David Farrier used to be famous for interviewing Colin Craig in a sauna. Now he’s a big star with a show on Netflix called Dark Tourist. I decided to do some dark tourism of my own, into Farrier’s past. David Farrier. You’re the host of a new show, Dark Tourist. Yes, yeah it’s on Netflix. What is dark tourism? Dark tourism is this phemonemon where people are attracted to holidaying in places associated with death and disaster, so instead of going to a nice beach, they’ll go to somewhere where something horrible’s happen– –hmmmmmmmm… Yeah so I have a question. Yeah? Yeah. Can you confirm that we have been friends since meeting at AUT university? Yeah absolutely, I mean this interview is a strange thing for me to do because I feel like I know you relatively well, Can you remember what you were doing on November 5, 2011? Yeah a lot happens in life and that’s a long time ago. See I can remember exactly what I was doing on November 5, 2011. I was actually right here. At my wedding reception. Yes. I know where you’re going with this because I didn’t go to your wedding. Do you remember what you were doing that afternoon instead of going to my– No, I do. I’d just gotten a job on the 6pm news. What was the story that you did? I believe it was to interview Paul Henry. Okay, well. Shall we watch that story? Should we see whether that was was worth it? Should we watch that together? Ah, it’s not that. I mean that’s what I came to talk to you about, is… ‘Paul Henry knows what it’s like at the centre of a racism controversy, as David Farrier exclusively reports.’ How much are you getting paid for this? It’s funny you should ask the question in that way, because that is exactly how I would ask that question. Watching that, do you feel pretty proud of your work? Yeah. I mean I don’t think it’s that– I don’t think that it’s that much of a big deal. If you’re gonna start stacking things up, you have wronged me in multiple ways over the years. Oh, just reminding you that I’m asking the questions. Okay well, go. Do a question. Is it about the show? That I made. With Netflix. Ah, yup. Why are you like this? What do you mean? Like this. What do you mean? Asking you questions about your show? No… Dark Tourist? No you’re getting stuck– –out on Netflix!? Stuck in about something that happened a very long time ago where I missed about five minutes of your wedding reception. And you’re kinda making out you’re like this leftie, liberal, oh woe is me kind of oh, you didn’t come to my wedding… you know? I know I– –EVERYTHING THAT YOU’RE SAYING IS A MASSIVE DISTORTION, THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF PERSON THAT DOESN’T GO TO THEIR FRIEND’S WEDDING BECAUSE THEY’RE INTERVIEWING PAUL HENRY. PAUL HENRY!!! I mean there’s– –I mean yeah, well, so. Dark Tourist. Out now on Netflix. It turns out David Farrier is comfortable talking about other people’s darkness, but doesn’t like being confronted with his own. I’m glad I didn’t come to your whole bloody wedding to be honest.
