Returning

I gave up on this podcast during Covid due to Eamon’s accommodation of hardline Covid restrictions advocates such as Tomas Ryan, not even a disease expert himself. I’ve loved Eamon as a journalist since the early 90s and have read his book but the Covid fatalism was just too much and I couldn’t listen to Ryan anymore. I see he hasn’t been on since 30th May and there’s been just two Covid shows since then so I guess I’m back on board.

Sweden

Listened to this, the problem with Arab gangs and the violence , shootings and bombings occurring in Sweden in recent years attributed to this was unmentioned…and what has fuelled the votes for the far right..

Just found this pod. Why hadn’t I heard of it before? When many of my old favourite podcasts seem to have lost their way, this is excellent replacement.
