    Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”Your Questions For Sonia Answered”

    This week we open the mailbag. It’s been bulging for months with a backlog of your questions for Sonia on training, nutrition, injuries and more. Not only does Jarlath get the chance to ask all your questions for the GOAT but he also gets to dip into the raft of questions he has never had the chance to ask. In classic no-nonsense Sonia style, we get the whole truth on each subject and an account of the worst questions she’s ever been asked. There’s even time in the second half for Jarlath to ask if he is difficult to coach. The answer might surprise you. There’s a review of our club event from last weekend and the announcement of an in person event this Sunday in Dublin.

    Brian O‘Donovan: Four Years In The Cauldron

    Brian O‘Donovan: Four Years In The Cauldron

    When Brian O’Donovan was offered the plum role of RTÉ News' Washington Correspondent he knew he was taking his family on an adventure. After 2 years of fake news, scandals and turmoil, he had no clue he had only seen the beginnings of the craziness that would follow. With the clarity that Brian’s on site reports are known for, he speaks about what it was like reporting from the front lines of a White House implosion. Brian speaks about adapting to family life in America, why the US media is missing Donald Trump and the challenges of being on duty 24/7 while reporting on the biggest news stories in the world.
     
    Later on Jarlath gets an insight into his early media days in Cork's Red FM, the 10 years he spent at TV3, his experiences of living in America when the Black Lives Matter movement began and much more. Very few have been entrusted with the responsibility of reporting directly from such troubling times. This conversation with Brian O’Donovan gives a rare insight into the impact this kind of work has on a person and their family.

    Joe Rogan vs Dr. Gupta (The Rise And Rise Of US Vaccine Scepticism) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

    Joe Rogan vs Dr. Gupta (The Rise And Rise Of US Vaccine Scepticism) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

    Does the media have a role to play in the rise of vaccine scepticism in America? Marion McKeone examines the impact of Joe Rogan and other alternative news sources in a week when his interview with CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta drew massive attention. Who is Joe Rogan and why do so many people look up to him? Marion looks at his origins and the choir he appears to preach to. What does the attempt by Texas to prevent vaccine mandates mean and will it produce any change in national policy? Will NBA superstars and other athletes who refuse the vaccine be viewed as martyrs for their cause or spoiled brats unwilling to do everything necessary to win. As usual Marion explains it all.

    Catherine Corless And The Long Road To Justice For The Victims Of The Tuam Mother And Baby Home

    Catherine Corless And The Long Road To Justice For The Victims Of The Tuam Mother And Baby Home

    Few can have failed to see the Tuam Mother And Baby home scandal as it unfolded across the world’s media. It remains one of the most shocking cases in the history of the state. Today Jarlath meets the fearless woman who uncovered this secret and continues to fight to this day for justice for all the victims of the home. Catherine Corless is not a journalist or a trained investigator. As she explains here for the first time, she is a woman who grew up in a very unusual and at times difficult home. A woman who took a night course in local history. A woman who discovered an awful truth that many to this day are unwilling to accept. 


    Catherine brings us from that night course classroom to the day the story hit the papers and the truly shocking meeting she had with the religious order responsible for the Tuam home. This is the story of a person who refused to bow down to bullies. Her book, Belonging is out now and all royalties will go to the Tír Na Nóg Orphanage.

    Can Mark Zuckerberg Change? (Texas Buys Time & William Shatner Is Going To Space Jim, But Not As We Know It) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

    Can Mark Zuckerberg Change? (Texas Buys Time & William Shatner Is Going To Space Jim, But Not As We Know It) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

    Marion sifts through the ashes of another ridiculous week in American politics and current affairs. She starts with her bizarre visit to the NRA’s AGM in Texas. The focus then turns to Facebook’s hearings where whistleblower Frances Haugen landed a deep blow to the social media giant. Jarlath asks Marion if the slippery Mark Zuckerberg can talk his way out of this one. We take a look back at his previous performances in front of old men with no tech knowledge. In a wide ranging discussion Marion leads us through the latest in the Texas abortion law challenges, William Shatner’s trip to space, Britney’s new lease on life and the most shocking killing of a pharmacist distributing vaccines. Like a knife through butter Marion cuts to the heart of this week’s stories and more.
