  • Please stop talking over each other, thanks

    It’s annoying listening to three people talking over each other. Basic stuff I would have thought.

  • Politics for the Lads

    Can be an informative podcast but very much middle-aged male-focused. Any issues that relate to women are dealt with in a skittish “can’t say anything anymore” way, which seems very much a relic from the past.

  • Very informative episode on “The Identity Trap”

  • Talking about talking about immigration

    Really excellent episode. In particular Una Mullally’s points about discourse, racism not being challenged and framing immigration from the perspective of those not in favour of immigration were really thought provoking. Please talk more about these points. Law and order discussion also really interesting.
