  • Good show, poor podcast

    Could be much better at updating/uploading podcasts. Very sketchy at times. Kieran Cuddihy & Matt Cooper’s teams are far better at this. Sometimes miss Mary Wilson’s forensic questioning and attention to detail: has become a little fluffy. Bring back the radio column by Olivia O’Leary or Joseph O’Connor or similar. Not the best Drivetime show. Light touch.

  • Should be renamed Cormac and friends

    Used to listen to RTÉ regularly for impartial news coverage however I find that lately you favour one side of a debate and try steer listeners to think a certain way. A lot of anger in communities about the huge influx of refugees but listening to RTÉ is like entering an alternative universe the only issue seems to be government not spending tax payers money fast enough to house them.

  • Excellent presenters. Poor podcast.

    Ads every 5 minutes is insanity and too hard to listen to. This show is publicly funded yet has 20 to 100 times more ads than podcasts of comparable quality or significance eg Echo Chambers podcast.

  • Poor journalism

    How does Phillip Boucher Hayes get license to present shows. Self-important, weighty sighs, badly informed. Lots of Group Think amongst RTE, but pure poor journalism on what should be a flagship program
