The Inquiry Sessions

Are you interested in New Zealand's Covid-19 Inquiry developments? Do you have an opinion on what should be included in the investigation?

RCR wants to see an independent, full-scale, wide-ranging and public inquiry into NZ's Covid response.

The Inquiry Sessions are a series of interviews with a variety of people involved in or impacted by the Covid response in one way or another. From scientists and researchers to medical professionals and Commissioners, lawyers, and everyday Kiwis, The Inquiry Sessions seeks to elucidate the happenings of the past four years in an accessible and interesting way.

The Inquiry Sessions interviews are broadcast throughout RCR's range of programmes. Keep an eye on our social media to see what is coming up each day and listen live, or click on the replays below to catch up on a past session.
