Great podcast for a different view on Irish politics and society
Interesting podcast with some great conversations on the impact of government policies in Ireland.
Great to hear an intelligent analysis of the current situation and strategy of the government and where this will lead us to.
Fills a Hole in Irish Podcasting
Fantastic podcast covering a wide variety of ideas and it’s a testament to the 2 hosts bringing on people they would vehemently disagree with. Much needed listening!
