Where’s Colm gone?

Great podcast but have really missed Colm’s pithy quips, where has the wordsmith gone? #bringcolmback

Solid analysis-safe at times-enjoyable listen

Glad to see RTÉ are putting out content on this platform that’s isn’t simply snippets from aired shows.
Enjoyed the PrimeTime debates analysis .Good breadth of contributors also.

Listening With Prejudice ,

Potential- If allowed speak freely.

Lacks the edge of some of the existing Irish political podcasts, but RTE have a tendency to play it safe, editorially.
The fake balance should be abandoned. Still it has potential and I’m subscribed.
