Can New Zealand solve the Ukraine Crisis?

Can New Zealand solve the Ukraine Crisis? It’s a question Phil Dobbie puts to David Campbell in this week’s Balls Radio. No, is the answer. But it is Bluff Oyster season over there.

That’s the big news to come from over the ditch, along with the fact that Kate and Wills, the royal backpackers, have chosen to make NZ the first stop on their tour down under.
Meanwhile Richard Kazimer attempts to provide more substance on the Ukraine situation. Before veering off into talks on food portions, restaurant quality and gay scout leaders.
John Dobbie joins us to talk about Angela Merkel’s pleas for Britain to stay in the EU, but stops short of asking everyone to talk German. And we hear how Ed Milliband wants to reduce the influence of unions in the Labor party, whilst still making their money.
Finally, Brian Haverty gloats about how many Oscar predictions he got right. But that’s right at the end of the podcast and you probably won’t get that far.

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.
