In 2012, Radio New Zealand Arts on Sunday hosted a discussion of National Flash Fiction Day and flash fiction in general to help launch the inaugural event. You can hear the radio interview and hear some flash fiction on the Radio NZ website.

And this was one of Radio NZ’s most popular podcasts in 2012 — so thanks to listeners and fans!
