Here at RNZ, we love landlines.

They're solid. We get a clear line usually and there's no faffing about with speakerphones, bluetooth, reception problems and more.

And so when we saw Barbara Keys' story on The Conversation website saluting the social and historical benefits of the landline phone we thought we'd call her up.

Barbara Keys is an associate professor of US and International History at the University of Melbourne.
