Balls Radio: Not For Whimps

Balls has never been bigger. It must be the hot weather.
It’s Phil Dobbie’s weekly podcast that dissects the week’s news and spits it out only partially digested. With correspondents to around the globe we have everything covered.

We’ll look at comments from the Australian Prime Minister, who says his immigration minister is doing a good job, despite the recent riots at the Manus Island detetention centre. Abbott declares there’s no room for whimps in the immigration portfolio. No room for Joe Hockey then, who made an impassioned speech in 2012 about how we should never send unaccompanied children into detention or outsource these centres to foreign nationals. Too late now Joe.
John Dobbie looks at the end of the world, as predicted by the Vikings and how the trial of Rebekah Brooks seems to be focusing on her sex life in true News of the World style.
Richard Kazimer talks about the rebuilding of Detroit, Obama’s meeting with the Dalai Llama and plans to split California into six separate states. Don’t hold your breath.
Kiwi contributor David Campbell explains why and how New Zealand still won’t American warships into their ports and why the ANZAS treaty is likely to exclude his countrymen for some time to come.
And Brian Haverty looks ahead to the Oscars with the nominations, how you can help pick them, and the movies that should never have made the list.
Plus some talk on Charlotte Dawson, Piers Morgan and a conspiracy involving Facebook and What’s App. All crammed in to an hour of your life you’ll never get back.

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.
