Porn, Haradine, Heartbleed and Fishing for Paykel

This week Balls Radio salutes the life of Senator Haradine, the Tasmanian independent who campaigned fiercely against porn and other things that involved having a good time. We also look to Canada, where porn is more acceptable so long as it meets the 35% local content quota. We ask what are the ingredients for a good Canadian porn movie?

From New Zealand David Campbell reports on the missing Fisher and Paykel fridges – lost to the oceans they’ve been easier to spot than the Malaysian Airline jet. 
Richard Kazimer talks about changes to campaign fund ruling in the US – basically, wealthy individuals can donate as much as they like to their chosen party, so long as they don’t ask for favours in return. That would never happen, surely? Also, that Heartbleed loophole in online secure certificates – apparently, the US spy agency knew about it two years ago, but forgot to tell anyone.
Finally Brian Haverty talks about Resurrection, the Channel 7 TV series that’s actually a remake of a far superior French show. He says it’s worth watching and warns you not to be dismissive of shows with subtitles. Perhaps we could do that – the first radio show with subtitles.

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.
