters helping other Nutters live at peace with themselves and others, so that we can all lead meaningful lives.”

The Nutters Club deals with all the tough stuff that many in society would prefer to keep in the closet. Topics like mental health issues, drug/alcohol addictions and the socially taboo. The show is hosted by Mike King. He’s the “head nut”. 

Helping Mike out is the Club’s resident Psychotherapist with over 15 years experience - Kyle MacDonald - who also writes a weekly “Ask the Therapist” column for the New Zealand Herald (link:

His lightning quick wit and on air candour keep listeners on their toes.
