Backstory: Chlöe Swarbrick

How well do we really know our politicians and the personal values and experiences they bring to decisions that affect us all?

Newshub Nation's new series 'Backstory' goes behind the scenes, into the lives and homes of our political leaders.

Chloe Charlotte Swarbrick is Green Party spokesperson for drug law reform, broadcasting, youth and arts - among other things. 

But she also ran a cafe, lived in Papua New Guinea, has three parents, and lives with clinical depression.
