Running mates, Leo Bows Out, Nancy & SB4 - Irishman In America with Marion McKeone

3/22/2024
This week Marion interviewed Nancy Pelosi. She recaps the conversation with comedian Jarlath Regan and together they reflect on the latest news from the campaign trail. Can Donald produce the cash to pay his bond on Monday? Is the bond amount too high? Marion has a surprising take on this one. How are we still talking about Donald Trump when Texas and other border states are allowing people to die during their attempted crossings? SB4 threatens to make this appalling situation far worse. Can it be stopped? The 5th Circuit has allowed it. Now it’s the Supreme Court’s chance to stand up but don’t count on that. Is the Supreme Court the most dangerous force in America? Is their goal to retain a white America? Surely that’s already impossible? Over in the extended episode we hear who might be Trump’s blind date running mate. He is turning this into a game show. Marion reflects on Leo Veradkar’s Washington visit and why politicians tend to resign. What kind of resignation was this? The Oscars and the future of funding for Israel brutal assault on Gaza. A new investigation has made shocking revelations about October 7th. For the whole episode each week and to support the continuation of the series visit www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad

Biden's Gaza Shame & Can Someone Else Pay Trump's Tab? - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone

2/23/2024
Unflappable. That’s one word to describe Donald Trump. In the face of being ordered to pay almost a half a billion dollars by the courts he seems unperturbed. Why? Does Marion know something we don’t know about how he plans to pay this money back? As she explains, there is no wriggling out of this one. Meanwhile rubble is being bombed in Gaza and the last remaining people fleeing the conflict pray for an end has Biden forgotten how powerful he is or wussed out? A piece in the Guardian this week has sparked a conversation around the perplexing actions of the President and how weak and heartless it is starting to make him and his foreign policy advisors look. In the final part of our episode Marion examines Liz Truss’ performance at CPAC and the company she now keeps, Nikki Hayley’s attempts to cobble together some funds to keep going, Tucker’s Russian fever dream and more.

The Road To Cobh Week 1 - Meet The Squad - Irishman Running Abroad

1/17/2024
Sonia has read every email, letter and postcard. She has deliberated long into the night to find the best collection of talent and stories to form her squad for the road to Cobh 2024. Today we reveal who they are and hear some of their inspirational journeys. Which member of the team are you most like? There's someone for everyone. You can match your training plan to their's and take the journey Cobh too. This is a one of a kind episode with something for everyone in it. Sonia explains the difference between and easy and a "regular run". It's a subject that ex-elite athlete, now elite physical therapist, Vinny Mulvey and I have been exploring for the last 60 days. For the London Marathon 2024 I'm running for Kidney Care UK and I'm using low heart rate training to build the aerobic base that failed me in Dublin last October. So far it has been a revelatory experience. At first, mind numbingly boring, then agonising, then joyous - the process of learning to run properly slow on my easy days has not been easy. Vinny takes me on the Seb Coe loop of Ashbourne, Co. Meath to explain some of the more difficult questions surrounding low heart rate training.
