  • Great Show But Concerning Errors

    I enjoy this show very much but the latest episode on The Voice in Australia has concerning errors. They got the Prime Minister’s name wrong, six states voted No, not four and the proper name of Senator Price is Jacinta Nampijinpa Price. Please pay more attention to research so this podcast continues to be enjoyable.
