The aim of this weekly podcast is to make economics easy, uncomplicated and accessible. With the world at a political, technological and financial tipping point, economics has never been so important to all of us and yet, it’s made inaccessible and complicated by so many.

I’ve always thought what is complicated is rarely important and what is important is rarely complicated.


That will be our motto.


Every week we are going to tease out some big economic or political issue facing us, not just here in Ireland but in Europe and further afield. Globalisation has brought us all together. We all face similar challenges whether you live in Dublin, London, Minnesota or Milan.

    How will Trump getting Covid affect the campaign, and why Ireland’s youth should determine the budget.

    The legend that is Professor Bill Black on the USA. This is the man who put more white collar criminals behind bars than any other. He’s an economist, lawyer and criminal psychologist and he brings this laser-like clarity to the US, four weeks from the election. We talk economics, Proud Boys, abortion and the culture war. Plus, back home why Ireland should use the budget to build houses, show vision and understand that we have the highest young population in the EU, make the budget about them.

It’s OK

Sometimes good to very good ideas but lacks substance/detail and devolves into pub chat type stuff with the fella who reads a lot and has plenty of 2nd hand interesting anecdotes. Is certainly not balanced nor investigative and although entertaining and informative is light and powered by brain farts half the time.
