What is Balls Radio?

Balls Radio is Australia's only outlet for progressive talk. It's produced each week by Phil Dobbie, who believes effective public policy is neither left or right leaning - instead, it's all about looking at the impacts on people and finding ways of developing sustainable alternatives. Oh, and Balls Radio is all about having fun along the way.
