Great topics covered in depth with great guests

Nothing more than the title - a good selection of Irish and general economic issues that are covered to a good depth.

Elsewhere topics are often covered in a generalised way or just with an overview. Here, there’s specific cases and current affairs discussed that really help illustrate the points and give more of an idea of the goings-on of the Irish government and economy. I hope to hear much more!

Required listening

This is a great bit of stuff. Fair play to Niall and his guests for bringing these issues together on the podcast airwaves. The result is a bit like listening to a “greatest hits” album of the best panel discussions at economic conferences in Ireland over recent years, and in a way that is accessible to a general audience. The focus in season 1 on climate issues is timely and very helpful to those of us not working directly in that field but eager to learn more about that intersection between economics and engineering. Each episode is excellently researched and well worth the ~40 mins needed for listening on 1.5 speed.
