    Running your fastest 5km isn’t all about running more. As Sonia explains in today’s episode, it has just as much to do with what you do when you’re not running. Without proper recovery methods nobody gets faster.

    Donald Trump Found Guilty! - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone

    Donald Trump Found Guilty! - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone

    Donald Trump has indeed been found guilty of all 34 counts of falsifying business records in a criminal hush-money scheme to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. Were you surprised? Marion McKeone explains the implications of the verdict to me. We examine how we got to this day, how it might impact swing voters, will Eric Trump ever get a hug, how likely are we to see this thing overturned or DJT on the side of a freeway picking up cans with a stick. In a week when pressure mounted on beleaguered President Biden to change his approach with Israel, isn’t all this just a distraction from what is really important in the world right now?

    Come over to www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad to hear the rest of the episode including bizarre world of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito & there’s big news on our first ever LIVE episode!

These simple techniques could help you improve your form, avoid injury and get strong fast. Vinny Mulvey goes a bit deeper over on Patreon in the extended cut of the podcast.

    The Portal To Biden's Weakness & Michael Cohen's Revenge - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone

    While ”The Portal” in Dublin revealed something more than people willing to drop their pants for a cheap laugh, Donald Trump’s hush money trial is revealing a lot more than who paid for what.

Tom Vaughan Lawlor episode

I am new to the podcast and also something of a podcast addict. This is terrific. Insightful interviewing and great guests. Highly recommended.

Started off really well, then Trump happened…

As per the heading it started off as a great podcast, then he went off on an American politics tangent around 2016/2017). It’s lost it’s way and is now just another political podcast obsessed with America. The Sonia days are a breath of fresh air. But the interviews like Kimmage, Moran, Tiernan are so good it’s a shame it’s lost it’s way.

A Rich Comic Life ,
