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.

Great little podcast - would love more than 1 a week

Great podcast, perfect length at around 30 min per episode. Nice to get the inside look at Irish politics. Makes you glad we have a varied political system here.
