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.

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.
