Prime Minister Abbott has warned us that the threat of terrorism is getting worse. Fortunately he’s just the man to do something about it. That’s a relief. Thank goodness his party didn’t get rid of him in the leadership challenge.

Tony Abbott clearly thinks focusing on Labor’s debt is safe ground as he tries to regain the confidence of his party, but Professor Steve Keen joins us to explain why government debt isn’t such a big issue. One of many stories in this special, extra long, Balls Radio, now with fancy new jingles.

Balls Radio has spotted a new theme song for the Liberal party. For the backbenchers who lost the spill vote, “It’s Only Just Begun”, and for a party led by Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop “working together day by day, together”. It’s a daggy song, but it might just work.

There’s a rumour being put about by some young children that Santa Claus doesn’t exist. Next they’ll be denying the existence of God. Thank goodness Balls Radio is here to put them right.

Let`s socialise

What is Balls Radio?

Balls Radio is like talk radio, but for thinking people. Now a short daily occurrence, Phil Dobbie offers his opinions on what's happening, in the UK and overseas: politics, social policy, economics, science, religion. Yes, it's another, slightly overweight middle-aged white man telling the world how it should be. But there's nothing alt-right about Balls Radio. And we try and have fun along the way.
