Open call for obsolete sounds! This project is really fascinating.

“As David Pocock looks set to oust Zed Seselja and become the first ACT senator from a minor party…”

JFC I know the ABC has had budget cuts but did anyone read this before they hit “publish”? He’s an independent, despite illegal attempts to paint him as some kind of Greens stooge.
