This week’s Balls Radio was recorded before the razzle and dazzle of Joe Hockey’s first budget speech, but we know the upshot. Less money for people and more money for business. But Balls Radio has more important things to talk about.

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.
