Interesting subjects and engaging

Unrecognised states was a module I studied a few years ago in college and was great to immerse in the topic and hear about Abkhazia and Nagorno Karabakh again! Engaging discussion with Donnacha in the context of the Irish story, context and current politics with real world experience.

Well worth a listen

Dan does a top job of interviewing a host of different characters he’s met along the way.

He’s at ease chatting with funny people or experts alike.

I’ve heard there’s a few sports stars and musicians lined up so looking forward to those conversations too.

Informative & Funny
