Edmund Barton, Australia's first Prime Minister.

To celebrate Australia Day I bring you a podcast about Edmund Barton, Australia's first Prime Minister. A bit of a long episode, which took me a long time to record because I had trouble with the speaking of the English. Jason from History Podcast presents an episode on the origins of Australia Day. Pretty interesting although the pronunciations made me cringe. Listen to this in conjunction with the two episodes from Triple J's Hack about the controversy over Australian flags at the Big Day Out, first one, second one.
