The Anzac Day centenary is just three days away, and Australians are getting the irrits. Tony Abbott demonstrates his usual empathy. And Nicholas Fryer delivers a heartfelt ode to Scott Morrison.
In this podcast, there’s talk of storms, ships, terrorism and theology. And yes, Florida gets a look-in.
