  • Real & Raw

    I love Brendan on the radio. He is far removed from the ‘sticking to the script’ style of presenting I often here on R1. He actively listens and responds to answers rather than just moving on to the next question. Also very empathetic-and not afraid to show it. Please presenters, stop being ‘robots’: be real.

  • Awful host!

    I like RTE shows and they have some really talented journalists and broadcasters. However Brendan O’Connor is not at the races... he is too self indulgent and doesn’t dare invite guests on to his show who might possibly challenge his many flawed views!

  • Liberal media at its very worst!

    Very biased liberal views unashamedly rammed down listeners throats with no sign of any balance or guests with views that differ to the hosts views. The show is obsessed with Covid 19 and pedals FEAR and panic at every opportunity. Terrible content, insufferable host and bland guests! 👎
