Talking Turkey and the G Word

This week’s Balls Radio looks at Australia’s focus on Gallipoli, and highlights other WWI battles where ANZAC forces had greater success. 

And we look at the conflict Joe Hockey must be facing over Turkey’s other G word, genocide.

Yes, after a break of a few weeks, Balls Radio is back. In this edition, we step onto sensitive ground as a pom dares to question the merits of commemorating Gallipoli. After all, the ANZACs played a far more important part in other battles of WWI. Why commemorate defeat? Plus much more about what's happening in the world.

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.
