Australia’s Treasurer Joe Hockey wins new friends in Western Australia. Russell Crowe says something sensible. And Woolworths backs down after having created an Anzac Day promotional campaign that wasn’t sensible at all. On Facebook. Serious.
In this podcast, there’s talk of Anzac Day, budgets, boat races, and cheetahs. But nothing about Florida at all.
