Proud bogan Dr Dave Snell gives an insider’s perspective on this once maligned subculture. Hear about a community united by heavy metal, black T-shirts, and mullet haircuts.

Dave discusses his research about bogan identity, community, symbolism, and everyday activities. He addresses burning questions such as:

■ How are bogans distinct in New Zealand culture?
■ Why is it valuable to study bogans?
■ Why has his research received so much media attention?
