Other views

Could really do with a different point of view from the US besides that left wing Niall Stanage. He mentions irrelevant news about Congresswomen Bobert and the comments she made about congresswoman Omar, but failed to mention the daily anti-semitism spewing from Omar’s disgusting hateful mouth.

Good content

Interesting guests and an attempt at an earnest discussion with the intent of informing rather than titillating.

Keeps me up to date with the Irish angles so far from home.
